Quinn’s Need by SJD Peterson
Sequel to Lorcan’s Desire – A Whispering Pines Ranch Novel
It’s been a year since Lorcan James left Whispering Pines Ranch, and Quinn Taylor has barely recovered. Only two things keep him from falling into the abyss of despair: his work at the ranch and his escape into the world of BDSM at a club called The Push. At The Push, the sound of men begging him helps drown out the bitter memory of his own voice begging Lorcan to stay.
When Lorcan comes back to Pegasus, the same blistering heat simmers between them, but almost nothing has changed. Lorcan is still with Jess, the man he left the ranch with, and Quinn has captured the attention of Ty Callahan, a man who will beg Quinn for anything, anytime, and any way Quinn wants it. Despite how much he wants Lorcan, Quinn swears he’ll never beg a man again. If there’s one thing Quinn has learned the hard way, it’s that not even begging can fill love’s aching need.
This book was better than the first. I still didn’t really like Quinn. I thought better of him by the end but he was a HUGE jerk at the beginning. He was using others, being horrible with his “family”, and just not caring about any of it. I can understand being upset and even depression but the way he dealt with it was just horrible. Jess and Lorcan move back to Jess’s ranch in this book. Jess knows about Lorcan’s continued love for Quinn. It is never hidden. I still feel that Jess deserves better than that and so does Lorcan.
Lorcan has grown up a lot in the lost year away. Jess has had a calming and maturing affect on him. Now Lorcan actually listens and has patience. Jess really seems like the Mr. Wonderful he is labeled. Now what happens to the two in the course of the book, Jess shows he is only human. He has feelings too and I thought he would never wake up to himself.
The plot of the story is good and makes sense. Yes, it is convenient what happens in the course of the story but this is FICTION, people. I thought the ending actually wrapped up some things well. The only thing that bothered me was the treatment of Ty. He wasn’t promised anything but Quinn’s actions spoke different. The writing was smooth and gave me no overt bumps. I enjoyed how the author set up the situations to see the different interactions of the characters. The characters grew and changed. They all seemed natural and smooth except Quinn. It was way too drastic a change in his attitude. It really seemed drastic and sudden to me as well as too easily done!
Overall I enjoyed the book. The story and characters were more easily related to and drew me in more. Quinn still gave me some issues but I was happier with his character in this story. I will be looking into reading the next book in the series.
