I Female from the United Kingdom,married with two kids and a ton of animals.

 

I'm firmly stuck in the MM romance genre and write reviews on Goodreads,Amazon UK, and do guest reviews on a blog.

 

Looking forward to connecting with other readers who like to read about Boys loving Boys.

This book is special,I mean really special.
I loved everything about it and just didn't want it to end.
This Author's writing is stunning.Her words,her story telling,her characters-to say I was blown away is an understatement.

The story follows the lives of three characters,Alex,Val, and Jav.Introduced when they are young and spanning over three decades it's a truly amazing story of how their lives cross paths.

-it's about family( not always pretty ),

-it's about friendship,

-it's about love,loss,

-such an emotional journey,as they fall,pick themselves up again and make mistakes that have a devastating effect on their lives at times,

-the Historical elements were very well told and the way one particular event is incorporated into the story was beautifully written but so sad that it stole my breath away.

To anyone that reads mainly MM romance I urge you to give this one a chance,you won't be disappointed and there is a MM element that was so powerfully portrayed-the emotions were raw but so real.

As I neared the end I had no idea how things would play out but it turned out to be just right for the story.And it's Jav's story next....that man had me swooning throughout the whole book!

This is,quite simply,a stunning piece of writing that will stay with me for a long time.

Cannot recommended highly enough!!
