N are haunted by who they are Joe Peterson is haunted by all three His parents' return from their mission combined with a family reunion forces Joe's kin to deal with his new life out of the Mormon Church out of I love this series but this one was hard to read for several reasonsThe case has a serious ick factorJoe s parents bring the pain in a couple of different waysJoe spends a large chunk of time angsting over a scary and unintended conseuence of his and Kabe s SM play and the fact that Kabe brushes it off as unimportant leaves him in his head alone in a bad place And since we spend a lot of time in Joe s head this combines for an unpleasant stretch of reading This was the only book in the series that I had to take breaks from reading just because I needed a breather from the tensionOh and also THE RANDOM COMMAS I have no idea if the first two books were this bad and I somehow missed it but from this point forward the proofing is a bit rough It s mostly just that commas are dropped all willy nilly into sentences but there s a fair bit of typos as wellAnd yet after my lowest rated book of the series I mostly just want to talk about how much I love this character The author has such a firm handle on who Joe is that Joe can be completely flailing about as he tries to figure this out for himself while still remaining so consistently Joe His core self is just so solidly rooted he really can t go off track very far I also love that this series that very frankly discusses the flaws of this churchreligion and how it can and has been warped and corrupted also shows the lovely flipside of someone who truly embodies the good intentions behind these same teachings

Joe and Kabe must lay the ghosts of the past and bring closure to a family scarred by loss to move forward in their life togetherSome families are haunted by tragedy Some people are haunted by their pasts Some me 35 stars I loved to spend time with Joe and Kabe and enjoyed their continued relationship progress in this instalment The two men are now living together but Joe is still very new to that status It still amazes me how real the guys and their interactions feel Slightly less enjoyable was the murder mystery story but only because it was too sad and blue for me Technically nothing wrong with it just tough to spend reading time with those emotions That section could have benefitted from being shorter as the middle of the book dragged a tiny bit But most of the other bits I liked the chemistry and dynamic between the guys the family slowly accepting them as a couple how Joe s everyday life changes in increments as his relationship with Kabe evolves Lovely to read and I will certainly read the next book in the series soon
