Love can unite people in both life and death. In Loving Edits, best-selling author Mick Henley contacts his editor and former lover after seven years with a request: Help his current lover, Tono Garat, revise his love story. Paul refuses, but when Mick reveals that he is dying, Paul and Tono must work together to support Mick during his final days.
In Tono, Paul and Tono must somehow cope with the aftermath of Mick’s death, including a final request to start a foundation together to support writers and artists with ALS. Tono and Paul don’t know how to be together without Mick between them, but maybe this latest project can intervene.
And finally, in Momentos: Mick’s Journey, travel back to the beginning, when teenagers Mick and Paul first meet and fall in love… and then are driven apart. Tono heals Mick’s heart, but Mick inspires two men at odds to come together at last.
This trilogy is so gripping. It is heartbreaking and remarkable at the same time. I can honestly say that I learned a lot from reading this book which is rare in a romance.
I was not really familiar with ALS before I read this book. From reading this trilogy I found out just how heartbreaking this disease is. Mick is one of the main characters in this book and he suffers from this disease. ALS is in a lot of ways worse then cancer or even AIDS because you can live with these diseases but ALS is a death sentence for whomever has it and it is a matter of how the person who has this disease decides to live out the remainder of their time on this earth that makes the disease a little more tolerable.
Nick was. It ready to give up and just lie down and die that is for sure. He wanted to live out the remainder of his time with the people he loved most in the world which is Tono and Paul.
Paul is Mick’s childhood love and Tono is Mick’s adult love but he knows when they all meet that there is something very special between the three of them and he knows he wants the chance to explore it. The question is will Paul and Tono go along with what he wants without killing each other or will they all have to go their separate ways because it is a total disaster.
Mick knows if given the chance Mick and Tono can be happy together and help one another through everything when he finally does pass away but he is not sure how either man will react and if they are willing to even try.
This is a heartbreaking love story about losing someone very special and finding a new reason to be happy again once that happens. This is not an easy journey for any of these men but it is truly an amazing love story that is so worth ththe reading.
