Callan’s Atlas Blurb:
From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a steamy and emotional age-gap MM romance!
When we moved from New York to Maine, life was supposed to get easier, not harder.
Change, for me, was difficult.
I became the target of terrible crimes that resulted in sending a once-beloved man of the community to prison for a very long time.
Now that I’m eighteen, I could move back to the Big Apple, but fear has me rooted in place.
I hate what that monster did to me.
Looks like I’m stuck here for good.
Brigs Ferry Bay’s unhappiest gay.
Each day, the darkness closes in around me more and more.
Black clothes. Black mood. Black thoughts. Black eyeliner.
The color in my life bled from me months ago and never came back.
Newest cop on the BFB police force.
Too hot. Too strong. Too old for me. Too…everything.
Atlas is a rebellious, bossy, mouthy brute who likes to provoke me.
Every encounter starts with heat and ends with an argument.
Color begins sneaking back into my world little by little.
He reminds me of who I once was and shows me who I’m meant to be.
I crave to leave this town once and for all.
But now that I’ve found the courage to do it, the arrogant jerk with a badge might find a way to keep me here and in his arms forever.
***Brigs Ferry Bay is a steamy MM romance series. While each book can be read as a standalone, in order to get the full experience, they’re best read in order. Enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, hurt comfort, age-gap romance, and so much more. Fall in love with the charming small-town gay romances of Brigs Ferry Bay…***
While you could technically read Callan’s Atlas as a standalone, I really suggest that for a better understanding of everything Callan has been through, you need to at least read Sheriff’s Secret, book 1 in the series, before.
My heart broke for Callan, the poor guy has been through a lot and is still dealing with it. Of course, living with his older siblings Dante and Shelley, Jax (Dante’s fiancé and Brigs Ferry Bay’s sheriff), and Zak (Jax’s brother and Callan’s friend with benefits), really doesn’t help matters, as they’re smothering Callan. Enter Atlas, Brie’s brother, and Jax’s new deputy. He’s older than Callan, but age really doesn’t play a part here. He knows just what Callan needs, and isn’t afraid to give it to him or to protect him without suffocating Callan.
I loved that Callan flourished under Atlas’s care. He probably needed therapy, too, but it was nice to see him using colors again and finding joy in his art.
Atlas was the perfect antihero, a swoon-worthy rebel determined to shake things up in Brigs Ferry Bay and deal with the homophobes that are trying to mess with Callan. Bonus that they’re some of the people who chased Atlas out of Brigs Ferry Bay.
The chemistry between Atlas and Callan was out of this world. Atlas was so deliciously dirty and he and Callan were just amazing together.
I was a bit disappointed that the bad guys didn’t get more of a comeuppance, but not enough to detract from how much I enjoyed reading this book. I’m already looking forward to Fernando’s story, which comes next, but the ones I want the most are Cato, Zak, and Cormac’s. Highly recommendable, just don’t forget to read book 1 (and 2 and 2.5, trust me, you’ll love them) first.

~ * ~ Amy‘s Review ~ * ~
Everyone’s a little broken, but some are more than others.
My heart ached for Callan and what he’s going through because of what happened to him. Physical injuries may heal, but the mental imprint lives on indefinitely. The author writes in such a way that you feel what the characters are feeling, whether it’s a main character or a side character. You feel Callan’s despair, you feel Atlas’ sass and strength, and you also feel Zak’s unrequited love. Even in the little things, there’s importance, and I appreciated how the author paid attention.
Atlas was a great big ball of lovable jack a$$ with a heart of gold. You could feel their connection from the moment they met. You could tell they both recognized themselves in the other. While one embraced it, one needed a minute. I loved how you saw that things were going on around them, but it was like it was all in slow motion, with only them visually exploring each other’s features while also seeing into each other’s soul. It was details like this that made this story truly captivating.
This was a well-written, heartfelt story and I’m glad I got a chance to read it. The characters, both new and familiar, were a delight to spend time with. This series has been quite enjoyable. I’m glad I gave it a chance; you should, too.

