But I've re-read this enough times it obviously didn't change my enjoyment of the story over all that Cade was an ass. View all 22 comments.
May 20, Montana rated it did not like it Shelves: My dislike for this book runs pretty deep, so those who don't like to read negative reviews should consider this fair warning. From the very beginning, I didn't find either Ren or Cade a particularly sympathetic character. Ren's sexual relationship with Tex— particularly the way he went from frustrated and resentful of the limitations Tex imposed on their relationship to an immediate rationalization of his acceptance of those limitations—set off warning bells for me.
Still, his conflicted feeling My dislike for this book runs pretty deep, so those who don't like to read negative reviews should consider this fair warning. Still, his conflicted feelings could have been indicative of a character trait that would build tension throughout the book: Sadly, though, this wasn't his only character flaw.
He's also immature, spoiled, and has abandonment issues of epic proportions. Oddly, even though Cade is the older of the two by nearly a decade, he's even more emotionally immature than Ren. There are constant hints dropped about the trauma in his past that left him repressed to the point of non-functional in a relationship context.
The reveal, which finally comes near the end of the book, doesn't have nearly enough impact to justify all the hype along the way. Like Ren, Cade has a laundry list of what are presumably meant to be quirky or interesting character traits, but they mainly serve to remind the reader that he's fictional. Despite his complete inexperience, Cade is set up as the relationship expert, dispensing sage advice and even lecturing Ren on the ways in which Ren has wronged him.
Ren, of course, recognizes the wisdom in Cade's words and sees the error of his ways, at least until they do it all over again. At best their relationship feels like a co-dependent mess and at worst like mutual emotional abuse. We're told that when they have sex it's transcendent and life-changing, but neither of them seems to change as a result of it. Each time Ren realizes how much he cares for Cade and each time Cade runs away as soon as it's over.
That lack character growth is a problem that plagues the whole book, in fact. The conflicts that keep them from their happily ever after are repetitive, too, and don't grow organically from the plot. The failures of communication are overly melodramatic even by romance-trope standards, and the ultimate conflict that leads to an apparently permanent break-up is so clearly manufactured by the author without regard for any kind of logic that it makes it impossible to suspend disbelief.
This is a very long book that could've been cut by at least a third if not half by a good editor with a sharp red pencil and a willingness to roll up her sleeves and really dig in. Honestly, though, I'm not sure even a good edit could've saved it, because the characters are so unlikeable that even after cutting away all the excess padding, you'd still be left with two self-absorbed people who should be in therapy instead of in love.

I was swept away by the characters really fast.
Renecade (Hawkins Ranch)
Cade is a sweet and reserved man but someone who need love. A very bad experience in the past push him somehow to keep away from everyone and to trust no one. Ren is a young stud who seems full of life and confidence but he is extremely insecure. Their connection is intense and fragile at the same time, their need for each other makes them both frightened and clumsy.
I thought "it will take years Renecade is a superb story, really moving and intense. I thought "it will take years" lol. But even if the word "L" was not pronounced or much less thought i could feel it.
Then "the mistake" is done and it hurt so much I cried a lot till the end There is a back story about sabotage that has a surprising end. View all 8 comments. Sep 30, Heather rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Oh my god this book was so awesome!! I might have to add this to my top 5 favorite erotica books.
Cade is a physically scarred police officer working in Montana near the Hawkins ranch. He keeps himself all closed up and emotionally unattached to prevent something horrific from happening all over again.

