flows easily, yet delves deeply into the emotional side of Beck s state of mind, his suffering, the unanswered questions, and his need to be needed As Beck learns about himself, about his co dependent leanings, he finds solace and a shoulder to cry on in his friend Timothy The author has an uncanny knack for putting meaning between her lines, letting the reader but not the character see what s really going on I knew that Timothy was in love with Beck long before he even said the words.But Beck learns There s much character growth in this short novel, as Beck emerges on the other side of his grief, confronted with his own demons, and finds the strength to ask for what he needs There is one scene that ticked me off, when Timothy makes a stupid assumption, though I can understand how he would have come to that conclusion He s a littleinsecure than he lets on, and it causes both of them pain.But things do get resolved, and the ending gives me much hope for them both.The dialogue is organic and realistic, and the characters growth is meaningful and believable This isn t an easy read, because it s filled with pain and loss, but the ending makes it worth your tears I received a

grab or ignore Beck had been in relationship that tortured That is the only word I could come up with It was basically a one sided love affair where his partner, Brady, sucked Beck s life out and unfortunately, Beck was like a frog sitting in a tub of slowly boiling water Dying in increments and not realizing it When Brady dies, call it accidental, call it fate, call it whatever, it was really Beck s way out Unfortunately, just like the clueless frog, he did not recognize it.Brady s death hit Beck hard and he slowly loses all control It is thanks to his best friend, Timothy, that he finally gets a hold of the lifeline cast his way It is Timothy who takes him to a grief counseling group and stays with him until Beck could go on his own It was Timothy who takes him in when his finances forced him to let go of his home It was Timothy who cared for Beck when he was at his lowest But Beck s grief left him clueless and is lost When the epiphany hits, it hits hard and he is confused What can he do to get back his Timothy His best friend His best love His savior This is a really heavy book in the sense that the Beck s grief rolls off the pages like oil and it sticks in every thought It was hard getting off of this read, it just grabs and takes you in Yes, it is heavy drama but it is also so full of hope and quite the light read, it does not leave any bad taste in the mouth or mind Curiously, it did not even make me cry but it hit me hard With that confusing reaction, it s not just Beck s and Timothy s minds that are tangled up, it s mine as well In the best possible way This is a gem of a story that has many difficult moments It starts with a horrible moment and then deals with the aftermath Beck has lost his partner of a decade after basically sacrificing himself to try to

very descriptive of the steps that a survivor of such a horrific life experience goes through I felt so much for Beck and the awful situation he was trying to get out of His painful steps to healing

heart This book touched on a lot about grief, guilt, and death The beginning of the story was hard to read since it was from Beck s point of view, it was everything he had to endure I couldn t imagine being in love, or dedicating myself for so long to one person who isn t in love with you first I mean it s almost like Beck having to sacrifice himself in order to be in a relationship Throughout all this grief he endured was Timothy standing in the background willing to help, listen or just be a friend to Beck.I would recommend this book to anyone I truly loved it, I found myself crying at some parts but it was elation for Beck mostly He had to learn how to be about Beck He should growth from the beginning towards the end Why 4.5 stars instead of 5 I loved it for sure, but I did feel like I need an epilogue at the ending While I was happy with ending, I just didn t want it to end, but it is classic Posy for her to cut it off Crosses fingers we atleast get a novella about these two hide

this Book, Beck has been taking care of his heroin addicted, clinically depressed boyfriend named Brady For years he has been putting Brady s happiness above his own, loving him, trying to endure his mood swings, and turning an eye when he started to depend on drugs to find his high Unfortunately while coming home one day he didn t make it in time to stop him from overdosing and their relationship is ended in tragedy.Even though Beck s friends jump to his rescue he finds himself living like a zombie One day after he had almost reached a point of no return, his best friend Timothy finds him and urges him to seek care He attends grief counseling meetings and finds himself following the same pattern in his relationship with Brady and as it s brought to his attention he decides it s time to focus on healing himself.Beck begins to see a therapist and moves in with his best friend Timothy, leaving the house that had so many memories of Brady Beck begins to heal and by his side is Timothy They learn to laugh together, make meals and good memories with each other But unknown to Beck, Timothy has loved him for years After a few months, Beck finds himself wanting to love again and Timothy shows him that he is ready for has been in his face the whole time.I truly enjoyed this book It showed the raw side of drug addiction and how it can affect the people you love greatly Beck was a great character He grieved for Brady even though for most of their relationship he imagined walking away He stayed loyal until the very end I could relate to his struggle to find the will to live again He had lost what he assumed would be the last love of his life He felt betrayed, and worthless that he wasn t enough to get his Brady to stay alive Timothy was my favorite though His love for Beck showed throughout the whole story He was there for him at his most vulnerable, and was willing to share his home to help him heal I believe he still would have helped even if Beck turned to another guy It would ve hurt but he was that good of a guy.When they finally slept together for the first time all I could think was finally It wasn t that it was dragged out it was just that you wanted them to be together They were absolutely adorable Beck with his love for long colored socks because he always had cold feet, and Timothy s love for ice cream no matter the time of year was so cute and relatable When they both had doubts about each other, I wanted to slap them because it was so evident that they were meant to be together I definitely recommend you read this tale Even though its beginning is based on something sad, the growth, love, and ending is just so worth it The author did a fantastic job with this book, and I only wish it was just a tad longer because I didn t want to see the two mc s go.A copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review Please visit www.lovebytesreviews.com to see this and manyreviews, author interviews, guestposts and giveaways Note This story

emotions At the same time, it didn t have the feel of trying too hard to get the reader to feel a certain way.The first part of the story was hard to get through not because it was boring or poorly written but because it hit so hard Even for people who have not experienced the exact situation a spouse or partner with an addiction , it is likely to resonate with anyone who has been in the position of emotional caregiver When Beck began to emerge from his situation, I wanted to cheer for him.I loved that Timothy was genuinely bisexual, and Beck had no problem with that at all I had to laugh at Beck s commentary, especially how their other friends just didn t get it and how Timothy was simply his own person, refusing to be put in a box This is the most absolutely true thing about most of the bisexual people I know, and I adored it It was subtle enough that most people probably wouldn t notice or care or get it, actually , but I sure did The relationship between Beck and Timothy unfolded slowly, which made it that muchsatisfying when they finally found their way to each other It was full of hope and promise The sex was hot, yes, but it was also filled with all the things they both brought to the table.This was an incredibly satisfying story, start to finish, and I look forward to readingof Ms Roberts work.5 stars.I was given this in return for an honest review
