"Dan is scarred inside and out from an accident that destroyed a promising future. Despite Adrian's loveless lifestyle and Dan's withdrawal and anger, the two men forge a deep--if unnerving--connection. Soon they find themselves questioning the choices they've made and the futures they've mapped out for themselves.
"Yet even bright young men like Adrian and Dan fear the unknown and take comfort in the familiar. Neither may be strong enough to step away from the life they know and toward the one they dare not hope for. But while it's true that love can't heal all wounds, it is the surest balm for where you hurt the most."
Have to admit, I never thought I'd find myself reading m/m romance but Brooke writes so flawlessly that I love everything I've read that she's written. The other thing is that the characters deal with concerns and issues that are universal to all human beings. They are not unique to homosexual men.
A caveat, I would have given this five stars except for two things. In my kindle edition somewhere near the beginning of the book a sentence began with "en" as the first word. I don't know what the correct word was supposed to be.
The other thing was that Brooke wrote "weaved" instead of "wove." Now, of course, she is British and perhaps the British don't teach irregular verbs as we do in the USA. But it is one of my pet peeves that irregular verbs with irregular past tenses are being written as if they are regular verbs with simple past tenses. Harrumph.
While I know nothing of the life of a male escort, Brooke's take on Adrian's approach to his job was appealing. It was a great way to show us what kind of man he is and what his personality is. He is quite a classy guy. He and his pimp, I guess I have to call him, have a close and nurturing relationship. Although the boss isn't above soliciting a blow job and that made me dislike him.
Daniel is sympathetically drawn. Adrian is tender but determined, caring but does not allow Daniel to manipulate him. When they do have sex, while somewhat explicit for my tastes, it is with mutual caring and respect.
One of my beefs with Brooke's work is that the stories I've read all seem too short. In this case, Daniel's issues seem to resolve too quickly. He had experienced a severe trauma with devasting results and I would have thought it would have taken longer for him to trust Adrian, let alone get into bed with him.
One of the things I adore about Brooke's work is that her writing is always superb. I mean the woman can really write. I will read anything with her name on it because it is such a treat to read an excellent writer.
This review is probably not doing the book justice. Let me finish by saying i loved it.
I think I believed that these guys had a future, but I wanted to see them in it, growing together as a couple, not as just a couple of people who'd met because of a need for one that could be fulfilled by the other's 'job'.
Adrian is an escort who hides his scars behind a smile and the right words.
Max, Adrian's boss, hires Adrian to help Dan. Their first meeting is rough but the second one takes them both to a place that they can never come back from, a place of healing.
