An angel among us
RJ Scott is well-known for sensitive, steamy and beautiful M/M love stories - deservedly so. The Bucket List is a prime example. It starts with a boy - Andrew - who is loyal to his best friend Mark, and to his younger brother, Jason the science nerd. He stands up for them when they are bullied. He keeps their confidences. He hurts when Mark moves away and doesn't stay in touch. But Andrew grows up, forgives his absent friend, champions his brother when he comes out, marries the woman he adores, and has a little son. Then Andrew dies. He leaves behind a "Bucket List" for his brother Jason - all the things he wanted to do and see, and share with his son. He wants Jason to do these things in his stead, to keep his dreams and his memories alive for his widow and little boy. First item on the list? Find Mark, and the two of them are to attend Andrew's high school reunion in his place. A grieving Jason begins, reluctantly, to fulfill his brother's last request. That list proves to be a life-altering catalyst, bringing love, hope, and justice to him, to Mark, and to others in their one-horse boyhood hometown. It's a sad-sweet story that feels solid and real, and one that deserves to be read and read again. I received an ARC of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
