Released after five years in the system for assault, streetwise Edgar-Allen Church is ready to leave the past behind and finally look to his future. In need of a place to crash, he's leaning on Miller Quinn. A patient, solidly masculine pillar of strength and support, Miller has always been there for him—except in the one way Church has wanted the most.

With his staunchly conservative upbringing, Miller has been playing it straight his whole life. Now with Church so close again, it's getting harder to keep his denial intact. As they fumble their way back to friendship after so many years apart, Miller struggles to find the courage to accept who he really is. What he has with Church could be more than desire—it could be love. But it could also mean trouble.

Church's criminal connections are closing in on the both of them, and more than their hearts are at risk. This time, their very lives are on the line.

Loose Cannon by Sidney Bell is the first in the Woodbury Brothers series. This is a really emotional read. Church has gone through a lot in this book. He goes from being an angry youth to a less angry man with a future. I liked meeting his friends along the way makes me want more from this series. I would love to see how they turn out later on.
Edgar Allen Church or just Church as he would have it, he is a boy who likes to use his fists a lot. This gets him in jail for manslaughter. When he gets released years later he is a little lost. Lucky for him his one friend has always seen through the anger in Church to the man he could become with someone believing in him.
Church is a very strong, loyal, and don't tell him I said this part but he is loving too. He feels things deeply but does not want to let others know that.
Miller has always been there for Church. Miller thinks he is straight but Church is the one boy he could never get out of his heart. Miller struggles with his feelings for his best friend. While Church struggles to stay on the straight and narrow.
Both of these men are kind, sweet, and loyal. They each bring a certain strength of character to the other one. It is one of the reasons they are great together. They just have to let the past go so they can find a future worth living.
If you want a gritty, sweet, and intense read I highly suggest this one. I loved watching Church grow into the man he becomes in the end.
