Rhys The physical connection with Jevon was “like drops of mystical rain after a lifetime of drought”
The Story – (The cover is…..yes)
Flight paramedic Rhys Foster is hooked on adrenaline. By day it’s blood and guts, by night it’s the thrill of the club. With a different face in his bed most nights, he doesn’t have time to be lonely…right?
Entertainer Jevon Campbell is a play therapist like no other—dancer, magician, acrobat, he brings it all to his global mission to help children in need laugh again. He’s on a rare home visit when he encounters enigmatic Rhys in a London bar.
Their connection is instant, but Rhys fast realizes Jevon’s easy confidence doesn’t stretch as far as the bedroom. He has no idea how mesmerizing he is—how beautiful—and Rhys resolves to show him.
They grow closer, but time isn’t on their side. Rhys seems unable to articulate how he feels, and with Jevon’s imminent departure from the UK hanging over them, their separate commitments could tear them apart forever.
As the days slip by, Rhys must learn to believe he’s worth the happiness Jevon is offering.
My Review –
A stunning story, relevant, timely, and fresh yet emotional and thought-provoking with characters and a storyline made for the big screen. Although this is a series and best read in order, the reader will have absolutely enjoy each story in this series read as a standalone. Set in England, London, Whitechapel, and Cornwell to be more specific as well as refugee camps in Aleppo and Greece, the characters are diverse, with human behaviors and influenced by current events.
Rhys is a flight paramedic, one of the most stressful, adrenalin-filled occupations there is. He is at the top of his game. Socially, not so much. He ‘hides’ his unresolved pain from childhood by distancing himself from everyone, family and friends. Rhys knows that something has to give because he is dissatisfied with his life, especially watching his acquaintances in loving relationships. Hookups are no longer attractive. Jevon, a play therapist with dreads and a head wrap and a ‘Brit-Carribean complexion’ who works in refugee camps with children is just about to go leave the gay pub when Rhys notices him and convinces him to stay for a bit.
You will fall in love with Jevon and Rhys and want to spend more time with them and secondary characters, family, and friends. For me, I think I’ll start in the beginning and revisit old friends from Books 1 & 2,
