An actor on possession charges, hell bent on destroying his own life meets a man who quietly works to make the world a better place.
Jacob Riley is a typical Hollywood former child star with issues. He has already done prison time and at the age of twenty-six has been arrested again.
Ethan Myers is the owner and manager of Macs, an education center providing teaching and learning to local low income families. Losing his partner to cancer leaves him lost and alone and he buries himself in his work to start to mend his broken heart.
Sparks fly when Jacob has to complete his community service at Macs. Their relationship grows against a background of disenfranchised street gang members, arson, the Oscars, and despite their prejudices.
Can Jacob Riley be saved?
What a sweet story. I could almost categorize it as fluff, but there is actual dangerous drama that occurs. Yet even with all the obstacles thrown in the characters’ way, I always had faith that there would be a happy ending for everyone. And I was not let down.
Ethan’s grief manifests in panic attacks that are triggered by random things that bring back memories of his ex. It takes him almost the entire length of the book to finally process that grief; even as he’s helping others he can’t quite figure out how to help himself. Jacob starts out as a self-absorbed brat but has a breakthrough when he starts writing down his thoughts and feelings and being honest with himself. It’s not that they have to get each other through these things, more like meeting each other is a catalyst for their own growth. It’s lovely, and positive, and heart warming.
