 Tangled Mind

 by

Posy Roberts

For years Beck Lund has taken care of his volatile boyfriend Brady, always putting Brady’s needs above his own and walking on eggshells to keep the peace. After Brady overdoses on heroin, his death devastates Beck. Thankfully his best friend, Timothy Kallis, finds him the help he needs. Beck slowly starts to recover and moves in with Timothy to get back on his feet, but he’s oblivious that Timothy is secretly nursing romantic affection for him.

Beck focuses on his own healing for the first time in his life. After months of challenging his codependent tendencies and learning how to stand up for himself, Beck finally starts to trust his gut and hopes to one day love again. Timothy is patient throughout, taking care of Beck in ways no one ever has. But if Beck can’t recognize Timothy’s affection for him, it might be too late for them to move beyond friendship.

Excerpt

Before I had a chance to shut the front door, the sound of Brady choking on his own vomit pierced my eardrums. I was in our bedroom within seconds to witness him take what ended up being his last breath. Immediately I rolled him to his side to help him clear his airway. He flopped onto his back.

Abdominal thrusts. I slapped his face and shouted his name.

9-1-1.

I followed the directions the dispatcher gave me on speakerphone, putting my effort into every motion as tears ran down my face.

“The paramedics are on their way. Do you hear the sirens yet?”

“Yes,” I said as I used my full weight to come down on Brady’s torso, trying to dislodge whatever particle had stopped all air from moving in and out of his lungs.

Nothing helped. He just stared up at me with glazed-over eyes and refused to breathe.

“Goddammit. Don’t you dare leave me like this!”

I blankly watched as the paramedics swarmed into the bedroom, shooing me away so they could assess Brady’s condition, and I saw the grim looks on their faces when they realized what had really happened. The frenzied activity ceased, and their demeanor changed the second they found the syringe, spoon, and lighter.

Review: I have read many books that have a lot of feeling to them but there is always one that can actually make you stop and think about your life and those around you. This story does that for me. Several years ago my little sister had died from a cocaine and alcohol overdose, so this story made me feel so much more. I can feel what Beck feels when he comes home and finds the man he has loved chocking and dying from an overdose. He is so very lost.

He had been surrounded by many of his friends, but had lost himself. Most of them had told him that it was a good thing but they didn’t take his feelings in. That is until one night he wanted to feel what his lover had felt. Thank goodness for Timothy and his good nature in saving Beck from something deadly. It came to a surprise to Beck to find out that Timothy had a secret. One that might change his world around.

I had a blast reading this but also felt like my heart was breaking. I was so happy at the ending though. Beck deserved someone to love him. I must admit that I had wished that this was a longer book because I think it would have been wonderful. I also think that this book could probably help many who are going through the same situation. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.

I would recommend reading this story. It is a quick read that will have you in tears though. Sexy men are just the topping of this story; it will give you a wonderful feeling in the end.
