Sue Brown keeps writing these wonderful stories that keep you hooked. This one is about James a brilliant lawyer who has to endure violent beatings by his husband, which started after they were in a serious car accident. James is a total flirt, but means nothing by it, using it to cover all the trauma and pain in his life. He is actually attracted to Ethan a much younger man who has just started at the firm, and as Ethan is also gay, he bumps into James at a gay club and later on his way home comes across James who is staggering due to being beaten up severely. James tells Ethan he was mugged, and Ethan takes him to hospital, where it seems they all know James, as he's been in several times with supposed muggings. Ethan rings his CO who happens to also be James' cousin to come and sort things out. Ethan and James form a sort of friendship, and it is one of the very few friends James has. This is a beautiful story, one that I also found moving and sad at times, as James struggles with the problems in his life.

I will admit I wasn't too sure about this book, but I am so glad I took a chance. I fell in love with the main characters but it wasn't always easy. Sometimes I really did not like James, but others I did. To watch someone who u thought was a total bastard to be someone who was very very vulnerable and afraid is very hard.
This is definitely worth reading. 5 stars and more.
