Carrick Francis has spent most of his life jumping into trouble with both feet. The only thing saving him from prison or worse is his absolute devotion to Deacon Winters. Deacon was Crick's sanity and salvation during a miserable, abusive childhood, and Crick would do anything to stay with him forever. So when Deacon's father dies, Crick puts his college plans on hold to help Deacon as Deacon has helped him.Deacon's greatest wish is to see Crick escape his memories and the town they grew up in so Crick can enjoy a shining future. But after two years of growing feelings and temptation, the painfully shy Deacon finally succumbs to Crick's determined advances and admits he sees himself as part of Crick's life.
It nearly destroys Deacon when he discovers Crick has been waiting for him to push him away, just like Crick's family did in the past. When Crick's knack for volatile decisions lands him far away from home, Deacon is left, shell-shocked and alone, struggling to reforge his heart in a world where love with Crick is a promise, but by no means a certainty.

The book was good, A bit long. A bit emotionall may want listen in a private place.
I enjoyed the ride along with their emotional and relational growth. The story arch is perfect, I felt like a part of their family by the end looking toward the future with Crick and Deacon. Oh, yes, sexual encounters were hot and realistic at the same time. Love it, highly recommend it.
Good story, but a little too much background, it could have been a shorter listen with the same impact. The characters were good and the storyline very believable.
Amy Lane has out done herself with this dramatic romance. I loved the development of the characters, the storyline and the vivid descriptions throughout. I found myself crying so many times that I had to confine listening to the evenings. I never give five stars but I think this story deserves it. Bravo Amy. And of course, I love Sean Crisden's narration. Beautiful love story that should be captured on film...
