Review: When Sean Loves Rusty (Bayou Boys #1-5 collection) by Chris Cox
Best friends since grade school, lovers since high school, Sean Delahunt and Dusty 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 a 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?

**I received this book free for review from the author through the DBML (Don't Buy My Love) program in the M/M Romance group on Goodreads.**
This is the first book I have read from Chris Cox and I will be returning for more. I loved Rusty and Sean! The writing just flowed and I couldn't have asked for a better story. I adore a good friends to lovers story and while Sean and Rusty are already in a relationship they started as friends first in the back story.
Sean has a lot of issues that continue to plague him through out this book, Rusty is there for him every step of the way and their relationship just grows stronger because of it. Despite Sean holding back, Rusty's family is a strong part of his healing. I don't want to spoil any part of this book, it just needs to be read and enjoyed by the masses. I for one could not put it down, I read it from cover to cover in one sitting!
