Review: Taking Chances by John Goode

Taking Chances - John  Goode

Okay, I’m making an official announcement…. John Goode, I’m going to hunt down your wall finding out what more you have written!!! Every book I’ve read of yours…. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster.. And I loved it..

”Hope is life”
”Hope is everything, even if you don’t believe it, because it believes in you”

Although already knowing what was going to happen in this book. I found it fascinating to read about the journey Tyler and Matt made in their life to find the courage to be together. It all started with this:

 

Tyler 

 

”He was leaning up against the door …. He had taken his shoes off and for some reason, seeing him barefoot was akin in my mind to catching him nude. He was so undeniably beautiful that the image was burned into my mind for the rest of my life.”

Matt

 

 

”It wasn’t an explosion or a burst of fireworks; it was something slower and far more powerful. As we sat there waiting for the parking lot to empty, I could feel the continental plates that made up my life begin to shift under me. And it hit me….
This was the moment my life truly began. This was the day I stopped running from being happy and just let it happen. And for the first time in my life, that wasn’t a bad thing.”

I’m so looking forward to Robbie’s story! And we got Kyle again!!

 

Yay… I LOVED the Postscript!!! ❤❤❤❤❤

 

”Gay men are a lot like people who have been starved for most of their lives, forced to watch other people eat whenever they want.”

Obviously not being gay, I never really fully understood it; going through life and loving another person. We straight people are so accustomed to the concept “falling in love”. Boy meets Girl and Boem! Gay love, I understand now is so much harder!!
