Israel Ingham’s life has never been easy. He grew up in a house devoid of love and warmth. Nothing he ever did was good enough. The fact Israel is gay just added to the long list of his father’s disappointments.

Then a letter from Eastport Children’s Hospital changes everything.

A discovery is made, one of gross human error. Twenty-six years ago two baby boys were switched at birth and sent home with the wrong families.

Sam, Israel’s best friend, has been his only source of love and support. With Sam beside him every step of the way, Israel decides to meet his birth mother and her son, the man who lived the life Israel should have.

Israel and Sam become closer than ever, amidst the tumultuous emotions of meeting his birth family, and Sam finds himself questioning his feelings toward his best friend. As Israel embraces new possibilities, he needs to dissect his painful relationship with his parents in order to salvage what’s left.

Because sometimes it takes proof you’re not actually family to become one.

The book was perfect. It had amazing characters, a beautiful story and a good backdrop and premise. I loved Israel and Sam and their beautiful friendship which turned into a soul-deep love. I also loved the secondary characters. But most of all I loved the growth of the characters and how they found their happiness. This book is simply perfect. N.R. Walker is an amazing and brilliant author and I’m falling more and more in love with each book. Highly Recommended.