~ * ~ Jo‘s Review ~ * ~
This is book 1 in the Brigs Ferry Bay series. So, I actually got asked to review book 3 and I realised I hadn’t read the first two. So I decided to start at the beginning. Some series you just need to. In this case, you really need to have read book 1 before book 3 as the plot from book one sets up the events in book 3. So don’t hate me, but I actually think you need to read them in order (and fit in the novellas) to get the full enjoyment. Please believe me, this is no hardship, in fact, I think you’ll thank me. This is a really, really great series. Fantastic couples, yes, but there are great plots and real depth to the stories that make these books addictive.
I’ve loved all of them but there’s always something about your first. Jaxson stole my heart. Closeted and still living in the shadow of not being brave enough to claim his first love, this man will make you weep. The tones of desperation when he begs to be given the time to be the man Dante wants; the shame he feels; the fears. I wanted to scream at the people of Brigs Ferry to really see this man. Thank god Dante does. Dante is the newcomer to the town, he may be the outsider but he sees beneath the mask that Jaxson wears. He shouldn’t want Jaxson, but he does. The snark, the banter, the heat, the power plays, but most of all the love, are all amazing. I did such a happy dance when these two found their HEA.
The plot for this story is so great, too. It sets the scene for their story but a lot more goes on than just them falling in love. Jaxson is having to deal with a hate campaign against Dante and his younger brother. There’s a whole cast of great supporting characters that you just can’t wait to have their stories. The whole story kept me gripped; I loved it.
This is a must-read for me. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

This is book 2 in the Brigs Ferry Bay series. So, I actually got asked to review book 3 and I realised I hadn’t read the first two, so I decided to start at the beginning. Some series you just need to. As I said in my review of book 1, don’t hate me, but I actually think you need to read them in order (and fit in the novellas) to get the full enjoyment. Please believe me, this is no hardship, in fact, I think you’ll thank me. This is a really, really great series. Fantastic couples, yes, but there are great plots and real depth to the stories that make these books addictive.
We met Kian in Book 1; he’s the guy that Jaxson wouldn’t claim and this has hung over him since then. Out and proud, he is jaded for one so young for another and spends his time running his bar and hooking up. Archer is still in mourning for his dead partner. It was easy to leave his home to come to support his sister. As with all the books, the plot is the setting for these two getting their HEA. These stories aren’t sugar-coated, the people feel pain, make mistakes, and bad things happen. However, there’s never a time when you think you’re going to be left broken-hearted. You just know it’s going to be a bit of an emotional roller coaster on the way. Archer is absolutely in denial in this story, over the state of his sister’s mental health and that he can handle being friends with benefits—just to mention two. Their journey to their HEA is totally addictive. I read this in one sitting.
This series is a must-read for me. They are beautiful love stories about people whose lives aren’t always easy but absolutely deserve their HEA.

This is book 3 in the Brigs Ferry Bay series. As I said in my review of book 1, don’t hate me, but I actually think you need to read them in order (and fit in the novellas) to get the full enjoyment. Please believe me, this is no hardship, in fact, I think you’ll thank me. This book relates to events in book 1 as they are what lead to Callan’s current mental health. This is a really, really great series. Fantastic couples yes, but there are great plots and real depth to the stories that make these books addictive.
Everybody needs an Atlas in my opinion. Oh, be still my beating heart. He’s a totally dirty, overprotective, dominating, loving hunk of a man. He pushes, challenges, and loves Callan until Callan can do nothing else but feel for the first time since his attack. While the others in Callan’s life are smothering him—trying to keep him safe—Atlas sees that Callan needs to fight until he chooses to surrender. He understands that Callan may be young but after everything he has been through, he’s had to grow up and he knows what he wants.
I loved these two. They are seriously, seriously hot together but there is an emotional core to their story that draws you in. They may, on paper, look like they’d never work, but together they are perfect. Atlas says it best when he says “You know what happens when you put two broken people together?” “What?” “You get something whole.”
An absolute must-read for me.
