When Sarina Bowen first announced that she was republishing two M/M romances she had previously written under another name, I had two reactions: (1) shock, because I never came across these two books when I was first discovered Sarina Bowen, and (2) excitement, because the Him series is my all-time favorite M/M series so of course I knew I was going to be in for a treat when I started Goodbye Paradise.
Despite its name, growing up in a place called Paradise has been anything but for young Joshua Royce. With no connection to the outside world, the only thing getting him through the past few years is his best friend, Caleb Smith. Josh has had a crush on his best friend for as long as he could remember, but never dared to act on his feelings as he feared what might happen if anyone found out. But when Caleb suspects that Josh may be thrown out from the cult, he must figure out a way to save his best friend before it’s too late.
