Billy is tired and confused. He has lived his life according to everyone else, he has yet to figure things out for himself. When he is goaded into seeing a stylist for his sister's wedding everything comes to a head. Billy goes through some self discoveries and must fight his way through so much to find the happiness that he has always longed for but always seemed out of reach for him. Shaz may be the one thing in Billy’s life that feels good but is he what Billy should want?  Life is hard enough as it is without being gay. Can Billy find his way or will he forever be under the thumb of his mother and never know true happiness?

This is a wonderful story about a young man who finally begins to find himself. After so many years of badgering and controlling from his mother Billy has come to the point of realization. He loves his mother but it is time for him to live for himself. I enjoyed watching Billy find out who he truly was. He blossoms with the help of Chaz and his sister. I adore Shaz he is an outrageous man but underneath all the flash is a good man. The two men are good together. Seperately they are strong but together they are remarkable. Each one compliments the other and gives him just what he needs to succeed.  I loved seeing the different way that Shaz helped Billy with his fears. Shaz believes in Billy and fights hard to give Billy what he needs. Their attraction grows and soon turns into something more and both men must make some hard choices.

Their story moves at a good pace and is full of emotions. As I listened to their story unfold I was soon immersed in a beautiful love story with wonderful characters and a great plot. Tara Lain has done a good job of pulling you in and I cannot wait to see where else she takes this new series.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
