I liked these boys, I wanted to follow their lives more. I wanted to know what happened in between. We meet them as boys, have a bit of passion, then the epilogue and it's over.
All of that being said, I'm really not complaining, this was a great little story. It's set in a time period that is not really used, it's a brief story of two young men finding themselves and each other. Andrew's writing is great, it's gentle and sweet, not overly dramatic. I enjoyed it, I've been reading some darker books lately, this was a nice light break.
Shared Revelations is a short story by Andrew Grey and as you know, I'm not that big a fan of novella's much less really short stories . . . HOWEVER, Shared Revelations was a wonderfully written story about Eddie, a young man coming to terms with his homosexuality in the 60's and the slightly round-about way he found love.
I have to say that I saw who Eddie was to end up with early on but Eddie would not have been the man he became without his journey. And the end . . . tissues, please The ending was purrr...fect! A wonderfully written story that was both spicy in places and cuddle your hunny sweet in others. Andrew is a romantic at heart and it shows clearly in Shared Revelations! Andrew always manages to pull at my heart and this is no exception.
*I received an eARC from the author in exchange for my honest review.
Feeling hurt and alone, Eddie withdraws from his friends, Donny, Skip and Jack. Donny and Skip are brothers that both work for their father's furniture store in town. His other friend Jack is trying to learn how to deal with his hearing loss and his fathers lack of understanding. Eddie doesn't feel like there is anyone that he can talk to about this until the day that Jack picks him up after work and instead of taking him home, forces him to talk to him about what happened with Johnny.
After finally revealing his secrets and what happened with Johnny, Eddie is sure that he will be losing all three of his friends and is shocked when not only does Jack understand but he has had feelings for Eddie all along. They explore this new relationship and find out the true meaning of love.
Andrew Grey does an amazing job of making these characters seem so true and real. Being born and raised in Wisconsin, it was like reading a story about my past and people that I knew back in that time. The story remains true to its time and place remarkably well and portrays these characters in that setting making it seem as if it was just normal everyday life.
This intriguing book feeds into most peoples fantasies about being with a superstar, whether it is an actor, singer or athlete. You look at them and imagine what it would be like but rarely does that ever become a reality. You can share Eddie's excitement and know it would be great but also realize that it is probably too good to be true and not going to last the test of time.
I would highly recommend this love story to anyone that is a fan of a happy ending. It is just a feel good book and a quick read to perk your day up. I know for sure that while this may be the first book I have read of Andrew Grey's, it will not be the last.
