College freshman Erik Fiskare loves the theatre, but he's more intrigued by the wizardry behind the red curtain than the spectacle center stage. That is, until Daisy Bianco steps into the spotlight. The moment Erik lays eyes on this ballerina, his atoms rearrange and the young stagehand will never be the same.
For two years, the romance thrives within a tight-knit circle of artists and friends. Then, a newcomer arrives--James, a brilliant but erratic dancer with a misguided infatuation and a burning desire to belong.
The consequences of an ill-fated love affair set a course for destruction and Erik's world is torn apart. He clings to Daisy, but he soon discovers that in the face of heartache, grief and betrayal, love is not always enough. And sometimes, it's everything.
Suanne Laqueur's award-winning debut novel presents the dark side of devotion and the futility of running from the past. The Man I Love is an emotional journey of love and forgiveness that will linger long after the last page is turned.
