Five Fact Friday - Real Warriors - book four in the When We Were Young series: #Multicultural, #MM

Five Facts about Real Warriors, book four in the When We Were Young series:

1) This is the final book in the series. Not only are René and Billy new adults now, they also finally get super busy! *wink wink*

2) The book not only takes place in Thunder Bay, and the fictional Thunder Mountain First Nation, but also Toronto and South Dakota.

3) Someone dies! Oh my, who could it be?

4) Someone is arrested. Who could that be?

5) The book goes deeper into Ojibway culture.

Five Bonus Facts about René Oshawee:

1) He drums in a rock group.

2) His favourite drink is cream soda.

3) He’s the chief’s youngest son.

4) He’s in university, and set on becoming a lawyer.

5) He’s a romantic young man hiding behind his aloof façade.

The courage of a warrior is a must on their new path, or they’ll never grasp their happily ever after.


Just when eighteen-year-old Billy Redsky believes he’s holding his happily ever after in the palm of his hand, he must practice what he’s learned in ceremony to face two more tests—share with the world his love for René, and let go of the past.

But that’s not so easy. René is terrified of exposing their secret to anyone else but his family. As for Billy’s brother, he has no intention of changing his criminal ways.

Only a miracle can help Billy reach his final destination on the red road his Ojibway ancestors once walked. For his dream to come true, he must look deep inside of himself and trust the creator he follows.

“So Chunk won’t be back until two?” Billy set the doggie bags on the kitchen table.

“Nope. Sometimes he’s not even home until four.” René entered the kitchen. He’d paused to hang up his jacket.

Billy spun on his heel. Maybe the devilish glint coursing through his veins reflected in his gaze. “C’mere.” He wiggled his finger.

René’s long legs coasted one in front of the other. His slightly broad chin was tilted a smidgen downward. The delicious grin he flashed said anything you want.

“I ought to throw you over my knee for making me wait this long.” To hell with pausing for a witty comeback. Billy snaked his fingers around the lapels of René’s shirt and tugged. He melted his mouth on René’s satin lips.

The kiss was slow and sensual, not the urgency Billy had anticipated after being apart for two months, but closer to savoring a favorite drink. He was being steered to the bedroom. His socked feet brushed the linoleum floor. The beat of his heart was loud enough to break through his shirt.

Sure, they’d made out tons of times. But feeling each other up on the sectional in the basement back home had never led to what was always forbidden until they’d gotten busted last January. When Daniel had caught them, René had been leading them, because Billy had been too nervous. This time, he stomped down his trickles of fear so he could become part of each stroke and delicious pucker bestowed on him.
