Trent Arlington has a terminal illness and due to the recent downfall of his personal and professional life, he takes that as a sign that he shouldn’t be alive. But when a chance encounter with a rent boy gives him something to live for, it also means that he will have to face his demons, both present and past.
Warning: This book contains violent rape scenes.
Shew. This was definitely NOT my kind of book. This book was dark and violent beyond what I normally can handle. If you are not into extremely dark and violent books or if you trigger at non-con, you’ll want to give this one a pass. This book was very hard for me to take and has left me very upset even days later. However, I recognize that this is a case of it’s me not the book so I also want to be objective in this review.
If you can get past the subject matter, the writing was actually very well done. The characters are very complex and have had lives that were impossible for most people to take in life. When you read what the main character Trent is often thinking, at times he almost seems philosophical. He’s had a lot in his life to overcome and in some ways he never has. Which brings out a side in him that, to some people like myself, is not very pretty. I think that is part of why I gave this book a few extra stars as well. When you look at what he went through in his life, you can almost sympathize with how his life is now.
When he meets Justin, things get rough, too rough for me personally, but you may not agree. Trent has found out some distressing news and Justin happens to be something he needed to let go and just be. Justin’s life is as dark as Trent’s for his own reasons and they are both fumbling along trying to help each other with their fantasies and helping each other cope.
As far as anything else pertaining to this book, I have to stop there because the subject matter was horrible for me. This book went past what I could handle and left me drained, but not in a good way. This was beyond violent and contained very difficult subject matter. If you are into it, the book is for you. It is very dark. Happy reading!
