What Members Thought

2.5 stars. Uneven m/m romance that starts with the funeral of a twenty-two year old who committed suicide, then switches between flashbacks of his life, the nearly present, and the present, trying to explain how he reached the point of suicide. Oddly, this book contained what felt like a commercial - a section in which specific m/m books and authors were mentioned and one of the characters read an excerpt to another. After that, I was no longer on board with the story.
This story is heartbreaking on so many levels, even the hopeful ending leaves you knowing there are more difficult times ahead. Wade Kelly did a wonderful job of telling this complex story while giving us the different points of view of the three men involved.

Told mostly through flashbacks and journal entries, Jamie is the heart of this book. His suicide is the catalyst to bring together his lifelong best friend Matt, and Darian, the fiancee he leaves behind. Although the two had never met befor
I love a book that invites the reader to become emotionally involved in the world and the characters that become living, breathing entities. This book was an emotional rollercoaster that spanned time and dealt with difficult issues. Jamie is the heart of this book and all of his emotions are laid out in journal/memory style. Matt and Dare add to the complement of Jamie and it was great to see the strength of love and character that they had for each other.

It weighed on the heart to learn about
