Title: Andrew's Prayer Author Name & Publisher: Ashavan Doyon (Torquere Press) Publication Date & Length: June 15, 2015 - 267 pgs
For Andrew Tuttleman, sex is a means to an end. With a mother too sick to pay the bills on her own and college bills to pay, Drew has spent years resorting to sex with strangers to keep a roof over his mother's head and keep himself at school, far away from the hell where he grew up. This summer, his usual tricks are still paying the bills. But there's a new one, Grant, who never got the memo that a trick is a no-strings deal. Convinced that Drew is the answer to a hopeless prayer, Grant seems ready to pursue Drew to the ends of the earth.
Drew, on the other hand, isn't so convinced. Grant comes with trouble in the form of a wife and three kids, not to mention a single and unwavering requirement: that Drew give up his livelihood. Grant's kiss makes Drew ache for more, a romance that he never dreamed possible. He finds himself unexpectedly willing to try. Can Drew weather Grant's angry father, wife, and a daughter determined to kick him in the shins so hard that he'll leave Grant's life forever? It all relies on Grant's faith in an impossible prayer.
First, I can't believe his own mother called him a sissy boy. I was saddened by that... greatly.I felt like this was more of a romance story than I expected.I loved Drew. He did what he had to in order to survive. Grant was more on the line for me. I felt for him but I hated him at times too.While some of the sex scenes were super hot, they faded to nothingness or simply stopped and it left me sad that we didn't get more.In the end, I liked the book, but I don't care for insta-love and felt like the pacing was off at times.Renee
