Growing up, Jason Stern led a charmed life complete with devoted sisters, a father who was one of Brooklyn’s most respected rabbis, and a mother who made the world’s best babka. He headed to NYU ready for anything—except falling for the wrong guy, coming out, and getting disowned by his once-loving family. In spite of that, Jason managed to graduate with honors. He’s got friends who treat him like family, and he’s proudly running the largest LGBTQ teen shelter in Manhattan. Life is good, but he’s still falling for the wrong men.
When charming, sexy Quinn Fitzpatrick begins work at the shelter, Jason falls hard and fast. Quinn is tall, blond, funny—damn near perfect. Only if Quinn’s gay, even he doesn’t seem to know it. If he does, he’s not telling anyone. And he’s about one ceremony away from becoming a Catholic priest.
Long hours of work turn to long nights of talking and laughter, and Jason dares to hope this time he’s falling for the right guy. But Quinn’s got a past to deal with and major decisions to make about his future. When Quinn leaves for a silent retreat, Jason knows the silence may change everything.
What happens when you fall for someone who you think is wrong for you.
When his loving family turns him away, he goes on to make something of himself. He fills that empty space with a family of his choosing.
This books have a lot religious trappings, yet never gets preachy. The honesty that these two have between them is amazing. A slowly kindling into a flame. Yet the relationship grows fast yet intense. With two different religions and two males, one is gay the other thinks he is straight.
A sexy story with hot young men. I absolutely loved the narrator, his voice eased you into an almost lethargic state that you never want to stop listening to him.
