Say it Right is the second installment in A.M Arthur's All Saints Series.
Marcos and Anthony have know each other since they were six years old. They thought that they were going to travel the world together when Anthony became a famous soccer player. Life had other plans for them and most of that seemed to be hell for the two of them. When Marcos came out to his family he expected his family to stand behind him and support him. What he got instead is to be kicked out and disowned by his father. He went to Anthony’s place after being kicked out was allowed to stay the night. Afterwards he was told that he had to leave because he was a pervert. When he asked Anthony to go with him, what he got was a backpack with supplies. Anthony was too afraid to go with him, and Marcos felt that betrayal for a long time. Life on the streets isn’t easy and Marcos went through hell and more. When he gets a surprise visit from Maddy, Anthony’s younger sister, he is surprised to find out that Anthony has become a drug addict and has been lost for a while.
He goes with her to find him and when he sees Anthony after so many years he is distressed to see what has become of the love of his life. There are so many things that needed to be said by the both of them to each other that maybe their lives wouldn’t have ended up the way it did. The past can’t be changed, but the work can be done to make a great future. Anthony promises Marcos that he is going to do everything he can to make sure that he earns Marcos’ trust and affection. Even though they are working towards a future together, Marcos still has toxic feelings inside of him that threaten to destroy what they have been working so hard for. When Marcos gets devastating news he reacts by hurting the one he loves and running away. If he doesn’t get his head on straight everything he has worked so hard for can be lost in a regrettable moment.
I really enjoyed this book. It kept me in the story and the reason I put it down was because I had to work. I wanted to keep reading and continue the journey that Marcos and Anthony were on. I will be reading by this author and can’t wait what else is in store.
