I don’t often give 5 star reviews.
Normally I don’t review unless it is to give a star or two and talk about how annoyed I was that I wasted my money on something I can’t return. But this book was amazing. It started off and I was hooked immediately. My first thought was that I was afraid it was going to be a super quick read like so many Kindle books are. But the author continues to fihding the story, feelings and emotions together and around, pulling in new pieces speedsell forever. My first thought upon finishing this book was that I wished there were more Kindle books available by this author.
Finding Zach Series by Rowan Speedwell
It was an amazing story, with amazing characters. I connected with both Zach and David and that is important for me, te the author is able to make us connect with the characters, with their feelings and what they are going through. I totally recommend it. One person found this helpful. Zach’s comfortable life was abruptly thrown into turmoil when he was kidnapped at age 15 by a paramilitary group whose leader kept him imprisoned, torturing him and abusing him.
Rescue is only the beginning of the long process of rediscovery and re-entry into “normal” society. The story is beautifully crafted, with flashbacks to the jungle prison and some of the abuse Zach suffered without dwelling on it or making it an erotic subject. The plot centers around David, Zach’s childhood friend and first crush, who returns to Colorado to exorcise the demons that have taken up residence with Zach’s kidnapping. As boys, Zach and David had only ever kissed once, but David’s life and relationships have been influenced by Zach ever since.
I particularly appreciated the fact that Zach’s parents were actually an important catalyst in his recovery from the abuse he suffered at the hands of his captors – they are portrayed as supportive, caring people who, in spite of their fears and their flaws, support their son through good times and bad. For all of the characters who surround Zach and support him, there is grief and guilt, and none are saints.
They are well-rounded characters with flaws, almost always believable in their motivations. The writing is outstanding – strong narrative and dialogue. Some of the reviews I read before purchasing the book address the issue of the “fast forward” from Zach’s rescue to 2 years afterwards. I also would have liked to have seen more of Zach’s recovery during this period, perhaps through flashbacks, but I didn’t feel that the lack of narrative from this period hurt the quality of the book overall.
It was just that the rest of the book was so good, I’d have enjoyed more of it! Solid writing, intriguing and engaging plot, and strong characters populate this wonderful book.
Well worth your time to read, and with a realistic and touching HEA to top it all of! Kidnapped at 15, taken from his family and loved ones, he has endured Then a rescue attempt by US forces in Venezuela for kidnapped scientists turns up a young man, starved and beaten and abused, collared and on a leash.
The pet of a cruel and dangerous petty tyrant. Four years older than Zach, he watched him grow from a little boy into a young man. And when Zach kisses him, it triggers feelings and panic and fears in David. So he and Zach’s parents think it best if Zach has some time away. And that is when he is kidnapped. And David is frantic.
As he lives his life, unable to move past his feelings for Zach, he cannot find a man who moves him like Zach. And when Zach is found, David is ecstatic. Until Zach refuses to see him. For two long years, Zach tries to heal. Physically, mentally, emotionally scarred, Zach is not the same and never will be. After all, his mother is the housekeeper for Zach’s family, and the two families are tight, old friends.
But when he finally sees Zach, it is in a bar. And Zach has changed. He is a hard, angry man. Can the two reconnect? Or will what Zach suffered and the secrets he holds from his capture come between the men and keep them apart? This is a rare and wonderful book. Rowan Speedwell has taken a young man and subjected him to horrors which would break most men, then brought him back.

Shows him to us with all his pains and fears and anger and doubts. And then shows us another young man who has felt the pain of guilt, separation and fear. Then she reunited the two and makes us watch all the love and pain and hate and grief play out. This is an amazing study of how love can survive against all odds. How the human spirit is so much stronger than hate. How hope can bloom in desert soil. And how life and love and living go on and thrive in the face of secrets and fear.
