Life hasn’t been good to Jeb Birchman. When he attempted to escape his abusive, zealot father, he found himself on the streets, making a living the only way he knew how, the victim of more violent men—one of whom orchestrates a series of vicious attacks that leave Jeb deaf. Now that he’s aged beyond his latest client’s interest, Jeb knows he needs to escape his risky lifestyle before it’s too late. Seeing one last chance for himself, he earns a GED and enrolls in college.

Freddy Williams enjoys a life that couldn’t be more different from what Jeb has survived. He loves sports, being a personal trainer, and hanging out with friends. The son of deaf parents, Freddy is an outspoken advocate of the Deaf community and works as an interpreter at his college. When he meets Jeb at the bookstore, he’s struck by how attractive he is, and as they get to know each other, he finds Jeb’s good heart just as appealing. By the time he learns of Jeb’s past, it’s only a few steps behind them, and Freddy must make a choice between school and his familiar routine and protecting the man he’s falling in love with.

How to start a book...getting chased by your pimp who want to kill you. 
I almost jumped out of my chair...
 
It's raw...the life Jeb was living as a houseboy to Nolan then to old for a houseboy and put out on the streets then used as a fuckboy for Nolan's buddy's. Jeb needs the money so he finally can go to college.
Freddie has his life under control his college, sports, the deaf community.
When Freddie sees Jeb for the first time he's striked by his beauty. Jeb is deaf not by birth but by cruelty. Freddie his parents are deaf by birth so he understands the difficulty.
We can see the body language of both man and I mean not only the signs :)
 
Jeb has real issues with trust he has been hurt badly before. His experience is: after good there is always coming bad, really bad things.
There is a lot of story. Jeb chased by his past. Having Nolan's son Max (who escaped Nolan) under his wings. Freddie who is trying to earn his trust. Danger is following Jeb and Max while Freddie circling in the middle of it all. They are all young and have to deal with a lot of stress out situations. 
After the police put the three in a safe house it looks like everything will be alright only who knows the shit just starts right after then....
 
It's a very elaborate and detailed story. In some ways to extended because by describing all the facial and body expressions and all the environments it becomes distracting and holding the attention away from the main core. Nevertheless this story was entertaining and with lots of exciting moments.
Trust is indeed the big issue in this story.
