Deeply closeted and lonely, Justin spirals into a depression when he has no one to turn to. When compassionate and sexy Lucas enters the picture, he changes Justin into a confident and happy young gay man. But tragedy strikes when Lucas gets involved in the gay rights movement and attracts homophobic bigots. Can Justin protect his true love? Or will they be torn apart forever?
Set amid the gay marriage movement, Rainbows All Around Us is an uplifting and inspirational gay love story about the difficulties of being both gay and masculine in the modern world, the importance of being yourself, and most importantly, the power of love to change your world.
Please note that this story contains explicit sexual content and language not appropriate for readers under 18. Reader discretion is advised.
Rainbows All Around Us was a sweet sweet read. Justin and Lucas are perfectly paired and through their individual strengths and weaknesses a beautiful tale of love unfolds and builds to an emotional climax. Wiping the tears from my eyes, I discovered the story continued with what I considered a ramble of explanations that was not needed. The additional closing passage and epilogue were a disappointment after the story peaked so beautifully. It’s nice to have all the loose ends tied up in a bow, but sometimes not every detail needs to be explained. Leave a little to the readers imagination.
Do I recommend this book? ABSOLUTELY YES!
