BLOG STOP - FREEING By E.K. Blair

 

Synopsis: 


Knowing who you are and accepting who you are come at different prices.

Jase Kinrick grew up in your typical, all-American household. But after the death of his sister, his parents shut down, forcing him to deal with everything life throws his way alone. Terrified of the person he’s discovering himself to be, Jase has his way with every willing girl to try and rid himself of what he fears he is—gay.

Escaping California and moving to Seattle to attend the University of Washington, Jase frees himself to the reality that he likes men. Never staying with any guy long enough to get to know them, he doesn’t realize that he’s still hiding from who he is until he meets Mark. Scared of having real feelings for another guy stirs up the questions and fears he’s fought hard to bury.

To strip away the barriers to the heart of what is real, and to be okay with what lies underneath, will be Jase’s moment of truth. But he’ll need Mark to lead him there.

EXCERPT:

 


 

 
“So, what’s her story?” he asks, as I line up my next shot.
Being cautious and territorial, I leave it at, “No story.” Distracted, I miss my shot and watch Ryan as he walks around the table. I wanna know where his head is at and what he’s thinking when it comes to Candace. I’m not nervous about him as a person; he’s a good guy. I’m nervous about what his intentions might be.
He continues and asks, “You’ve known her a long time?”
He’s obviously interested, so I just come right out and let him know, “She’s not like that, man. Not even close.”
Leaning over the table about to take his shot, he peers up at me, and I tell him, “She’s like a sister to me.”
Ryan takes his shot, knocking his ball into the corner pocket. He doesn’t ask any more questions, and I’m relieved. I like Ryan, but he’s older and used to getting what he wants out of women, at least from what I’ve heard, so I wonder if he is looking for something quick and easy with Candace. I hate having the feeling that I would need to protect her from a guy who has become a pretty good friend.


 



 


In Fading we heard Candace's story about a bad period in her life. Fading is Jase's story. Jase is Candace's best friend, and she can share everything with him. Jase is her rock. We find out what Jase was feeling, how he helped Candace through a tough time and also how he dealt with his own hardships.

I loved this book! It was completely different to many of the other books I have read. I loved that even though we were reading from Jace's P.O.V about a same sex relationship, the author makes us connect with the character just as much as if we were reading it from a girls P.O.V. This book showed us how Jase dealt with his insecurities about his sexuality, and also how he had issues with his parents as a consequence. 

I'm not going to say too much more, as i don't want to spoil anything for everyone, but i am going to end with the fact that each of you should buy it ASAP! 

It is a great read!
