The only thing in Colin Mulligan’s life that makes sense is taking cars apart and putting them back together. In the auto shop where he works with his father and brothers, he tries to get through the day without having a panic attack or flying into a rage. Drinking helps. So do running and lifting weights until he can hardly stand. But none of it can change the fact that he’s gay, a secret he has kept from everyone.
Rafael Guerrera has found ways to live with the past he’s ashamed of. He’s dedicated his life to social justice work and to helping youth who, like him, had very little growing up. He has no time for love. Hell, he barely has time for himself. Somehow, everything about miserable, self-destructive Colin cries out to him. But down that path lie the troubles Rafe has worked so hard to leave behind. And as their relationship intensifies, Rafe and Colin are forced to dredge up secrets that both men would prefer stay buried.
My Review: 5 Stars
This book was such a good addition to this series and I really loved it!
Collin Is confused about who is really is.. He has hidden his feelings for so long and who he is really attracted to from his family that now he is afraid to admit it to himself. He ends up in a bad situation one night and in steps Rafe who saves him.
I want to start of this review by saying I thought this author did such a amazing job with these characters! The way you could really feel what Collin was going through.. The way he has hidden himself for so long that he is so afraid to admit it to even himself. Collin is so attracted to Rafe and it really upsets him that he feels that way. Eventually the attraction gets too hard for him to resist anymore and once he lets go, lets just say it was so very hot between these two men!
Rafe was so protective and caring that you really can not help but to love his character. He is there for Collin and his family so much, even when there was no one there for him.
You will get angst with this book along with a lot sweet moments too between these two men. Lets also not forget the steam which was so damn hot between Rafe and Collin! The way Roan Parrish wrote this story was so beautiful and so sweet, you also get painful moments too! When you find out what happened to Collin you can not help but feel so bad for him and what he has been through.
I would recommend this book!
I received a ARC of this book from the publisher for a honest review!
