What Are You Reading-Wednesday


28549365I’m currently reading Out of Nowhere by Roan Parrish.
Started this one as soon as it appeared on my kindle on monday and I love it soo much.
Colin was a class-A asshole in In the Middle of Somewhere and I wasn’t sure the author could manage to make me not hate him or maybe like him. But she did. And not only do I like him, I LOVE Colin. Yes, he was an ass in the first book. And there’s no excuse for that. But I do understand him so much better. And I really only want to hug him. All this hurt and the anger hit me right in my heart! And Rafe. ❤ Gosh those two will kill me.
Those FEELS! And I’m only about halfway through! Because of reasons I haven’t had as much reading time as I would like, but I really hope to finish it soon.

Roan Parrish really knows how to hit you right in the feels. She doesn’t pull the punches. Her writing is raw and gritty and so intense! I already know that this one will be one of my all-time favourites.

If you haven’t read In the Middle of Somewhere yet, go and read it.
And then read Out of Nowhere! You don’t want to miss these two.


The only thing in Colin Mulligan’s life that makes sense is taking cars apart and putting them back together. In the auto shop where he works with his father and brothers, he tries to get through the day without having a panic attack or flying into a rage. Drinking helps. So do running and lifting weights until he can hardly stand. But none of it can change the fact that he’s gay, a secret he has kept from everyone.

Rafael Guerrera has found ways to live with the past he’s ashamed of. He’s dedicated his life to social justice work and to helping youth who, like him, had very little growing up. He has no time for love. Hell, he barely has time for himself. Somehow, everything about miserable, self-destructive Colin cries out to him. But down that path lie the troubles Rafe has worked so hard to leave behind. And as their relationship intensifies, Rafe and Colin are forced to dredge up secrets that both men would prefer stay buried.

    • Yes! Loved it too. And Colin!! 💙 I just couldn’t hate him. Although I was fully prepared to after his behaviour in book 1.


      • There is something about the way he is so broken and self-loathing but healing….that’s some hard writing to pull off. So many Kudos to the author.


      • What I loved was that it felt real and not made up. That kind of honesty is hard to pull off. Want to reread it now!
