As a formerly married gay man who lost his wife to cancer, I could relate totally to this book. I also loved my wife dearly and she was my best friend. Her parents and siblings were my family and accepted me as one of their own it was not an ideally situation, but its worked for us. There was never a lack of love.

As I started to read Godsend I found out that this was a different MM book than I was accustom to. The book opens up as Scott and his wife Shelly prepare for her death. They have a last supper then the next morning she ended her life with dignity. I might have cried but I hated this part. I hate it when authors play with the readers emotions like that. Scott and Shelly were in a relationship for 11 year. I almost snorted because he was a straight for you gay man. I think I could have liked the book even after all this if Scott and Chris were believable as a couple or if Scott was likeable. I found that the secondary characters were more likeable than the main ones.

This is a beautiful book ... The story goes beyond death.

Right front the start the narrative is so interesting and emotional ... That the characters and their story is something to want to explore.

Scott and Chris are two men trying to recover from the loss of a love one. They meet at a support group. Scott is intrigued by Chris and his attitude, but he is not ready for what could come between them.

Scott's life and emotional state are still fragile and Chris is afraid to get closer to him because of his profession. But ... life doesn't work that way.

A close encounter changes the dynamic of the relationship and makes them evaluate the possibility of more.

It is really hard sometimes to see Scott suffering but trying , at the same time it is refreshing to see how persistent Chris is when it comes to Scott.

The both of them have to learn how to move forward and have to understand that sometimes you have to accept the help ..

I love the way the families are there accepting the natural progression of the new lives in the middle of the heartbreaking losses.

This is a must read story of death, dreams, acceptance and promises of love.

Godsend is another fantastic m/m romance from Sloan Johnson, and this is my favourite book of hers by far, in any genre she has written.

I gotta tell you, she goes straight for the heart with this one. I was ugly crying and I hadn't even finished reading the prologue! She gets a tight grip around your heart and there is no letting up until you read the final words.

There are some heartbreaking situations in Godsend, and Ms Johnson has handled them sensitively and poignantly. Though situations I hope none of us ever has to go through, the way they are written draw me right into the heart of the story. If you are not reaching for the tissues in the first 5 minutes, you are so much stronger than me!

Scott and Chris's story is more than just a love story. It is a story of loss, grief, sorrow. It is a story about moving forward, rebuilding lives, and finding love again.

The way Scott and Chris interact is beautiful. So touching, but so strong. They are what each other thinks they don't need. I loved that Chris does not give up on Scott, that they both - eventually - fight for each other.

Ms Johnson does not shy away from the hard subjects in her writing. And I love her for it! While the subject matter of Godsend may be a difficult one to read, she does it with sympathy. I adore her writing style, get drawn into each and every story.

I think Ms Johnson has found her niche with m/m romance with an edge.

I can't wait to see what she brings us next.

The opening pages of this story completely knocked me out. I cried so hard that honestly I couldn't breathe. There's a reason the author does this. I get it now. She was trying to make us passionately feel the reality of death and the dignity of dying by your own terms. When loved ones are terminally sick, not only are they dealing with their own emotional and physical pain but also the pain of family and friends who can do nothing but watch helplessly until they've taken their final breath. But in the end, it's the living that are left to grieve and suffer and try to pick up the broken pieces.
Scott is failing miserably at even trying to attempt to have a life after the death of his wife, Shelly. Being forced to attend berievement counseling by his father-in-law, Scott meets Chris, a therapist who has also suffered a huge loss. The attraction is there. I know what you're thinking ~ no, this isn't a gfy situation. It's explained perfectly throughout the story. Scott and Chris wind up in each other's lives due to Chris caring for Scott after an accident. I loved the banter, the caring, the support, the healing, the passion, the uncertainty and the love between them. The supporting characters gave a nice amount of depth to their story as well.
Now, the only thing I didn't like was Scott having these conversations with Shelly and vice-versa. It actually made me feel uncomfortable. I felt like "uh, whoa girl, shouldn't you be in heaven or something?" This was the kind of book that got better the further you read. I loved Sloan Johnson's writing style as her chapters flowed flawlessly from one to the next. I found myself falling so hard for Scott and Chris ~ they were just THAT likable. I can not wait to read more from this truly talented author.
