I really enjoyed their journey together.
But it seriously needed some editing. Normally I do not worry about it, but there were several times that I had to reread sentences to have them make sense. In one case, the author used the word exhumed meaning exuded!
Pierce, what can I say about Pierce? At first, I liked him a lot more than I liked Rafe. He was gruff, rough around the edges but vulnerable. He was always thinking, always trying to get himself out of his situation. And then Rafe, who in the beginning seemed to be too weak, but the funny thing is, my opinion of him changed DRAMATICALLY half way through the book. I love them, together and by themselves. I felt Rafe’s pain over his relationship with his mother, just like I felt the warmth of Pierce’s protection over Rafe. Honestly, this story is so much more than a romance about /involving two men. This story speaks to every “oddball” who chose a path that differed from what their families envisioned, and who suffered the consequences of choosing that path. It speaks of how love can grow and bloom under the most difficult of circumstances; regardless of who you love. I identified with Pierce and his family’s over the top religious zealousness that caused them to lose their child. And it truly warmed my heart that his grandfather understood him and made sure that his future was secure long after he was gone. I am all sorts of in love with this story and it’s message. And I love Rafe, Pierce and their “family” of people in their lives. I will definitely read more from this author!
*I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review*
Pierce was thrown out of his home after he tells his parents he's gay. He is homeless and has been living on the streets of New York. Rafe, also homeless ran away from home. But Rafe is sick. He needs medical help, but you can't get that help when you are homeless. These young men have a run in, and later meet up again. Eventually they decide that maybe two can work better than one at trying to get off the streets.
This wasn't an easy story to read at times. It broke my heart. The author did a good job at pointing out some of the sad truths about homelessness. Not just in the LGBT Community, but homelessness in general. Once you're homeless, it's hard to get off the streets. You can't get a job or any kind of assistance, medical or otherwise if you don't have a permanent address. You're stuck in a catch twenty-two situation. You need the address for the job and assistance, and the job and assistance to get the address. It's a never ending, vicious cycle, that without the help of good and decent people, most probably never overcome. I thought this part of the story was well told and realistic. I loved that the author didn't make things easy for Rafe and Pierce. They had to fight tooth and nail for everything they got.
The author held me captivated and turning the pages. I couldn't put this book down. I really liked Pierce and Rafe as a couple, I just wish there had been more. I felt the ending was a bit rushed, and even though I loved the ending, I was left wanting to see more of them as a couple. I wanted to see more of how the story unfolded between the last chapter and the epilogue. I think another chapter or two would have made the book more satisfying. This book had angst, heartbreak, sweetness, hope, and most of all love.
All in all this was a really enjoyable story. I'm looking forward to seeing what's next in the series. Definitely recommended!
