It's about friggin' time, People!

Blay and Quinn have been best friends for years. Years. As Blay grew up in a healthy, warm home, Quinn was a constant disappointment to his elitist parents. As Blay explored his sexuality and came to terms with who he is and who he loves, Quinn used sex as a tool, a defense mechanism, an escape. And these best friends have been best friends through their changes, through the brotherhood, through everything. Until a few books ago when all that went to hell.

So now we're back with Blay and Quinn's story and I'm SO HAPPY to say that yes, dear reader. Yes. It does live up to your expectations. Go get it now.

The two boys have a long road ahead of them, filled with painful rejections and bitter memories. Quinn has a journey of self discovery and self realization to go through, and Blay is too fed up with his former best friend to be along for the ride.
That is until you throw in some misunderstandings, some Band of Bastards, a new leader from the Omega and oh, this guy Assail who is... we'll get to him later.

In any event, stuff happens in this book and the Ward moves the plot along quickly, never letting the reader get boggled down or losing sight of whose story this is really about: Blay and Quinn. Whew! In past books, there was little romance, little conflict, too much plot. I'm happy to say that this book is back to the earlier ones. Yes, stuff is happening. We see a few of our favorite old friends But make no mistake, this is Blay and Quinn all the way.

Ward balances out Layla's storyline and introduces a couple new romances that are simmering for books to come. I cannot wait for one of them, which left off at a great cliffhanger ending. Oh, and his name is Assail.
Hot steamy homosexual sex. Heartbreaking fights. Tears. Redemption. It has it all.

So what are you waiting for?
