Product Description

Product Description

Long before he was a successful songwriter and black-belt badass, Blue was a survivor.

He escaped a program designed to cure him. Instead, it left him near death with nothing to rely on but the kindness of a stranger. Hostile and headstrong, Blue needs a calmer influence to balance his fury. Someone to save him from himself.

Brady’s life was quiet and orderly until fate sent him a blue-eyed hurricane. Bursts of temper and flashes of despair batter his efforts to quiet the storm in a man he doubts he could tame. One drowning in the wreckage of his past.

With a head full of lies and a body full of scars, Blue works to rebuild his life with the help of a man determined to prove sometimes trust is worth the risk.

Blue features one of the most popular characters from the Saving Liam saga! Destined for greatness, he reveals the past that made him the scarred bad boy readers love.

I have read the Saving Liam series which this spins off from, but I suffer from such terrible bookzheimer's and read so many books, I don't remember Blue from them.

But you don't need to have read that series to read Blue.

Blue is just... wow! It is emotional read, as Blue comes to terms with the horrible things that have happened to him to bring him into Brady's world.

Brady is a saint, there is no other word for it! The things he does for a young man he doesn't know is heartwarming, and I would want to hope that I would do even a part of what he does.

Theirs is an unusual relationship at the start, but there is a connection between them that cannot be denied.

My heart broke over and over for Blue as he forged his way through life - a life that has not been easy for him at all - but there was so much hope for him that I couldn't help but smile.

Blue touches on some darker, edgier subject then I thought it would, and I loved the way they were dealt with by the author.

Now, on to read the next book, Rhythm and Blue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Compelling, Moving Read. Loved Blue and Brady. 25 September 2015
By Sinfully - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 STARS
I'm so glad DP decided to give Blue and Brady a spin off book. A couple of interesting, intriguing characters I really took to, and wanted more of when they became an integral couple in her poignant Saving Liam series. Blue in particular because the snippets we got of his disturbing past history, suggested yet another harrowing back story.

Like Liam and Justin's story, this highlights the heartbreaking plight of homeless LGBTQ teens rejected and turned onto the streets by a*****e parents, because of their sexuality; only to be then targeted by unscrupulous predators or unconscionable, so called religious groups, whose idea of 'saving' these already confused, emotionally browbeaten boys is to beat, torture or brainwash the gay away!

After escaping one of those godawful conversion therapy camps— badly beaten, physically branded and frozen to the point of almost being half dead— a fortuitous twist of fate leads Blue to the much older, established business man who becomes his saviour. Drawn to this damaged boy with no recollection of who he is or what has happened to him at this point; Brady ends up taking him into his home and with the help of Mary, his kind hearted nurturing housekeeper begins the long at times arduous journey of mentally and physically healing the young man, who because of his striking eye colour, he names "Blue".

It’s a special person who without thought or condemnation takes on such a momentous task and it soon becomes clear just how bighearted and caring Brady is. His well off financial status means he can afford to get the sort of medical help Blue needs and supply him with the materialistic things that could help aid the process. Things that as he slowly begins to heal start to give him a sense of purpose again and a reason to want to get through the emotional anguish, but it's Brady’s unselfishness, uncomplicated sympathy and unwavering patience with the skittish, unstable younger man that really shines through. Like Justin is to Liam, in the series that spawned this offshoot love story, Brady becomes Blue's rock. His safe place. Although being so damaged he doesn't always see that, so there are a few rocky moments between them.

And again DP Denman takes her two protags on a slow burn romantic journey. There's no insta love. No overt flirting. No jumping into bed within days of meeting...for a long time Blue is far too damaged to even let Brady touch him in a non sexual way...but there is a tentative attraction simmering gently in the background, growing slowly over the two year span of the book, and it's only after a lot of therapy, intense patience and the power of unconditional love that the situation feels right enough for Blue and Brady to contemplate taking their relationship to a more sexual level. When sex does finally enter the equation it's hot and sensual but also tastefully choreographed and appropriately placed in the progression of their realistically paced relationship.

Kudos to Ms Denman for pairing a man on the cusp of forty with a late teen/early twenties guy, who has so many issues and sexual hang ups you cant ever imagine him fully getting past them. Handling it so beautifully and sensitively that said age difference didn't even appear as a blip on my radar...and that's from a reader who isn't a lover of May to December based romances.

I have to say calm, centred but still passionate Brady was absolutely perfect for conflicted, dysfunctional Blue. All I saw was a touching love story unfolding between two men who despite their obvious differences, were quite simply meant to be together and it was lovely witnessing Blue find his safe haven with the lovely man who let him get there in his own way.

