More About This Book

Overview

Artist James Bryant has forearm crutches in every color from rainbow for fun to sleek black for business. He even has a pair with more paint splatters than metal. After his family's rejection and abuse from a man he thought loved him, James only just gets through the day by painting. He lives in constant fear that he's not worthy of anything, let alone love.

As CEO of his company, Carrington Enterprises, Seth Burns is a take-charge kind of guy, and he is instantly smitten by the artist helping with his newest project. When he witnesses James suffer a panic attack, a protective instinct he never knew he had kicks in. He truly believes nothing is unobtainable-including James-if he's willing to put in the time and effort.

James is shy and confused by Seth's interest in him as a person. With Seth's support, can he work through his fears to finally find the true love he deserves, or will someone finally land the crushing blow he won't survive?

    I really loved this story between artist James Bryant and CEO Seth Burns. The emotions that run through this book will make you laugh as well as cry. There are a myriad of interesting characters throughout the book that help keep the story believable and in real life terms.

    James Bryant has such a troubling past you see why he is the way he is and scared to take a chance on love.

    Seth Burns is someone who didn't come from a background such as James'. There is so much depth within this story that all you can do is peel back the layers and enjoy.

    This is a great m/m story that doesn't just have hot sex in it (and it's hot) but it has realism. I will be looking for more from this author.

    Could not put this book down!

    This book was so easy to read and become immersed in. Really like the way this author writes and it was the most intensely beautiful proposal one could ever ask for in the real world. One for my favorites list and will re-read again.

    Good book.

    The book is well written and has a goood storyline, but I had a hard time with the way Seth treated James as a submissive. In terms of BDSM it was very mild, but James was immediately one of Seth's "pets". James had previously been in an exceedingly abusive relationship, and the way Seth immediately took control bothered me and I never really got past that. James wasn't all that comfortable in how Seth treated him, as he wasn't 'into' D/s, and was scared of Seth's attitude. The partnership does become more equal later in the book, though, and the author does explain Seth's reasoning/actions. For readers who don't like the submissive/dominant relationships, this might not be the book for them. The D/s doesn't really extend to the bedroom -it's more in how Seth treats James, especially in the first half of the book.

    I was really touched by this story. James's is a man with a gene

    I was really touched by this story. James's is a man with a genetic disability that was made worse through terrible abuse by an ex-lover. He is just trying to live day to day and survive, having given up on love when he meets Seth. Seth is immediately taken by James. He realizes he will have to work hard to win his love. The embark on a journey that deals with tragedy, the past and the present and will need each other to get through it all. They have love and support of many friends along the way to enhance the story. Definitely 5 stars and you might want some tissues on hand.