However Cade has a hard time staying detached around Ren. Ren is the sheriffs son, and Cade has had a thing for him for a long time. When Cade overhears a private conversation between Ren an Oh my god this book was so awesome!! When Cade overhears a private conversation between Ren and his friend Risa, he finds out Ren is gay. Now, Cade really has to stay away from Ren so that- A.
Ren is so attracted to Cade despite the scars that mar half of his face. When Cade is in a small car accident, Ren rushes out to see what happened and they share a scorching kiss. Cade pulls away, determined not to let Ren get to him. Ren feels slighted and so he tries to stay away. After a dramatic turn of events, Cade and Ren have a passion filled night together, and from this point on, the drama really begins. Can they manage to make it work even though they have to hide their new relationship? Misunderstandings and much drama ensues while they try to figure it out.
It was so freakin good! This story has so much romance, angst, drama, heartache and passion, that I couldnt put it down until I was done. This is one of the few erotic romances I've read that really gives you that gut-wrenching ache when things aren't working out, or that elated high when things are going well. I highly recommend this book by Cameron Dane, although you really should read Demon Moon, and Falling first. View all 4 comments. Jul 11, ElaineY rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
To view it, click here. This is one book I would have liked to have bought in print. One thing I'm beginning to notice as I read more gay romances, is that the authors allow infidelity after the romance has begun. For example, in this book, Ren cheats on Cade during as low point in their new relationship. Granted, they may be some that I haven't come across but in my opinion, they're rare. I really like that Renecade is filled with so much emotion.
The sex is much, much more explicit than many I've read so if this is going to be your first gay romance, be warned. Renecade brings to mind all the old romances once written - full of angst, psycho drama and the expected - and necessary - emotive HEA. View all 5 comments.
Jul 17, Fonzie rated it it was ok Recommends it for: I've been reading some of Cameron Dane's books. They are a fun read not really deep, it is smut, after all , although I tend to skip the lengthy sex descriptions. Who can get it up 5 times in one night anyway? Sadly, I couldn't even remotely enjoy this one.
See a Problem?
The characters were good, the premise was interesting First, everything gets spelled out. If an author feels the need to explain everything in great detail she is not doing a good job I mean yes, thank you, we get that Ren sidestepped a question by denying one part of it and leading the good deputy by his nose, but why does it have to be spelled out so much in detail we lose the point of the story? Then the second, the whole cheating idea threw me for a loop. So far the story is about Cade fucking Ren, Cade getting his panties in a twist after the sex, Cade leaving Ren and not talking to the hapless guy for weeks.
Again and again and again. Then comes a glitch when Ren gets ignored for about 2 weeks and has some comfort sex with someone else. As a predictable plot twist, Cade sees the whole thing and once again gets his panties in a major twist, claiming that Ren cheated on him. And I thought I was reading about two guys, silly me. Well, last I checked you need to be in a relationship first before you can actually cheat on said person.
Not to mention if someone treats you like dirt a fuck buddy and never says he actually cares for you he definitely has no claim on you whatsoever. It can't be expected of somebody to take being ignored and rebuffed in stride and wait around forever just in case Silent Sam decides to actually tell him he loves him and wants him.
That's far-fetched, pointless angst right there. Where the hell did that come from? No sign of Ren being afraid of actually getting into a relationship whatsoever in the story so far. I think it's just a f-ed up attempt at trying to justify the "cheating" that doesn't even constitute as cheating. It feels like putting a center-piece over the wine-stain on the table cloth. And the angst still won't end. They fuck, Cade bails out, they spend some time apart, they fuck, Cade gets his panties in a twist I'm thinking of making this book into a drinking game.
I'm wondering if an editor has ever read this.
- Renecade (Hawkins Ranch). Cameron Dane.
- Bentham: Volume 1 (Political Thinkers).
- ReneCade (Hawkins Brothers/Quinten, Montana, #3) by Cameron Dane.
- Skies of Fire!
- Bestselling Series.
- Les Contes de la toupie (French Edition).
- Private Melody (Mills & Boon Kimani) (Kimani Romance)?
I'm pretty sure the answer is no. Things happening behind the scenes, melodrama, affairs, duplicitous parents, secrets being kept, and even some plotting going on. It's hard to break down this story without giving anything away and, really, without the surprise factor this book is just angst for angst's sake. When someone is especially melodramatic in a book I say that they are having a Marlon Br Betrayal! When someone is especially melodramatic in a book I say that they are having a Marlon Brando "Stella! Ren and Cade have one Marlon Brando moment after another, back to back.
I mean, these men are on their knees in the middle of a deserted street, heads thrown back, screaming, sobbing, and tearing their shirts with their bare hands. It's bordering on ridiculous. The sex in this book is hot. Hot and dramatically angst-filled. It's like sex is a life and death situation for these men.
I saw what the author was going for but I wanted to say "Seriously guys, if you don't dial down the intensity I think you might pop something vital". So, why the three stars? Because it's Cameron Dane and somehow, even when I wanted to smack these men upside their heads, I still kept reading.
I wanted them to be happy because all of that torment needed to pay off for them. In the end it did pay off. Thank God because if it hadn't I would have been the one having a Marlon Brando moment.

This has many long explicit sex scenes between two men. Personally, I found myself skimming the sex scenes. I prefer more emphasis on characters and plot. The story line was ok, but it could have been better. The main conflict is that Cade would not forgive something Ren did. What Ren did was stupid, but he did have some justification. Then Cade held his grudge for an excessively long time. But there is This has many long explicit sex scenes between two men.
But there is a happy ending. A secondary story involved someone vandalizing property. I would have liked more about that. It took energy to keep them straight: Cade, Caleb, Cain, Connor, and Crash. Kindle count story length: Number of sex scenes: Jun 29, Renee rated it really liked it. I really liked this book but I have to say there were a few things I just didn't get: I mean if I'd went out with a guy that just came to me where i was camping and we immediately had hot sex then did it again the next day but then he doesn't call in a week so i had to call him Instead of waiting for his call and invite him to the rodeo and you can tell he's not that thrilled about it.
But on the way home you have steamy sex again plus a lot of talking but not abo I really liked this book but I have to say there were a few things I just didn't get: But on the way home you have steamy sex again plus a lot of talking but not about feelings. Then after not hearing from The guy in four days you stop by his work where he basically ignores you and leaves and you don't hear from him for a week and a half.
How would you feel. I know id think he's an ass. Now I know the reader knows how Cade feels but Ren is not a mind reader. He just sees this as a repeat of his last relationship.