Out of all the books I've read by DP Denman, Blue is now my favourite. I thought it was beautifully written, moving and shouts loudly that this is an author who cares deeply about the subject matter and characters she writes about...and she made me care too.

Personally, I'd liked to have been taken even further into the darker side of Blue's past before he found Brady. It's addressed but as this is more about his healing, the horror is not made any less, but it is slightly muted because of being told in retrospect rather than experienced.

I love having my emotional reactions pushed to their limits so if I'd 'lived' Blue's time at the hands of the men who broke him, this book could have had me sobbing at those moments. As it was I didn't actually cry but I was deeply moved. I think had I been ‘shown’ more it would have made top stars but it's still a very strong, compelling read and I loved being a part of Blue and Brady's path to love. Recommend this highly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unique yet most assuredly not everyone's cup of tea. 4 October 2015
By Carly (Carly's Book Reviews) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Blue's story is full of extremes. His youth and unfortunate past vs. Brady's maturity and settled lifestyle.

Blue is confused, conflicted, and prone to dramatic mood swings. Brady is the only constant in Blue's life, but he stubbornly refuses to admit, even to himself, how desperately he needs Brady to tether him to reality.

Brady is almost too good to be true. He's drawn to Blue like a moth to a flame. His oblivious lifestyle is rocked off its axis when Blue quite literally stumbles into his life. Something inside him desperately craves change, and as messed up as Blue is, his delicately balanced personality calls to Brady. His protective instincts are awakened but he continues to hold himself back, only stepping forward when the man he's fixated upon desperately needs him.

Painting a pretty accurate picture of how naturally flawed human nature is, Denman's writing is unquestionably impacting, even though I was never able to decide if Blue and Brady's coming together betters them or enables their notably stunted emotional expression.

It's a difficult to piece together, defies any attempts to push it into any of the standard boxes we all tend to use to categorize fictional storytelling. I didn't feel the satisfaction I typical experience when a book reaches its ending but I'm glad I took the time to read it and I appreciated the author's creative expression.

3.0 out of 5 stars This book was just not for me... 26 September 2015
By kara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
So I will be honest and say I was not a huge fan of this book...Let me tell you why.
Although I felt so bad for Blue, with the camp his parents sent him too and what had happened to him there. He came across as so spoiled most of the time, like he expected Brady to just pay for everything. I know he went through some bad things but the way he acted turned me off this whole book.
Brady took Blue in when he ends up falling over in Brady's backyard after escaping camp. So you would think he would seem grateful for everything Brady was doing for him but he did not come across that way at all. The two of them together I just did not feel at all...
There is a little angst in this book and you spend most of the book reading about Blue recovering. There were good parts to this book, but Blue's whole attitude and the way he treated Brady turned me off this book.
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review from Inked Rainbow Reads

3.0 out of 5 stars I did not read the prior book Saving Liam where he is introduced so I kinda went into her a little blind with the character but 6 October 2015
By Jackie's Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
3.5 Stars

First off let me start by saying that this is the first time I was introduced to Blue. I did not read the prior book Saving Liam where he is introduced so I kinda went into her a little blind with the character but you can catch up pretty quick with the storyline.

I have to say at times I was sad while reading this book because it deals with a dark past along with PTSD which is a serious mental issue that so many people deal with on a daily basis. With that being said the story is about Blue coming to grips dealing with a bad past of unexceptance with this family and other issues.

That is until Brady comes into his life. Meeting someone who is the opposite of yourself is exactly how these two come together. Brady is older and more established. It will take all that Brady has to make Blue understand that he is worth so much and more than he could every image about himself.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's okay to be gay. You are born that way.. you just can't decide to turn it off.. or just BE straight whenever you wish. 3 May 2016
By Gothguy25 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
i loved it......... loved that the author never got weighed down with the camp... nor confronting them nor Blue's parents.......... but just stayed with Blue and his love... and his support group of friends.. Just saw the world from his eyes... and he then developed how to survive.... and live... beyond all he left behind.. for his old life, name, and existence WAS all behind him. and everything he had was in the now, and the future.... once he finally figured out how to accept it, and himself. Forget all the people.. even his parents.. that just didn't get... it's okay to be gay.. and you are born that way.. you just can't decide to turn it off.. or just BE straight whenever you wish. It had a great message, and it was never too heavy. It also seemed fresh, and modern, and topical.
