Seb pushed away from the counter and turned, bumping into Tom, not realizing he had followed him. He stared into Tom's blue eyes and watched as the pupils dilated. Tom licked his lips, and Seb copied the action. His nostrils flared as he caught Tom's scent and he hardened in his jeans. He hadn't been this close to him other than when he'd been fixing his cut eye, and he suddenly had the overwhelming urge to kiss him. Seb looked down at Tom's lips and watched as they parted.He reached a hand up and gently touched Tom's cheek, feeling the stubble on his jaw. Leaning forward, he paused, waiting for Tom to push him away or to speak and when he didn't, he touched his lips to Tom's and felt him inhale sharply. Nothing happened for a second, and then Tom hesitantly kissed him back, just a meeting of lips, a series of small kisses before they both pulled away, looking at each other.
He stepped back and looked at Tom, noting the stunned expression on his face, and he quickly apologized. "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have done that." He cleared his throat. "I'll put some clean clothes in the bedroom for you to use. See you in the morning."He rushed upstairs to his room and shut the door, leaning back and banging his head against it. God, what a fucking idiot. Why the fuck had he done that? Now he's going to think the only reason I let him stay is for sex. Groaning, he threw himself on his bed and glared at the ceiling.

I have to say that this was a very touching read for us.This is the kind of story that tugs at the heart strings as it did ours.I enjoyed the main characters Seb and Tom and getting to know them.You definably felt the pain that Tom was experiencing along with his betrayals and loneliness he felt.It broke my heart and I grieved right along with him.

I always pick a favorite character in a story and mine is going to be Seb.I found him to be  sweet,kind,understanding,smart,
determined and non judgmental along with having a very big heart.I loved how he kept trying to help Tom and never gave up .Seb just wanted to help him get out of a really bad situation even though Tom fought him at every turn yet he never gave up thinking him a loss cause.I admired him for that. Seb was just a all around nice generous loving soul that cared about Tom and those of his friends and you could not help but love him for the kind soul he was.

Tom was more of a complicated character that had his up and downs but you had to love how strong he was in order to survive the things that he was forced to do.I loved how protective he was of his friends.I love how he was brave enough to put his trust in Seb all the while being scared out of his mind of getting hurt and being disappointed yet again.I loved seeing the broken spirit of this man gradually come back to life.

I enjoyed this heart wrenching story that involved parents who were suppose to love and protect their children yet turned their backs on them all because they didn't like their life style choices.A touching emotional story that had a couple following their hearts no matter what the consequences.I love when your able to find your soul mate and they are the one who helps you heal the parts of you that are broken just by believing in you as well as loving you.Makes your heart feel good. 

We are giving this story 3 stars as I felt that there were some loose ends that should have been tied up when it came to Adam and Ben.I also missed that there was not an epilogue I just felt that the story just abruptly ended.I would have loved to have seen a glimpse into the future of this cast of characters and if any of them had found their happy ever afters...
