I really adored this very sweet story of a man coming home again and finding all his dreams can come true. I truly felt for Ryan as no one should have to go through what he did in the four years after his parents threw him out. The fact that he got up the courage to return for his sister's wedding told me so much about the kind of man he was. This was the first Serena Yates book I read but I don't think it will be the last.
When Ryan got up his courage to tell his parents he was gay, they told him it was a sin and he would burn in hell for it. They threw him out and threatened his friends if he tried to get help from anyone. Ryan lived on the streets, he headed to Canada and has just barely made ends meet trying to stay away. He discovers his twin sister, Nicole, is marrying his best friend, Peter, and even though Ryan is terrified they hate him and want nothing to do with him, he has to see his sister on her wedding day.
Daniel, Peter's older brother, can't believe his eyes when he finds Ryan on a park bench the night before the wedding. He looked so hard for Ryan when he disappeared, not believing his parents who said he ran away. Daniel, Peter and Ryan were always inseparable, regardless of the five year age difference, but the last few years before Ryan left, Daniel started to feel more. Can he convince Ryan to stay and make a life with him, because Daniel isn't going to lose him again.
This is a fairly short story but well worth the read. It is sweet with just the right amount of angst and the two main characters are very lovable men. Now I'm looking for more!
