Danny Sims is in over his head, torn between his abusive lover, Joshua, and Jay Holtsclaw, the bartender up the street, who offers Danny the one thing he never gets at home: understanding.My Dragon, My Knight by John Inman
When Joshua threatens to get rid of Danny’s terrier, Danny knows he has to act fast. Afraid of what Joshua will do to the dog, and afraid of what Joshua will do to him if he tries to leave, Danny does the only thing he can do.
But Danny isn’t a complete fool. He has enough sense to run into the arms of the man who actually cares for him—the man he’s beginning to trust.
Just as their lives together are starting to fall into place, Danny and Jay learn how vengeful Joshua can be.
And how dangerous.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Running away from your abusive partner and found your sanctuary doesn't make you one hundred percent safe.
ask it to Denny and Joy, his friend, his sanctuary, his lover after they're living together in Jay's house.
No, not like that, they're friends first, the 'relationship' came smoothly by time, not an insta-love kind of love.
They built it one day at the time. Until Denny feel really safe and can trust jay with his heart.
But you know about abusive, jealous ex-lover, right?
They haunted you, and you can't be feeling really safe until 'it's over'.
john Inman didn't write a lovey dovey light reading this time, but some tension afetr tension after tension made, ended with with a bang!
I wish the ending wasn't like that.
Don't worry about the Denny and Jay, but there's something precious in their life was gone after what's Joshua did.
This is a good story though. Not an easy one through the ending, especially the ending. Damn.
