This is the MM Romance raw and gritty story of Tutti Fruitti Rudi by S.M.Franklin. It's heart wrenching and heartbreaking. It's a car wreck you can't look away from. It's a rollercoaster ride of emotion, it's a book you'll be glad you chose. More
Rudi narrates this tale and it's anything but fluffy. He's trying so hard to give some sort of life to his baby sister, but his circumstances are overwhelming. His mother is a drug addict so deep in the throes of addiction she's neglected everything, including herself. She's allowed people to abuse herself and Rudi and goes so far as to try to pimp him out in order to score another hit. Rudi does what it takes to survive, and while he may be damaged, he's not broken. He has a lot of fight in him and refuses to give up. Enter Jay, who Rudi finds beaten badly in an unlit area of a park, for being gay. As a thank you, Jay's family invites him to supper and an attraction is sparked. But the romance isn't hot and heavy, in fact it almost takes a back seat to the chaos that is Rudi's life. Fear not, their moments, especially the steamy ending, are well worth the wait.
