Where You Hurt The Most

Where You Hurt the Most - Twitter

Adrian is more than happy as a high-class escort for a number of regular clients. When his boss and dear friend asks him to entertain his nephew, Adrian readily agrees, but meeting Dan challenges him in ways he’d never imagined. Dan is scarred inside and out from an accident that destroyed a promising future. Despite Adrian’s loveless lifestyle and Dan’s withdrawal and anger, the two men forge a deep - if unnerving - connection. Soon they find themselves questioning the choices they’ve made and the futures they’ve mapped out for themselves.

Yet even bright young men like Adrian and Dan fear the unknown and take comfort in the familiar. Neither may be strong enough to step away from the life they know and towards the one they dare not hope for. But while it’s true that love can’t heal all wounds, it is the surest balm for where you hurt the most.

“This beautifully written story is unique for a story about an escort, with little sex and a premise that is wholly original. Two men, one with hidden hurts and another with obvious ones, meeting in an unlikely setting … I always find Brooke’s stories to be thoughtful and intelligent, and this story was no exception, so I definitely recommend it to everyone.” (From a review at Brief Encounter Reviews)

“I really liked this story and it was beautifully done … things never felt rushed to me. The men each take a considerable time to reflect on what they want before pursuing the relationship, rather than jumping in right away after one night together. I could really believe in them and the connection they had made. There is a lot packed into this story and I really liked the quiet intensity and sweet romance. I would certainly recommend it.” (From a 4.5 star review at Joyfully Jay Reviews)
