Monday Must Reads...WITH OR WITHOUT YOU!

Monday Must Reads! is a feature I created to showcase books that I think you, well, Must Read! (ha!).

Today's Must Read is one that my good friend @MandieBaxter recommended to me (and loaned out to me) and I couldn't be happier that she did. This book, simply put, ROCKS. Here's the synopsis so you'll know what it's about...

With or Without You
by Brian Farrey

product description from goodreads.com

Eighteen year-old Evan and his best friend, Davis, get beaten up for being loners. For being gay. For just being themselves. But as rough as things often seem, at least Evan can take comfort in his sweet, sexy boyfriend Erik--whom he’s kept secret from everyone for almost a year.

Then Evan and Davis are recruited to join the Chasers, a fringe crowd that promises them protection and status. Davis is swept up in the excitement, but Evan is caught between his loyalty to Davis and his love for Erik. Evan’s lied to keep his two worlds separate. Now his lies are about to implode…and destroy the very relationships he’s been trying to protect.

Trust me when I say that you want to read this book. Superb writing and heartfelt characters are just the beginning. Hurry and snag a copy today, and get lost (like I did) in the pages of Brian Farrey's gritty world!
