Wrong Way Home by K.A. Merikan Blog Tour

One wrong turn. One right man.

Colin. Rule-follower. Future doctor. Witness to murder. Captive.
Taron. Survivalist. Mute. Murderer. Captor.

Like every other weekend, Colin is on his way home from university, but he’s taunted by the notion that he never takes risks in life and always follows the beaten path. On impulse, he decides to take a different route. Just this one time. What he doesn’t realize is that it’s the last time he has a choice.

He ends up taking a detour into the darkest pit of horror, abducted by a silent, imposing man with a blood-stained axe. But what seems like his worst nightmare might just prove to be a path to the kind of freedom Colin never knew existed.

Taron has lived alone for years. His land, his rules. He’d given up on company long ago. After all, attachment is a liability. He deals with his problems on his own, but the night he needs to dispose of an enemy, he ends up with a witness to his crime.

The last thing Taron needs is a nuisance of a captive. Colin doesn’t deserve death for setting foot on Taron’s land, but keeping him isn’t optimal either. It’s only when he finds out the city boy is gay that an altogether different option arises. One that isn’t right, yet tempts him every time Colin’s pretty eyes glare at him from the cage.

This book is part of CRIMINAL DELIGHTS. Each novel can be read as a standalone and contains a dark M/M romance.

Warning: These books are for adult readers who enjoy stories where lines between right and wrong get blurry. High heat, twisted and tantalizing, these are not for the fainthearted.
This story contains scenes of explicit violence, offensive language, morally ambiguous characters.

Please read all the trigger warnings before starting this book. While I didn't find the book to be dark, several might. This book was more angst to me than dark. I'm not going to repeat what the blurb says about this book; it was a tad twisted but so not what I expected. I actually loved the bickering between Taron and Colin and after finishing the book, it was kind of a sweet book in a weird kind of way. I loved how well Taron and Colin meshed together. Colin was finally "free" from his daily obligations and could just be. I also enjoyed the cats. These two went through so much in the past but what will happen in the end? You'll have to read the book to find out. You won't be disappointed!

Colin is living a life that isn't really his own. He works hard but doesn't really have friends and is seeking his parents' approval, despite doing what they have planned out for his life. When it becomes abundantly clear that he needs some kind of change, he heads on a different path towards his family dinner. What he doesn't expect is to come across someone who is running for their life.

Taron is living a solitary life. He knows what he signed up for. With a trauma in his past, Taron knows that he has to fend for himself because nobody else is going to help him. Taron is a difficult character to get to know. He keeps to himself and really only lets people see a glimpse of who he is.

When Colin and Taron meet, it's a difficult situation for both of them. Where this story turns for me is when it appears that the only way to survive is to comply with whatever Taron wants. Colin knows that he wants to survive. What he doesn't realize is that Taron is going to show him a way of living that he never expected.

I'm not sure if I really enjoyed this book. There is a lot going on and while I liked how the author was able to develop each character and their reactions to each other, the overall story was not something I really enjoyed. The writing was well done and the characters were well developed, but I don't think "liked" is what I would say about this book.

K.A. Merikan are a team of writers who try not to suck at adulting, with some success. Always eager to explore the murky waters of the weird and wonderful, K.A. Merikan don’t follow fixed formulas and want each of their books to be a surprise for those who choose to hop on for the ride.

K.A. Merikan have a few sweeter M/M romances as well, but they specialize in the dark, dirty, and dangerous side of M/M, full of bikers, bad boys, mafiosi, and scorching hot romance.
