Blurb: 2nd Edition

At fourteen, Andrew Thompson and Caleb Lakes become best friends. As the years pass, they stand by each other through family trauma, school, and the start of their careers. They share their first sexual experiences, learning and experimenting, and they talk each other through countless dates and breakups.

Decades of trust and loyalty build a deep and abiding friendship, one that surpasses any relationship in their lives. But when the parameters of their unique friendship change, neither man knows how to break out of their established roles to build something new. After all, boyfriends come and go, but best friends are forever.


Review: Oh, how I love Cardeno C.’s work. I love the characters, love the sex, love the HEAs and the slow build up to that happiness.

The One Who Saves Me has all the above components. It takes decades to build this relationship; decades of boyfriends, family, and, most of all, decades of learning to trust. This story is so intense, and Cardeno C.’s amazing storytelling keeps you going until the end, when all is explained. And what an explanation it was. I had trouble breathing as Caleb was describing and touching each of the tattoos and piercings Andrew had gotten over the years, which is intertwined with some of the best sex ever written in a story.

This amazingly frustrating journey follows the lives of two young men, one a genius following his Dad’s dream of becoming a doctor, the other following his own dreams of becoming a photographer. What stays consistent throughout the journey is the friendship that remains true, and the side benefit of no-strings-attached sex . The frustrating part for me was how long it took for both of them to realize that they belonged together, and to stop looking for “the one”. But, as I mentioned earlier, it was really worth the wait.

Read the Home series. Read all of Cardeno C. Books. Enjoy the sex. Enjoy the love. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
