 Blurb

 

Recovering addict Jamie Yorke has returned to England from California. With no home or family to speak of, he sticks a pin in a map and finds a small town in the Derbyshire Peak District.

Matlock Bath is a quiet place—he just needs to get there, keep his head down, and stay clean. Simple, right? Until a chance meeting on the flight home alters the course of his so-called life forever.

Ex-Army medic Marc Ramsey is recovering from life-changing combat injuries while pulling nights as a trauma specialist at the local hospital. Keeping busy is a habit he can’t quit, but when Jamie—so wild and beautiful—bursts into his life, working himself into the ground isn’t as compelling as it used to be.

Marc falls hard, but chaos lurks behind Jamie’s fragile facade. He’s winning his battle against addiction, but another old foe is slowly consuming him. Both men have weathered many storms, but the path to the peace they deserve might prove the roughest ride yet.

Warning: Don’t start reading at midnight, this book will keep you up ’til 3am

The Otto Digmore Difference (The Otto Digmore Series, #1)The Otto Digmore Difference by Brent Hartinger

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks Brent for keeping me up until 3am reading this. Okay, so it was my own fault for choosing to start reading this after midnight in the first place but still!

I love the way Brent writes, his work has a visual quality to it which means that I can easily ‘see’ what’s happening on page in cinematic glory in my head. His Geography Club, in which we first meet Russel (with just the one l) is one of my all time favourite MM books.

Here we get the focus on Otto, the beautiful scarred former boyfriend of Russel’s teenage years who is a semi-famous actor who fears his career may be over before it begins when his TV show is cancelled after one season.

With the chance of a feature film leading role on offer, he sets off on a road trip with Russel, who is newly married to his first love Kevin Land, to New Orleans.
On the way they will have encounters with scary rednecks, hitchhikers and have a car crisis before Otto realises a few truths about his feelings for Russel.

This is not a romance, but it is a book about love and friendship and finding yourself through a bit of painful self-discovery. It’s about the freedom of the road, how our lives intersect with people who affect us without conscious thought and how things don’t always follow the script of a movie but can still have a happy ending.
