When Evan's boyfriend dumps him, he doesn't have a contingency plan, but is determined to take the trip they had planned together. There is little wonder that Evan's condition hasn't improved considering the lack of support from his ex; how could he possibly untangle his twisted muscles and gain the strength needed to improve under such negative conditions? On the plane, he meets Bale, who almost immediately shows Evan more consideration about his disability than anyone ever has. Prone to assuming things, Evan decides that Bale is straight, which causes a lot of conflict for him. As Evan learns more about Bale, he endears himself to Evan in so many ways. Evan begins to see how special he is and his affection for the man deepens. After he discovers that Bale is not straight at all, but very available, Evan is able to embrace the sexual feelings he's tried to suppress. Evan knows that he's becoming happier and healthier as the trip goes on; he also acknowledges that Bale is a big part of the reason why. Evan's outlook becomes more positive and, even though he's hesitant, Evan wonders how he will ever get along without him.
Bale is quite a guy. He's charming in a dorky kind of way. He dresses like a preppie in kakis and button-down shirts, but is wonderfully eccentric inside. He is great at the art of distraction, usually using humor to accomplish this. His thought processes are quite odd, but he expresses them in a marvelously outlandish way. He seems to instinctively know when Evan is hurting and finds a way to make things better for him. Bale sees the pain Evan is carrying around and can't help but want to make him smile again. Bale watches out for Evan, assisting him almost before he knows he needs help, therefore avoiding embarrassment for Evan. Even though Bale nurtures Evan, he also finds ways to encourage his mobility; helping him see that he's stronger than he thinks. By the end of their trip, Bale admits how deeply he feels about Evan and how much it will hurt to let him go.
This is a love story about two seemingly different men who both want the same thing—someone who loves and appreciates them. What they find in each other is honesty and sincerity, something previously lacking in their other relationships. Although it may seem like a short time to fall in love, the truth is, in their concentrated stay together, they are required to take a deeper look at themselves than most couples do in years. I recommend this story to those who like quirky, damaged characters with hearts of gold, finding love in a most unlikely place under unique circumstances. Thank you, Ellis, I truly enjoyed this tale.

Total Immersion was one of the most anticipated Mended stories for me and has become a favorite. I just really liked both Evan and Chris. I liked that they weren’t trying to make more out of their situation than was there. I like that they just started off having fun and ended seeing where the fun could go. I have to admit, the visual of Evan in his bad boy guylinered glory wasn’t a bad one ;)
Poor Evan has a dick of an ex, but he doesn’t feel sorry for himself for that. He is in pain, but he pushes through it as much as he can. Chris, however, brings out the best in Evan. Chris, for his part, is a doll from the very beginning. Helping Evan, a virtual stranger, from the minute they meet on the plane to Turkey. I love that he is always there for Evan. I enjoyed watching this couple grow in to… more.
I wouldn’t mind revisiting Chris and Ev in a few months to see if more happened. I will certainly be visiting Ms. Carrington’s words in the future.
I wouldn't have been happier if the author had written one more chapter. They needed to face Josh the "won't support you but won't let you go either" boyfriend at the airport when they returned. It wouldn't have been that hard to write. Oh, well. That's why I gave it four stars.
Even has been in constant pain since an accident and it has taken a toll on him physically and emotionally. He feels hopeless and is completely thrown for a loop when he meets his total opposite Bale. Bale is a nice happy go lucky kind of guy and just a little confused about his sexuality, but it doesn't he can roll with the punches with the best of them.
I loved watching Bale slowly and carefully pull Evan from the dark place he has gone, and Evan's reluctance and fear to hope again. Both guys have a wicked sense of humor so the story doesn't get too heavy.
This was a sweet romance with a HEA. Want a nice summer read by the pool (or if it is winter, by the fireplace) then give this one a go.
