Jordie done good.
on 17 October 2010
I bought this after reading St Nacho's because perversely I wanted to know what happened to the 'bad' guy from that story. Jordan wasn't bad, just lost.
This book was so different and I can't explain why. Jordan comes to St Nacho's after prison and rehab to build a new life near the only friend that makes him feel like 'home'. He doesn't want to mess with Cooper's new life - he just maybe wants some of the happiness to spread to him. He also seems to have the idea in his head that he has to atone for his past sins - and keep on atoning. He wants to serve people (not in a kinky way so get that thought out of your head) - he just wants to help people feel better.
Enter Ken. A jock who lost someone close to him, he's in a lot of pain emotionally as well as physically. The attraction between the two of them is pretty much instantaneous. Ken is pretty relentless in his pursuit whilst Jordie is struggling with how he feels and what he should do. An attack brings the only other person to him that loves him as he is and he starts to rebuild his life. In the meantime, Ken has to show his family the side of himself that he had kept hidden and figure out how to get Jordie to accept the chance to be happy.
The sex is there - oh baby, is it there *fans self* - but there is so much love in this story: love for friends, family, new people and old, and of course the love that St Nacho's seems to bring out in everyone who finds their way there.
