2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Guy With The Suitcase by Chris Ethan (319-08-25-2016)

I must admit, this was a very heartfelt and emotional story. The caring these two extremely flawed characters show toward each other is quite endearing. The story ran smoothly and gave us a view of what can happen and does happen to young men and women in this world when the parents or stepparents are not accepting. At first, I wasn't sure where the story was going, but I'm sure glad it went as it did. Loved the MCs and the attention they paid to each other. Very satisfying end. I really enjoyed their journey together.

Pierce is homeless. Young and strong-willed Pierce has been living in the streets of New York City for six months, since his parents kicked him out of their perfect, Christian, suburban house. Pierce is gay. And he is suffering the consequences for being true to himself. Rafe is homeless. He is also sick. Impressionable, but far from innocent, Rafe ran away from home almost a year ago. His sickness is slowly killing him. But Rafe is not a hopeless case. He has learned to get by. Nights of paid passion turn to sheltering warmth from the imminent New York winter. And then there's a suitcase. Pierce's suitcase, which holds secrets from everyone including its owner. When their worlds collide, their lives intertwine and when the world seems bent on bringing the two souls to their knees, fate has other plans for them. Caution: Contains adult language, New York City streets, tough life choices, sexual tension, stubborn brutes and swoon-worthy romance.
