-- MY THOUGHTS >
Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Two men, awkwardly arranged above a lit skyline. Would not pick up based on cover. In this case, it was the summary that caught my attention and begged a closer look.
Written in a first-person POV from Oliver's perspective. Oliver's hurting from the fresh loss of the man who'd taken him in several years ago and became a father to him in all ways but blood. Adam is the new tenant, a former Marine that is suffering hurts of his own since losing a leg and his military career. Oliver's out and proud, Adam is a third-generation Marine who grew up knowing he needed to suppress who and what he is. Now, together in a vulnerable time in their lives, can they depend on one another for strength and comfort... maybe even love?
Both lead characters are filled with such raw emotions, neither are perfect specimens... in fact, they both are admittedly flawed individuals. There's an entire cast of secondary characters, almost too many (sixteen off the top of my head that are mentioned or appear with regularity), but each is unique and helps to create a rich, full story. The chemistry between Oliver and Adam is unique in that it's not an instant thing, nor is it a steady and gradual progression. Dialogue is good, so is the interplay between cast members. There are a handful of conflicts that are sufficiently resolved in a variety of fitting manners. There's almost no predictability and several surprises tucked in here and there, some bigger than others. The conclusion is wrapped up extremely well, leaving no stone unturned.

RECEIVED THIS BOOK AS A GIFT FOR A FAIR/HONEST REVIEW and REVIEWER FOR Bloggin' With M.Brennan.
A tragedy forces them to really look at themselves, and with a little push from Mom's visit...maybe they can find their own happy ever after!
I am looking forward to the next story!
It's usually a wonderful, lively place to live but today is the funeral of his best friend and father figure Malcolm.
Malcolm was also the man that saved him from a life that could have been very different.
Adam Stockton is a Marine.
Today he is moving into Malcolm's old apartment and it couldn't have been a worse time, right in the middle of the funeral.
This is when Oliver and Adam meet.
Oliver is gay and proud of it, he is the president of the local LGBT group, campaigning for better rights.
Although he senses Adam is gay, he is very defensive for some reason, having been cheated on in the past.
The 2 men form a love/hate relationship, Oliver helping him to settle in and sort his apartment, getting him a security job on campus.
When Oliver's best friend Candy is attacked, it's Adam who saves the day.
Finally he admits that he is gay and has feelings for Oliver, their relationship develops and everyone they live with couldn't be happier for them.
Adam's Mum more or less adopts Oliver when she finds out what he has suffered in the past.
Both men have been through too much in their short lives but together they heal and grow.
Oliver has lead a troubled and tortured past and was forced from his home at the tender age of thirteen. By fifteen he was out on the streets trying to survive but that was when Malcolm took him under his wing and brought him to Mockingbird Place. Here Oliver finally found his home where he belonged. The book opens on the day of Malcolm’s funeral and we find out all that he has done in his life to save people such as the residents of the apartment complex he owned. To Oliver he was the father he should have always had.
In contrast and on the same day Adam is moving into empty unit A. He has come from a loving and supportive family, very much steeped in the military but it is through the military that Adam has endured the sense of loss and finality. It is through his friendship with Oliver that he finds that life can and does go on in the most amazing and unexpected way possible.
This was a sweet but angst full journey for Adam and Oliver. At first you feel that Oliver is the one in control and he is the one to support Adam but in turn Adam also helps Oliver by bringing him into his family with the help of his mother.
The secondary characters were also a focused supporting cast and gave the feeling of ‘togetherness’ of the read. I loved that the book had an LGBTQIA friendly vibe and that Oliver was a sounding voice on this at his university.
A good start to a new series, building the world that is Mockingbird Place. I loved the concept and the flow of the storyline. Nice romance with a touch of angst and frustration but a sweet and endearing end.
