Publisher's Summary

Star football player Jack Miller had it all. The perfect family, looks, girls hanging on his every word, and the respect of most people in his town. But one thing was missing - a man to be his own.
When Andrew Collins showed up in small-town, conservative Sweet, Georgia, he looked more scrawny mutt than high school senior. Andrew's plan was to keep his head down and graduate high school, leaving his family behind to start his real life.
When he meets Andrew, Jack thinks he's found heaven, but reality holds him in check until one night when his lips gently slide across Andrew's and fireworks go off.
As lust and something a little deeper brings them together, compelling them to take chances, people start to notice. Then the unthinkable happens, and Jack's parents find out he likes guys. The battle lines are drawn and they vow to pray the gay away.

Any additional comments?

This book was recommended to me by my sister and i'm glad she did. Sara York takes on two of societies sensitive and conflicting subjects. This book reinforces my belief that homosexuality is not a choice but is innate. Why would anyone choose to be abused, controlled in the ways this book portrays. I almost forgot this book was fiction as this story is so powerful. Jack and Andrew are truly in love and yet have to keep their love hidden from everyone. Jacks father is the most hippo-critical minister who physically abuses his son whilst Andrews parents choose to control their sons sexuality by food deprivation.

The lines between fiction and the true reality of life are blurred in such a powerful and disturbing way throughout this book. Jason Frazier has done an excellent job narrating this book, he portrayed Billy, a seven year old and obviously gay young boy extremely well.

The only negative, being that as i am blind using audible books is my only way of reading novels and after listening to the first part of this trilogy i was dismayed to discover the other two installments are not available on audio as of yet......If i had known this i wouldn't have purchased this title as it has left me frustrated as the first installment is a truly great piece of writing yet it seems i may never get to experience these characters full journey.

Where is my happy ending????
