    I got all teary eyed in the prologue! Elijah/Angel was really exploited by people he trusted that it was heartbreaking. When he broke away and moved to Charles town starting Chapter 1 was wonderful tho. Widower of 4 years Jackson meets this gentle pretty man and starts out as a sincere friend that later morphes into a most devoted lover who gives him the unconditional love he deserves. He finds true love, great and sincere friends in the form of Shiloh, Alan, Josh and Nick as well. The epilogue I got all teary eyed in the prologue!

The epilogue shows how Elijah's life has picked up and he now has the support and means to fight his past abusers in court. They did not show how the case turned out but that is just secondary to Elijah's now full and happy life.

    I was lucky enough to win an e-copy of this from the author. I would have purchased it today (release day) anyway as I have been looking forward to it since the author announced its release. I am a big fan of this series and and I was eager to see where she would take the Men of Charlestown next. This is the perfect addition to the series. In this installment we meet Elijah, a former porn actor and substance abuser.

In this installment we meet Elijah, a former porn actor and substance abuser. The prologue (which was perfect) describes Elijah at the lowest point in his life. The story then jumps two years to Elijah as he is trying to better himself and forget the horrors of his past. It is at that time that he meets his new neighbor, Jackson. Jackson has been mourning the sudden death of his long-term partner for the past four years. Having convinced himself that there would never be another one true love in his life, he is surprised (and scared) of the sudden attraction that he feels for his new neighbor. I think what I really loved about this book was that there was no insta-sex or insta-love as we see in so many other m/m books these days. There is a friendship first that is allowed to play out over time. Both Elijah and Jackson have to work through the issues of their pasts before they can move on. The way this is done is perfect. Others from the series, Josh, Nick, Shiloh and Allen are all in this book. There is mention of Daniel (one of my favorite kids in a book ever) but he isn't actually in the book. Shiloh is one of my all time favorite gay characters (and I read a lot of m/m books) so I was happy to see that he played a part in Eli and Jack's story. I am also big on stories with an age difference between the two mains so that was another plus for me. Jackson is 39 and if my math is correct, Elijah is around 24. I really enjoyed this. I was somewhat concerned that certain things mentioned in the prologue and throughout the story would not have any kind of resolution. I was happy to read that that was not the case as she threw in a quick epilogue that satisfied me in that regard. As I said, a great addition to the Men of Charlestown series. Hopefully (hint, hint) we will see Daniel's story someday. I am a big fan of this author and can't wait to read more of her work.

    I love stories about second chances in love, and this is a wonderful example of what I love. Started very sad and I was rolling my eyes thinking, oh no!! another abused character. Luckily the author did a wonderful job, and she focus on Jackson and Elijah road of recovery. Both needed each other for different reason, Jackson mourning his husband's dead and Elijah, his horrible abused. Even though you may think it looks depressing, it wasn't. It was a beautiful story about love, acceptance, and find I love stories about second chances in love, and this is a wonderful example of what I love.

But of course he perseveres and gets to Charlestown where he moves in next to Jack. Jack is a widower who lost his partner to a senseless accident 4 years earlier and has been living a rather lonely life since then. His husband had been his best friend his whole life, so his loss was profound. Jack was very wise and loving and kind and supportive - oh yeah, and sexy. Don't we all wish we could find a Jack? I love that Jack has a nagging mother who wants him to get back out there and be happy again. Mine just wants me to do more stuff for her and I think she'd be thrilled to death now that I'm single again if I'd just stayed that way forever - or at least until she's done needing me! I was so happy to see Shiloh and Allen from Yummy Indulgences. I really enjoyed their story. And we also get to see Nick and Josh, although we don't see Danny in this one. These books are addicting. I know that I'm gonna not be squeezed through the wringer to get to a happy ending (although there will be some angst and conflict that will keep it interesting) and I love that there are series that I can count on for that. I hope there are more stories in this setting :)

    Both MC's are nice guys who deserve to be happy and they get it, and despite the blurb and subject matter it wasn't dark or depressing.

(view spoiler)[ there is off page talk of the MC being 15 at the time his older boyfriend/manager made him do porn movies and a suicide attempt at the very beginning, but like I said , it's not too heavy. But considering that story line of him being 15 and fake ID to do the porn, for him later to say he was safe to have sex without a condom since the porn industry had such high standards ! yes, in RL probably, but if they have a 15 year old as the star against his will , I wouldn't think condoms were a priority!

    I love how Jack and Eli took their time getting to know each other and how well they played off each other. There are the Ying and Yang. IT started out as a friendship that turned into a LOVE of a Life time. Jack gave Eli what he was looking for unconditional LOVE and Eli gave Jack the will to take a second change at LOVE. Eli also made New and TRUE friendw with Josh, Nick, Allen and Shiloh and lets not forget Shep... And to quote Jack " I think we're the best thing that happened to each other" An I love how Jack and Eli took their time getting to know each other and how well they played off each other.

    I love this series and this book was a great addition to it. I loved watching the slow build-up of the relationship between Jackson and Eli. Both men had their own reasons for not trusting in a new relationship but the attraction between them was inevitable. It was nice to see Shiloh and Allen and Nick and Josh again as well. I hope that there will be more stories in this series in the future.

