Ferryman (Gay Lust) - Sommer Marsden I found this book to be a breath of fresh air. It has a darkness that is absolutely delicious. I kept getting little rushes when one of the guys would make another step towards emotional wholeness. This could have ended up a really sappy read; instead it had just enough angst to keep me interested without feeling like I’d fallen into a Lifetime movie.

Marsden is a mistress of the novella format. This story definitely has a beginning, middle, and ending. The characters are realistic and the dialogue is top notch. Loved the way each man was a catalyst for the other, without taking over and setting up a codependent duo. Each had issues that they had to deal with and I think she revealed their flaws and strengths brilliantly. A very satisfying read, which I wholeheartedly recommend.
