THIS IS SIMPLY PERFECT FOR THIS BOOK, AND THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE AS A WHOLE! HERE IS MY REVIEW:


            Two by Two (Hiding Behind the Couch Season Six)
                        by: Debbie McGowan; reviewed by: Becky


Published: 31st March, 2015
Length: 250,000 words (820 pages)

Two pregnancies, two babies, two trouble teens. Two psychologists hunting down the leader of a deadly cult.

When Libby takes a stand against her abusive parents, Josh and George readily make her a part of their family. However, it transpires that her parents might have been involved in something altogether more sinister, and The Circle has to draw together to protect both Libby and her friend Adam.

Meanwhile, two unexpected guests seek sanctuary in Shaunna and Andy's new home, but that's only a part of it, and they soon realise something is very wrong. Someone is watching them...

All this and more in Two By Two: Season Six of Hiding Behind The Couch.




Where to start, there is so much going on in this book, but never does it get confusing, or crowded as some books with several different story lines tend to be. Debbie is a master at telling a clean concise story within a story, and this is really, really hard to do!

My heart goes out to Libby, who we met in A Midnight Clear, she is a young woman who has gone through things a teenager should never have to. In this book Libby's world gets shaken up once again, will she ever be able to be truly happy and to live without being afraid that she will be taken away forever from the dads that love her?

Shaunna and Andy move and they have something special to look forward to, but is someone more interested in their lives than they should be? You have all this then you add in the story line of a crazy cult, Libby's parents and what they are really involved in, and so much more. 

I think everyone that is as enraptured with this series as I am has a character they feel really connected to and identify with, mine is Josh. Even though Josh is bi-polar, and sometimes has trouble relating and with his moods, he is such a genuine person, and so strong, this story is a showcase for all that strength, and you will see just what an amazing person this guy is!

I could go on and on about this story, please read it and you will be so glad you did. If you are new to the Hiding Behind the Couch Series, these men and women will grab you and not let go! Thanks Deb, for more of the same brilliance that makes me love you so!

The series to date:
NOW HERE IS AN EXCERPT FROM TWO BY TWO:

1.6: Lonely Cowboy
“Fine! Run away!”
George slammed the gate of the goat pen and stormed across the yard, watching Little Bo duck between the slats of the paddock fence and head straight for the ponies’ feeding trough, even though George had fed the goats not more than half an hour ago. He really couldn’t be bothered with this today, or yesterday, or any other day since Libby went back to her parents. The annoying thing was that he’d mastered the art of extracting himself from the goat enclosure with all of them, including Little Bo, on the inside, but a split-second lapse in concentration was all the little tyrant needed to put Operation Fleeing Pygmy Goat into action. George leaned his arms on the paddock fence, resting a boot on the slat Bo had just cleared, and gazed through hazy eyes as she dodged around the ponies’ hooves, snatching mouthfuls of hay. She was waiting for him to give chase. He wasn’t in the mood to play.
“Is this a private mope, or can anyone join in?”
George jumped. He hadn’t realised he had company. “Hey, Soph. What you doing here?”
“I was on my way to Sean’s and thought I’d drop in and see a good friend of mine.”
“OK?”
“Yeah. He’s about six foot tall, got a kind of sexy cowboy thang going on? Big happy grin, sparkling green eyes? Don’t suppose you’ve seen him around, have you?”
“Can’t say as I have,” George said, attempting a smile. He sighed. “Sorry, Soph. I’m being a miserable bastard.”
She nodded in agreement and leaned her head on his shoulder, blinking up at him. “Yes, you are, but it’s to be expected in the circumstances. And I do understand why you keep it bottled up, but you don’t have to.”
“I don’t want to call you just to moan. It’s not fair.”
“Would I be here now if I thought it wasn’t fair?”
“No. I guess not. I still can’t believe she’s gone, Soph. I mean, why? She was safe. She was away from them. Why go back, when all she had to do was tell someone?”
Sophie shrugged. “Who knows? Perhaps it wasn’t as bad as she made out. Just a bit of teenage rebellion.”
“Do you think so?”
“No,” Sophie confirmed regretfully. “I don’t.”
They both stayed where they were, watching the ponies have their fill and plod back up to the other end of the paddock. It was a chilly day, and they needed to go back to the stables soon
before it got darkbut George was putting it off for as long as he could, just to give him something to do to fill the void.
“I’ve got my wellies in the car,” Sophie said. “I’ll give you a hand.”
“You don’t need to.”
“But I want to.”
George looked at her doubtfully.
“At least I can catch Bo for you.”
“You’ll get filthy.”
“I’ll wash.”
“Soph

