Between the Secrets is the second book written by S. Ferguson and it’s her first M/M. I love the genre so I was excited that she was taking it on so quickly into her writing career. If you read Something There in Between then you have already met Jake and Greg. Jake is Declan’s brother and Greg is Jake’s best friend/roommate/co-muscle in Ron’s organization.
Jake’s past is full of nightmares, shame, and guilt. He hides his true self behind booze, random hook-ups with women, and taking out his anger with his fists. It’s part of the job and he is one of the best. He helps Ron keep the shit off the streets. For the last six years he has had one person on his side. Always there to drive him home after drinking too hard. Always there by his side kicking ass and taking names. But what he doesn’t realize until an eventful night in the kitchen is that Greg might be more than just a best friend. If only he could let him in.
Greg has never shown his true feelings towards Jake. He doesn’t even know if Jake realizes that he is gay. He is far in the closet but he also does does the whole “hook-up” thing. Then one night changes everything. He doesn’t know if it will ruin the friendship that they have or make it a hell of a lot more interesting. But what he does know is that he wants to be there for Jake while he works through his shit from his past. He doesn’t know much about it but he hears Jake’s moans and feels his pain while he is having a nightmare. Will Jake let his past ruin what they could have in the future before it even starts?
I thought this was a great story! It wasn’t just about sexy times and figuring out what is going on between them but about past demons and present dangers. There is so suspense tied into the story and that hooked me in even more. And the characters are very likable. They are a serious group but they do have a humorous side as well. And I can’t forget about the hot side either. Yum!!
Overall…it’s a great story. It does deal with some very serious and hard issues. I am giving it four stars because even though I felt their connection I think it could have gone deeper. I want more of them.
It’s pure torture to be so close to the person you want most in life but can never have.
God knows I’m so far in the closet I should have found Narnia by now.
