Book Summary

29 year old Adrian ran away from an imprisoning and abusive household at the age of 19. For years he ran, living on the streets and in shelters, taking crappy jobs to save a little money. Ten years of struggling and now he is a successful partner of a security company. Under the guise of running the security company, Adrian and his best friend and the people who work for them help others who live unfortunately. Like Adrian, not one of his employees have a nice past. They're all running from something, never letting their guards down and they don't want others to suffer as they have. But Adrian makes the mistake of falling in love with a young man when he's 27. For a while, he gets to experience what it's like to be a normal man. He never thought he could be happy, but Jaxon makes him the happiest man in the world. Only it can't last and Adrian is forced to leave or risk Jaxon's life. But his demons caught up with him long before he realized and now no ones safe. Can Adrian save Jaxon before it's too late? And can Jaxon forgive him for walking away?

My Review {Guest Reviewer ~ Terri @ My Book Boyfriend}

This story has a little of everything from a dark past to a bright future. Told from two points of view, we get our rescuer and our captive. Their lives somehow intertwined together.

It’s a short story, so we don’t get the full impact of all the characters but I thought there was enough to enjoy the story.

Honestly, I wish it had been a bit longer to really understand the torment Adrian experienced.

If you want a quick nibble with a little more than just your average romance, this is the story for you.

  1. Great review. Sounds like a good read.

  2. This is an early post but I just wanted to say “Thank You” for letting me be included in your Hop Against Homophobia. I am afraid I am not a talented m/m fiction writer like yourself but I am an avid reader of it.

    I guess I do not fit into any category really since I write non-fiction for an adult studio.

    But this is a cause I feel strongly about and I wanted to let you know I appreciate the opportunity to be included.