    I love reading anything by Andi Anderson. Her stories always leave me feeling uplifted and with a smile on my face. Elijah had it rough and getting out of his abusive relationship almost cost him his life . . . but then Jack shows up. And hope is restored. It was sweet that these two characters took the time to let their relationship and trust develop before taking it further. Please give us more Andi!

    Andi Anderson takes what could be a dark and depressing story and instead makes it about light, hope, and love. While Jackson seems to what to care and watch out for Elijah you see that Elijah has his own strength and can be there for Jackson just as much. I also like that the recovery Elijah experience happens before and during his new relationship and his healing is for his own benefit and not dependent on anyone else. It is this very healing that makes his new relationship all the sweeter.

    2012 Review: So… Is Jackson sexy? I’ve come to the conclusion that the name usage in direct speech between the protagonists ceases to be an issue after a while per book in this series simply because they tend to slip into pet names and endearments instead. >.>; Gotta say though, for all the happy-happy and blatant wish fulfilment (hint: look out for mentions of flat screen TVs and other nice touches to homes in books), Elijah’s back story was actually harsh and uncompromisingly horrible.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the name usage in direct speech between the protagonists ceases to be an issue after a while per book in this series simply because they tend to slip into pet names and endearments instead. >.>; Gotta say though, for all the happy-happy and blatant wish fulfilment (hint: look out for mentions of flat screen TVs and other nice touches to homes in books), Elijah’s back story was actually harsh and uncompromisingly horrible. Still. *sigh* I am used to accepting awkward writing and repetitive phrases. But if you have to add in “beautiful”, “sexy” and other adjectives praising someone’s physical appearance in every other sentence, it kind of takes away from the tragic message you wish to convey. So if Jackson feels sad thinking of beautiful Eli in despair, it kinda begins to sound as though, well, if he was ugly it wouldn’t have been nearly as sad. Thus making it less about the person and more about the image. I remain curious about where Elijah’s money comes from. To afford moving, getting a house, multiple therapies… and even bumming about before finding a job. They never even talk about money. So where exactly did it come from? (view spoiler)[I mean his druggie mother wrote him off when he was fifteen, and I feel reasonably certain that his abusive manager and ex never set him up with his own cash. (hide spoiler)] So how’d he go from attempting to commit suicide to living in complete comfort? Anyway. This is just so… It’s genuinely trying, and up until they start with the mutual confessions of love it almost works, too, because both guys’ issues need to be conquered first. But from that point on it’s just talk and repetition of summarizing what they want or how they feel. That is plain boring and pointless. Even when Eli asks Jackson if he really, truly does not mind the porn thing, and Eli says, no, the past is the past and all that… they never actually touch on what the question should be about, i.e. won’t Jackson feel strange having (presumably) been with only one man while the much younger Eli had so many there’s no way to count them anymore? Nope. It’s just, “We can just learn from past mistakes and move on.” Which I agree with, of course. See, that is the thing. It’s all fairly sensible. But so devoid of any tension or, hell, life. And the way the keep using the word “acceptance” makes me want to scream. This is because of a) the repetitions and b) the way it tells instead of shows. Every single time. It truly amazes me that in all these books (in this series), while the author includes elements that make for perfectly fine antagonist material, she manages to never realize any of it. In book one, no one ever actually looked cross-eyed at Josh for being gay. In book two, the worst that Allen’s homophobic colleagues did was give him the silent treatment (and his boss used a few derogatory phrases) despite the inherent potential for violence; nor did they ever stumble upon Shiloh despite all the info on his whereabouts. In book three we got the most action, by way of that one school kid who picked on Daniel and then hit him. That was positively dramatic! And it also was resolved within a chapter or so. Now in the fourth and probably final book, we have all of Elijah’s shameful and horrific past, yet no one ever throws it into his face, nor does anyone from his past life show up to threaten him or anything. So much opportunity, yet none taken. All we get from all of this (except for that incident with Daniel at school) is a smooth, even ride into eternal happiness. And harping on said happiness ad nauseam. Okay. I supposed technically the prologue wherein Elijah slits his wrists is fairly dramatic, but that’s really all we get. As I said, the first half of this volume wasn’t a complete loss. Oh well. These books are still not offensive and they stay away from ridiculous physical attributes (aside from the fact that everyone’s supposed to be beautiful). I mean almost all of these guys are fairly short, some extremely so, and thankfully we never get a single reference to anyone’s penis size. XD Isn’t it terrible that I have to count this as a bit of a relief from other books I read? So yeah. Pointless as hell but still not choking the happy out of me. Or maybe I am just particularly mellow these days. We may never know.

    I've enjoyed all of the Men of Charlestown books I've read so far and this one is no exception. I remember feeling so bad for Jackson at the end of Daniel's Dream, seeing him mourning the death of his husband. Knowing that he had his own book excited me and I'm so glad I read this charming story. Both Jackson and Elijah have been through their fair share of pain, but through each other's love and acceptance, they rise above the pain and find true love in the process.

    Damn, this woman needs an editor. The story isn't bad per se, but there are so many grammar errors that I almost DNFed it at 60%. Chapter 13 was probably the best of the whole book, and not just because it was last. There was finally some good imagination involved in the writing and a lovely little sex scene to wrap up the book. If you can't overlook the grammar, punctuation, and incorrect word choices, don't start this book. Damn, this woman needs an editor.
