Blurb: The night before Chris and his best friend Joshua were sent thousands of miles apart on their respective Mormon missions, they finally gave in to their mutual desire. Left trying to make sense of what happened, Chris’s already shaky faith crumbled altogether a year later, when Joshua suddenly died.
Inconsolable, ostracized by his family and the only community he’d ever known, Chris found his way on his own. Now he’s going to school and loves his job as a bartender at Wilde’s. Years after Joshua’s death, he’s finally moving on.
Then a familiar face rocks his world. Joshua isn’t dead. He’s back in Seattle to make peace with his dying father, with a new name, a new accent…and old feelings for Chris that are alive and well.
Forgiveness doesn’t come easy for anyone, but just as Chris is accepting that the man he loves isn’t going to run away this time, their families threaten to pull them apart all over again…

Review: I was quite surprise by this story. It was not what I had expected and to my surprise, I actually liked it a lot. It brings things home to you. It makes your heart sing to see to men get what they want in the end. It will also make you cry to know the pain that they went through to get to where they are in the end. I have never really understood why people have so much hate in their souls and hearts. Nor do I understand why people can’t understand that you should be allowed to love whom you want. This story gives you two wonderful men who have the desires to be with each other and the way the church tries to put an end to it. So much so, that it drives one man to pretend he is dead and start a new life somewhere else. He left so much behind.
Chris had fallen in love with Joshua and when he learned he had been killed it nearly drove him insane. Now many years later he finds out Joshua is alive and is going by the name of Julien. He doesn’t know whether to be extremely pissed off or to actually forgive him. He hasn’t seen him in so long but when Julien comes back to try to make amends, he has to see where it will go.
Julien is very much in love with Chris and it has left him with a lot of fears and pain. He knows that he has caused not only pain to his family but to the man he loves also. He wants to fix things with his family but he is not going to give up a life with Chris. You can feel the love that they have for each other.You can also feel the pain when everyone seems to want to fix them, to keep them apart.
I can’t believe what these two men most have felt and gone through to get them to this point in time. To have the strength to go against everything they had been taught is an amazing lesson some should learn. I can say that these two authors have put together a story that everyone should read at least once in their lives. To see what some people do go through when they are dealing with families. I wished that everyone would feel the way these two men love one another. It would be a gift to be able to love so deeply and to be love back in the same strength.
I would recommend this story to everyone who wants to feel such strength, such love, and such loyalties. It also doesn’t hurt that these two men are hot and they are showing signs of being kinky. It will be an amazing read.
