Ben works at a local restaurant to pay his bills and he plays in a band. He is just a regular guy who is trying to make a living. However, there is one thing that sets Ben apart. He has a soft spot for strays, whether of the animal or human variety. He cannot turn down someone in need. So when he realizes that the belligerent and skittish young man who literally fell in his path needs help-Ben’s instinct is to come to the rescue.


Eric has learned the hard way that the only person he can depend on his himself. He has experienced more than his fair share of pain and loss. So when a stranger offers to take him home and take care of him he is suspicious to say the least. However, there is something about Ben that leads Eric to trust him against his better judgment.

 

Ben quickly realizes that Eric is an extremely damaged individual. But Eric’s vulnerability and beauty strike a cord within him that he cannot ignore. Eric has been alone for a very long time. The special care that Ben gives him so effortlessly begins to break down the wall that he had build around his heart.

 

This is one of the best books I have ever read. Ally Blue has created a story that is rich in emotion and realism. The characters in this novel felt so real to me. I imagined I could reach out and touch them. The subject matter is often difficult to read. The characters pain felt so raw there were times I had to stop and take a breather. Yet there was a ring of truth to every word of this novel.

 

I give the author so much credit for daring to go where few romance writers would. This story is a loving tribute to all of the victims of abuse and violence in our society. This is a story of pain and loss but more importantly it is the story of the ultimate redemptive and healing powers of love. FORGOTTEN SONG by Ally Blue is a beautifully written, incredibly moving and burning hot romance.   While this book was published in 2005 it grows more relevant with every passing day. This is a story I will be reading again and again. I highly recommend this book.
