    Two guys who are physically damaged in different ways and therefore fighting the prejudices society hands them This book gave me a different view on many things, for me it wasn t about the romance so much asabout dealing with everyday life when you have disabilities.Tom is a war veteran from Afghanistan and loses both his legs during action and Jamie is HIV positive after one silly night we re he didn t take the necessary precautions and will now pay the price for the rest of his life Bo Two guys who are physically damaged in different ways and therefore fighting the prejudices society hands them This book gave me a different view on many things, for me it wasn t about the romance so much asabout dealing with everyday life when you have disabilities.Tom is a war veteran from Afghanistan and loses both his legs during action and Jamie is HIV positive after one silly night we re he didn t take the necessary precautions and will now pay the price for the rest of his life Both very different things, but also very similar in the way these guys have to cope with people s reactions This was the part that made me feel so sorry for both of them which is exactly not what they wanted in probability, even if well meant Therefore they have both given up on ever finding someone to love or having a relationship I really liked the political views brought into the story along with the harsh reality of life The military patching Tom up, discharging him and then on your own buddy the support network for such veterans needs a lot of attention Jamie s situation is oneof if you can afford the health insurance then everything is OK, if not tough Obamacare was mentioned several times and after reading this realised evenas a Brit European guy, how desperately needed these reforms are I felt my blood curdling with the anger, the hopelessness of the situation these guys are fighting But they don t give up and keep the good work going Very admirable.They take comfort in their pets and Jamie is at a local animal rescue home looking for a suitable partner for his cat Jackson and literally bumps into Tom who is visiting with his dog Harry Love at first sight Is there such a thing well I like to think so, happened to me You look at someone, there s a reaction you can t explain, but you know it s good but the problem is where do you take things from here This is where the author very nicely lets you read the MCs thoughts Another interesting aspect to this book You get to really know and understand where these guys are coming from and why Makes things a lotrealistic and understandable For Tom the effects of PTSD is far worse than the physical disability You are not aware of this until a certain part in the book, then the severe reality of this comes crashing home.They are totally unsure of themselves their disabilities taking all their confidence away This is totally normal but is exacerbated with Jamie and Tom constantly second guessing themselves and not believing that someone could be interested in them Always used to people s reactions when they find out Tom always wears long trousers to cover up his mechanical legs and obviously with HIV you don t know until someone is honest enough to tell you They are so used to people turning away and making a run for it once they found out So keep themselves very guarded as a means of emotional protection However, the chemistry is a stringer pull Here the author paces this out nicely and Tom asks Jamie to help out at then animal rescue home to do the accounts on a volunteer basis and first they find a friendship, mutual understanding and a common ground due to their afflictions It is a long way until they finally admit to themselves what is in front of their eyes and what their hormones are telling them But it still takes a little intervention from to good friends, Ava whose Jamie s friend and Ed Toms s friend I liked this aspect of good friends Everyone needs someone to talk to but also give them a push when needed and this is exactly what these friends did With a little advice and friendly cajoling make them both realise and wake up to the truth.After they finally get their act together the last big obstacle is Tom having to tell his parents the revelation He comes from a loving and close family and decides to keep his gayness a secret as not to upset themThinking that they re conservative values would never let them except him being gay, as this was enough, but his boyfriend also being HIV positive Well, the time comes where there s no way out if they wish to be happy together as a normal couple One thanksgiving Tom takes Jamie with him and is determined to break the news to his parents and sister Well, this part of the book was lovely and almost had me in tears What happens Well, Tom didn t need to say anything and the whole family turns the tables on him and Jamie Really lovely You ll have to read the book to find out what happens, but it was dealt with superbly and had me oohing and aahing for the rest of the evening lol The interaction between these guys are good, although the plot in my opinion was a little thin, the main focus here really is about Tom and Jamie overcoming their obstacles and finding a love that they never believed they would ever be able to find again The story took me a few chapter to get into, but there were some very nice moments in the story that made the wait worth it.An enjoyable read which for me gets a solid 3.5 stars

    Another different and enjoyable romance from Brad Vance A slow burn friends to lovers romance with two amazingly strong MC s that each believe they are too broken to be anything but on their own Jamie s now living with HIV because of some bad judgment and poor decisions in the past Tom is living with PTSD and the loss of his legs after a tour in Afghanistan and on top of that he is trying to deal with his realization that he is gay and attracted to Jamie The main focus of the story is the tw Another different and enjoyable romance from Brad Vance A slow burn friends to lovers romance with two amazingly strong MC s that each believe they are too broken to be anything but on their own Jamie s now living with HIV because of some bad judgment and poor decisions in the past Tom is living with PTSD and the loss of his legs after a tour in Afghanistan and on top of that he is trying to deal with his realization that he is gay and attracted to Jamie The main focus of the story is the two men dealing with their own insecurities and fighting their attraction while trying desperately to maintain their new friendship With all the issues the men are dealing with, the story did not become too overwrought, but did not treat anything lightly The drama and emotion are there, but so is a sense of humor the two men share and some strong secondary characters to keep pushing both Jamie and Tom to take some chances Sometimes the POV changes were a bit jarring but really, this was an enjoyable love story and a nice change of pace from the stories where everyone is beautifully built and perfect

    This is another story that break my heart, Jamie is HIV positive and Tom, a war veteran, suffers from PTSD who also lost his legs in the war.In my humble opinion, this story is not a romance per se, after all, these 2 wounded souls finally got together at 70 % of the story.The author mentioned the veterans, healthcare systems, even Obamacare was mentioned in this story I don t live in America, but I learned a thing or 2, and I can really say Americans, your Health system sucks.Moving along with This is another story that break my heart, Jamie is HIV positive and Tom, a war veteran, suffers from PTSD who also lost his legs in the war.In my humble opinion, this story is not a romance per se, after all, these 2 wounded souls finally got together at 70 % of the story.The author mentioned the veterans, healthcare systems, even Obamacare was mentioned in this story I don t live in America, but I learned a thing or 2, and I can really say Americans, your Health system sucks.Moving along with the story, it was quite lovely, a real pity the way Jamie contracted HIV, how many young people out there committed the same mistake and still do It was so sad to see how lonely he felt.Luckily we got a really nice and lovely ending for this charming couple
