When Sean Loves Rusty by Chris Cox Review & Giveaway

When Sean Loves Rusty Blog Tour Banner
Best friends since grade school, lovers since high school, Sean Delahunt and Rusty Duchene thought nothing could ever tear them apart. Then Sean graduates college and his world changes, while Rusty’s stays the same.
Offered a job in Boston, Sean knows asking Rusty to leave New Orleans is a big sacrifice for his soul mate, who has a successful career and supportive family. Abused and rejected by his own family, Sean struggles with self worth and thinks this career opportunity will give him a new life.
Rusty wavers in his trust but takes and chance and agrees to follow him to Boston.
Alone for several weeks in a strange city, Sean is determined to make friends on his own. When Rusty arrives, this new Sean makes him feel insecure. Crushing student loans, being unable to find a job and suspicions about the nature of Sean’s friends strain an already tenuous relationship.
A trip home for the holidays reminds both men of all they’ve left behind and makes them reevaluate what they want in their future.
On the verge of wedding vows, a career crisis threatens to bring their lives back full circle.
Money, moves and men…will this longtime love last forever or will life in the big city destroy their young love?

REVIEW: Sean and Rusty have been together for years. They were best friends since the sandbox and lovers since high school. Sean's father kicked him out of the house at the age of sixteen when he came out. Rusty's parents took Sean in and treated Sean like their son. Sean has just graduated from college and is having a hard time finding a job. Then when he finally finds one it turns out to be halfway across the country in Boston. 

Rusty's family is everything to him. He works for the family business and never really thought of doing anything accept landscaping. So when Sean gets a job in Boston he has some soul searching to do. Can he move away from everything he's ever known? Can he live without his soulmate? He decides to move because he can't live without Sean. But Sean's been away for two months and he's started to live his life without Rusty for the first time. He's met new friends and found an apartment. Will Rusty fit into this new life?

I totally enjoyed this book!!  The situations are the same normal couples face everyday. And the love these two have for each other shines through each test. It was great to see Sean grow into a self confident man and for Rusty to allow him to take the lead in the relationship. 

I really hope to find out more about this couple at some point....even a short story to catch up a couple years down the line would be great!!

When Sean Loves Rusty
Sean wanted to go to him. To wrap his arms around the boy who always included him, to the man who always comforted him.
Instead, he squeezed the pillow tighter and willed Rusty to turn around. If he would just turn around.
“Bravado. It was all bluff. I was scared shitless. Every time we moved, I was scared shitless.”
“What were you afraid of?”
“Of being alone.”
“Is that why you’re with me?” Rusty unfolded his arms and scrubbed both hands through his curls. “No, of course not. You would never have to be alone if you didn’t want to be. With the way you look, with the way you are, you’d just have to give a guy one of those sideways looks and he’d follow you anywhere.”
“No, Rusty. No. They wouldn’t. I wouldn’t.”
“You did. You said you really wanted to go to Boston.” Rusty turned around. The tears streaking his face broke Sean’s heart. “And I said I would follow you anywhere.”
“And now you don’t want to.”
