Waylon's Awakening by Quinn Ward


Waylon's Awakening is the latest kinky story from Quinn Ward, and the first in their new Heart of Harmony Grove series!

From the blurb:

A divorced teacher. His former student. Are they about to be taught a lesson in love?
I’ve always been the nurturing type. I mean, I’m a teacher, I’ve got three kids – the very model of responsible, mentoring manhood, right? Well, now my wife has divorced me and my mother needs surgery, so I guess I’m moving back home in my forties.

It’ll be a good chance to figure out what comes next.

I wasn’t expecting the answer to that question to be Jasper.

He’s a former student running his own salon, and apparently thanks to me, he’s so far out of the closet he’s not even in the house anymore. Mom is one of his favorite customers, and after her surgery, she suggests I rent the apartment over his studio. It seemed like a good arrangement.

But things start happening.

When we clean out the place, we grow close. It’s obvious he needs someone to take care of him. And I’m feeling things I never believed I could.

I can’t do anything about them, though. He’s half my age. What would my children think? And to the outside world, I’m straight.

What will the citizens of Harmony Grove say when they find out I’ve been keeping a secret most of my life?

Waylon's Awakening is the compelling first book in the Harmony Grove M/M romance series. If you like tender characters, bisexual discovery, and finding love in unexpected places, then you’ll adore Quinn Ward’s soulful, steamy story.

Heather's Review:

Waylon's Awakening is a fairly low angst small town second chance, bisexual awakening, slightly kinky story with just enough outside tension to add some spice to the story.  I wish that some of the little tidbits that Quinn Ward dropped into the story would have been expanded on, and that the kink was just a little more structured, but it was a very sweet story to read and a good start to the series.  I can't wait to see how Teddy and Shiloh's story evolves, and who's next on the radar for a story - I'm hoping for Shaun...
