Sebastian's Journal by Eden Elsworth is the story of Sebastian (who leads a bit of a 'rich boy' hedonistic lifestyle) and Nathan (who is homeless and has been for a few years) and a chance meeting between them leading to an unlikely relationship.
Sebastian is a bit of a hard, tough cookie to crack, and by his own admittance has never really cared about anyone but himself, most of all in bed where he is only out to satisfy himself. Nathan on the other hand is so fragile & sensitive and really needs all the help he can get. Both personalities are due to their upbringing, and Nathan also due to his line of work on the streets.
After a run-in (literally) and then a parting, Sebastian & Nathan find each other again and Sebastian takes (even more so now) fragile Nathan under his wing. As usual I don't want to give too much away, but Sebastian starts to keep a journal of what has happened to Nathan to make him the way he is now and what is happening now due to this, and it is shown to Nathan's therapist as he doesn't talk much. I like the way this story is written as we don't really see too much of the journal entries in themselves, but we know what is going in there.
Through the course of the story we see Sebastian & Nathan's exteriors reverse - Sebastian turns sensitive, and Nathan turns into the tough one. I think both of the characters were like this deep down, but they just needed each other to bring it out.Read more ›
Sebastian is rich and helps Nathan, not expecting to fall for him. You could say it's a Cinderella story, but this book deals with lots of dark issues including child abuse, rape, homelessness and prostituion. Don't let that put you off though, it is a wonderful story of two people turning their life around.
Sebastian, did I like him to begin with - no, but when he found Nathan something came alive in him and yes having disposable money made it easy for him to do what was necessary.
Nathan, poor bloke broken, mistreated, abused.....well messed up. What I liked is his problems weren't papered over, they were met head on. I loved watching him blossom.
I have to mention Fen, Sebs sister, she was great a real trouper/mother hen not the spoilt brat I thought she'd be when she first showed up.
The sexual situations are detailed enough to make it a sexy read but due to the other issues dealt by the book they are done in a sensitive way.
This is the first time I've read this authors work and would recommend others give this gay romance a try. I will definitely be reading more.
4.5 star read
I don't normally write reviews for books and don't normally read anything that mentions Lord's and playboy sons on the description, but this was a freebie so I made an exception.I am so pleased I did.
ABUSE HAPPENS. Something we all wish it didn't but it does. This book deals with some of the consequences of child abuse. It doesn't say there is a magic cure (although having money definitely gets you access to better help), and acknowledges that not everyone is going to land a rich Lord's son to rescue them.
This book is about more than that. Both main characters change and grow as a result of knowing each other and Sebs development is perhaps more striking than Nathan's.
Go on give this book a go.
