REVIEW: Equilibrium by Katey Hawthorne


Hansen, with the ability to control fire, once a stumbled upon a guy with an electrical affinity, and they’ve been close friends ever since, but he’s had to keep it cool that he’s totally loved him from day one, because Sam’s always been covered in girls. When a public emotional freak out causes them to use their power in public they’re forced to deal with the consequences of having been seen by the wrong person. It also finally brings up a mutual attraction between Hansen and Sam. With Sam needing to learn some control of his ability, dealing with the fallout from the incident, and Hansen fearing Sam’s just feeling vulnerable and not actually into him, they’ve got a lot on their plates, and as usual, it only gets worse before it gets better.

At first I was a little worried, as we jump from Hansen and Sam’s first meeting straight to four years later a tad abruptly, but all was fine from there. They’ve got a tight friendship, stemming mostly from Sam’s lack of knowledge about his ability and what it means for him and Hansen’s support. It’s a little sad for Sam at first, but it gets exponentially better once Sam coaxes the truth from him. Ho-ot!

This story’s got everything you want from a paranormal novella. You’ve got drama, danger, comedy, and sexy romance. They are so comfortable with each other in public, so sweet in private, and so playful all around. On top of that, you’ve got the special abilities. Now this gets pretty scientific in the book, but I’m not quite that brainy, so I just got the gist of what they can do and how much it requires physically to control it and such. Bottom line is that it’s a pretty neat concept and is portrayed wonderfully.

In Conclusion:

If you’re looking for an quick, easy read that’s a well rounded paranormal M/M romance, Equilibrium is an excellent choice. Just don’t read it if you’ve got something important to do, because it will certainly get your juices going…so to speak.
