SYNOPSIS

One click.
One perfect frame.
That’s all it takes to capture an eternal moment; although most people let them pass by without acknowledgement.
I don’t waste any.
Not a single one.
If I see something of beauty, I want to experience it, feel it and immortalise it.
If I see someone of beauty, I want to taste them, worship them and memorise them.
I don’t have a type, if I like you, I like you.
I don’t have a preference.
My bisexuality is a gift, not a defect.
It’s the freedom to see beyond gender.
One blink.
One touch.
One night.
Life is filled with so many ones.
One chance to get things right.
One life to live as you choose.
One decision that gives you acceptance.
One person to fill the emptiness.
Just one?
Nah, like I said, life is full of ones.
My camera lets me focus on the good times; I develop from life’s negatives and if things don’t work out, I just take another shot.
Who needs just one?

‘Love hurts. It gives, and it takes away. It’s brutal with its beauty.’

We absolutely love this series, so were excited to read Isaac’s story – which is book five – as it’s the one we’ve been dying for. Whilst this can be read as a standalone we highly recommend reading this series in its entirety, as it’s fabulous. So much romance, passion, drama and angst. So much emotion and love.

‘His thoughts, his dreams, his wants, and his desires. This man is dangerous to me.’

We weren’t sure where Isaac’s story would go or how he would find his happiness but we were ready to find out. The enigmatic – almost stuck in life’s limbo – Fox brother who’s a renowned genius behind the camera needed to find his happiness, settle down and be loved. He needed to find his place as a man, not the brother or son of….

‘I am lost because he found me.’

Isaac and Flynn’s story is one of finding one-self through the aftermath of tragedy and the overcoming of obstacles as well as healing – with family at the core. It was beautiful, passionate and quite emotional. A true journey of love, reclaiming and understanding. With love comes hope. With injustice comes forgiveness. And with tragedy comes reclamation.

‘Even now my life is divided. There’s before. Then there’s after. The two are entwined yet so far apart that they cannot exist side by side.’

Isaac is at a crossroad. His photography career is soaring yet his personal life is struggling as his heart feels lonely, wanting someone he believes he can never have. Flynn.  Isaac’s tired of meaninglessness and day to day. Deep down he wants permanence and forever whilst outwardly rebelling this. Tragedy finds him questioning everything. He intrigued us and stole our hearts from the first time we met him.

‘Life gives and life takes away. It’s brutal, and it’s fucking unfair, and I don’t understand it, but what I do know is that it goes on with or without you.’

Flynn has fought his way to be where he is today, currently working as a health and fitness expert as well as model turned actor. He’s still struggling to come to terms with a family tragedy and the confusion that’s risen from this heartbreak. Sometimes we question who we are and reject parts of ourselves despite the ease with which it makes us feel or what our heart clearly needs. Sometimes we hurt the ones we love. Sometimes we need reassuring that it’s okay to love who our heart desires.

‘Why did I ever fight this? Why did I ever think I could win against the power this man has over me? He owns me.’

Flynn and Isaac do not have the best memory of each other for many reasons, yet is this truly so? Meeting up again brings back pain and confusion yet through personal realisations and healing comes self-assurance and an open heart and mind. Sometimes the best comes to those who wait, and who opens their soul to true love.

‘Acceptance is serenity. It’s happiness, it’s understanding, it’s faith in yourself and others. It’s knowing that you can’t change the past, but you can choose your future. Acceptance is love.’
