Emotional, raw, powerful, tragic, realistic, heartbreaking and heartwarming !
A beautifully told tale of newly divorced Rupert, Firefighter, finding his way and sharing custody of his young daughter, Indie. Meanwhile he meets Jodi, a Web Designer, who he's very drawn to, and the men become great friends and then evolve, until Rupert can be comfy with his new found attraction to a man. The story is told in the present; with flashbacks to how they came to be a couple, partners.
It's heartbreaking to see how close they were, and then to be shown how far apart they've become. It's a gentle journey of patience, understanding, unconditional love, and a never-ending hope. These deep characters are amazing; the story immensely interesting, and the sexy times are passionate.
Young Indie, and friend Sophie are important to the story as the glue that weaves these guys back together again.
The reality of brain trauma recovery is a rough road. It affects so many people in their lives. We see and feel, the agony of all concerned. Jodi is re-thinking his own thoughts and reckoning with who he really is. Sweet, patient Rupert struggles, too, with his endless love, devotion and concern. Both are aware that time is what it takes to heal. I thought I'd be crying the whole time, but it wasn't like that at all.
The epilogue is fitting for the amount of tragedy and the work that will be a constant challenge.
Very engaging tale that will wrap around your heart.
Highly recommended ! ENJOY !
Thank you sweet Melissa for the recommendation.
Rupert and Jody had been together for four years when Jodi was hit by a stolen car and ended up in a coma. Part One, the first third of the book, jumps back and forth between the present in which Rupert holds vigil at Jodi’s bedside until he comes out of his coma and the past, which the story of how they became a couple and started living together is told. Part Two, the remainder, details their lives after Jodi is discharged and the struggle of living when nothing makes sense.
Their way back was trying at the best of times. Confidence annihilating and soul destroying at the worst. Though hope slipped through his grasp with each passing day, with each reminder of how much their life had changed, and even with him being resigned to the notion that they’d never be the same, Rupert held on. Even when things looked like they’d gotten better only to get worse, he held on. However, Jodi had no choice; whatever he was, whoever he was and whoever he became was all he had.
But this was a romance, so there was a light at the end of their tunnel and I can’t say I have even one thing to complain about. It was pretty much perfect. And I’m saying this with full consideration of the fact that there was a kid in the story.
This was great. Go read it.
Full review (w/ spoilers) on my site.
The angst was in the storyline which I really did not expect. It was not like a break up or cheating storylines. It felt more like loss, not necessarily death, but close to it.
Our main MC's when they first met was not the most typical scenario, but it lead to them being friends. It progressed to something even more in the end.
I never felt love in my life, but true love must have felt like that. I am glad that I took a chance and read this....
