Would you live a lie to hold onto the one you love?
Dean and Jason are best friends, like brothers since boyhood, now architecture students and college roommates. They’ve always had each other’s back, but when one walks in on the other with another man, everything changes. How do you explain to your best friend that he’s the one you’ve always wanted, that until now your life has been a lie?
Desperation and shame are two dirty words that run through Jason’s veins. He carries the scars from a wayward priest who stole his innocence and left him shattered. Meanwhile for years he’s watched Dean pursuing woman after woman, as his own heart slowly breaks.
When their world blows apart, they learn the powerful bond between them has more fire than either understood. Can two broken souls find the light in their darkness and come together to make a whole, or will sins of the past be forever unforgiven?
***This standalone is a M/M love story with graphic sex. Trigger warning.
Emotional Hot Hot Hot read.
OMG still coming down from reading this book,this is my first M/M book read and from this Author also,its not my genre i normally read,but reading the blurb it was hot so i thought i would give this a go and WOW so glad i did,what a raw emotional hot hot hot book this was,it was a rollocoaster of a journey for Dean and Jason (JJ).
Dean and Jason are best friends from a very young age,they are at college together and share a flat together,they play hard and party harder so when Dean catches Jason with a guy it rocks his world and he can’t come to terms with his bestie being gay.This book had me hooked from the begining with the amazing story about two friends and how they coped with one being guy.
Jason had a abusive past from a priest that had me reeling with what happened to him at a young age,but Dean’s compassion for his friend helped Jason through his problems.This is a strong story about who you fall in love with,which is not always who you think that is going to be.
This story was Intense,emotional and one of the most passionate books i have read in along time,there was alot of nail biting hot sex between Dean and JJ that had me hooked all the way through till the end.I was fasinated with these two characters and Ruth puts you through the wringer with this story,and dosen’t let you go until the very end.
I loved Ruth’s writting and how she got me hooked into Dean and JJ’s world, i am a emotional reck after finishing this book in one go as couldn’t put this down until i had devoured it whole,i am simply blown away.
