CLICK TO PURCHASE! Looking for a good contemporary M/M book to read? Something with angst and tension? Then pick up BLUE SKYE by Viki Lyn. This is a wonderful story of love denied and then found again.
Drew is a man living a lie. So eager to please his family and to do his duty, he will deny his own feelings and live a life he hates. He has closed himself off from his feelings in order to survive. Only one person has ever gotten to him. Skye Taylor, a childhood friend. And for one night, he was able to be free. Then Skye leaves and Drew must stay behind. Now Skye is back and Drew must make some hard choices.
Skye has always loved Drew. After one wonderful night with him, he makes plans for them to leave together but Drew never shows up. Skye chooses to leave without him. Now he’s back as a famous artist and Drew is the man who has designed the gallery to showcase his work. It is inevitable that they meet and that sparks will fly.

But there are issues. First and foremost, Drew is married. He has married for family duty and to hide his real desires. Second, Skye won’t be someone’s dirty little secret. He is out and proud. The author, Viki Lyn does a good job of showing both sides to this and I appreciated that. No one person was wrong or right in this.

I loved this book. Both Skye and Drew were men that you could feel for. Both had legitimate reasons for being the way that they were and acting the way that they did. You wanted them to work it out but it seems to be so hard for both of them. When they do come together, the heat rolls off of the pages. By the time the reader reaches the end of the book, you will be rooting so hard for these two to get together. I give this book a solid rating of 4.
