Want true, heart-throbbing romance? Put down the Cheetos, and stop being a jackass.
The question is, can I do it?
I’ve been an epic dick to my friends, my uncle. Him.
Travis Hunter. Photographer, econ-student, paraplegic. Can I redeem myself? Apologize? Make a fresh start?
Hunter seems to think so. Even roped me into saving his favorite gazebo from the bulldozers.
The confidence of this man amazes me. He’s no bullshit where I’m all bullshit. I throw up walls where he knocks them down.
He’s beautiful, too. Strong arms inked with hummingbirds, a wide teasing mouth, and blue eyes that read me like an open book.
He looks at me, and I look away.
These shivery feelings I have for Hunter? They can’t happen. I don’t deserve him.
Where did I put those Cheetos?


Have you ever tried to read the page of a book through misty eyes?  Not misty because the page is poorly written, but because there’s so much raw emotion that your entire body aches.

Now, imagine that through an entire book.

Yeah, it’s that good.

Marc Jillson is struggling with existing.  Pure and simple He carries guilt over actions he took in the previous school year, his interference in his uncle’s relationship, and with feeling worthy of any kind of redemption.  He questions his own worthiness.

Enter Hunter, who is seemingly the picture of self-assuredness.  He’s paralyzed from the waist down after being attacked with a baseball bat.  Yet he doesn’t allow his paralysis to affect him.  Much.

They join forces to save the college campuses gazebo, which is kind of a Lover’s Lane complete with carved initials.  Ultimately, they find that they may have more in common than originally thought.

More than anything, this is the story of one man taking responsibility for his actions as he walks the road to redemption.  If you think it’s an easy road, think again.  Marc wrestles with demons of his own creation as well as those foisted upon him for others.  It’s a journey well worth taking.  How something can be so emotionally devastating while also being uplifting is beyond me.  But this book is.

I will say that if you haven’t read the first book in this series, “Liam Davis and the Raven”, and plan to, I would read it first.  There’s a huge spoiler for that book in “Marc Jillson and the Gazebo.”  But it works perfectly fine as a stand-alone.

I cannot recommend this book enough.  Seriously!

  1. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy.
