Product Description

Product Description

You can’t choose who you fall in love with. Despite assuming from a young age that he was gay, Scott Murphy couldn’t imagine life without Shelly. He threw away the label he'd stuck on his sexuality and had eleven amazing years with her, but now, he feels even more lost trying to figure out how to move on after Shelly’s death. After nearly a year of watching Scott fade away, Shelly’s father forces him to start living again.

As much as Chris loathes the idea of attending a bereavement group week after week, it’s one of the only places he can go in this town, other than the bar, to not feel so alone. When there’s nothing to distract him or dull his senses, he spends too much time obsessing over how he should have been able to help his sister. When Scott shows up at his group session, Chris decides that maybe some good can come out of his sister’s death.

There’s no denying that Chris is the first man to catch Scott’s attention in a long time, but how can he move on when just thinking of Shelly sends him to his dark place?

The road to recovery won’t be an easy one, but Chris is determined to help Scott see that life is still worth living. But before Scott can allow himself to admit what he feels for Chris, he knows he has to reveal the full truth about Shelly’s death.

5.0 out of 5 stars The story of my life 11 March 2015
By Richard F. Krechel - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a formerly married gay man who lost his wife to cancer, I could relate totally to this book. I also loved my wife dearly and she was my best friend. Her parents and siblings were my family and accepted me as one of their own it was not an ideally situation, but its worked for us. There was never a lack of love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Godsend ! 5 February 2015
By Marinieves - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a beautiful book ... The story goes beyond death.

Right front the start the narrative is so interesting and emotional ... That the characters and their story is something to want to explore.

Scott and Chris are two men trying to recover from the loss of a love one. They meet at a support group. Scott is intrigued by Chris and his attitude, but he is not ready for what could come between them.

Scott's life and emotional state are still fragile and Chris is afraid to get closer to him because of his profession. But ... life doesn't work that way.

A close encounter changes the dynamic of the relationship and makes them evaluate the possibility of more.

It is really hard sometimes to see Scott suffering but trying , at the same time it is refreshing to see how persistent Chris is when it comes to Scott.

The both of them have to learn how to move forward and have to understand that sometimes you have to accept the help ..

I love the way the families are there accepting the natural progression of the new lives in the middle of the heartbreaking losses.

This is a must read story of death, dreams, acceptance and promises of love.

ARC received from the author in exchange of an honest review.

2.0 out of 5 stars Godsend could have been good but was not. 16 February 2015
By Wende - Published on

As I started to read Godsend I found out that this was a different MM book than I was accustom to. The book opens up as Scott and his wife Shelly prepare for her death. They have a last supper then the next morning she ended her life with dignity. I might have cried but I hated this part. I hate it when authors play with the readers emotions like that. Scott and Shelly were in a relationship for 11 year. I almost snorted because he was a straight for you gay man. I think I could have liked the book even after all this if Scott and Chris were believable as a couple or if Scott was likeable. I found that the secondary characters were more likeable than the main ones.

Godsend is another fantastic m/m romance from Sloan Johnson, and this is my favourite book of hers by far, in any genre she has written.

I gotta tell you, she goes straight for the heart with this one. I was ugly crying and I hadn't even finished reading the prologue! She gets a tight grip around your heart and there is no letting up until you read the final words.

There are some heartbreaking situations in Godsend, and Ms Johnson has handled them sensitively and poignantly. Though situations I hope none of us ever has to go through, the way they are written draw me right into the heart of the story. If you are not reaching for the tissues in the first 5 minutes, you are so much stronger than me!

Scott and Chris's story is more than just a love story. It is a story of loss, grief, sorrow. It is a story about moving forward, rebuilding lives, and finding love again.

The way Scott and Chris interact is beautiful. So touching, but so strong. They are what each other thinks they don't need. I loved that Chris does not give up on Scott, that they both - eventually - fight for each other.

Ms Johnson does not shy away from the hard subjects in her writing. And I love her for it! While the subject matter of Godsend may be a difficult one to read, she does it with sympathy. I adore her writing style, get drawn into each and every story.

I think Ms Johnson has found her niche with m/m romance with an edge.

I can't wait to see what she brings us next.
