#BookReview Dare To Hope by TM Smith #Audiobook @TTCBooksandmore #Giveaway

Tristan is the second oldest of the Brennan brothers and the odd man out. Most of the Brennan men have careers in law enforcement, but as a psychiatrist, Tristan chooses to help people in a different way. Quiet and restrained, he is content to hover in the background of his more gregarious brothers. Then he meets two men, each broken and damaged from losses beyond their control.

Gabriel Simenson is mourning his lover's death. The random act of violence that took Gio's life has left everyone at All Cocks reeling. The only thing keeping Gabe from drowning in misery is the friendship he's forged with Micah, the newest model at All Cocks. He continues to struggle, and at the urging of his All Cocks family Gabe agrees to counseling with Tristan under one condition: Micah must go with him.

Micah Solo can relate to unbearable loss, having lost his leg and so much more in Iraq. The past two years he has been alone, adrift and vulnerable - the memories of war haunting his dreams, spilling over into his daily life. At All Cocks, Micah has found the acceptance he craves and the family he lost, but still he yearns for happiness and peace within.

The friendship between the three is instant, the mutual attraction evident. They circle each other, wanting more, yet unsure if it is truly possible. Is life the mundane reality they've each come to accept for themselves or do they dare to hope?

The All Cocks Stories is a series set within the world of online gay porn. Micah's PTSD is told in detail, including flashbacks to his time in Iraq.

BOOK REVIEW

This story is about Micah is a former soldier who suffers from PTSD, Gabe who is mourning the loss of his lover and Tristan who wants them both but can't do anything because he is also their therapist.

We also get to see what happens in the All Cocks productions as well as previous characters, mostly Mattie, Victor and 

There is a lot going on in this story which is a mix of high emotions, good humor and hot scenes. The romance between Micah, Gabe and Tristan took a while to take off and seemed to take second place to everything else in the meantime. Also the transitions between scenes seemed choppy at times.

But once the romance took off and Gabe, Tristan and Micah realised they had feelings for each, the conflict ramped up and became interesting as the question becomes, can the three of them work as a whole or will they have to choose? If so who will be left out.

The narration is done well and the narrator managed to convey the different characters and accent. I loved his 'Irish Grandma'. He brought the story alive. Happy to recommend.
