WARNING: Contains materials for ADULTS only.If you have any reason to think that you cannot or will not tolerate any type of mature subject matter, please do not continue. If you have any issues with any type of taboo, or what you may consider taboo material, please do not read.

Journalist Carter Roberts was required to interview Carl Foltz and Matt Evans for an article on their lives. It was not an assignment he relished: he just wanted to get there, get it done and get out. Thinking about the subject matter made his stomach churn.

The interview reveals as much about himself as about the two men, and for the first time, Carter learns what a real home feels like. He never would have expected that meeting the two men would change his way of thinking – and his life – forever.

Well, what can I say about this book? Did you read the warning above? Max did warn you that the subject matter was mature and taboo, so don't go whining about anything you read. You..Were..Warned!
What did I do with that warning? I bought the book because I wanted to know what all the hoopla was about. Do I regret buying the book? Hell No. Did a few parts make be cringe? Yep, but I read the whole book and I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.  
Being a gay man, working for a gay paper you would think that Carter has seen, read or written it all, but this story was something completely new to him. Going out on assignment for the paper, Carter heads out to interview Carl and Matt, two men living together on a farm way out in the sticks. Going in with preconceived notions, Carter thinks he's going to get in, do a quick interview and fly home. Things change quickly when he meets the two men who are so much in love with each other that he is taken aback by the amount of emotion he feels just being around them.
Carl and Matt have a big secret, only a few people know what it is and they want Carter to tell their story. Interviewing them one on one first, Carter knows that when he walked in the door his feelings and thinking were so far off base that he was actually embarrassed for being so judgmental, even if only in his mind.  
Staying for a few days he learns what real love truly is and has a big choice of his own to make. Will he stay where he knows what love really is or will he go back to his life in the city? 
Am I going to tell you what the big taboo story line is? No way, read the book if you want to know. You might actually like it, it's a beautifully written story about finding love in the most unusual places with the most unexpected people. 
If you want to buy the book, you need to buy if from HERE because the book was removed from Amazon and ARe due to some people being total douche-bags.
