Living Promises by Amy Lane

Can Collin help Jeff face the phantoms of his past and gamble on a future filled with happiness? Living Promises by Amy Lane, available from Dreamspinner Press.

Six years ago, Jeff Beachum comforted a frightened teenager outside an HIV treatment clinic, and Collin Waters has remembered his kindness ever since. Now, after six years of crushing on the kind, brown-eyed sweetheart of his dreams, Collin is feeling adult and together enough to make his move. Too bad fate, which has never been kind to Jeff, has something else in mind.

Jeff's life had fallen completely apart before that long-ago day, and it isn’t much better now. Jeff has toughened up, become self-reliant, been the funny guy his friends turn to, the one who gives advice and comfort when needed. But every phantom from Jeff’s past is about to come out to haunt him, and the family Jeff has staked his future on isn’t in such great shape either. Collin is more than a starry-eyed kid, and it’s a good thing, because Jeff’s going to need all the help he can get. No one knows better than Jeff that life can be too short to turn your back on honest love, and that living happily is the best promise of all.

Oh yes - do keep the tissues handy - I cried all the way through, silly sop that I am :)

my review

Katrina I base my rating of Amy Lane books on the number of tear-filled tissues piled nearby after I've finished reading. I rated this 5 stars for "Wet Mess."
Used a bunch after yet another traumatic "sunday dinner." Really how much more can Deacon take?!
And, I would like to commend Amy for representing the spectrum of gay men. It seemes like every story I pick up recently had the "I'm gay, but not that gay" defense. There's nothing wrong with a little flame and glitter. Yay Mickey and Jeff!
