Blurb: David and Isaac have found happiness in each other’s arms. In faraway San Francisco, Isaac’s brother Aaron helps them explore confusing “English” life and move beyond the looming shadow of their Amish roots. For the first time, David and Isaac can be openly gay, yet they struggle to reconcile their sexuality with their faith. At least they don’t have to hide their relationship, which should make everything easier. Right?

But while Isaac thrives at school and makes new friends, David wrestles to come to terms with the reality of the outside world. Haunted by guilt at leaving his mother and sisters behind in Zebulon, he’s overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the city as he works to get his carpentry business off the ground.

While David and Isaac finally sleep side by side each night, fear and insecurity could drive them miles apart.

This is the second chapter in a trilogy of forbidden Amish love. This book features explicit sex and is not an inspirational/Christian novel.

Review: This is book 2 of the Gay Amish Romance series and if you haven’t read book 1, go back now and you will be greatly rewarded as you the saga so far between David and Isaac. Like my review for the first book, I’m going to keep this review as brief as possible so as not to give too much away. The wonder, explosive and sweet chemistry between David and Isaac is still there as we get a dose of reality for these two guys! If anything, I loved this one more than the first, too!

Like the first book, you may be tricked into thinking it is full of Amish and religious angst – it is far from that! Thankfully, so because I really can only handle a little bit of angst before I lose interest.

Both David and Isaac have left their strict Amish community to live with Isaac’s older brother (who was excommunicated and thoroughly atheist) and his wife in San Francisco. It’s not your typical fish out of water tale, so to speak. Rather we get two very different reactions to what boils down to living in a new world and experiencing an almost constant culture shock. Isaac seems to be thriving, David not so much.

David was very good at hiding his problems. Or perhaps the people around him didn’t take enough notice of him. Or maybe it was David who ignored everyone.

Regardless, the way in which these character’s coping mechanisms were portrayed was fantastic. I felt that this book had a stronger supporting cast of characters than the first book, all of them with their own little interesting point of view on things. The range of emotions in this book is both tiring and intense, which of course makes this an enjoyable read.

Again, compared to the first book, I felt the emotions were much stronger. We get to feel a lot of love with some happiness and hope, then guilt and despair, panic and disorder.

We are left with a cliffhanger (this is a trilogy, so one more book!) and I’m not sure how I feel about that.
