Levi Binder is a Miami bartender who cares about only two things: sex and surfing. Ostracized by his Mormon family for his homosexuality, Levi is determined to live his life his own way, but everything changes when he meets massage therapist Jaime Marshall.

Jaime is used to being alone. Haunted by the horrors of his past, his only friend is his faithful dog, Dolly. He has no idea how to handle somebody as gorgeous and vibrant as Levi.

Complete opposites on the surface, Levi and Jaime both long for something that they can only find together. Through love and the therapeutic power of touch, they’ll find a way to heal each other, and they’ll learn to live as sinners in a family of saints.

This title was previously published by Amber Allure. It has been re-edited, but the content is unchanged.

This book came out of nowhere for me. I had no plans to read it in the near future, but I saw it on my kindle app while looking something else up. Opened it. I ended up reading it from cover to cover in one sitting. It was touching and full of emotion. It moved me. I won’t write more as I’m late to the party and there are many great reviews out there for this one already, but if you if love stories about hurt/comfort/healing and friends to loversplease give this a go! Highly recommend. 5+ Stars.
