|Justin Foster escapes from his home one balmy summer night. He's nineteen and has spent most of his young life being ridiculed for his looks, and taunted for being gay. He's habitually beaten by his abusive father and virtually ignored by his oppressed Mom. He gets on a bus to go live with his cousin Travis. There he finds acceptance, love and a job. He also meets Logan O'Brien, recently moved to town. Both are instantly attracted to each other. Justin is hesitant to act upon the attraction due to his past but mainly because Logan is straight. Logan is overwhelmed by his feelings but he can't help how he feels. Justin needs to believe in someone and Logan needs Justin. Together they can make it work.
Third in the Rock Bay series, this one is a cute sweet gay-for-you story. Justin is my favorite; I liked everything about him. Logan is a good guy who deserved someone as wonderful as Justin. Their developing romance is syrupy sweet, but it was nicely developed. It's always nice to catch up with old friends so I loved seeing some of the previous characters. Unfortunately, Justin's father as the antagonist was easy to dislike and left a stench. The first part of the story really flowed well although it lost some of it's steam toward the end. If you like emotional stories with a happy ending you'll enjoy the read.
