Jacques(Jake) Moore can't keep his eyes off the man who seems interested in the building across the street. This man awakens deep feelings that Jake knows he shouldn't feel, doesn't deserve to feel.
Dallas is the sun that brings light into the darkness that has always surrounded Jake. This is about love finding away to dispel the shadows that can obliterate the belief that a person deserves to be happy. It's a beautiful story, with hope being the beacon that we all flock to.
This is a bit of a departure for Rhys Ford in story line, but that doesn't make it any less a compelling story. I'd also like to see a story based on Celeste. Another great character in a growing list from Ms. Ford.
Rhys Ford with her words brings you into the dark world of Jake. I could see the rooms, the outside, as if I were there. She has a remarkable way with her story telling and brings Dallas, in his teasing and jokes to life for Jake to find hope. Hope for freedom from pain, physical and the pain of words, hope for safety and love. This was a remarkable book!
Well. She's done it again. A winner. But why am I surprised at all? I recall when I tripped across her Cole McGinnis Asian-American suspense series quite a few years ago. And she was head of the pack, bringing mm romance the diversity that I was not seeing at that time. And I ate it up like, well.. cheesecake.
Rhys is talented. Diverse. Seems a little warped *kidding*. It amazes me how she sees inside the soul of troubled characters SO well! To be honest, she is ALWAYS on my autobuy list. And add to that the fantastic narrators she hand picks? Well, there's never any doubt we'll get a quality story from her.
This author is someone that can change hats so easily. And NEVER disappoints. Honestly, it was a surprise to learn this is her first 'non-mystery-suspense' novel. AND it was a standalone. I'm so used to series from her!! But this one does not disappoint.
My trepidation with the idea of her writing a standalone non-mystery book was unfounded. I mean, I was fearful for a few minutes. Was I going to be able to tell it was a Rhys Ford book without the dead bodies, blood and gore, and sarcastic wit?
Well duh. She still delivered all of the above signature traits, in good ol' Rhys fashion. Lol. What was I thinking? She has her own style. And after reading the shocking first few pages, there was no doubt in my mind that it was gonna be one heck of a ride.
Getting to know Dallas and Jake was very easy. Dallas seemed to have no issues whatsoever with himself and being an out and proud successful gay business man.
Jake was another story, and I was sad for him with the struggle he had with himself. Why do people make promises to their dying family members? And the way he takes care of a bitter, nasty, old man that does the awful things he has done in his past made me think 'wow'. Could I do what Jake did?? I really don't know if I'd have had it in me...No wonder the opening chapter had such an impact.
The metaphors and descriptions of the welding and metal and the honing of something beautiful out of something that is typically discarded as scrap, it made me think of how Jake was unveiling and becoming someone that could appreciate the beauty in himself after so much ugly up to now. Dallas by just being there for him, without trying to 'fix' him was a perfect match to be with Jake.
All in all, this was a beautiful story. Beginning with something so dark and depressing, and ending on a note of such beauty. The cover art was perfect in that it represented a man coming out of the dark into the light, and visualizing life in color after many years of not.
Anyone that is in doubt as to whether Rhys can write a good book that isnt straight up mystery or a series, well, this book was so well contained and compete, that the reader does not miss a single thing. Loved it!
Highly recommended. Do yourself a favor. Purchase this one. It will not disappoint, especially if you are a diehard fan of this author. Now. If it will just be released on audio. *winks*
4.5 of 5 stars
Note: I received and advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, but I enjoyed it so much, I decided to purchase the final copy as well.
Looking forward to more!
