Waking one morning to learn Trey had been whisked away, transferred to another facility, Jeremy fears he and Trey might never see each other again. When he learns from the local news that Trey has been sent back to county to face a retrial, he doesn’t know whether to pray for his acquittal or to hope for his return. Jeremy has to forge a new path, discover a way to move on with his life without Trey. The two will likely never see each other again, but Jeremy can’t forget so easily. He turns to others for support and falls into the arms of another man, but will his new love ever really take the place of Trey?
Review: With Trey’s second trial looming before him it sets Trey on a collision course with his memories and the reason why he pleaded guilty. Jeremy knows that Trey did not abandon him yet and seeks the protection of another inmate named Darrin, the preacher. I never liked Darren despite his preacher ways. He seemed fishy and shady to me. That became even more prominent when he finally got his hooks in Jeremy.
We are also introduced to CO Corey Levine who is gay and finds himself very much attracted to the new prisoner Robert “Bobby” Howard. The feeling is mutual with Bobby and Bobby flirts every chance he gets with the Cory.
This is such a good yet emotional and tense series. Most of the characters have their own agendas for why they do what they do in prison be it for love or protection. The whole series so far is an enjoyable read into what prison life may be like.
