Book of the Week: Confessions of A Wild Heart by Kade Boehme


US Army PFC Jase Emery, on leave in Germany, sees Ase Ramirez for the first time with a camera to his face. Ase’s wild child ways provide a welcome distraction for Jase. But their weekend of fun ends abruptly when Ase’s conservative family catches them. Through email, Ase and Jase are able to keep the link open. But that too comes to an end.

Jase was never able to live up to his parent’s expectations like his brother was. He didn’t stay and work the family ranch, or marry. He saw the world. His return from serving in the Army changed nothing, he wanted to be free to live his own life. But the death of his father and his mother’s failing health force him to come home and live a life in the closet as a local Sheriff Deputy so he can take care of his family… Until Ase makes a surprising return.

After his family caught Ase and Jase together, Ase worked hard at getting the heat off himself. His occasional thoughts of Jase and their amazing weekend dwindle as life and family take the forefront.

When Ase and Jase come face to face again, it isn’t easy. Insecurities, and a hurt that have only grown with time make it hard to see the future.Can their friendship blossom into something more? With Ase’s wild side reappearing from the shadows and major trust issues, can he and Jase, with huge obstacles of his own, learn to forgive, move on, and find a peace they both so desperately want… together?

I read a lot of books. I’ve read a lot of Kade Boehme’s books. This one has to be one of his best. Ase is layers upon layers. The depth Kade gives this character is breathtaking. Jase and Ase are not Prince Charmings and this story isn’t a typical fairytale. It’s gritty, heartbreaking, consuming, and profound.
This world is bigger than we give it credit for. There are things that happen out there, in the dark that we don’t realize. Jase and Ase are both on a journey. There’s shady times, there’s bright times, and there is life changing times. What happens when you meet someone who is meant for you but getting to that happily ever after feels almost impossible? Jase can’t fight Ase’s demons when his own are trying to drag him down.
I adore how Kade is so spot on with every emotion and situation. The flow for Confessions of a Wild Heart is flawless.
I sat in the middle of my bed, wine, used tissues, and a lot of cursing. Ice cream was my balm LOL. I love being that affected by a book. I love crying with the characters, living, loving, breaking. It takes one hell of an author to pull out these feelings and come full circle.
I just don’t feel this review does this book justice. I want it to so badly. You really need to experience it. I mean that, experience it. It’s so much more than just a story.