“George! Just let me in!”
He stopped protesting, not that she was paying any attention to him, as she was already on her way back to her car for her wellies, and she was absolutely right. He’d been avoiding her, because it hurt to talk about it, to face how helpless and guilty he felt, not just about his powerlessness to help Libby either, but for how it was affecting Josh too. More than that, it made him angry, to the point of losing control. Libby’s parents had almost destroyed her, and it was wrong that they were getting a chance to finish the job. They needed punishing, and he could imagine too well how that might be accomplished.
Sophie arrived in the nick of time to stop the rage swelling, and she and George headed into the paddock, first to apprehend Little Bo, who came straight over
she always did like Sophie more than anyone else, and definitely remembered her.
“Come on, Bo,” Sophie said, walking back across the yard. The little goat trotted along obediently, right up until they reached the pen, at which point she decided she wasn’t done wandering yet and attempted to dodge away. Quick as a flash, Sophie grabbed her around the neck and held on tightly, Bo bleating pathetically at her imminent incarceration. Sophie got her through the gate and hastily closed it.
“I’ll get them inside in a sec,” she said.
George nodded. “Thanks.”
“No problem. What time do you finish today?”
“Six.”
Sophie took her phone out and checked the time: it was just coming up to five.
“I’ll stick around and give you a lift home.”
“It’s another hour yet, Soph.”
“It’s fine. Dylan’s with Sean, and neither of us have got plans for this evening, beyond eating and watching a bit of TV. Unless you want me to go.”
George rolled his eyes. “What do you think?”
Sophie stretched on tiptoes and kissed his cheek. She knew him well enough to accept that he didn’t want to talk about it, and she was happy to offer him a distraction, whilst wishing she could do more.
“Let’s get these guys inside and I’ll tell you all about my boring research.”
“Great,” George said, sounding droll, not that Sophie’s research for her Masters thesis was especially interesting, but it beat being stuck with his own misery, and it was always good to spend time with her. She was so upbeat, refusing to let anything drag her down. She’d been there too, when Libby left with the social worker. She and Sean stayed late into the evening, keeping Josh and George company, intervening when their minds idled on their terrible loss. And they had come back the next day to do it all over again, and the day after, and the day after that, until the sense of bereavement eased enough for them to try and get some semblance of normality back. That was three weeks ago; Libby had been with them for eight life-changing days, and the pain was less intense now, but it hadn’t gone away; it probably never would.
Once the ponies were all safely back in their stables, George checked the heaters were on, whilst Sophie went and put the goats inside. All of the other animals were back in their various shelters for the night, so there was only a bit of swilling down left to do. George hosed and Sophie brushed, clearing the mud from the paths and yard, ready for tomorrow, with George sharing stories about the nightly rituals at the ranch, which didn’t involve swilling down, but did involve a lot of manure shovelling, and a tour of the paddocks to check all was secure
especially tough work at the end of a twelve-hour-long winter’s day, making what they did at Farmer Jake’s something of a vacation by comparison.
It was dark now, the floodlights on the outside of the barns creating a hazy yellow glow, bright enough to blot out the blackness beyond. George locked up and headed across to the farmhouse to return the keys.
“All done, Jake,” he called through.
“Cheers, George,” came the response from inside, along with a waft of heat and the crackle of a real fire.
“See you tomorrow.”
“I thought you were off tomorrow.”
“Am I?”
“Well, it’s Saturday.”
“Oh yeah.” George tutted at himself. He had no idea what day it was anymore. They’d all blurred into one.
Back across the yard and out to Sophie’s car: he stopped to padlock the main gate and glanced up at the sky, exhaling slowly, his breath forming a mist above him. It was the same sky, wherever Libby was now. The same moon; the same stars. Nick, the social worker who took her home, had assured them that Libby’s named social worker was going to be visiting regularly. If anything had happened to her they’d know.
“What were you thinking about?” Sophie asked when he got in the car.
“Same as always.”
They drove home with only the sound of the blowers and the radio. It was Friday night, and the songs were those of clubland, not heart-rending ballads, so there was nothing new to add to George’s misery. Sophie indicated and pulled up in front of Josh’s car.
“Thanks,” George said, reaching over to give her a hug.
“It’ll get better.”
He nodded. “Yeah.”
He got out of the car and hugged her again, watching until she was inside Sean’s house before he went inside himself.
“Mow.”
“Hey, Jinj.” George stepped around the cat and crouched down to give both Jinja and Blue some fuss. “How are you guys?” he asked them.
“Mow,” Jinja replied.
“Oof,” Blue sounded
his gentlest woof, tail swinging low, happy to see his dad.
George peered up at Josh, leaning against the lounge door jamb. “Hi.”
“Hi, yourself. A good day?”
“It was OK. Soph came by, kept me occupied for the last hour. That’s always the worst. How was your day?”
“Not great. I’ve accepted Farrar’s job offer.”
“Why?”
Josh shrugged. “I have to, and I can’t even explain why.”
They’d already discussed Farrar’s proposal and the potential breach of their ‘no secrets, no lies’ pact. Neither was happy about it, but it was a necessary evil in order to get the job done, and if it proved damaging, then Josh would leave Farrar’s team.
“How are you feeling?” Josh asked.
“Sad.”
“Me too.”
George stood up again. “We need to move on.”
“Yes.”
“I don’t mean forget about her.”
“I know.”
“We just need to start living again.”
Josh nodded. “Farrar said he’d help if we need it.”
“That’s something. I just wish we could have
” George closed his eyes. Wishing was all he’d done for weeks, and what was the point?
Josh pulled him close and stroked his head. “She knows we’re here for her, ma moitié.”
“I hope so. I really do.”


