I have tried to write a review several times for this story and each time I have erased it. I still don't know what to say. This was unexpected, intense, emotional, heartbreaking and heartwarming. The cover is incredible. This is how I saw Liam. I really loved how the relationship between Jason and Liam evolved. It was built on horror, and tested by the aftermath of ptsd and past family trauma. I have to say that Jason turning away from Liam was heartbreaking and I struggled to understand why he was doing it, because it was clear that they both needed each other. Risking your heart is painful. Jason says to Liam 'I broke up with you because loving you hurts'. Liam says to Jason, 'I promise I'll never foolishly risk my safety again, Jase. My life with you means way too much to me.' The ending, well I got a bit teary eyed. Who wouldn't when they love with their eyes. It really comes down to being the hero that each other needed, promises learned, made and kept. Another well done story by Mia Kerick.

Damn. Just...just damn. I mean that in a good way. I literally just finished this book. I set the Kindle down and came straight here. I'm not going to say much because I'm overwhelmed. I only wanted to say that I was completely bowled over by "The Art of Hero Worship", and it took my breath away. Thank you, Mia Kerick, for giving me this gift.

This story started with "pop pop pop" the sound of gunshots in a theater. Jason is scared and is panicking that he is about to die - - out of nowhere a body is pushing him down on the floor and telling him to keep still and quiet. Liam saves Jason that night and couple nights later. A friendship resulted from their experience. They both lost people they knew that night and the trauma of the experience manifest in various ways for each of them. Jason struggles to function as he once did and only feels like himself when he is with Liam. Liam for all intent and purposes tends to be the hero and this need to save people stems from an extremely traumatic incident in his past as a child. As he and Jason gets closer, Jason will try to save him from his demons. One thing that seem to be missing from the story was the reason for the shooter's behavior and why it appeared he was going directly after Liam. Overall this was a good story.

This is most certainly not your normal m/m romance. Liam and Jase are both attending an event on campus when a deranged shooter starts to spread carnage. Bullets are flying, people are falling, bleeding, dying. It's a shocking start to the story. Jase is petrified, nearly literally. Liam protects him as best he can until they can make a run for an escape. This is an extremely intense event to experience together, and these two are bonded in a unique way.

Liam and Jase are not gay. They both had prior relationships with women. There is something that has them connected, though. Jase asks himself, " Can two men experience emotional and sexual satisfaction with each other when they aren't gay?" This is an extremely emotional journey for Jase and Liam, and very effectively written. After you get to know these two MCs, you will be rooting for them to have the HEA that they very much deserve.

Wow, where do I begin? First, trigger warning! If you’re unable to deal with a book that covers the subject of a mass shooting in detail, this isn’t for you. I think the synopsis is pretty clear but if you can’t handle that component you won’t be able to get through the first chapter.

I was immediately pulled into the story.

“Pop-pop-pop…” The sound of gunshots.

“Always in sets of three, letting me know where he is.”

Chilling. I felt like I was crouching down beside Jason. You wonder if he’s going to survive, how he’s going to survive.

Others around him are picked off one by one by the lone gunman. He rapidly approaches the area where Jason is hiding, mere steps away and of course, Jason thinks he’s going to die. Not a moment too soon, Liam comes to his rescue.

“I’m gonna push on your back really hard and I want you to squeeze as much of your body underneath the chairs as you can, got it?”

They manage to escape the gunman but it’s not over, it’s far from over.

What can I say about this book? It was fantastic. This was my first Mia Kerick read, and it certainly won’t be my last. We meet two boys who were thrust together due to a tragic event and to cope; they hold on to each other. An odd bond has formed, and they find that even though they can’t explain it, they crave the company of the other man. Strange considering they both identify as straight, but no one understands what they endured. Liam is the strong one, the hero, the one who is able to segue into a sense of regularity after the shooting. Jason is struggling and only when he’s with Liam is he able to forge ahead.

Pros:

Mia’s writing style. I adored it!
The character development. It was awesome!

I cannot say enough about this book. I was literally hooked from the very beginning. The story of Liam and Jason was just lovely and heartbreaking. It makes me hope that something so beautiful (even with a few bumps in between) can come out of something so horrible. I wish there was more to the end, but I am still satisfied by the outcome and in my mind they truly have their HEA :).

This is my second book by this author and she does bit disappoint! I actually have listed and read Random Acts over and over. She truly has an art in storytelling.
