A. J. Rose
Every book I have read by A. J. Rose is something different. From hard-boiled murder mysteries, to a light-hearted romance, to this story. Kyle and Jesse love one another and are planning a marriage. Jesse’s family is accepting and supportive, Kyle’s family not so much.
Then when they are waiting for their ride to arrive after a Pride event, their life changes forever. Brutally attacked on the street by bigots, Kyle and Jesse attempt to put their shattered lives back together. Attempting to deal with their physical injuries, anger, depression, and shame, the two struggle to cope with their demons. The whole thing culminates in a courtroom drama, as the perpetrators are brought to justice.
With every book. A. J. Rose gets better and better. I look forward to her next.
