Mark Jennings is at a crossroads. His finance job in the Atlanta nonprofit scene stresses him out, his mother is dying, and his relationship with Brian Jacobs has crashed and burned. He needs a distraction, some way to relax, and a massage seems like just the thing. He never expected his massage therapist, Antonio Roberto, to become his best friend. Despite their differences-Antonio is a divorced single father-the two men forge a firm friendship that weathers Mark's reconciliation with Brian and Antonio's questionable taste in women. Over the years, Antonio remains constant in his support, though others in Mark's life come and go through a revolving door. When a young boy runs away from the group home where he works, Mark finds another door opening. Through it all he holds on to the things his loved ones taught him-about family, about friends and lovers, about life and death. Most importantly, he realizes that sometimes the greatest gift of all is a second chance.

Oh my. Am I crazy or I'm seeing Antonio above there?Almost a year ago I read this, and I need to review it :) . Soon.
I really struggled with what to rate this one. I saw so many awesome reviews that I expected to be blown away, but I just wasn't, not really. It was a very good, well written, heart breaking story, but somehow I felt a disconnect through the whole thing. It's like the story was told in pieces, and I...
