Review: October Sun by Christopher Craven

October Sun
by: Christopher Craven
$5.99 ebook
Rebel Ink Press
Contemporary Romance / GLBT
Released: January 2011

Miles has everything he could ask for-a great job as a defense attorney, his own house, and his wonderful husband, Landon.  He's even got a new high-profile case that will net him a small fortune, if he can get the annoying playboy to cooperate.  Not even the news of Landon's upcoming family reunion can put a damper on things.  Yup, things are perfect.

Then his doctor calls.

Now Miles is struggling to come to terms with his diagnosis, while trying to deal with his job and his less than tolerant father-in-law.  Not only that, but he fears for Landon, and what the next few months will do to their relationship.  Will their love be strong enough to get them through, or will it all come crashing down around their ears?

This is a story of how one moment in time can change the course of our lives.  It shows us how one couple is determined not to let something terrible get between them, no matter how difficult it will get.  There's also a bad guy lurking in the shadows, waiting for just the right moment to strike.

This book gave you a true to life glimpse of a gay married couple and the lives they lead.  However, I did have a couple issues with the book.  One, almost everyone in the book threw an object at one point or another.  Second, the author took the story in a surprising direction (sorry, can't tell you anything) and I was left gaping at the page going, "What, no, is that allowed?" 

Other than that, it was a solid story, and I was able to relate to the characters' emotions.  It was a nice contemporary story, and it didn't take me too long to get through it.
