They’ve escaped to the outside world–but can they really be free?
David and Isaac have found happiness in each other’s arms. In faraway San Francisco, Isaac’s brother Aaron helps them explore confusing “English” life and move beyond the looming shadow of their Amish roots. For the first time, David and Isaac can be openly gay, yet they struggle to reconcile their sexuality with their faith. At least they don’t have to hide their relationship, which should make everything easier. Right?
But while Isaac thrives at school and makes new friends, David wrestles to come to terms with the reality of the outside world. Haunted by guilt at leaving his mother and sisters behind in Zebulon, he’s overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the city as he works to get his carpentry business off the ground.
While David and Isaac finally sleep side by side each night, fear and insecurity could drive them miles apart.
Note: This is the second chapter in a trilogy of forbidden Amish love. This book features explicit sex and is not an inspirational/Christian novel.
A Gay Amish Romance… If you have read A Forbidden Rumspringa by Keira Andrews, you know that it does exist. If you haven’t you need to experience it.
A Clean Break picks up where A Forbidden Rumspringa leaves off. Where Rumspringa was entirely from Isaac’s perspective, in A Clean Break his time we see into the mind and heart of David.
In short, he is struggling. They made the only decision they could, but now they are faced with a world for which he feels completely unprepared. He is trying to fit in while meeting the learning curve head on. He is trying to be strong while he is falling apart inside.
For the most part, A Clean Break is a straightforward contemporary romantic look into the lives of an existing couple, Isaac and David. The twist is that David and Isaac are quite naive to the ways of the English world, thanks to their very sheltered lives. One seems to be adapting better than the other. This dichotomy just may tear them apart.
A Clean Break is heartbreaking and sweet, sexy and realistic, fantastic and mundane. So I guess it is full of dichotomies.
In short, I truly enjoyed this look into Isaac and David’s adjustment, and I am eagerly awaiting the third installment in Isaac and David’s journey. All I have to ask is PLEASE don’t take too long 😉
