Books With LGBT+ Characters

lgbt+

Hello people! This is Pride Month, so I thought it was about time to do a post about some of the books I read which had LGBT+ main characters, secondary (important) characters and/or dealt with LGBT issues.

#Rev (GearShark #2) (Cambria Hebert)

REV

Trent Mask puts the REV in revolution.
A line has been drawn.
Indie vs Pro
Here at GearShark, we’re straddling that line to bring you exclusive coverage of what some have dubbed the war of racing.
Every war starts with a spark and ends in revolution.
Drew Forrester was the spark,
but his second-in-command is the REVolution.
What does it take to stand brave in the face of opposition?
Resolve of steel…
Stubborn will…
And a heart that refuses to give up.
It isn’t just the drivers in this war.
The revolution is about more than just racing.
It’s about shattering labels and taking risks.
So we asked Trent Mask: Truth or Dare?
His answer?
Both.

Check out the full feature article inside…

*This is book 2 in the GearShark series.
This book contains french fries, fast cars and two men in love.


A little while back I reviewed the first book of this series, #Junkie, be sure to read that review, because it’s quite difficult for me to separate both books completely.

#Rev starts exactly where #Junkie lets off, with the aftermath of an horrible attack on Trent and the couple dealing with it. Trent is clear in what he wants, he never ever wants Drew to be in danger, he can’t bear the thought of the love of his life being hurt. But Drew doesn’t accept that easily, and had to fight to convince Trent that they’re better together, stronger.

While in the first book they both have to come to terms with their sexuality and their feelings towards one another, in this second book they have to deal with what the world thinks of their love and how the people they love will react. That’s the whole theme of this book: the coming out.

I liked this second book better than the first one. I thought that their voices were more distinct, the fact that I had already read a whole book about them helped a lot, and their romance was even sweeter and more swoon-worthy than book 1. There’s no doubt that these 2 were meant to be. It also has less car racing in it, which is good in my opinion.

I did feel like the book dragged a bit, and it was over the top romantic and extra sweet at times. As well as some strong co-dependency… let’s chalk it out to the honeymoon period that never faded. I also disliked some of the reactions they got to their relationship. Although negative backlash was to be expected, I somehow thought they would have some support from at least some important people in their lives…

To sum it up, this was an enjoyable duology, and Trent and Drew have their own (small) space on my heart. If you enjoy a good M/M romance, give this series a try.
