SUSAN: BOOK REVIEW "Full Circle" by Kaje Harper

It may be better to have loved and lost, twice, than never loved at all, but it sure as hell gets lonely. Jamison Severs is sitting in a bar contemplating his past as a failed lover, failed doctor, failed drunkard, and a fading old man, trying to find a reason not to lift that glass. Then a beautiful blond boy walks in the door, bringing reminders of Jamie’s past with him. Meeting the son of Jamie’s former lover, Toller, brings back the good old days, and the bad. And maybe it’s finally time for Jamie to come to terms with all the things that brought him and Toller together, and the things that broke them apart.

WOW. I didn’t have this one on my radar. What a pleasant surprise! 

Full Circle is a poignant, beautiful story…a story about hurt, loss, healing…and mostly, about love. 

Jamie was a broken man rescued from his own grief and self-destruction by a young Toller who he saves off the streets, battling his own demons and abuse. They grow to care about each other and both start on the road to healing. 23 years later, we get to hear their tale… 

An amazing story told in <100 pages. Tears shed…this will stick with me for some time, I'm certain.

Not your traditional HEA, but one it's own way...

In a Nutshell:
Kaje Harper rocks my world. But this one is even more special than I could have imagined.

Note From the Author About This Book:
"I thought it might be helpful to prospective readers for me to put a note out here saying that this is not really a romance short in the classic sense. There is romance here and sex and pain and love and even a happy ending. But this is not a story about two men who find each other forever. If you need a HEA, don't read this one. If you like a bittersweet story about the different ways love can work itself out, then give Full Circle a try." - Kaje Harper, Goodreads
