This book is a bit hard for me to review because it’s hard to really describe the characters and the depth of their relationship without giving too much away. This book made me think and it made me cry and it brought a few sighs out as well.
The main characters Emmet and Jeremey are both characters who are different (not on the mean). Emmet’s family is so loving and supportive that most the time he’s okay with that and he’s been raised to know that being like everyone else isn’t the best thing and that there is no normal. Unfortunately Jeremey wasn’t given the same love and support. His family wanted him to be “normal” and refused to accept that he needed help. This book really brought home how much of a difference having a loving and supportive family can make. This book showcases both Emmet and Jeremey and how they find a place where they belong and discover that someone who fits in their lives perfectly. That someone who sees them and accepts them and loves them because not despite who they are. I loved the language that they developed between the two of them for when they were overwhelmed or how they would text instead of talking because sometimes it was easier.
I also loved David who was a very important secondary character. I loved that Emmet saw David as a man not a paraplegic. Although Emmet didn’t like David for quite awhile David really liked that Emmet treated him as a man not a man in a wheel chair. This book hit me in so many different ways and the story was SO MUCH MORE than an M/M romance.
I highly recommend this book if you’re looking for a touching and emotional story. I give this book 4 Charms!
