ARC REVIEW : FOR THE LIVING BY L.A. WITT
For the last year, Jay Warren has struggled to find the nerve to tell his wife he’s gay. Every time he gets the chance, though, he freezes up. He’s ashamed of hiding it all this time and he doesn’t want to hurt her, and the guilt has been almost unbearable.
When his wife dies suddenly, Jay’s conscience threatens to eat him alive.
Funeral director Scott Lawson deals with the bereaved every day, and he’s all too familiar with the inside of the closet. He offers Jay some much-needed compassion and understanding, and from that connection comes a friendship that quickly—perhaps too quickly—turns into something more.
But are grief, guilt, and loneliness the only things tying them together? Or will Scott get fed up with being used as an emotional crutch before Jay realizes what he has?
This book was previously published. For The Living by L.A. Witt
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I read this a while ago and forgot to write a review (blame my age,lol).
This is actually one of those love/lust at first sight, that didn't work really good for me. Because, well even Jay never really loved his late wife, it felt rude to lust after Scott, especially in only for a very short time. Not that I'm complaining about their union, I was in need of a quick magical connection at the moment, so it was actually okay, in my dictionary.
And Scott is a perfect man, gosh I wish I have my own Scott. He is a perfection. Almost too good for Jay (?).
I liked that they're finally have their happy ending, that's what matter, right? Not my Witt's favorite, but somehow, it quite worked for me.
