Editorial Reviews


This was the first book I've read by this author Marcus Lopes, but I certainly hope it's not the last. He has a wonderful way of writing atmospheric and life-like, heart-wrenching scenes that make us feel like we are really there inside the story and the characters' heads, as opposed to it all just being "told" to us, as so many authors make the mistake of doing. I like that this book didn't feel stale or derivative, but instead like a new niche of literary LGBT romance/life drama that serves well to help diversify a somewhat cookie-cutter genre (in my opinion). I appreciated the depth of the intricate emotional subplots, but it did take me a little while to acclimate to the storyline and get a feel for the characters and their story (like the dynamic with Mateo/Simon and Liam). It is a love story, yes, but also a life story with issues and complexities that many people can relate to, gay or straight. Terrific supporting cast who were well-developed and added the necessary depth, and the editing was great (I always notice and appreciate that!!) Overall the entire novel was one that I thought was exceptionally beautifully written and delivered an emotional win in the end. Would like to read more from Mr. Lopes. (5 stars)
