Overview

The winter of 1987 AIDS was epidemic. Bryan Tyler had lost so many close friends, he was falling apart at the seams. Handsome, rich, intelligent, Bryan had accomplished more in his twenty-four years than he had ever dreamed. But he had no one to share his life with.
Having remained celibate since he was sixteen, Bryan's fear had created a vacuum of loneliness in him he found draining to live with day in and day out.
Until one afternoon while reading the Seattle Times weekend paper, Bryan noticed an ad for a youth in need of a foster home.
Julian O'Connor had lived his entire life in an overcrowded state run facility in Everett, Washington. Nearly sixteen, Julian never imagined having a host family, let alone someone to love him. When he was emancipated, he assumed he'd live on the streets. Unloved, and feeling helpless, Julian had lost hope for any type of successful future. He lived one day at a time, and it was all he could do.
Then two lost souls met.
Bryan imagined raising Julian, giving Julian a strong home life and an education. In return, Bryan hoped Julian would fill his empty life with devotion.
What they didn't expect was a love that grew to obsession and the forces that were trying to tear them apart.
During a time in US history when the AIDS quilt continued to add names at a terrifying rate, life bloomed from the nightmare. And for Bryan, it was all about one person. Julian.

In honor of writing my 50th book this year, each new novel of 2010 will feature an unpublished author's short story. Introducing Edward Kendrick's erotic tale;
BETWEEN A STONE AND A HARD PLACE
I hope you enjoy it.

I actually found this story a bit disturbing, and I felt dirty afterwards. Rather than being a sweet story about two people who need someone to love, it felt psychotic, obsessive, unrealistic, and just plain wrong. The characters were twisted and pretty messed up-- each in their own ways, and the sexual situations... well, it was gross. Like I was reading someone's pedo/child-porn/exibitionist fantasy. I had to skip a lot, and couldn't even shake the sick feeling afterwards. I only read the end because I was hoping for a moral, or a point of some sort. But no... unless the point is that it is okay to be a pedophile and an exibitionist, when you're supposed to be caring for your underaged adoptee in a non-sexual way. Seriously, I felt like I needed a few gallons of bleach afterward. Maybe if he was 17 it wouldn't have been *as* bad, but I'm pretty sure he's 15 the whole way through. It was just a little too far past my moral boundaries.

I love GA Houser's books, but in this one Bryan's foster son is only 15 yrs. old, and problems arise due to his age and other circumstances.
