Love knows no limits…but fear could keep them from seeing it.
Gabe lives a double life. As Gabriel Henson, he works multiple jobs to support his remorseless, alcoholic mother. As Tony Ryder, he does internet porn for extra cash and regular safe sex without complications.
Yet when he encounters a scared young man freaking out in a night club, he’s compelled to reach out. Ever since then, the memory of that young man has haunted him.
Tristan Lavelle lives his life thirty minutes at a time. After a traumatic brain injury three years ago, he gets through his day recording his life in spiral notebooks and sticky note reminders.
A month after Tristan’s embarrassingly public meltdown, another chance meeting with Gabe sparks a warm, emotionally fulfilling email relationship. Both men crave more, but fear of the next step stands between them.
Until Tristan gets the opportunity to take part in a clinical trial that could improve his memory—if the side effects don’t kill him. But for Tristan, the possibility of a real life with Gabe is worth any risk…
So I read the first book, but it was so long ago it took me several chapters and lots of the reminders through out the story to jog my memory into who the players are. This could be a good thing if you’ve not read the first. Means you can read as stand alone and not be confused.
We’ve got Tristan, who is still dealing with the effects of the bashing he and Noel went through while in college together. Living in the home, having to write everything down. You can tell, he’s starting to get more and more frustrated with the whole situation.
In book one Tristan meets Gabe, but re -meets him and they find an insta attraction even though Gabe Dad’s warn him. And he’s nervous about his part time job.
I really like G and T together. I like this new side of T, this fun flirty side that G brings out. I enjoyed watching him slowly remember stuff and the excitement that brings, not just him but all four of them.
The second plot, of the G family, the dynamic the hopeless situation with his mother. All great story lines and kept me reading.
Great second book in the series, had me weeping, laughing, cheering and left me with a feel good HFN.
