"An Emotional Story of Moving Past Loss"
Filled with the angst of overcoming loss and moving on through life, this love story clutched at my heart. Quinn struggled after the loss of his longtime partner but when he meets Brady, he's finally tempted to find happiness. The author smoothly juggled both love stories so that readers felt the connection between Quinn and Aaron as well as his new love for Brady. There was the perfect blend of reflection back on Aaron and Quinn's hopefulness for a bright future with Brady. The secondary characters, friends and family, added dimension to the men and rounded out the story.
I enjoyed this story as an audiobook. The narrator used his voice to express the emotions behind the words. At one point, it was almost as if he was sighing and crying along with me as I listened. This highly emotional, angst-filled story is a great listen.
"Aaron ~💙~ (Quinn💖Brady)"
A beautiful compelling tale of a true love that was lost yet given a second chance to find it again.
I fell so head-over-heels in love with Aaron because of how much Quinn was in love with him. The author did such a fabulous job of including Aaron in this love story for Brady and Quinn. And I just adored Brady!
The scene where Quinn walks in on Brady in this kitchen of chaos yet to Quinn, Brady is this King orchestrating everything with this beauty of calmness. I was just so overwhelmed with emotions because the entire scene was described so beautifully. -tender sigh-
I appreciate so much that this was truly a Love story not a lust story. When Quinn and Brady make love, it's a part of the story but doesn't take over the story. And for me, I consider that a magnificent skill of writing. Beautiful story, just beautiful!
