Publisher's Summary

Clichés are overrated, and loving the boy next door may not be as genuine as the love Flynn sacrifices along the way.

Knowing he's gay and acting on it were two separate notions to Flynn Brewer until he'd met Keith, his first boyfriend, in high school. Before then, being gay wasn't as real as the pain of living day-to-day. Flynn's fear of coming out to his religious best friend, Zach, in their conservative community destroyed his relationship with Keith, but Flynn rationalized his avoidance and bottled up the truth until it was regrettably too late.

Zachary Mitchell was the perfect son and role model as far as the outside world could tell. Active in his church while attending college, Zach had a personality that could sell anything, do anything, or be anything. Except, he couldn't sell the truth to himself. Just when he was ready to reveal his internal conflict to Flynn and expose the darkness lurking in his heart, and in his "perfect" family, Zach met a girl and got sucked deeper into his chasm of deception.

Caught in a living Newton's cradle of his own design, Flynn must choose between idealistic childhood fantasy and a tempestuous passion that could ignite the very air he breathes.

    "Three stories, three points of view"

    Liked it. Was concerned that it would be the same story from three different points of view, but they run chronologically with very little overlap. Great story.

    Story
    "Utter nonsense"

    I listened to the story to the bitter end. To me is is utter nonsense. In particular the characters of Flynn, Keith and Zac. They were not believable in any way shape or form. Flynn was so wishy washy, and just plain nonsensical. Keith was so over the top jealous and a major control freak. Zac was a shell character to take up space in the story. I can and would never recommend this audio book to anyone who wants a well thought out storyline. Ridiculous plot and shallow characters make this story unreadable. The only really believable part of the book was the overly religious and abusive parents of Zac. I'm sorry but garbage is too good a description for this book. I really wanted to like it but it kept snowballing into a ridiculous plot from the very beginning. It's a difficult listen at best, the main three characters grate on your last nerve very early on in the story and never stop.

    "Excellent Storytelling "

    Good Narration, good performance and overall good book. I was surprised at the simplicity the author incorporated a religious undertow into the story without being pushy in any one particulars beliefs. It was first loves hardships, lifes meaning with its senseless tragedy's and the defining of the unique (and sometimes subtle) definitions of what love, friendship and family can be in different perspectives.
