Getting eaten by a dragon wasn't part of Ashe's plan. Welcome to Gray City. The free online library containing 450000+ books. Read books for free from anywhere and from any device. Not that there was much of a plan to begin with, but it had definitely involved more chasing and less running. Ashe supposes there's one good thing about all this: if he has to be trapped in a cave with a very large predator outside, at least he's with Katsu, the company medic and Ashe's current crush. Listen to books in audio format instead of reading.

Orphaned at eleven and bounced around the foster system, Tim learned young that the only thing he could control in life was himself. It was a lesson he took seriously, and it's the only thing that keeps him safe from more heartbreak. He wants to keep his world well-ordered, but he can't seem to keep his friend Conner neatly pigeon-holed. Conner doesn't understand this desire to control things, but he doesn't need to. He loves everything about his control-freak friend, from Tim's black hair and blue eyes to the way he quirks just one eyebrow. Con has loved all these things for years, and now he's learned that it's a short step from loving to falling in love. With Con's arrival, everything starts unraveling in Tim's life. He finds himself questioning his sexual orientation, wrangling with emotions dragged up from his past, and fending off questions from Con's well-meaning family. Drowning in a world out of his control, his one hope is to let go and trust that love will save him. But after so many years of burying his feelings, he's not sure it's possible.

Good points for the book :
-Not a "instant story" which I dislike quite heartily
-Some heavy issues tackled well
-Likable characters
-Quite realistic
-Longish
Why only 3* :
-Relationship is not even remotely equal, since all of the problems are with one partner, and the other is solving them the whole book. Not enough quid-pro-quo
-A problem shown in the book is a serious one, and not to be solved so neatly, or quickly - this could use more exposure
-Not enough said/shown of the helping partner's character. He is rather two-dimensional (always helpful, researching the problem, etc, but somehow lacking in a real dimension)
-The partner with a problem is written to be intelligent (he is a doctor) and resourceful, but it is not shown till the end of the book. A bit too much denial of the problem on his part for a person that is so described.

Really really enjoyed. So much angst - emotion withheld, but eventually shown. Love this author. Can't wait to get the only other book. Man, when will another be written? This was just right. So much packed in this sizable 322 page paperback. I didn't want it to end when I read it September 29, 2009. Man oh man.
It made me laugh - smile - sad - hopeful -frustrated - eager - uncertain - yell! - wow

I bought this book based on the very good reviews here at Amazon, and for the first time since using Amazon reviews, I'm greatly disappointed. I thought the book was boring and repetitive. In the beginning, Con is obnoxiously pushy by touching Tim and getting into his space. Tim is an unlikeable character who pushes people away because he has repressed his hurt and anger over losing his parents when he was young. The author tells us countless times what is wrong with Tim to the point of ad nauseam. The sex scenes revolve around Con trying to get Tim to relax because Tim hates to lose control and be vulnerable. This book will go directly into my trash bin.

4.5 actually! Tim is such a control freak! Then I began to understand why and I then I began to sympathize with him. Ms. McDonald has written a wonderful story about love between two "friends" that need each other and help each other and who love and "trust" each other (whether they know it or not). Conner is so loving and calm and patient. Tim just can't help trusting him and loving him back (though he doesn't even know that he's doing it). Conner is a true friend and is so crazy about Tim even with his odd habits. It's a hard book to put down, but so worth reading!

This book could be considered a coming out story, but it is more than that, or at least, it is one that has dimensions that the usual teenage stuff cannot have. Many of us have known we were gay but uncomfortable with it for years and years, at some level ashamed but unclear why, aside from the usual cultural brainwashing. Frequently, there lies in the psyche's past an event or a pattern of events that weaken the potential courage we must all have to reach adulthood; in short, to become who we are. I remember the stage production of La Cage Aux Folles at the Fox in San Francisco when she sang "I am who I am", [ hope that is the right title] The audience stood. cheered and sang. What an unforgettable experience.
This is a very good book. I look upon Con as a virtual saint for putting up with his arrogant twit lover who has such monumental problems and who can be as nasty as any villain. Still, sometimes it takes a saint to save us.

There haven't been many books in this genre that I have really, really enjoyed, one being Faith & Fidelity by Tere Michaels, and another is this book. I can honestly say that I really got into these well written characters and they completely captured me from the first chapter. I am a stickler for the technical aspects of writing and will be turned off by poor editing and poor writing skills. The characters in the volume are well constructed and completely beliveable. I look for romance in a romance novel and I was not disappointed in this book. The romance is palpable and empathetic. It was so easy to fall in love with the protagonists. If a writer cannot capture my attention from the first paragraph then I will struggle to get involved with the characters and the writing style. I give high marks to JB McDonald for a well written and well developed story. I highly recommend this book and the writer. I look forward to the next work from this writer.

Conflicted and damaged souls help craft a sweet romance and a promised HEA ending. Good character development and a story line focused more on the developing relationship than theatrics or sex.
I loved this book i am not going to go into the details of this book because many have already, but this book was/ is one of the best i have read, the angst the friendship, the awkward moments just touched me, i have a feeling many readers will connect with this book, i loved it... this one is most defiantly on my keeper shelf.
