Was given this book has an ARC.....OMG I was not dissapointed......what started out has a high school fumbling around ended in Julian and Nicks life spiralling into different pathways..... Nick went on to be a firefighter in 9/11 and Julian fulfilled he's dream off becoming a top fashion designer a chance meeting all them years later and for Julian the sparks still there but he is openly a gay Man however it's not so easy for Nick he still has not come out to family or his work colleagues.....this is a brilliantly written story of bigotry and PTSD with moments that had me in tears..... The characters in this book had me gripped from beginning to end let's hope there's more from this author and the other characters soon a must read for all

I'm clearly in the minority with my review...
I started off really loving this book but then about two thirds of the way through something happened, and I'm still not sure what it was, but suddenly I was no longer enjoying it half as much.
The main characters are likeable in the beginning and the secondary characters add depth to the story but it became very repetitive and, dare I say, boring.
I got fed up of hearing how shy Zach is and what a whore Marcus is.
I read over and over again about how scared Nick was and I got tired of Julian pushing and pushing him to come out and then getting angry when he expressed concern over it.
Julian said over and over again that he doesn't want to force Nick into doing anything he's not comfortable with (i.e. coming out) but then does exactly that.
I found at about 80% that I no longer really cared how Nick got on at work or if Julian's new design idea worked out.
I pretty much skimmed the last 10%. I just couldn't bring myself to care.
All of a sudden Julian and Nick were talking to each other like teenage girls. It all got overly sappy and tooth achingly sweet.
Several people seemingly had personality transplants during the course of this book. Nick went from being so far in the closet he was probably in Narnia to being out and proud. While I'm all for this, it happened far to fast to be believable.
Devon went from being a complete di*k throughout the book to owning up to stealing Julian's ideas and apologising due to the nature of Julian's idea. Again this was too far fetched to be anything like believable.
Just when you think that's it, Jensen turns up with his own completely unbelievable apology.
The speech at the end...

Interesting world the main characters live in. Fashion and fire fighting worked well here and the characters are convincingly painted as strong, real people. Everything worked in this well written story- and convinced!

This is the first book in a new series The Breakfast Club which focuses on three friends Julian, Marcus and Zach who meet weekly for breakfast and catch up with each other. This book is Julian’s story.

Nick and Julian were once teenage sweethearts but when Nick could not acknowledge he was gay he walked away from Julian. How could he be gay coming from a traditional family with a hard headed firefighter father? So leaving Julian broken hearted he went on with his life, so carefully planned out to follow in his father’s footsteps as a firefighter. But then 9/11 happened and the events of that day coupled with the guilt just left Nick in a state of perpetual stagnated life. The only highlight he finds is in his frequent visits to the burns unit, helping and supporting the young patients.

Julian has always been comfortable in his own skin, he knows who he is and what he wants, and for a time that was Nick until he walked out of Julian’s life. He has never forgotten his first and only love but he has filled his life with his career as a fashion designer, travelling the World which brought him to having his own fashion line and show. But then due to devious dealings, his long awaited for chance in the limelight crashed and burned, along with his reputation. Whilst drowning in his despair he comes face to face with Nick again and the hurts of the past meet the hurts of the present.

This was a wonderfully written story with an insightful lesson in second chances. I just love second chance romance and this pairing were a delight to see regain the closeness they once had. There is a lot of angst, guilt and sorrow to get through so it is not a light hearted read but definitely an engrossing read.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is a very moving story - both on a personal relationship level, but also due to the impact of 9/11 on Nick and his life thereafter. It is easy to imagine there are many people who have similar experiences. By choosing the professions of the two main protagonists as she did, the author gives the reader the opportunity to see both sides of the story. I loved how friends and family played important roles in the unfolding of the drama. Julian and Nick together are really hot, and the chemistry is definitely present. At times I found it to be loaded with emotion, and certainly I was affected enough to need tissues. You might therefore want to read it somewhere where that wouldn't matter!

Thank you Ms Stevens for a thoughtful and intense read.
