Both Jamie and Levi had things in their lives that weren't working and I loved how they brought out the best in each other. It was a slow burn and really had to be given Jamie's past. I loved the gradually opening of Jamie's heart and trust and how he slowly was able to try new things and become less fearful. I also loved the changes that Levi was willing to make to help Jamie. Levi grew and put Jamie first and through that was able to accept himself. Watching Levi learn to accept himself and balance his religious beliefs with his homosexuality was profound and moving.
The secondary characters were well written and I loved that their were no "easy" answers and that it took time and a slow growth for his family. I found it very believable. I loved that Jaime didn't just get past his fears as he fell for Levi and that Levi's family wasn't just suddenly okay with everything. I would have found that unbelievable so the slow evolution was perfect! The scenes between Levi and Jamie were so sweet it made me tear up a time or two. This book really highlights a family forced to face their prejudices and fears and the growth that can happen. I also loved that you never doubted that Levi's family loved him but acknowledged this even though they couldn't seem to accept his homosexuality and even more the lifestyle he was living prior to Jamie. Everyone is this book grew emotionally and it was amazingly well balanced, beautiful and believable. Loved this book and I can definitely see myself re-reading it!
There is no magical cure for any of the struggles the characters face but there is honor here and no one is made into a cartoon.
Jamie and Levi heal themselves through self love and the love of one another. It is a slow burn and given Jamie's past and Levi's re seeing of his sexual behaviors it has to be. The passion in this book is just right.
The debates that are present a many LDS (Mormon) homes around the church's teaching on homosexuality are on full display here in all its contradictions and history of equity arguments in the faith. However, these issues are grounded in the very real life of Levi and his family and so they don't overwhelm the book. They are organic.
As is Jamie's being to work through some of PTSD around his childhood sexual abuse.
I do which Jamie had found a support group or gone to see a therapist again and that Levi and Jamie had found a place to gather around God that would give them succor.
This is a compelling, tender, and moving love story.
With this amazing story and the erotic sex, you will not be disappointed. You'll be enthralled.
I highly recommend this beautiful book. ENJOY !!!
Jaime is a therapist seems like a nice guy. He's pretty easy on the eyes. However, he carries with him a troubled past. When his new client, Levi, decides to make him his latest conquest, things don't go quite as planned. To begin with, Jaime has an aversion to just being touched. And that's just the beginning.
Levi has nearly lost touch with his family because of his orientation, his job, and his promiscuous lifestyle. As he begins to get to know Jamie, he realizes that maybe there is something wrong with his own life.
But before he can help his new friend, he must first learn to see his own mistakes, and part of doing that is to open his eyes to really see others.
There are many things that will block the path he is on, wanting to help his friend and bring his family to accept him. He doesn't know yet just how much he already has learned from his family and faith about helping Jaime face his fears.
Marie Sexton does a truly excellent job in blending conservative Christian family beliefs with teaching how a middle ground can be found between the two. I didn't feel at any time that there was a lot of doctrine being thrown at me. The whole tone of this book is quite acceptable without being offensive to an enlightened reader.
