    Welcome to the world of gargoyles and beyond. Rodney happens to be a gargoyle fascinated with the human race, especially one very handsome human. David Marshall enters Rodney’s world at a time when he needs a friend and Rodney turns out to be a very special friend. 
    Raincheck is a very interesting look into the interactions between these two men. As a gargoyle, Rodney protects his identity until David needs him most. The story is full of twists and turns. It is a quick read that makes for a very pleasant evening’s worth of diversion. . You’ll have to read the book, because it sizzles and I do not want to give too much away.

    The description of this book states that the character(s) are lonely. I've read that before in descriptions; but the author, Sarah Madison, truely achieved that feeling. For me, this is the first time that a book evoked such abiding sadness and loneliness in and for the character. Your heart will just break for the Rodney/gargoyle character. Rodney is a very likable character and despite his century plus age, his gentle heart and naiveté are endearing.

    The story sets up the pending intimate relationship between the duo in a believable way. Rodney and human, Dave, have a chance meeting where Rodney from the shadows calls BS on Dave's "I can't escape my guilded cage" excuse at an unhappy life. Over the course of a long period Dave seeks out Rodney despite never getting a glimpse of Rodney. Dave respects Rodney's desire to stay in the shadows, but values his conversations and budding friendship with Rodney. During this period of time Rodney is developing strong emotional ties and beyond friendly feelings for Dave. Rodney looks over Dave without Dave's knowledge and one night comes to his rescue. Dave's acceptance of Rodney as a gargoyle is really quite cute. It's at this part where the reader starts to see Dave's deeper feelings for Rodney as well. The cumination of the relationship is very tame with the focus being more on the feelings and not so much on the sexual act. Liking the characters so much, I would have liked a little bit more graphic description of their interlude as it felt a little abrupt. Overall, it was a very sweet and heartfelt story.