OH YES MY FRIENDS, YOU HAVE TO READ THIS ONE! HERE IS A LITTLE BIT ABOUT DEBBIE:

I am an author, publisher and a social scientist. My academic specialism is gender and sexual politics and identity, so you can expect this to crop up now and then in my writing too! Not in an "in your face" kind of way - subtlety wins hearts and minds.

I write character-based/driven fiction - mostly general/contemporary, some (M/M & F/M) romance and a bit of sci-fi fantasy (light). Basically, I write about life. I've written a few stand alone novels and short stories, but my main work is the Hiding Behind The Couch series, which these days I'm referring to as a literary soap opera.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR JOINING ME FOR THIS RELEASE DAY REVIEW, I REALLY HOPE YOU START THIS SERIES IF YOU HAVEN'T, AND IF YOU ARE A FAN, YOU NEED THIS BOOK!

Enter Adam James, a werewolf alpha who just happened to be at the right place at the right time. After a night in the hospital, Ethan wakes to an introduction to his savior, and sparks fly. Adam feels something strong, pulling him towards Ethan in a way he can't describe. The catch, however, is that humanity doesn't know about the existence of supernatural beings, and after an eventual romantic tryst, Adam becomes 100% sure Ethan is his true mate: the mate fate intertwined into his life. With rogue shifters in his pack's periphery and having to be honest to the person who completes him, Adam is distraught.

BOOK 2: IRREVOCABLY INTERTWINED: 



Jayce Barton's life doesn't need any more trouble than it already has: having a poor family and having them somewhat blame you for it was already trouble enough. To top it all off, Jayce gets kidnapped one night and finds himself in an unknown, ritzy apartment. Dmitri Marchetti is the son of one of the strongest vampire coven leaders in New York City. When his coven uncovers new intel on a human-supernatural trafficking ring right in their midst, their coven immediately acts. Jayce and Dmitri meet, and the sparks fly. The easygoing Dmitri finds renewed purpose: something he's never felt before, and he finds it in Jayce. With the threat of a crazed madman looming above Jayce, Dmitri vows to protect the human. But even vampires have their limits - and it will take a lot of love, a lot of trust, and a hastily-put-together plan to save not only the man he was growing to love, but each other. 

