Switched Kindle Edition
Then a letter from Eastport Children’s Hospital changes everything. A discovery is made, one of gross human error. Twenty-six years ago two baby boys were switched at birth and sent home with the wrong families.
Sam, Israel’s best friend, has been his only source of love and support. With Sam beside him every step of the way, Israel decides to meet his birth mother and her son, the man who lived the life Israel should have.
Israel and Sam become closer than ever, amidst the tumultuous emotions of meeting his birth family, and Sam finds himself questioning his feelings toward his best friend. As Israel embraces new possibilities, he needs to dissect his painful relationship with his parents in order to salvage what’s left.
Because sometimes it takes proof you’re not actually family to become one.

Understandably, Israel has a hell of a lot of questions he now wants answered: about himself, about his birth family, about his parents and why they have treated him coldly his entire life.
Through all the emotional upheaval in his life, the one thing Israel can unequivocally count on is his best friend, Sam. Sam is Israel’s rock; he’s loyal and loving, and completely uncompromising in his resolve to support Israel at every single turn.
Amidst all the emotional encounters Israel faces with his parents and meeting his newly discovered birth family, he and Sam grow closer than ever, and the lines of friendship begin to blur.
This story is one of great emotional depth and is full of poignant moments of self-discovery and love (so much love!). The drama and angst surrounding Israel’s discovery of his birth family, and subsequently all the heated exchanges that transpire between him and his family (particularly his father), were raw and emotional, leaving me quite wrung out by the end (like only a great book can).
The cast of characters are absolutely fantastic and need mentioning! Every single character is deliciously fleshed out, complex and real. I absolutely adored Israel and Sam. The depth of their friendship was clear as day, and their developing feelings unfolded at the perfect pace, without overshadowing Israel’s familial drama.
Ultimately, this is another stellar read by the always fabulous N.R. Walker. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
This book sees Israel, who has never felt loved or accepted by his parents, discover that he was actually switched at birth. Struggling with how this makes him feel, he agrees to meet his biological family including the boy/man he was switched with. At his side is his life long best friend, Sam. As things get messy and Iz starts to break down, Sam is there for him. When Iz pushes Sam away to try and stand on his own 2 feet without being what he sees as co-dependent on Sam, he realises that he feels more for his best friend. For this book, the romance side of things was secondary to what Israel was going through, although it definitely enriched the storyline.
The characters were all beautifully developed and realistic. The struggle that Iz went through was heartbreaking and I will admit I had a few teary moments as I read. I loved that he realised he wasn't coping and sought help, that it wasn't an instant fix and that it was hard and emotional work for him. That realism is what I love most about this author's works.
This is one of those books that will stay with you and make you think. Definitely a book I would recommend. I look forward to reading more from this author, and would recommend any of her works.
This book so Is and Nick are switched at birth. I am not going to give away the love side but to say it was steamy, great smiles and so well put together.
On the other hand the story of his birth mother new family, and his relationship with his parents the ones he grew up with, was well amazing the growth and the assumptions we make about our parents.
So YES it is another great book by N.r. Walker and you can’t go past her books.
Will read it again and again!
Fantastic - good on ya, NR Walker.

But the highlight of his life, his best friend Sam, who made him realise he was loved by lots of other people and by Sam himself. To me, it was pretty obvious that Sam wanted him on a deeper level than just a best friend but i think Iz was going through enough things in his life right then to not let it all sink in despite the signs. It was actually pretty cute.
I do like my N.R. Walker books and look forward to reading more in the future.
