Yes, I've been on a sad streak, but I swear it's not because of my mood! This was just a crappy book!

The relationship between the two MCs in Rite of Passage was literally forced. Seriously, John, a writer who is medicated because of severe panic attacks, is set up in an isolated house in the middle of no where in Colorado (not even any postal service) with a gay, hunky neighbor, by his publicist with the hopes he will produce a manuscript for her. The neighbor is sent specifically to keep an eye...more

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, life can go terribly wrong. Things that we believed would last forever can suddenly vanish, leaving us lost and alone. In order to make sense of our lives again, we need a change. We need to separate ourselves from our past lives in order to gain perspective and reevaluate what's important. John Ashley Price of 'The Rite of Passage' by Bryl R. Tyne, was at this point in his life. He needed to experience a rite of passage, a journey away from his old life and...more

John Ashley Price is a celebrity author who has gone into hiding to escape the constant hounding from paparazzi and fans. He wants to become an island unto himself where he can write in peace and not have a soul in the world who knows who or what he is. His publisher, Carol, finds him the perfect getaway within the forested mountains of Colorado—a hick town named Divide.

Alone at his mountain retreat, John finds that his constant companion, extreme anxiety,...more
Nice book :)
I would say it's not romance or at least not strictly romance and more insight into John's inner world and I loved it! He isn't your typical romance hero and his insecurity, phobias and broken heart... you can't help, but feel for him and sympathize with him. But he isn't weak or whiny - far from it - he's just having a hard time and needs someone's shoulder to lean on. Or maybe not just shoulder :) And here comes Pet and he's perfect for that role. We don't get to know much about hi...more
Reviewed by Jamie: I have to admit, the lacklustre front cover did not inspire me to read this story, nor did the slightly slow start. I am pleased that I did however, and was soon engrossed as the tale unravelled about John, an author who moves into the woody wilderness of a small town to finish his latest book. His plan is to get over a broken heart while at the same time do some sneaky research at a nearby wildlife sanctuary, namely with wolves.

I loved how this story gathered pace, the descri...more

This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. The writing style is fluid and doesn't stray into too much description but just enough for me. John may have been a little over-the-top neurotic but I understood his issues so accepted them for what they are - having that damn picture in his bed just about tore my heart out though. I really liked Pat, his determination and kindness. I think they're a good couple in a good novel.
Ok m/m romance about an anxiety-stricken writer who moves to the Colorado Rockies for solitude and to hopefully get past his writer's block. This was hard for me to rate, since I had a hard time with the writing style and never connected with the main character.
It was a nice story but I had a hard time connecting with one of the main characters plus the ending felt strange to me.
I really enjoyed this...I thought the characters were interesting and really loved reading about them.

BRYL R. TYNE is a wrangler by nature and a writer by choice. Balancing as many pronouns as hats, somewhere between the evil day job, editing, and helping a benevolent Sugar Daddy raise the last of seven kids, Bryl writes. Homoerotic romance is a favorite, but many of Bryl’s stories cross genres. Comedy, Fantasy, Mystery, Sci-fi, even Westerns, Bryl writes them all.