First of all, let me say that I want a Dmitri, oh he is my book boyfriend for sure, so well written he springs off the page. The chemistry between he and Jayce is electric, and the love scenes, oh my!! This is a wonderful followup to a perfect book 1!  *5 Stars*

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE COWBOY GANGSTER:



HELLO FRIENDS! I AM SO EXCITED TO BRING YOU THE FIRST LOOK AT  BOOK ONE OF THE COWBOY GANGSTER SERIES, SHOT THROUGH THE HEART! THIS IS A SPIN-OFF OF THE WILDLY POPULAR PHOENIX CLUB SERIES BY CJ BISHOP (A.M. SNEAD) WE HAVE THE COVER, (THIS IS THE AUTHORS RENDITION AND WON'T BE THE ONE ON THE E BOOKS), THE BLURB AND AN EXCERPT! HERE WE GO:




 LORD I LOVE THIS COVER! HOW SEXY IS THAT! HERE IS HOPING SHE CAN USE IT FOR THE PRINT VERSION OF THE BOOK! HERE IS THE BLURB:


THE COWBOY GANGSTER (Bk 1): Shot Through The Heart

TAG LINE:  “I was born with a blood-stained soul.”
BLURB:
Clint “The Cowboy” Maddox is a force to be reckoned with. Enforcer for the Sanitini family, the cowboy has known only violence, pain and death. But for a select few he calls “brothers”, Clint feels no love for mankind and believes that “an eye for an eye” is the only true means of retribution. ‘Let the punishment fit the crime’ is his philosophy when dealing with his enemies. But upon meeting Axel Anders –a frightened and lost young man with a stained soul of his own –Clint’s hard-as-steel exterior begins to crack as he finds himself intrigued by the effect this vulnerable “kid” has on him. Yet when Axel’s presence begins to disturb the ground beneath which Clint’s darkest, most painful memories have lain dormant for over two decades, he begins to understand that the young man poses a greater threat than any flesh and blood enemy –and knows he must put the kid out of his life, or face a resurrected past that he believed to be dead and buried. But walking away from Axel and not looking back –proves to be a much greater challenge than he is prepared for.

OH YEAH, THIS IS GONNA BE A GREAT ONE I PROMISE! EVEN IF YOU AREN'T FAMILIAR WITH THE PHOENIX CLUB SERIES (WHICH YOU SHOULD BE ;p ) YOU CAN START HERE WITH CLINT AND AXEL! HERE IS AN EXCERPT:


EXCERPT:

As the kid slowly turned away from him again, a war broke out inside Clint, his mind and heart battling like ancient warriors. His heart insisted he take Axel in his arms, comfort him, make him understand he was safe with him. His mind countered the course of action, reminding Clint who he was –what he was. And that his presence in Axel’s life would ultimately bring the boy –and himself –to ruin.
You have no business being here…messing with this kid. You got what you wanted –now get the fuck away from him.
Clint twisted his head away from Axel, his gaze turning to the nightstand beside the bed. His eyes rested on the .9 mm lying next to the lamp. The weapon itself was a scream of reality. He stretched out his hand and ran his fingertips over the cool metal of the Beretta, feeling the weight of it even without picking it up. It was a part of him, who he was. An extension of his own hand.
Axel shifted beside him and sniffed, discreetly clearing his throat. Clint looked at him. He hadn’t gotten what he wanted –he still didn’t know why the kid unhinged his mind, knocked his senses off kilter. This boy –abused and broken by life –weak and cowardly by his own admission…remained a mystery to Clint. Had he come upon an abused animal in this state, he would have put it out of its misery –not taken it home and attempted to fix what was broken.
You said you would walk away and not look back once you had him again. So keep to your word and cut him loose.
Sitting forward slowly, Clint looked at the kid again, the faint scar on his back drawing Clint’s stare, holding it. The longer he gazed upon Axel, the more he began to detect remnants of other, less discernable scars reminiscent of the other. How many times had the kid’s dad taken his belt to him?
Because I existed.
He closed his eyes, brow squeezing hard as memories he had thought long dead and buried, tried to claw their way to the surface of his mind. He opened his eyes in hopes of banishing the images, yet they remained –not dead and buried –but merely buried alive as his gaze fell across his own belt, tossed to the floor haphazardly in the heat of passion. The empty, dead eye sockets within the skull buckle stared back at him ominously and he saw again the blood draining through those holes, splattered across the bony face, as the hard buckle struck tender flesh again and again, ripping and tearing…
Clint jerked his eyes from the skull face, unnerved to discover a tremor in his hand as he dragged his palm across his mouth. His unsteady stare turned to Axel once more. Something about the kid disturbed the ground beneath which his memories had been laid to rest. Memories that had no place in his mind anymore, and which only served to weaken and wound.

