I wasn’t aware when I agreed to read the ARC that the characters and this storyline are mentioned in another of the authors books – Coming Out – but that didn’t matter at all when I read the book – I was just pleasantly surprised to find out at the end that I could read about some of the secondary characters I enjoyed in this book in their own book. It certainly didn’t leave me feeling like I’d missed anything and actually having now read Coming Out I think the books work well this way round.
As mentioned, this isn’t an easy read – there’s a lot of homophobia, homelessness and a life changing accident. It deals with themes that I think every LGBTQ+ person worries about to some extent in their lives at some point, but despite all of this the one feeling I found I was actually left with the most after reading was hope.
I’d highly recommend adding this book to your TBR list, even if you yourself aren’t LGBTQ+ as this is a book about humanity and relationships that anyone can relate to.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
