For the last year, Jay Warren has struggled to find the nerve to tell his wife he’s gay. Every time he gets the chance, though, he freezes up. He’s ashamed of hiding it all this time and he doesn’t want to hurt her, and the guilt has been almost unbearable.

When his wife dies suddenly, Jay’s conscience threatens to eat him alive.

Funeral director Scott Lawson deals with the bereaved every day, and he’s all too familiar with the inside of the closet. He offers Jay some much-needed compassion and understanding, and from that connection comes a friendship that quickly—perhaps too quickly—turns into something more.

But are grief, guilt, and loneliness the only things tying them together? Or will Scott get fed up with being used as an emotional crutch before Jay realizes what he has?

This 78,000 word novel was previously published.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn't lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don't tell Lauren. And definitely don't tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut...

The blurb sounded intriguing. Grief management is not something I have come across in m/m romance fiction. And I got the book for free, so it was all go for me!
What I liked about this book:
- the scenario: coming out and coming to terms with the death of a loved one (and Jay did love Misty) at the same time is quite a tall order
- Jay's struggle is well documented: he s confused, eaten up by guilt and it does show on the page. That is really well done.
- both men are aware that despite their attraction to each other it is not a good idea to jump into anything before Jay has sorted himself out. The UST resulting from their reluctance to give in to temptation got me really involved in the story.
- the sexual tension sizzling away between the two of them
- their cute conversations made me chuckle

What I didn't like/understand:
- the argument that they shouldn't be together because of a conflict of interests - In my opinion Scott's professional relationship with Jay ended on the day of the funeral, but why it should have a relevance after that I'm not sure. But maybe that's my loose morals???
- I couldn't help noticing repetition of certain sentences ('I like the way you think' for example), but it didn't bother me that much.
- I do admit that books written in the first person are not totally my cup of tea. I can live with it, but I just prefer third person in general. I must say I did miss Scott's POV. He seems to have the patience of an angel, and his compassion and understanding are pretty exemplary. For some reason I thought there would be more to his back story. I got the impression he was hurt in the past, too.
- Jay needed absolution, but getting it through <spoiler> Misty's diary </spoiler> was really too easy. Seeing a grief counsellor was a lot more realistic.

On the whole I enjoyed this book and would happily recommend it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A grieving widower - a different type of coming out story 9. Januar 2017
Von Mike Harms - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
In many ways, this emotional story strikes me as closer to the real experience I have seen in the gay community than the typical twists and turns in many male/male romances. While I'm sure it continues today, the pattern of a gay man in denial, getting married to a woman, and coming out a bit later in life was very common among my gay friends in the 1980's and 1990's. On the positive side, it was meaningful to me to read a sympathetic but not necessarily uncritical story about this journey that so many of my friends endured.

On the other hand, the story moves through some life-changing actions and decisions at lightning speed, and I almost stopped reading at one point that seemed a bit disconnected from reality to me. To the author's credit, this "too soon" development then becomes an important theme throughout the rest of the story, so overall the emotional reactions eventually seemed relatively real and realistic.

Still, given such a weighty subject, it remains a somewhat brief male/male romance, with sudden heated scenes and the HEA required in the genre. In the end the speed of events (emotional and also perhaps physical) still seemed somewhat unrealistically quick to me and the ending a bit pat, so a solid, high four star "really good" read for me (rather than being blown away with five stars).

3.0 von 5 Sternen not as good as I'd hoped 18. Februar 2017
Von T. Jones - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed this book, but not as much as I'd thought I would, given the premise. It covers some serious topics, including grief and self-honesty. While the characters handle the emotional arcs in believable ways, and while I liked all the characters, I found nothing particularly surprising or challenging even though the POV character was supposed to. That's a serious flaw. There is, overall, a lack of tension. We are too often told how Jay feels rather than shown how he feels. His is the only point of view, and while there are some clever alternate views shown in how other characters react to him, it wasn't enough.

The other major flaw is a weak ending, and a boring epilogue.

I'm not disappointed only because I'm a writer. Every book I read teaches me how to write better stories. If you're looking for wisdom in this tale that isn't found nearly everywhere these topics are dealt with, you may be disappointed.

DISCLAIMER: The following review was originally posted on my book blog (link in bio).

Fun story: Woke up this morning and found myself literally stuck in bed. I had been sleeping on one end of the blanket and the dog was sleeping on the other end of the blanket in a way that I was almost in a cocoon. Somehow managed to get my hands out and since it was rather difficult (and I didn't particularly want to) to move, I decided to read a bit. This book was just lying there on my Kindle, waiting to be read... and here I am, several hours later with a book that had a pretty awesome premise, but unfortunately with a somewhat lacking execution.

There were parts of this book that I quite enjoyed, but I have to admit that most of the time I was left wondering WHY on earth did Jay marry his wife Misty in the first place and why should anyone care who you're interested in as long as the relationships you're in are consensual and between people of sound mind. No-one forced him to marry Misty, did they? Jay seemed to have a lot (and I mean A LOT) of guilt for not telling his wife that he'd like to separate and he's actually into guys. He seemed to have even more guilt for not telling his family that he's actually not interested in women. All in all, a ton of guilt and angst...

Maybe I'm the wrong person to say this, but no-one should ever worry whether their family accepts them or not for who they are attracted to in the first place. As long as these relationships are between adults of sound mind, that is. I don't think anyone should ever worry whether their parents accept them for liking someone of the opposite sex or someone of the same sex or multiple someones. The family is supposed to support you no matter what and yes, I know, a lot of people are bigoted and that's why it is difficult for some to get out of the closet, so to speak, but frankly why does it matter if it's two (or more) men or two women or a man and a woman in a relationship? And I guess that's one of the reason's why I really loved the protagonist's sister so much. There's not much of her, but she seemed to share my point of view here and frankly, Jay ought to talk more with his sister.

I would recommend this book if you're in the mood for some angst. If you're looking for something lighthearted and fun, I don't think this is really it...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Heart wrenching, sweet and romantic 28. August 2014
Von Tracy Muth ~Bayou Book Junkie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
While waiting for his wife to get home, so he can try again to work up the nerve to finally tell her he is gay, Jay's wife is killed in a car accident. The pain and guilt is eating him up. The night before the funeral he meets the funeral directors son, Scott. He and Scott talk and he admits to Scott he is gay and the guilt he feels for never telling Misty.

Jay and Scott start talking and discover they have a lot in common. They become friends and eventually lovers, but will Jay's guilt tear them apart?

The 1st few chapters were good, then the book stalled. At about the 1/2 way point when I was getting bored and thinking of closing the book, it picked up after that it held me captive until the last page.

These guys are good together. They had good chemistry. They were just sweet together. There wasn't much sex, but what was there was not only hot, but loving. You felt the love from these two. It ended perfectly.

Heartbreaking to watch the struggle of dealing with the loss of a loved one while trying to find yourself in all the pain...
It was painful and then it was raw and then it was love.

It ends beautifully but I think it'd be a while before i find it in my heart to read this again ^^
