Overview

“Conscience isn’t something all people are born with . . .”
Gabriel Church is a portrait in contrast. It would be easy to get lost in his pale-blue eyes, ache with the need to feel the strength of his masculine frame. He appears to be nothing but animal and instinct. The only people who know the full depth of that truth are dead, murdered, or two thousand miles away.

Gabe is a serial killer. For the first time in his life, he has more on his mind than his own survival. This time he is running from Seattle to protect the only person he thinks innocent in his laundry list of crime and murder: Christian Maxwell, his biographer and unexpected lover. Drawn to a place he never thought to return, Gabe finds new and different realities. Realities that insist he let go of his tragic past, those incredible perceptions of God, and his own divinity. He must open his eyes to what the love of a good man can do to heal a broken soul.

But when the killer is confronted by his own willingness to love and sacrifice, he is forced to ultimately ask the question: Just how far will he go to save a life . . . when all he’s ever done is take them?

This is book two and you should read in order. While in book one, we spend the whole time learning about the deeds that Gabe had been up to during his career. In this one, we find out more about the man himself. What made him, why he ran, why he came back how he’s going to deal. Normally I’m not a fan of a book that is mainly a character talking to himself, but for the first half of this book, we’ve got Gabe running away from Chris and the situation. So while he’s running, he’s talking, telling us he’s story. Then he runs into Pastor Kait, then he becomes a confessor. The second half, is Gabe coming back to Chris and getting resolution to his life. While back we run into a Det. Keen which adds another layer to this very thought provoking story. I know it’s probably not a healthy relationship but I do love these two together. They are really good for each other. As good as a serial killer/co-dependent writer can be. Be aware, this is not your normal roses and wine perfect ending novel. I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review by Crystals Many reviewers

Torn and Frayed-A Gabriel Church Tale-Book 2 by Rodd Clark Serial killer Gabe is a very complex killer and for the first time in his life there's more on his mind than just surviving. Now in book 2 Gabe is running from Seattle in order to protect his biographer and lover a.k.a. Christian. Gabe never believed he would be back here but he is and he must now make the best of it. He has to let go of his past and insecurities in order to have the love from Christian but can he change who he really is? Gabe is being haunted from his amazing time with Christian and he can't forget about his biographer as Christian got into his heart very deep unlike anybody ever has. Gabe is torn with his feelings for Christian and his reality of what his life is that doesn't really allow for love or a relationship but he can't let Christian go. He now really needs to speak to Father Kit to help him figure it all out and let's hope the father can really help. The author introduces a new character of detective Scott Keen who investigates cold cases that everyone has forgotten about. So he opens up Gabes last murder case and Christian is slightly involved. Christians very nervous and he needs to hear from Gabe. He calls Christian, so is he missing him and will he let Christian know how much she loves him, I doubt it but let's hope for the best. I love the second book very much and the complicated relationship between Gabe and Christian was even more messed up but I just love these guys and the love they have for each other even though they can except it or admit to it. What a brilliant psychological MM novel this was and it had me glued to every word, this author has created a beautiful, riveting, intense, unique and hot novel and I couldn't even get enough of these men and they're very unique story. Rodd Clark created an intriguing book that at times you would want to be a part of and at times too scared to death to even think of being a part of. His brilliant writing was so spot on and detailed that I was so impressed with how he created a wonderful story. I highly recommend this novel Torn and Frayed by Rodd Clark to EVERYONE!!!
