Between Sinners And Saints

Between Sinners and Saints - Marie Sexton 3.5 starsHmmm…well, there were parts of this book that I really, really enjoyed. And there were parts that started to wear me down and annoy me by the end.I like Jaime and Levi…2 broken, haunted men…coping in completely different ways…finding and building a friendship. The Mormon-family/gay-son storyline was interesting and went above and beyond your typical “my family doesn’t accept I’m gay” arc I’ve read in the past.I think what started to turn me off a bit was once “love” was brought into the mix: Levi was uncharacteristically a pushover and Jaime was whinier than ever. I understand the why’s of their behavior. The change just felt a bit drastic and didn’t completely jive with the characters as they were being built in the earlier stages of the book. Still, very enjoyable and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.Bad cover alert: the redhead...I'm guessing is supposed to be Jaime...is creeeeepy and freaks me out...
