Blurb: A dozen years after discovering his father’s suicide, Cale returns home and finds his older brother Derrick showing the same signs of melancholy. But as much as he wants to help his brother, he fears being sucked back into that world he’d fought so hard to escape. Ultimately, the solution takes the two down a path they never thought they’d tread.

Review: I had a bit of trouble getting into this story. It was well written, but I wished it had added a little bit more to the story line and plot. Fair warning though, this is about two brothers who love each other, but have trouble with their feelings. There is a lot of pain and anguish here but there is love between them. Derrick is sweet and tender-hearted but he is dealing with a pain so deep and depression. Cale is like his brother in many ways even bordering on depression.

The sex between them is tender and sensuous, but a little daring. It is a good book, but I find that it isn’t one that makes me want to read it again. I did love the characters, but I just think it should be more developed.
