Love Life & Circumstance, By Moon & Cheyanne

**This book contains Male Male Relations**
Born the son of a preacher man, Elijah Deacon always conformed to his father’s strict religious teachings. He worked hard, devoting his time and energy to the family owned construction firm, leaving little time to focus on the deplorable state of his private life. Small town America was no place to be when all a man craved was the touch of another man. Elijah hid his sexuality and tried in vain to convince himself he could be happy with a woman. Urged on by the dream of having the family he craved, Elijah couldn’t know a drunken one night stand would see him pay the ultimate price.

Leaving the bright lights of Atlanta and placing his own life on hold, paralegal, Seth Jacobs, moved to Alabama hopeful that with a baby on the way, his twin sister Bethany would settle down. His older sister by five minutes, she gave him the confidence he needed while growing to come out and be proud of who he was. It was his turn to return the support. On arrival in Headland, Seth endeavored to make her see the dangers her behavior presented to her and her unborn child. But, to no avail.

When destiny deals a cruel blow, and the life of a newborn baby hangs by a thread, Seth and Elijah are flung together to deal with the tragic circumstances. The grief threatens to consume them, while joy and fear work to unite them. Jealousy, love, lies and bitter truths rise to the surface and threaten to tear them apart. Can the powers of love and life bring them together and heal the loneliness that death leaves behind? Or will circumstance prevail and fuel the embers of love that draw them together? 

  First off, I have to say, oh my goodness!! This book was just wow... A heads up to everyone, make sure you have some tissues ready because there were some parts where I was moved to tears. And it takes a lot to move me to tears when it comes to reading a book. But this one did it.

The story itself is one that is full of love and heartache, you can't have one without the other that's for sure. Elijah and Seth's characters were written to an amazing degree, they both had their own personalities and you could tell the difference between the two when it came to where they were raised. Elijah is from the south, and a preachers son, you can tell that just from the way he talks and his actions. Seth is more laid back about everything, you can tell that he comes from an understanding family and has a really good background.

One thing I have to say, and this is so random but it's important to me, is the details that were went into when it comes to the NICU scenes. It wasn't just glossed over, it was very detailed and very realistic. The emotions that Elijah and Seth were going through when they were in the hospital were also very true.

I completely enjoyed reading this book, once I started it I didn't want to put it down because of how moving the story was. This book will bring out emotions that you didn't realize you had with each page that you turn. All in all, this book is a must read for sure if you like this genre. I would recommend it to everyone!
