Présentation de l'éditeur

Who is the real Finn?

Shad isn't happy about working with a partner undercover. He doesn't do partners, and now he's stuck with this guy named Finn. But Finn is so many different people. He can become anyone for his work. Which is the real Finn—the frightened pretty boy, the arrogant little bastard, or the friendly, humble guy who laughs at Shad's jokes?

Shad also doesn't hook up with anyone. He's been burned before and now only wants a trustworthy partner in a committed relationship. Unfortunately, he's falling for Finn….

Then life takes an unexpected turn. Shad ends up in a relationship with Finn that should be all he's ever wanted. Except for the sex. It takes time for Finn to heal enough to go to bed with him, and even then, it feels wrong somehow, as if he's not really there. But why?

Danger draws close, and secrets come out—secrets Finn never wanted to share. Is there still a way to make the relationship work? Shad needs to find out just as much as he needs to protect the man he's come to love. The man who might be in terrible danger….

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Would’ve benefitted from being longer (tiny bit of spoilage) 12 janvier 2015

If you enjoyed “Complimentary Colors” by Adrienne Wilder, then you will enjoy this (and vice-versa). That is to say, if you enjoy emotional trauma, drama and turmoil, this will be right up your alley.

This story isn’t bad, it’s just slightly crazy and slightly weird. I wanted to root for the 2 MC’s, but I found myself volleying back and forth between rooting for them and wanting to run away from them. One thing that poses a bit of a problem is when you have an MC that you can never fully understand because there is no real or complete history. Finn is extremely good at “becoming someone else” for the purpose of his work as an undercover officer. But the way that it’s described, I was thinking that maybe he was some type of magician or shape shifter (it wouldn’t be the first time Hollis has used a somewhat paranormal type character). He can not only change his physical characteristics, but his speech, posture, walk and personality, so thoroughly that people struggle to recognize him. But no, he’s just a regular – though extremely unstable – guy. Some of his background is given when the book is about 75% over, but it leaves a lot of unanswered questions in the process. Finn’s undergone years of therapy, and starts more therapy, but adding that in was almost pointless as it changes absolutely nothing. He never seems to get better, IMO. As a character, Finn is just… TOO MUCH. Shad is not a bad guy, just lonely, and I think he had a bad case of what I call “hero syndrome”, where he sees someone in great need emotionally (and sometimes mentally and financially) and bends over backwards and sideways to be everything they could possibly need. I often found myself as confused and emotionally exhausted during this story as he was. And when it got about halfway into the story, the story started moving too fast and some things were way too glossed over: Finn being found out while undercover; Shad rescuing Finn; them getting married. But Finn’s depression and how it affected Shad? Lots of details there.

What I also felt was missing from the story was some kind of background on the other officer, Joe; more background on Shad; why the other officers despised Finn so much (it was as if Finn had done something personal and specific to one or more of them); and why Finn and Shad had to run to yet another country after Avery was gone. Why couldn’t they go back to the states, since Avery was also in hiding before he came looking for them? This was a real emotional roller coaster, and I felt like there were too many loose ends. Sometimes it’s hard to pack a lot of good content into a short number of pages.

I gave this a 3 and that doesn't quite do justice to the originality and quality of writing. However this story was a little hard to swallow, partly in the improbability, but mostly because of content and characters. It might have helped if this was longer in length and had more time to explore the character development. The situation was unique and kept me interested and intrigued for sure, but it was intense. Extremely so and explored the depths of a complicated man. There slight instances of improbability nothing I couldn't over look, it's fiction after all. I think the hardest part was that while I adored Shadrick and though he was amazing on the flip side I'm not quite sure how I feel about Finn other than I definitely don't like him. I'm all for a tortured soul who I don't like at first but in the end fall for. In this instance it never happened, I never did fall for Finn. I know he was messes up and a complicated man, but if your gonna make me dislike a character for awhile I absolutely need them to redeem themselves. Finn never did. I feel sorry for him, understand and empathize with him, but I don't like him, I also don't hate him. I'm more ambivalent, like at the end I couldn't care either way, because while I liked Shadrick and the romantic in me loves an HEA I thought he deserved better. And Finn maybe did need serious help. I think I may have liked it more if it was longer to develop Finn more. But at this point I just....... don't know. The HEA did nothing for me, I finishes because the suspense and unknown compelled me to. So in general I was disappointed, the idea was great, but it just lost me. I could not make myself give more than 3 stars even though it was unique and interesting. This just didn't cut it for me. I needed more. So beware it was good but it may leave I feeling unsatisfied.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Perhaps Brilliant - But Too Short 6 septembre 2014

"The Real Finn" is very smart, very good, very engaging, but too short.

