Blog Tour Review: Out of the Shadows by K. C. Wells

Out of the Shadows
by K.C. Wells
Release Date: August 15, 2017
Genre: M/M Romance

Can he step out of the shadows and into love’s light?

Eight years ago, Christian Hernandez moved to Jamaica Plain in southern Boston, took refuge in his apartment, and cut himself off from the outside world. And that’s how he’d like it to stay.

Josh Wendell has heard his coworkers gossip about the occupant of apartment #1. No one sees the mystery man, and Josh loves a mystery. So when he is hired to refurbish the apartment’s kitchen and bathrooms, Josh is eager to discover the truth behind the rumors.

When he comes face-to-face with Christian, Josh understands why Christian hides from prying eyes. As the two men bond, Josh sees past his exterior to the man within, and he likes what he sees. But can Christian find the courage to emerge from the darkness of his lonely existence for the man who has claimed his heart?

This is a pretty sweet and low angst book and infuse with some humorous moments. Christian, 32, live as a recluse for eight long years due to an accident that scarred his face. Josh, 25 is the local handyman that was assigned to fix up Christian's apartment. 

Most of their day to day interaction revolves around Josh fixing certain things in the apartment and Christian's slowly trying to come out of hiding in his bedroom and learning to enjoy human interaction again. A note I wish to point out, I'm amazed with Josh's capability on home improvements. 

Despite being a recluse, Christian isn't all depressed or suicidal, which I think make the tone of the story more upbeat. Josh is such an easy going guy and he had a bunch of crazy friends. Christian and Josh are both totally Harry Potter geek, which might make me like them immensely. Only a total hardcore reader would boost about owning both paperback and hardcover!

I enjoyed reading the little progression that Christian's make to join back the human race, it feels natural and believable without rushing it, but when they decided to become an official couple and declare their undying love to each other, that was a bit too rush. Anyway, I'm not going to begrudge them of being all happy and sappy. Looking forward to read about the other guys, Logan, Nate and Dylan.

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter…. 

K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes. 

And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….
