The Austin Trilogy: Book Three It’s the summer of 1983, and Trent Days is Major League Baseball’s rookie sensation. Born in Alaska to an Inupiat mother, the press have dubbed him the Eskimo Slugger, but a midseason collision at home plate temporarily halts his meteoric rise to the top. Sent back to Austin to recuperate, Trent visits his favorite record store, Inner Sanctum, where he meets amiable law student Brendan Baxter. A skip in the vinyl of New Order’s “Blue Monday” drives Trent back to Brendan, and their romance takes them into uncharted territory. As Trent’s feelings move from casual to serious, he’s faced with an impossible dilemma. Does he abandon any hope of a future with Brendan and return to the shadows and secrets of professional sports? Or does he embrace the possibility of real love and leave baseball behind him forever? As he struggles with his decision, Trent embarks on a journey of self-discovery—to figure out who he really is and what matters most.

A satisfying conclusion to the Austin trilogy. Brad Boney has created a meaningful addition to gay literary canon. Not only is there appropriate sexuality on display that actually advances the story, but his development of characters throughout the series is revelatory. BRAVO!

bookshelves: grabs-my-heart, favorites, fav-authors, have-not-recovered-yet, m-m, made-me-cry, made-me-smile, made-me-think, mc-to-love, read-previous-ones-in-series-first, series, sweet-not-steamy, want-more, what-the-f, why-did-i-wait-so-long-to-read-this, wow, sports  Read from February 27 to 28, 2015 Trent and Brendan - their story. Everything fit together with the other books in series. Read the books IN ORDER! My old friends from the previous books visited this story.  I have so little to say that has not been said by others. The view of religion/philosophy of life in this and the other books is compelling. The attraction and love shared by Trent and Brendan is complete. Boney writes characters that become a part of the reader. They are complex and complete. I love Brad Boney's writing even with the tears he inadvertently brings to my eyes.  I can only say read this series. I cannot get the men of this series neither out of my mind nor out of my heart. I hope there are more books from Brad Boney.

These books are so freaking AWESOME !!!  Ok OK I liked Ben, looked into what else Brad wrote and found Return.  Nothing even hinted that these were a series but THEY ARE!!  You must read them in order and then go back and reread them (that is my plan)!  I loved The Return.  I hadn’t read anything like it before.  I’ve done the whole time travel thing but never reincarnation…WOW.  I really struggled about reading Slugger, just because I knew how it was going to end, but BOY Boney did NOT disappoint.  I HIGHLY recommend these!

Please, please read The Nothingness Of Ben and then The Return to truly appreciate this book--it will make a lot more sense. All three are stellar Mr. Boney's gift of dialogue and narrative will kepp you coming back for more .

Please read The Nothingness of Ben AND The Return before reading this book.  If you’ve read The Return you go into this book knowing how it ends.  But even so it is well worth the read.  Just knowing the end doesn’t diminish the journey. I don’t know if I would have enjoyed it as much if I hadn’t read the two previous books.  This book left me sad and happy at the same time.  I loved the story and the characters even if they did leave me in the intellectual dust at times.  This story like any great tale left me thinking and that makes it all worthwhile.
