After reading Blowing it I was soooo happy there was a sequel. I loved Owen and his sexy side and adored Magnus and Owen together. I had expected their relationship would grow….We’d have more fun with their friends and their possibly could be a wedding with all the fixins. I DIDN’T READ THE BLURB……
Kate Aaron has written a story we all cower from….The C Word. I realize I have an issue losing my mother to cancer at 22, so I really wasn’t sure I could read this over 350 page book…..
Kudos Ms Aaron, your telling of this thru the eyes of Owen, were one of the best I have ever read. The finding, the hiding, the not acknowledging the verdict, the treatment were tenderly worded. But Owen would not be underdone….He is feisty, angry, and scared, and we travel the road of a survivor.
Magnus is the keeper, being strong, yet slowly the illness takes its toll on his soul as well. Thru his suffering, Owen lashes out in fear and anger and bitchiness and shame and Magnus carries the mantle until he almost succumbs. Before it is too late,
Owen finally sees what they are becoming and as we go thru the worst , we realize these two belong together forever…and they find they agree…..
