I loved this story! Yes, it is sad, and yes, parts of this may make you cry - the things that happen to these guys are nothing short of horrific. But they are so strong, sweet and romantic and are just perfect for each other. Jake is such a sweetheart, so low key and sexy. I just wanted to root him on and give him hugs. Brent is wonderful as well. It was great to see his eyes open to how wonderful life outside the city can be and to realize that the main reason he was able to do so was Jake. I'm glad I finally gave this book a try.
