Benny DeMarco is the nicest guy you’ll ever meet. He works
hard, takes care of his little sister, and pays the bills. Childhood bullies
and an abusive stepfather invade his dreams, and at times he wishes life would
grant him a do-over. Would he like a boyfriend? You bet. But Benny knows love
isn’t for him. He’s been looked over, looked through, and looked past all his
life. Even worse, the one guy he’s been in love with for almost two years is
the biggest flirt who will sleep with anyone. Anyone except Benny.
Gino Acosta smiles to keep from crying. Everyone he meets tells him he’s
beautiful and sexy, but Gino knows the truth. His outside may be perfect, but
inside he feels dirty and unworthy. Bounced around as a child, he yearns for
someone to love and a family to call his own. He hops from man to man,
desperate to belong, believing the lies he’s told, but all he finds is a body
for an hour or two. Things would be so different if only he knew—the man he’s
searching for is waiting for him, right under his nose.
Benny starts dating the “perfect guy”and it’s okay if there’s no spark—that’ll
happen eventually. Won’t it? Gino’s fast-paced modeling career has taken off,
but once again, he’s trading his body for a dream. When Gino’s world explodes,
Benny must fight for what and who he really wants. Gino must learn to trust
what people tell him—that he’s got so much more to offer than a pretty face and
a moment of pleasure.
If all your life you believe you’re nothing, how do you move past heartbreak
and hardship to reach for everything?

Kara's Review

4.5 out of 5 stars

Imitation of Life is the second book in the Rock Bottom series by the talented Felice Stevens. I’m loving this series about these men who have been through hell and have risen up and survived. We met Benny in Broken Silence. He’s Justin’s best friend and he’s such a good guy! He’s worked hard his whole life and now he has a new job and a plan to move him and his sister to a new and better home. He’s been in love with Gino for a long time, but Gino doesn’t see him. Or so he thought. Gino grew up with no family and didn’t have it easy. He thinks the only way to get someone to like him is to use sex. Benny knows Gino sleeps around, but he still cares about him.  After Gino’s world falls apart, Benny is there to pick him up. Benny and Gino’s story isn’t easy. But they are both survivors and they save each other with their love and affection. I love Benny’s sister, Chloe! She’s smart and adorable! This love story was hard to read at time. What they went through was maddening and sad! Felice wrote it with grace, compassion and love. I’m looking forward to more in the series!

My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
