How can you hope to find love if you cannot love yourself?
Eric Fox is an actor faced with his most difficult role yet—being himself. Seven years ago, on the way to his high school prom, an accident drove him from the arms of his young love, CJ. Eric ran away to LA, and CJ was left to pick up the pieces of his broken heart and broken life.
Guilt and regret has eaten away at Eric since that day, leading him to turn to the darker side of celebrity—to sex and alcohol. On a downward spiral and after a series of bad choices, Eric makes the difficult decision to return home. But returning home and having to spend two weeks with the man he left behind could be an obstacle Eric is nowhere near ready to face.
Can Eric find the strength to ask for CJ's forgiveness? And more importantly, can he find the courage to forgive himself?
As a proviso to this review, Meredith Russell is my friend and co-author. Thing is, if you are a fan of Sapphire Cay, then you'll see Meredith's influence all over those books. I have been lucky enough to be able to watch Saving Mr Fox since Meredith first started writing it, and the end result is awesome.
I love Eric, an actor who really has reached the ragged edge in life. I love CJ who has built a new life for himself. CJ shows an incredible strength of character in how he comes to terms with what he needs and what Eric needs. When the two come together this becomes a poignant story of forgiveness and understanding. Lovely book, 5/5.
