I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

A gripping crime story with a touch of m/m

Billy's Bones - Jamie Fessenden

An unusual love story and a decades old crime story make for a gripping and partly chilling read.

 

The main characters are very different and their relationship has an unique dynamic.

 

Kevin is a heartbreaking protagonist - unable to remember the horrible events in his childhood that still impair his sex life. 

Tom, who met him first in a professional manner, as a therapist, after Kevin tried to commit suicide - the reason why I deducted half a star, this is one of my major pet peeves.

His longing for Kevin and his infatuation make for the romantic part. 

This is no sweet love story and no m/m romance.

 

It is a crime mystery at the core - and a great one. The relationship between Kevin and Tom is interwoven with this.

 

It is very well written and made for a fascinating read, recommended - though not for someone sensitive of rape/childabuse.
