A Taste of Love is a book by Andrew Grey and part of the Of…
When I read the blurb for this book I knew what I was getting myself into. Stories about abuse and rape are always hard, but the graphic description in this story makes it even harder. So if you want to read this story, know what you are reading. It might not be easy…
John Burrows thought he had the perfect life. A wonderful husband, a dream career and all the friends and fans he could ever want. But that perfect life turned out to be a massive lie. When his husband turns out to be very jealous and even starts to abuse him, John doesn’t know what to do. Society thinks it doesn’t exist, a man would never allow himself to be treated that way. And still it does happen…. Until one night it turns really bad and John is left for dead.
Ben Tensley is a passionate doctor and has a wonderful career. But he has never found a man to love for ever and he is sure he never will. Until that night when his friend calls him and takes him to take care of John Burrows. Is it wrong to find love on the most traumatic night of someones life? And then watching the man you love so much trying to heal in the middle of chaos.
Ben and John are fighting very hard to find solid ground, but the odds are stacked against them. They love each other so much, but they need to find a way to make it work or they will be separated forever. Can they fight for what they both want and need?
Rachel Sparks is herself a survivor of domestic abuse, so she is qualified to speak about this subject. And in this book she does so very nice. The subject of male abuse is even harder to talk about, since society still doesn’t accept it as a real thing. Abuse is always bad and shouldn’t happen to anyone, but not all forms get the same attention. If you or anyone you know is in a situation like this, please get help in any way you can and get out of the situation. No one has the right to mistreat you in any way and you are certainly worthy of more.
Rachel Sparks has officially retired from writing and all of her books are currently out of print. She has no personal website as far as I can tell.
