Review

"What I do want to say is how much I enjoyed reading this story. It was a wonderfully written, well edited, emotional rollercoaster for me and I enjoyed every minute of it." -- Maya, Hearts on Fire Reviews

About the Author

Orphaned at birth, T. Baggins was raised by wolves until age fourteen, when the pack moved on one night without a forwarding address. Returning to human society, Ms. Baggins taught herself to read and write by studying fan fiction. Cutting her teeth on Kirk/Spock (Star Trek: The Original Series, baby!) she soon began slashing rock stars and X-Men. Despite a lifetime spent in the southern U.S., T. Baggins considers herself a citizen of the cosmos and a freethinker, which is good, because no one has offered so much as a penny for her thoughts. Recently, T. Baggins returned to the Stygian darkness which spawned her. But if you feel the need to contact her, try her Facebook page.

REVIEW WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED AT REVIEWS BY JESSEWAVE. I PURCHASED THE COPY OF THE BOOK.

4.5 stars rounded to 5.

I extremely disliked the title of this book. It reflects the story pretty well, but if I had not seen the good reviews on Goodreads, I would have never picked it up, because I thought it was a parody of that book that must not be named. It is just my personal dislike - I do not want any book I like to have any association with that book . As I said, it definitely fits the story, but I thought that the writer who seemed to have such great writing skills (just look at that awesome blurb!) could have found another one which fitted the story too.

Fortunately the title is the only thing I really disliked about this book. The writing is vivid and engaging, both main characters have some pretty serious flaws and still the writer managed to make them likeable for this reader. The relationship between a closeted politician and a prostitute/escort is of course not a new set up in mm romance, but I thought that the book took the old trope and made it its own.

Both Andre and Cormac have flaws. I mean, I certainly never expected to like a closeted republican politician like Cormac - I could never blame any character or person in real life for being in the closet, but I certainly cannot stand hypocrites and boy, did Cormac look like one to me several times in the story. And I still loved him. I believed that he had a good heart, I got the reasons why he was so messed up and I believed that he wanted to do better.

In a sense Andrew was even more interesting to me.

Despite the title, the unrelated bookcover and the number of positive reviews which appear to have been written by friends of the author (some admit it, some do not but most are detectable anyway),
I liked this M/M romance a lot.

Like many others I was initially put off by its title and I only downloaded it because of the reviews stating it had little to do with the notorious serial whose title it copies. The above mentioned notorious serial actually makes a cameo appearance disguised as the one read by the lead's ill sister but that is about all there is to it, luckily for everyone.

First, writing is fairly good. There is the random typo, the clumsy turn of phrase but they are few and do not disrupt the reading experience.
The plot is tight, believable and realistic without being too gritty, especially not in the hospital scenes.
The treatment of Marie's illness manages a correctly sombre tone but it is not depressing and this is no mean feat. I particularly loved the few barbs aimed at the inhuman Usonian healthcare system.
The love story is heart-warming without being sappy.

Characterization is probably the main asset.
Side characters are all good with the possible exception of Andrew's and Marie's father who is sometimes a little too close to the caricature. Cormac's friends could have used more development to better flesh out the story.
Andrew and Cormac are just loveable. They feel real and alive with all their faults and weaknesses. The POV belonging exclusively to Andrew I feel Cormac's personality would have needed more dialogues to be fully developed.

What I feel is the book's main fault lies in some hurried psychological transitions, some of them quite major.

I'm not exactly the target audience for this novel but I loved it.

Andrew stole my heart and Marie is such a spit-fire, I wanted her to pull through (even if I knew that was a one in one thousandth chance). And Cormac? Oh Cormac! A log cabin Republican who doesn't consider himself to be one because he is so hidden in the closet, he doesn't know how to come out!

It is a basic story: Andrew, an aspiring actor, lives in NYC and is taking care of his sick sister who is (unfortunately) dying from breast cancer. He can't get a part to save his life so he decides to work as a male escort and this is how he meets Cormac, a closeted gay Republican politician who resides in the sunny state of California.

There are so many different facets to this book, including Paresh, a character who wins me over in the end and a host of other support characters who make this book worth reading. The great part about this book is none of the characters, no matter how big or small their roles are, seem like cardboard cutouts. Everyone is a real, living breathing entity. I feel like I could know these people and because the author makes the characters so real, no one is all good or all bad. T. Baggins shows humans in all our glory.

All the characters are flawed but so are we, as people. There is an HEA and after everything Andrew and Cormac are put through, I smiled when they were finally able to be together. The moral of this story: to thine own self be true.

P.S. Am I hoping too much for a sequel?

***I received an ARC for an honest review of this novel from the author***