It is the curse of the format. It's why I hate short stories and can barely abide novellas. They just run out of road too soon, which means that character development has to be either shallow or too abrupt. Miss Shiloh is way too good a writer to create shallow characters, so the inevitable result of the limited number of words is that character development is way too abrupt for my taste, too abrupt for the reader to "grow" with the characters, to see their past revealed in the little tells, subtle foreshadows and to take pleasure in the unraveling of the story, like the layers of an onion.

The story is about Finn, an adorable, sexy young undercover cop whom the police are using when they need someone to sleep with a bad guy to get information. Combined with his lifetime of sexual abuse, they leave him unsure if he even exists any more. He marries another cop, Shad, for the security, the protection, but, sadly, believes that it's not about love - but about landing the man (like a campaign) who will give him safety and security.

There are problems with their marriage, Finn takes the initiative to please Shad, but he's not very much interested in his own satisfaction - that's because he's not really sure he is a real person, as opposed to the personae he's used to protect himself since he was ten years old. Shad doesn't have a clue what's going on, but he does have the patience of a saint.

"The Real Finn" is actually a character study, as opposed to a thriller or police procedural (though there's some very explicit violence and a lot about police undercover activity). It's about Shad and Finn finding the ground on which to base a shared life, to find mutual respect, and, most of all, the honesty without which no relationship can long survive.

It's a moving journey, but way too short to be really satisfactory. Ms. Shiloh spends some serious time in the lead-up to the undercover operation, but moves past it with a single sentence - the first line of the next chapter. It's like a gaping hole, one that needs to be filled with plot, drama, fear and triumph.

If you like short-form works, then by all means, don't miss "The Real Finn". If you're looking for a deeper involvement with the characters, a slower, more studied development, then read any of Ms. Shiloh's full-length novels. She is an amazing author, and you can't go wrong reading anything she's written.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Quite possibly the best book I have ever read! 23 février 2014
Par Carly (Carly's Book Reviews) - Publié sur

Shad is an undercover vice detective that always works alone. He has a hard enough time trusting himself, and doesn't want or need a partner complicating his assignments by endangering his life. So when he is paired with a fragile looking boy whose helpless eyes and dark curls are more appealing than practical, he can't imagine a worse situation than having Finn underfoot.

Finn's fragile frame and vulnerable eyes are misleading; he's a survivor. Life taught him the hard way that the only person he can rely on is himself. He's an expert at creating alternate personas by immersing himself into his characters while working undercover.

Outcasts in their own world, the two men, despite their best intentions, are irresistibly drawn towards each other. Working undercover proves to be more complicating than either man anticipated, but drawing deeply on the well honed skills each has acquired over the years, they persevere in spite of looming danger. Unbeknownst to them, the most dangerous threat to their blooming love is not the enemy that they know, but the one that is hidden deeply within.

I have long been a fan of Hollis Shiloh's work. The complexity of her characters draws readers in. Using words to draw dynamic pictures, it is impossible not to be carried away on the emotional currents found in each story. While consistently entertaining readers of the M/M romance genera, Hollis continues to branch out by offering stories from varied landscapes, including the paranormal, historical, sweet, erotic and contemporary. Known for happy endings, her characters are always honest, living life as it comes and growing from their experiences.

The Real Finn touches on the darker side of life, where shadows exist and only the strong survive. With flashbacks depicting child abuse and neglect, this is not always an easy story to read. As a survivor myself, I connected to the raw emotions portrayed; no punches were pulled here and, while not graphically detailed, the story is honest and true. Using scenes with humor, tender emotionalism and pure happiness to balance the darkness so that the story maintains its impact without being overly disturbing to readers.

I must confess that the story brought me to tears. Not pretty tears, but the sobbing, snotty nosed, red eyed, messy kind that only deep emotions can invoke. It was truly my privilege to read this story, it deeply impacted my emotions, and is one I'll be looking back on for quite some time. Not taking the opportunity to experience this profoundly intricate story would be a true crime.
