    4 HeartsI admit that the thought of starting this really long and really ambitious autobiography was intimidating I had hesitated over The Book of Beginnings It's Just Us Here which is the skeleton of a planned 9 volume omnibus but I didn’t just want the outline If I was going to attempt this behemoth I wanted every wo

    Now LIVE on I’m going to get very serious with this review I already said in The Book of Beginnings It's Just Us Here that Chris’s life story is affecting me deeply like a mirror has been opened into my own soul but I never said why So I’m going to share something very personal to show you just how important this b

    5 StarsI’ll start off by linking my review for The Book of Beginnings which is where I started on my journey with Mark and Chris and became hooked Fangirling is probably accurate unapologetic shrug Warning This linked review goes well beyond spoilersish in nature when considering what this book focuses on The Friend but I feel that my review was much elouent well as much as I can actually be when sueeing than what wi

The Friend Its Just Us Here #1

An asexual man meets a male model and slowly falls in love Mark the model has not been challenged in his life and is emotionally withdrawn He returns to Chicago in the hopes of reconnecting with his college friends but everyone has moved on without him starting families and growing up Chris the writer is socially awkward and introverted He actively tries to be as invisible as possible The two men meet one day in Chris' favorite park and strike up a friendship Since this is written as a romance you probably have a pretty good idea where the story goes from there You'd be wron Now LIVE on I m going to get very serious with this review I already said in The Book of Beginnings It s Just Us Here that Chris s life story is affecting me deeply like a mirror has been opened into my own soul but I never said why So I m going to share something very personal to show you just how important this book is for asexuals I will share this once and then never talk about it again I used to see my life like a piano symphony Everyday I woke up to play my song over and over again until the tune was flawless Every hurdle every fear every limitation was a broken note in my symphony I didn t like my song to be out of tune and just like a piano player rehearsed those broken passages to perfection I too came back again and again to my fears and hurdles and limitations until I pulverized them But I never knew what to do about my sexuality I never understood why I never looked at a man or a woman or any human being for that matter and could never see them as a sexual partner I never understood why I never felt the butterflies in my stomach when I was kissed I never knew the goosebumps of a touch on my arm and I never was really truly interested in sex When friends in high school asked me who do you like I always shrugged When I was asked Who is the hottest boy in school I shrugged Twelve years ago I thought I was broken I thought I had received a defective body at incarnation My symphony was out of tune and I had no idea how to play the notes Boy I wish I had Chris s book then I wish I knew what an asexual was twelve years ago I wish I knew there were others like me out there and that is okay not to feel any sexual desires towardsanyone I really thought I was broken And I could not accept it So I hid it and created a persona for myself which I showed to everyone except my boyfriend who is also my best friend and was the only one that knew me for real For everybody else I was a great actor and I played the role of Mark the social butterfly like a pro I considered my lack of sexuality a limitation I never accepted my limitations or my fears They were broken notes and I rehearsed them until they played so right smoke came out of the piano strings Just like Chris I hate being complimented and being told I was attractive So I started modelling to get used to it when I was 19Just like Chris I hate being the center of attention Guess who leads a global team in a corporation and has to give live presentations in front of hundreds of peopleJust like Chris I hate clubs As a manager I need to lead my team to those stupid corporate events and act like I have fun The soul of the party I have been called One of my best acts ever I m a very indoor person I like to cuddle and vegetate on my couch read and maybe write I couldn t accept that either so I shipped my ass to Camino de Santiago and walked 400 miles to Santiago de Compostela to call myself outdoorsy Just like Chris I once thought I may be gay if I didn t have any interest in men maybe I was interested in women So I went to a lesbian club to test it out Worst Decision Ever I was 19 at that time I was a former athlete The sport I practiced reuired me lifting weights I could push up to 90kg so even if I was like 57 kg myself I could lift someone almost twice my weight I have a problem with personal space I have a problem with touching without my permission I have a problem with people being sexually aggressive So I went to the club And to say that those ladies were aggressive in coming onto me it is mildly put Chris was cute when he was saying that he blushed and transformed into a turtle and hid whenever someone was coming onto him I transformed into fucking King Kong This lady touched my leg in the club I felt beyond uncomfortable I frowned at her hand and asked her to take it away She didn t I asked her again She grabbed my thigh and sueezed That poor poor lady She never knew what hit her She flew over the couch on the other side like a torpedo Guess who had her personal space the entire night Ten meters of it Only recently I have realized how wrong I was playing the symphony Because I was not accepting myself I was not playing my own song but the song society had built for me Soon the illness came I strongly believe that every disease in your body is triggered by a negative emotion you kept locked away until it started to affect your body When you don t accept yourself and you don t love yourself as a woman you get issues with your ovaries Everything is well now I am healthy I have a completely different approach to life and I have been in a relationship with my best friend for 11 years But it has been a work of many many years to get me where I am now and to get me to accept myself Reading the Friend right now in this period of my life feels like a final compensation from my oversoul that all is well with me and I have passed the trials of this game of acceptance But I still wish I had Chris s book earlier It would have been so helpful it would have been a lesson on how to understand myself I believe Mark was a God given gift to Chris Without Mark Chris would never have been so happy as he is now No matter the struggles between them they were meant for each other meeting at the right time in the right period of their lives so they could grow together and balance each other out until they became one single soul one single heart and one single breath I cried several times during this book because I could connect to both Mark and Chris and feel the love they have for each other This book shows the beginning when they were just friends Seeing them slowly fall in love and not realizing it was completely beautiful God I love this series It s different than anything I have ever read in my life This will be one of those books I will read over and over again as the years will passI am compelled by the goodreads rules to say that I am one of the beta readers of The Friend together with Gabriella and Annob so I did receive this for free from the author and my opinion is honest If you didn t get that yet

Y then jump in at Book Four of this self portrait The Lover Otherwise come along for the ride and meet the man who would sweep me off my feet Mark Wolff one of the top ten most self absorbed men in the whole world NOTE This book is a 95000 word romantic self portrait featuring the beginnings of a ueer relationship It is the first book of a trilogy which is itself part of a larger trilogy Low heat for now I don't think we need trigger warnings for this book but future installments might warrant them Maybe that can serve as enough of a warning Warning this book if full of life I wanted to read just a few pages to see how I would feel about it because I don t usually read memoires but I ended up finishing it the same dayI found the story very engaging and I loved the way it was written Since it is a true story I won t make any comments other than say that I really loved Chris and Mark and yes that s the right way to have a shower
