Blog Tour: Praying for Time by Cassandre Dayne

What if a single secret shared between friends could destroy everything?

Russell Willis adores Jake Timmons and while their relationship has its ups and downs, they are happy, healthy and living life the way they’ve always dreamed. A well-respected architect, Russell has plans for the future, which include marriage, but in a single moment, his visions are shattered—Jake is gravely ill. 

While Jake has always kept his emotions and details about his past locked away, the diagnosis shuts him down into a world of denial, a refusal to face reality. Unsure of what to do, Russell allows him space until he’s certain his lover is having an affair. Angry and confused, he flees, seeking solace, answers and possibly retribution. 

Kyle Bass knows about tragedy. His long-time lover was taken in a drunken driving accident, he’s barely on the healing track, and guilt has changed him forever. When he finds out about Jake’s condition, he offers to help, no matter what he’s asked to do. The request rattles his world. Determined to keep the secret, Kyle is led down an emotional trail until he’s unable to cope. As the scheme turns ugly and he’s accused of betrayal, he struggles with his personal demons. 

Unfortunately Jake’s health takes a serious turn for the worse. In his quest to bring Russell home, Kyle is forced to face the truth about undying love. Secrets endured from their respective pasts take a damning toll and yet one hidden treasure remains—an unexpected light in a bleak time, but would the two haunted men grasp onto the only thing able to save them? Sadly, as their respective worlds unravel, they are all praying for time.

I've been seeing a lot of Cassandre Dayne books on NetGalley lately, and absolutely love it! Not sure why, but I've definitely been on a bit of a m/m romance kick this summer, and Praying For Time was absolutely the most heartbreaking story I've read in a good long while in any sort of romance. Now, I'm not the biggest fan of this cover, but the blurb really hooked me.

Russell and Jake are happy. Life isn't perfect, but they've got each other. at least until Jake gets sick and is faced with a very possibly terminal diagnosis. He handles it out by shutting Russell out, and everything spirals from there. Enter Kyle.

Praying for Time is packed with twists and drama, while keeping the relationship between Russell and Jake at it's core. I almost wish we could have spent more time (no pun intended) with just these two without bringing Kyle into the mis, but ultimately the story worked well and had me hooked.
