I think I get where the author was trying to go with this book. I think he was really vying for the ultimate in romance. Reaching to convey without any doubt to the reader that Eric and Nick are soul mates. Trying to show us, step by step, how this is so and why we should believe it wholeheartedly like they do. Unfortunately, the story gets lost in the end goal and ends up making both men seem immature, unrealistic and overly needy.

I really wanted to like this book, as it's a nice love story be

Shelves: not-for-me
Ten minutes into this book and I already regretted the purchase. The writing is not up to par and the dialogue is horrible. While reading I was thinking really. Come on. Who would say that?!!!
I made myself read the entire book. It's not the worst book ever. It even made me smile once or twice, but I would never recommend it. It just seem very amateurish and not worth the time/effort to read it.

Well, the cover’s nice… Unfortunately, the writing in this m/m romance was clumsy and choppy and the characters unrealistic and gushing.

I didn't actually finish this one - I got a little tired about hearing about how virile the men were.

This is a beautiful and passionate story of two men falling in love, creating a life together with family and friends... surviving hate and violence, with their love and faith in each other becoming stronger. It celebrates love, passion, family, and friendship. There is a lot that happens in this novel in terms of what happens after Eric and Nick declared their love for each other and began living together, which adds to why I liked it very much. I felt good knowing the two and seeing their ...more

I'm suprised many ppl disliked this book. Imo this story is so sweet.

I know,I know, the main characters are extremely sweet with each other, but that's why I liked it.

We are so used to stories that involves a lot of conflicts and volatile couples that a story with a slow burn romance was refreshing!

I know that seems impossible to have a supporting family and friends but why do stories always have to focus on the awful side of outing?!

Loved this story.

P.S: I'm writing this review after the secon

This is a terrible book. Even when compared solely with other books in what is probably the worst written genre in existence, this book still stands out as a prime example of stupid dialogue, one-dimensional characterization, and pointless scenes that do nothing to further the plot. It is painfully, woefully bad. I am trying to think of something positive to say about it but there's nothing. Absolutely nothing. If anyone tries to give you this book for free I recommend you run as fast as you can ...more

Eric I loved from the get-go. Nick was even easier to love. Two guys meet and fall so deep so quickly. I was hooked from the first chapter and refused to end it til it ended. Then I gave a sigh of relieve and found "saving Trevor" and got my guys for another few hours. Steve Sampson, thank you for writing and believing in unconditional love and the realism that comes with it.

VERY sweet story. The drama in the story is a little bit "high school" but the budding relationship between the two leads kept me going. It spans over a year which is another plus to this story. You really see the relationship grow.

A sweet story about 2 men falling in love. Angsty things happen to them but not between them which is a nice change. Hot sex scenes put this right up there with my other favorite feel-good reads.

Yeah this is romance but do they have to be so damned happy? Too much loving not enough conflict for my taste.
May 18, 2010 Carissa rated it really liked it
I loved this story. The events that Eric and Nick had to go through only make their relationship better. You can feel how strong the love is between these two men.
