About the Author
Raised in one of the cold corners of the world, Avylinn spends her days either wrapped up in a blanket or basking in the precious sunlight. When she can’t choose herself, she’s holed up in an office working with climate research that has little to do with the worlds and characters she creates in her vivid dreams.

Always the emotional one, she has found her outlet in writing, voicing thoughts, emotions and fears through her characters that feel very much alive to her. And, what began as a hobby soon took more and more time in her life until she realized that she had left her old life behind and entered a new one where her emotions turned into a super power—ready to launch at her poor readers.

She recharges with the help of coffee, cinnamon buns, popcorn and occasionally a healthier alternative.

When true love is a lie and pleasure turns to pain.

Adam Webb spent most of his teenage years in love with his best friend, Gabriel Connor, only to be thrown out of their shared apartment when he finally found the courage to reveal his feelings.

Seven months later, Adam’s effort to save their lost friendship finds him more than he ever asked for. After all, being thrown out has to be better than thrown into a wall. However, Adam isn’t ready to give up. Trapped and isolated in a dangerous relationship, he falls deeper and deeper into Gabriel’s world.

Despite Adam’s attempts to push them away, his friends are determined to help, but the man who fights hardest is Cameron McCain, Adam’s photography teacher—a man who treasures what Gabriel does not.

They say love should conquer all. But when passion breeds fear and love turns toxic, will Adam make the right choice?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of domestic violence, emotional abuse and dubious consent.

Publisher's Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.

Deep sigh....because this is toxic...very...
Slowly very slowly Gabriel infiltrate through Adam his pores in his veins almost unnoted if you weren't aware of the fact that Gabriel wasn't very nice in Volatile.....

So unhealthy....so unhealthy I wanted to crawl in this book to let Adam see all the signs....
But Adam is blindly in love with Gabriel for ages....

First Gabriel throws Adam out when he reveals his feelings for him.
Then he let him suck him.
Then he want them to be a secret
Then he manipulates 
Then he use force 
Then there is a mess an awful mess.

Adam studies and want to be a photographer His teacher Cameron is helping him. They have a soft spot for each other. Only he isn't allowed to feel and look.
Adam withdraws from all social life, from his roommate, his family, his friends and from Cameron. Adam lost so many parts of.....himself.
Gabriel is taking over everything, as Adam has no say in it.

Then, thank God for friends, there is an intervention. His friends 'kidnap' him in the early morning. 
Cameron, Chris and Dante tried everything to help him and Adam didn't let them.....caught in his own web of lies...Now he has to....
There are many feelings which heavily presses upon him. Shame is a great issue, failure also, guilt.....and there is grief... for what could have been.
He longed and feared love and comfort at the same time. He has is hard. He is hurt inside and outside.
It's time to go back home, Adam wants to face Gabriel on his own......
When he steps into Gabriel's room Gabriel locks the door.....

A harsh and at the same time an amazing read. The way it is written is vivacious, heavy, captivating and honest. The theme is heavy as lead and I think this author did a good job, the way it was put down. The flow was constant and consistent. 

An absolute mustread for the ones who can overlook the whole theme and who are not afraid of confrontations.

A great affirmation:  "None of it was my fault.”
