Beautiful story! Emotional and honest! A whole new world for me but I'm so glad that I read it. I am such a fan now! ( )

3.5 stars.

I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. I'm not quite sure why. I think it's because I found Antonio & Mark's relationship kind of odd in the beginning half of the book. It never really sat quite right with me. It felt like more than friendship and therefore had this infidelity thread woven into it even though he was supposedly so in love with Brian. Brian's death was very touching and did bring a few tears though. Overall, it was a good book, but I didn't seem to love it as much as everyone else. That always seems to happen to me with books that have such glowing reviews. Maybe I expect too much from them. Still, it was a sweet story and most people will continue to love it. ( )

This story, Mark's story needs to come with a warning. Something like "'Readers Beware' or 'Read With Caution': the following story will break your heart... aaaaand then put it back together like it's brand new".

One of my status updates best explained how I felt: "I think I love the MC. I want him to be my best friend".

Then events occur which broke my heart.... the writing was achingly beautiful and I can't imagine there could have been better words to facilitate the situation the characters were in. I could see the freaking room where it happened and hear the sounds within the room.

"This was the husband of my heart." - Oh gawd help me, that scene killed me...

The supporting characters were fun and intriguing while the plot was interesting. I'm so grateful that it ended as a little ray of sunshine.

I just have one question. When's the sequel coming out? ( )

This book had me up reading into the wee hours of the morning wiping tears from my eyes. This book hit all the right notes. It was sweet with out being sappy. It was poignant without being trite. It was simply amazing and especially so given that this is the author's first book. I read this book based upon rave reviews thinking it couldn't be that good but I would probably enjoy it. I was simply blown away by how much I enjoyed this book. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

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.… (more)
