When Susan told me she was doing another book I was excited. I had reviewed her book Stripped Bare and loved it and loved the characters. So I knew I would be in for a real treat.......... I was NOT prepared for how much I was going to get sucked into this story! O.....M.....G..... I had a few people warn me because was mention of rape and some other not so nice things.....I prepared myself. I didn't watch or read any reviews, I wanted an open mind. I went in with an open mind and I am so glad that I did. I immediately loved Alex, and I knew that he had a lot of secrets and "something" must have made him be so withdrawn from society and for feeling. And SAGE..... how can anyone resist the hot actor who is openly gay!?! I was loving it and then I got to a certain part (I won't spoil it by telling you which chapter..) but I was in the car traveling with my hubby. First there were tears...I dabbed them with my shirt sleeve...then I found a tissue in my purse.... then I needed another.... THEN the sobbing started. Hubby asks if I was OK and if he should pull over. I was sobbing and could not speak...I pointed to my kindle....and then he once again, shook his head. My daughter (7 yrs old) says, Mommy are you OK? Are you hurt? I could only shake my head and continue to read and cry to myself......I felt like I needed a hug at that point!! I wanted to jump in the book and just hug him! JUST....HUG....HIM..... oh my!!!!
There were twists and turns to this story that I was not expecting. I was trying, all along, to guess "whodunit"! I kept changing my mind, but eventually I was right. But it still took me for a loop!!
So if you love M/M books with a great story and romance...this is your book! keep an open mind and you will love this book as much as I did!!! I was definitely having a book hangover. It took me a couple of days to prepare myself to write this review. Every time I started, I would start crying again. I better quit now, or I'll be crying again... GREAT READ -- GO ONE-CLICK!!
