New release: Blue by D.P. Denman

Title: Blue
Author: D.P. Denman
Genre: M/M Contemporary
Published: September 25, 2015
Long before he was a successful songwriter and black-belt badass, Blue was a survivor. He escaped a program designed to cure him. One that left him near death with nothing to rely on but the kindness of a stranger. Hostile and headstrong, he needed a calmer influence to balance his fury. Someone to save him from himself. Brady’s life was quiet and orderly until fate sent him a blue-eyed hurricane. Bursts of temper and flashes of despair battered his efforts to quiet the storm in a man he doubted he could tame. One drowning in the wreckage of his past. With a head full of lies and a body full of scars, Blue worked to rebuild his life with the help of a man who showed him sometimes trust is worth the risk. Blue features one of the most popular characters from the Saving Liam saga! Destined for greatness, he reveals the past that made him the scarred bad boy readers love.

Award winning author DP Denman writes character-driven contemporary romance about gay men. Her stories are real and intense, but resolve in endings that make people want to read the book all over again. She lives among the moss and trees of the Pacific Northwest with a rambunctious pair of fur babies.
In her spare time, she is a dedicated LGBTQIA rights activist with a special focus on the thousands of rejected and abandoned kids who end up on the street every year. To support the cause, 25% of the royalties from every book go to LGBT charities.

My review
What would you do if an amnesiac, half-frozen teen wearing only jeans, a t-shirt and shoes collapsed in your backyard?

(D. P. Denman) tells an engrossing story of Brady Halverson, an investment broker, who takes in the teen, who he names Blue until he remembers his real name.

Who is Blue? What's his real name? Where did he come from? Why was he outside in the middle of winter without a winter coat, hat, gloves and boots?

The surprising and somewhat horrifying answer comes as Blue's memory returns slowly which leaves him with scars, both seen and unseen.

Readers will be drawn into the story, experiencing the outpouring of emotions from the main characters which, among others, include fear, anger, hopelessness, and frustration. For most readers, many surprises await you.

Blue is an engosssing page-turner (I read it in one sitting, I couldn't put it down), very well written with well developed characters.

On a scale if 1 to 5, I give it a solid 5, and I highly recommend it.
