Unfortunate Son is the first part in the Sons series by Shae Connor and it…
Nobody’s Son is part 3 in the Sons series by Shae Connor. I already read part 1 and part 2, so this part was definitely on my TBR list. Part 3 focuses on Shaun Rogers, who we already met in the previous parts. Every other character from par 1 and 2 will return also, but only to serve as background for the story. And I can say part 3 is a great addition to the series, I read it with great pleasure.
Shaun Rogers has a job working the front desk of a “clothing optional” gay resort, owned by his friend Jimmy. Shaun is also gay, but nobody knows that yet. Or at least not that many people know about it. Shaun is afraid most of all to tell his religious grandmother, afraid of what she will say. He still lives in her basement after his mother died. He doesn’t even know who his father is.
One day in walks Conrad “Con” Brooks to install a new IT system in the resort. Shaun is immediately drawn to the older IT guy, but afraid to act on his feelings. It could never lead anywhere after all and he is not one for casual flings.
And to make matters worse, suddenly some guy is calling Shaun claiming to be his father and wanting contact. Shaun has no idea if this guy is for real or not, but he has to know for sure. After all, he really wants to know who his father is and why he left when he did. Is this guy for real or not?
All things combined, Shaun is thrown of balance and has no idea what he wants or needs anymore. His life is spiraling out of control and there is nothing he can do about it. Is there anyone who can help him and sort things out?
Of course Con comes to the rescue, but by doing so he is forcing Shaun to make a decision he might not be ready to take just yet. Will there be any future for them at all?
As you can tell from the title there is something family related in all these books and in my opinion that is what makes them so strong. There is no stronger bond than family after all and when that is put to the test, true strength must rise and show its worth. Shae Connor is a master of writing these stories and make you feel very much for the characters. If you like the other parts, be sure to read this one !!
