Review: This is the third and final book of this story. If you haven’t read the first two, I suggest you do. This series does need to be read in order. It could stand alone but you really wouldn’t get the proper feel of the characters.
Having said that, this is the perfect finale. It begins with more angst and emotion of Jack and Andrew. These two men sure went through all kinds of hell to get to where they are.
Jack tries to hunt down Andrew after his past ordeal, but his family moved leaving no trace. Jack is almost ready to believe that Andrew either is dead or doesn’t want anything else to do with Jack after all they have been through.
Andrew had suffered his own ordeal while Jack was away and thought Jack was dead. Since that is what Jack’s dad told him. He took rides form truckers, sometimes having to give blowjobs for food to survive. He finally gives up and decides to go back Sweet and end it all on Jacks grave.
I know sad isn’t it? The things these two guys go through in high school are horrible, but it makes you stop and think. Bullying isn’t always kids and school. Adults can be even worse. Child abuse can happen in even the best of homes. I loved how Sara dealt with the themes and in this book wrapped the story up in a nice neat package intriguing, package. I did cry quite a few times so I would suggest you keep tissues handy. I would love to see young Billy’s story…hint hint…
If you like awesome series, books dealing with difficult topics, such as child abuse, big families, angst, hot yet loving ManSex, interesting characters, and a satisfying conclusion to an intriguing series this are for you.
