Is it easier to fall into the shadows than hold onto the light?

Injured in a horrific car accident by a man who made him feel like nothing, Henry was left with life threatening injuries, crippling self doubt, and his career as a hockey player destroyed. He’s struggling to see, and as much as people tell him to have hope because he’s young and fit, his vision is compromised and he’s spiraling into despair. Estranged from his family, and his money all gone, there seems to be no hope. Hockey gave him freedom, and now it’s all been taken away.

Adler insists on letting Henry stay in a vast Lockhart-owned mansion in Tuscon, but it’s a big and lonely place. When Apollo arrives at the house with his sunny smile and infectious optimism, along with his no-nonsense rules, he slowly becomes an integral part of Henry’s life. But one day, when Henry is better, Apollo will leave, and what happens then? Has Henry really fallen for the dark eyed man, or is it all just smoke and mirrors?

If there is one thing that Apollo Vasquez knows all about it’s helping others and living with quirky athletes. After all, he’s spent most of his adult life tending to one of the richest hockey playing heirs in America. His days have been filled with friendship, laughter, and the knowledge that he’s needed. Or he used to be. Over the past year Apollo’s best friend, Adler Lockhart, has been slipping away, his time spent with his boyfriend, on the ice, or traveling the world with the man he loves. This leaves Apollo feeling like a clunky third wheel or all alone in a luxurious apartment with no one to fuss over.

Knowing that his life is at a crossroads, his loving nature leads him far away from his childhood friend to the dry desert town of Tucson where he signs on to care for Henry Greenaway as the young Raptor recovers both mentally and physically from a near fatal car crash. Henry is also facing a new life, one that might lead him from the sport he has loved for so long.

Cooking, cleaning, and providing moral support is just what the doctor ordered for Apollo, and he soon finds himself not only rediscovering himself and a new life he adores, but falling for the sweet, lost, injured man who’s slowly capturing his heart one timid smile at a time.

I’m glad I stuck with this interracial romance as it turned into a great read

jeremiah coverJeremiah by Jayce Ellis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am so glad I persisted with this book because the first quarter of it was a bit of slog through as nothing much really goes on and there’s a lot of exposition to set the scene.

However, it really is a fabulous book once it kicks in and I absolutely loved all the dynamics at play in the various different relationships and friends’ groups that it explores.

Jeremiah is a complex character and I really felt for him with the weight of his family’s expectations pressing on his decisions. He’s a good guy, and I bristled at how some of his family behaved towards him. He’s not the typical paramedic all action hero type you can get in opposites’ attract type stories.

He had layers that I really enjoyed discovering the more the book went on, his relationship with his best friend Chucky and his girlfriend Ronnie added more dimension to the narrative.

Collin was a sweetie, completely mired in the rut of his life, not knowing what he wants to do and hanging onto his two best friends because they’re safe and familiar.

When he meets Jeremiah there’re sparks and a dancing around which eventually plays off into a very satisfying romance.

I’d certainly read more in this series and it’s great to read more interracial romance with people of colour in focus.

Aaron loves Matty loves Aaron and I love this collection

Better than BeginningsBetter Than Beginnings: A Better Than Good Short Story Collection by Lane Hayes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an absolutely fabulous collection of Aaron and Matty short stories, a few of which I’ve already read in various places as Lane’s released them in her Facebook group or via her newsletter.

Having them all in one easily accessible book is a real joy though, as you get a further sense of the absolute devotion and true love this pair of unlikely partners have for each other.

There’re times you’ll be laughing out loud. There’re times you’ll want to cry, there’re times you’ll be so angry the Kindle’s in danger of getting chucked out the window.

But at all times you will know that Aaron loves Matty and Matty loves Aaron.

Just wonderful. I’d read about these two until the end of time.

One thing though, I’ve never understood how Matty’s family could think that Aaron sounded anything like Erin. It must be a US thing.

Here in the UK Aaron is pronounced Aar-on while Erin is almost like Eh-rin. Just an odd thought I had!
