Troy – Into the Light Book One
Troy grabs his bags and, shoving in as much of his belongings as he can, he clambers out of his bedroom window. He can hear the shouts and arguments starting up and his name being called. Not able to face his parents, Troy runs away.
Leaning against the wall of the club, Troy’s eyes are drawn to the dark-haired man dancing fluidly with another man. Their eyes meet and Troy’s life changes in the blink of an eye. Inexplicably drawn to each other, they meet on the dance floor. Tremors course over Troy’s body as the handsome stranger touches him.
“I’ve been waiting for you. I don’t know how or why, but I know that you are mine.” As he leans in, he whispers in my ear, “I’m Franco; I am the man you’ve been waiting for, too.” Troy’s life alters irrevocably in that instant as he falls for the handsome, Italian man.
As they build their life together Troy and Franco discover true love, a love so deep they can’t be apart.
I hold his head against my body and, no longer able to hold back my emotions or my words, I stutter, “I love you,” into his hair as my lips cover his head with kisses. “I love you also, Troy. I never knew such a feeling was possible.” Franco whispers against my chest as I hold him.
When illness strikes, Troy has to discover a new part of himself as he struggles past the pain. A new, stronger, braver man emerges, taking his life in his own hands.
From reading other reviews it appears this is a long awaited book, for me it was my first by author, so I knew nothing of characters involved. That fact didn't stop me from enjoying Troy and Franco's story.
Troy is a runaway, working hard to make a go of things, he is 18 when he locks eyes with Franco. Now I'm all for instant love in PNR books, but if I'm honest I struggled with these two being inseparable after 24 hours, they were going on instinct, they didn't know each other, they had serious attraction though!
So I had my reservations about there two, but they worked out well, they went together like bacon and eggs and definitely had sizzle. There is a lot of sex in this story, but it's not too much, it just shows the intimacy they share.
The book jumps time in places to get the story over and I warn you it takes a sad (tears in eyes) turn.
This is book 1/2 of Troy's story and I look forward to seeing him meet his other one.
I’m J J Harper or Jess to my friends and family. I have a love for hot steamy love stories and write m/m and m/f romances.
I stumbled into writing after a suggestion from my husband sets some seed sowing in my head and the ideas started to flow. I have found something that I absolutely love doing. I’m a true romantic and always want to see a happy ever after in my books and in life.
I live in the UK in the quiet Lincolnshire countryside along with my husband and my dog, it’s a peaceful existence which balances out all the crazy that goes on in my head. What would the neighbours think of me???