HEY THERE FRIENDS, I HAVE ANOTHER GREAT ONE FOR YOU TODAY: ETHAN DAY HAS A NEW ONE OUT, 'LOVE ME TOMORROW' IS A TREASURE FOR SURE! JOIN ME FOR MY REVIEW, BUY LINKS, AND A TEASER PIC! LET'S GET STARTED: 




THIS REALLY FITS THIS STORY, HERE IS MY REVIEW: 



                                     Love Me Tomorrow by: Ethan Day
                                                           reviewed by: Becky


Event planner Levi Goode is positioned to inherit the newly vacated throne, becoming the in-demand party planner for Wilde City’s elite. Years of hard work and perseverance are finally paying off as Levi lands his next big fish, working with socialite Julia Freeman-Kingsley. Distracted by work and dealing with his head strong mother, an ex-Vegas-showgirl suffering from debilitating health issues, Levi has his hands full. Time for love or even the occasional one-night stand, is one aspect of life Levi hasn’t been able to master. 

Sparks of interest fly during a chance meeting with a paramedic called to the aid of his mother, and thanks to Ruby’s meddling, Levi finds himself on a movie-date with the handsome Paramedic Jake. Personal and professional worlds collide when Levi realizes his new love interest is actually Jake Freeman, estranged brother to his brand new client. Discovering the man of his dreams already has a boyfriend, leaves Levi stunned realizing any hopes he had for something more with Jake were never going to be anything more than wishful thinking. 

Struggling to downshift his expectations and remain friends with Jake while continuing to work closely with Julia quickly consumes all of his time and attention. Wondering if there will ever be a special someone to love him, is where Levi’s love story begins.




There is so much to love about this book I am finding it hard to find a starting place! I will start with the men, Levi is an event planner thrust into the big time and doing very well, he lands a big account and his life is looking up, his professional life that is, his personal life is another story.

Jake is an EMT and an all around charming guy, he charmed Levi and his mother on a call to her house. Levi and Jake go on a date, well a non-date, and then he finds out who Jake really is and that he is spoken for.

Levi can't help the attraction to Jake, but he can help what he does about it, though it is hard he tries to keep things with Jake friendship, and Jake does the same though anyone can see he feels the same way about Levi. Can the happy ever after Levi dreams of happen with the only man he wants it with?

The cast of characters in this book is lively and fresh, and so well written, Levi's mom is wonderfully quirky, and his employees are sarcastically delightful, and Levi's ex is just a pain in the ass! This is my first foray into the world of an Ethan Day book, but you can bet it won't be my last! Thanks Ethan, for giving us a book that we can enjoy again and again without fail!

                                                    the 5 cinnamon roll rating :P

HAPPY WEEKEND FRIENDS! I HAVE ONE FOR YOU TODAY THAT YOU ARE GONNA LOVE! THIS BOOK, STAY WITH ME, IS THE FIRST OFFERING BY LILY LAMB, AND BOY DOES IT DELIVER: LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT MY REVIEW, BUY LINKS, AND EVEN A TEASER PIC FOR YOU! LET'S GET STARTED:




I LOVE THIS QUOTE FOR SWEET JOSEPH! HERE IS MY REVIEW:



                                                   Stay With Me by: Lily Lamb
                                                                     reviewed by: Becky


It has been weeks since Curtis first saw the young waiter with the haunted eyes. No matter how often he went to the café watching him and to find the right opportunity to introduce himself, that moment simply did not come. Joseph was aware of the gentle giant who quietly came to have his lunch and then left. Fearing his father’s wrath and under his ever watchful eyes, he made no moves nor overtures. Until one day…




There are a lot of things I loved about this book, but the thing that stood out the most to me was the connection I felt as a reader to the characters! This means to me that the author really put her heart into making the characters real and relatable, and we all know how important that is to a great story!

Curtis is a good guy, with a great big heart, and when he notices a waiter on his lunch break one day, he is interested in the waiter, and acting on vibes he gets from the young man, he asks him out for coffee. 

Joseph has not had the easiest life, ruled by his father's iron hand, and though he notices Curtis, he is afraid to do anything about it, but then Joseph can't take it anymore and agrees to a coffee date, that is when things hit the fan so to speak.

Can Joseph get out of the hell he lives in and finally be with Curtis like he longs to? Get this one people you will love it as much as I did! Thanks Lily, for a first book that is so good, you have assured it won't be your last!

