I have to say this is one of the best and most complex books I've read in a while. The character development was amazing. The author handled the issues of religion and sexual abuse with perfect pitch. Both these men were broken, for very different reasons but when they found each other they began to heal. There were no quick fixes or easy solutions to the issues the men struggled with, and I would've been disappointed if everything was resolved easily. Despite dealing with some very emotionally damaged characters the author managed to keep the tone of the book up beat and hopeful. This couple is now one of my all time favorites because of the journey and growth they went through to build their happily ever after.
