For me it was absolutely believable as I have personally seen people react selflessly and compassionately in circumstances where others would not. Not wanting to introduce spoilers I'll simply say that there are people who are capable of great empathy and trust; who go with their instincts and who take a leap of faith were others would run in the other direction.
Gavin and Jared are two men who have been crushed by the worst of circumstances, yet they've somehow managed to hold on to their humanity. They each have trust issues but see something in each other that breaks down their barriers. Forced together by a series of unexpected events, these two men find a connection and solace in the friendship they forge. Out of tragedy and desperation something beautiful unfolds and possibilities arise that neither men could have anticipated.
I absolutely adored both these men and the people they loved. Some of their family members were easy to hate but Susan gave them layers that made them more than simply villains. A difficult task that highlights her outstanding writing skills.
This is not a book for the faint hearted or cynical reader. There are leaps of faith required and some events and situations may be triggers. That said I adored this book.
The HEA left me with a smile on my face and a desire to reread it in future.

Sometimes a second read brings home the fact that what you thought was a good book turned out to be an excellent read after all. When I read this book back in February, I knew it was one that would stay with me and could be a reread on my ever growing list. Thank you Ms. Reeves for putting out a story about finding your way and getting a second chance.
"Just because you've only known one thing your whole life doesn't mean that's all there is." ~Heath, best friend to Gavin
Two men struggling to survive after tragedy find themselves in a fight for change. Losing his wife had been hard for Gavin and now he was raising their tiny daughter alone. He never thought he would find a reason to reenter life until a homeless man named Jared crossed his path and changed his outlook.
Gavin had given me that second chance.
Losing his job meant losing everything, including his son. Jared was determined to do the right thing, until his luck was broken. Now homeless and desolute, he hesitated when a stranger offered him kindness. And when he was at his wit's end, that same stranger brought him home and cared for him.
How could you not cheer for two men like this, their emotional struggles to right the wrong and their ability to fight for justice? This story covered so much, with a taste of GFY, mention of abuse and victory against it. This was a second read and I am sure I will pull this out again. No one deseverved a happily ever after like these men. Good concept, excellent character development and a good execution.
I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this book without bias or persuasion from the author.
As the story begins, Jared is completely dependent upon Gavin, but as time goes by and Jared regains his strength, their relationship shifts naturally into a team of equals, ready to face whatever the world throws at them. I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to conflict, and I was worried about how things would turn out. What I had to remember was these men's words of encouragement for one another. Their mantra was "We've got this." and they did. They got their happily-ever-after, but they had to work damned hard for it!
And a final word, though much of this story was serious, there were also some laugh out loud moments and plenty of sweetness.
The plot is well thought out, Jared and Gavin are so open and honest about their feelings that you can't help but be supportive and fall in love with them, and your heart breaks each time outside forces work to ruin the family they're building.
I especially enjoyed reading a book set in Australia and learning about their social services there.