WHAT WHO WRITES IS READING WEEK 11: SHARITA LIRA:


WE ARE BACK THIS WEEK WITH WHAT WHO WRITES IS READING WEEK 11, I AM HAPPY TO HAVE SHARITA LIRA HERE THIS WEEK, SHE BRINGS US A SERIES BY SUE BROWN THAT I HAVE YET TO READ, BUT NOW I CAN'T WAIT TO! HERE IS SHARITA'S POST:


It was a tough choice to decide between the series of books I love to read, but my heart wouldn’t let me pick over Sue Brown’s Morning Report. Sue’s Morning Report was one of the first m/m romance novels I absolutely devoured. I say that because when she released this, I’d just started doing m/m myself. After reading so many short stories, slash fiction, and anthologies, I picked her novel up to get a true sense of the m/m genre. Not only did I get that, but I was treated to two characters who will always be my favorite other than my own; Luke and Simon.

I won’t tell much, but Luke and Simon are a lovely cowboy couple living in Texas facing problems such as homophobic neighbors and personal tragedies. To think of what these two men went through to be together is unbelievable and in turn, Ms. Brown’s story gave me the basis of what I wanted to write; people who overcome large odds for love. Reading Morning Report as well as its subsequent books with surrounding characters is by far one of the best series I’ve ever read. Though I’ve been titillated with other books, Morning Report will always be my go to for an awesome romance series.

Sue’s stories will break your heart at times as in The Sky is Dead, the first m/m book to make me cry, but I’ll always be a fan. Now, I read everything of hers religiously and Morning Report is what started it all.

BOOK 1: MORNING REPORT:


Morning Report: Book One

A decade on from their first kiss, Luke Murray is more in love with Simon every day. Running the Lost Cow ranch for Luke’s parents, they keep their heads down and get along with the locals, even if Luke is known for being a hothead. Then one day they discover the local store owners refuse to serve them.

They’re bewildered until Luke’s mom tells them the new pastor has targeted the couple in his sermons. Suddenly Luke and Simon find themselves alienated from people they called friends, and their ranch comes under a series of attacks. As the town’s hatred and homophobia turns on them, Luke and Simon will face a critical choice: give in to the town’s demands and disappear, or stand and fight for themselves and their love.

BOOK 2: COMPLETE FAITH:



Sequel to Morning Report 
Morning Report: Book Two 

For Tommy Bradley, a hand working on the Lost Cow Ranch in rural Texas, admitting his sexuality is impossible, even if his bosses, Luke and Simon, are gay—Tommy has spent his entire life hiding the truth from his homophobic parents. Then Tommy meets pastor Noah Taylor in Luke’s father’s hospital room, and his difficult secret becomes that much harder to keep. 

Noah is unlike any man of God—or any man—Tommy’s ever met. For one thing, his congregation is made up primarily of GLBT individuals and their families. For another, he isn’t afraid of the attraction he feels toward Tommy, and he makes his intentions very clear. But Noah won’t hide his sexuality or his love from the world, and he won’t start a relationship with Tommy while Tommy hides his, either. Faced with the choice of losing Noah or coming out to his parents, Tommy takes his first steps out of the closet. 

But Tommy isn’t the only one facing challenges. Thanks to an outpouring of hatred from Pastor Jackson and a group of ranch owners, Noah must cope with the possible loss of his church and his livelihood.

BOOK 3: PAPA'S BOY:


Sequel to Complete Faith
Morning Report: Book Three

When Ray Sloane tires of the men in his usual club, he finds himself in the Pink Palm, an inauspiciously named spit-and-sawdust dive, not the sort of place an elementary school teacher and pastor’s assistant should be seen in. On the other hand, Ray needs a fresh face. But what he gets is a closeted, desperately unhappy divorcé named Zeke.

Losing his teaching job and his kids has left Zeke bitter and in denial about his sexuality, but Ray is determined to get under his skin. Just as Zeke starts to relax, life interferes with Ray’s plans: Lee, the teenage organist from St. Mark's, tells his parents that he was abused as a teeanger by a prominent congregation member from his old church, and Ray becomes the target of bullies at school and has to worry about his own job. With the specter of what happened to Zeke hanging over him, Ray must protect Lee and his own reputation, all while trying to convince Zeke that he doesn’t need to run away when their relationship grows more intense.
