Rain (Rules of Engagement Book 2) by LA Witt

Dreamspinner Presents


Sequel to Rules of Engagement

Brandon Stewart and Dustin Walker started dating two years ago after meeting in the local bar over a game of pool. Dustin has struggled to come out to his homophobic family and come clean about his relationship with Brandon, and now they’re planning to get married. Now, in a bid to fix broken ties, Dustin’s brother Tristan is trying to reconnect with him, which makes Brandon wonder if he, too, can mend fences with his own estranged brother. But is sixteen years of silence long enough for old wounds to heal?



THANK GOD for this sequel. I wanted so badly to love Rules of Engagement, but it ended on such a weak note. I NEEDED some ILYs and some commitment from these guys and this book gives it to us!

Granted, there’s still some angst – Dustin’s mother is still not talking to him and Tristan is still not quite sure what to make of things – and – Brandon’s brother is a raging a**hole but… the boys have got things figured out between them and most of the world is right as far as they’re concerned.

I didn’t love the way the book ends – it felt a bit rushed – but it was very satisfying and I was so glad to see them settled so far down the road.

So… as I promised, this book makes up for the holes left behind in Rules of Engagement and I highly recommend it to fans of book one.

4.5 of 5 stars
