This book is about 34yo former but now infamous drummer, Jessie Thunder who spends his days popping pills and drinking way too much. He has lots of people around him: bodyguards, his brother and others but he always feels alone. He is self-absorbed until his bodyguard asks him about the houseguest in his pool house. Jesse hasn’t invited anybody to his pool house. Enter Theo Harlow, 18yo and homeless. Theo has aged-out of the State system of abandoned children. He found the pool house door unlocked and started squatting there until he was caught. Rather than send this poor bedraggled young boy to jail, Jessie invites him to stay along with his family of “misfits” for whom he cares. Will Theo stay? Will this work? Can this make Jessie happy?
In this first book we are introduced to several other characters whose stories will be told in future books. They are already put on my wish list! BEAUTIFULLY TOXIC is a slow-burn M/M romance between two hurting people. Neither Theo nor Jessie have ever known passionate true love or compassion. This is their story. Beautifully written, every chapter an adventure, great romance. Chapter 7 broke my heart until it was put back together. I would give this book more than 5 stars if I could. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book through Gay Romance Reviews and it comes highly recommended.
This is a sweet very emotional, slightly angsty short read. I definitely recommend this book!
Theo is homeless and knows what it's like being unwanted. Having aged out of the group home, he is on his own. Theo just needed a warm place to sleep. He has no idea whos place he's in. Theo is surprised when he is given a room and clothes instead of being arrested. Jessie saves him. Theo also finds himself with a crush on Jessie. Growing close to Jessie and his family, he finds out that unhappy comes in all walks of life. Theo's crush grows the more they hang out. He craves Jessie's touch, to have him love him when he sober and not just high and convenient. Theo has always felt unwanted, like no one can love him or would ever want him. After a being turned away, Theo has to leave or he will completely break. Can't help that he lost his heart to Jessie.
I really enjoyed this book. I fell in love with all the characters. If you like age gap reads or books with characters so good together but very bad for each other, or even a good self made family (my personal favorite) you may just like this read. Just be prepared for heart rending moments, with sweet and hot moments mixed in. This book is not for the faint of heart. With possible triggers, so be warned.
Would I recommend this book? Yes. Can't wait for the next book in series.
