Honorable Mention for Gay Contemporary Romance in the 2011 Rainbow Awards.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.

I love these books, they are full of warm and generous characters. Though each of them hurt in their own way, together they are able to make it through.Each character is unique, individual, yet there are things to love about all of them.Some of the issues raised in these books are very close to my h...
Amy Lane. She gets me every time. I’ve always liked Jeff since we first met him in Keeping Promise Rock and I was so ready for his story. In these books we always get more than the story of the main couple. That’s because there’s so much to this little family they have created for themselves! While ...
4.5 starsAmy Lane is probably one of my favorite authors. She's one of the very few that always make me cry. She's got stories that make me fall in love with the characters and that's exactly why I love her books.In this one, it's no different. I enjoyed reading Jeff and Collin's story. Finally unde...
