Unwrapping Hank
Bookreview / December 23, 2014

This book should be placed in this time of year, with Christmas just around the corner. As you can see from the picture on the front, a little holiday cheer is in order here. The story is about Sloane, who finds himself at University with little or no friends. He decides to join a fraternity in order to get to know some people. One of the people he lives with is Hank Springfield, a tough guy to look at with lots of muscles, tattoos and a beard. He is also the brother of the frat captain Micah. Sloanes parents decide to cancel their plans for Christmas, leaving Sloane stranded. Micah invites him to come along to his parents for the holiday, which means Hank will also be there.

Elliot is the new doctor in town. Fresh from the city and still trying to find his ground in this small town. Hank comes to Elliot with a small injury and the attraction is instant between the boys. But can they keep the relation a secret in this small town? And is it really necessary to do so? In the end, do we choose love or life? The story is great, the build up slow but sure. The relation between the boys is slowly developing, starting out with glances and ending in very explicit sex scenes. Both boys must decide what they want to do and if they…
