Book Blurb

In this final chapter of Matt and Thomas's love story, their precious baby daughter faces death until an unexpected rescuer saves her…

Matt and Thomas have the life of their dreams. Successful writers and movie producers, they are the proud parents of baby Rose Elise Carter who is a dream child until she suddenly becomes gravely ill. Diagnosed with a rare bone marrow disease, none of their family members are compatible donors for the little girl. Her surrogate mom has disappeared and can't be found. Rose's cousin Daphne is a match but is deemed too young to withstand the painful donor process.

When Matt bumps into Thomas's long-lost love, Daniel, in a fit of torment he confesses their nightmare. Daniel offers to submit himself. He's a match. Will Thomas fall once again for Daniel or will love, like Black Point, belong to Matt…forever?

Book Review

Like so many books A.J. and D.J. write, whether alone or together, ‘Black Point Forever’ is so much more than an amazing love story. The topic of a child's illness is a tough one to do justice to - but these two authors manage to write about it with compassion and an accuracy that held me spellbound.

What captured me wasn't just the fact that I feel as if I know Matt, Thomas and their family like close friends after reading about their lives in the five previous books. It was also more than the topic of a deadly disease suddenly threatening their daughter's life and their happiness. What made me feel as if I was suffering through it all myself, as if one of my nieces was affected, was the depth of emotion A.J. and D.J. managed to convey.

The way Matt and Thomas react, what they go through and how they deal with the situation was so realistic that I thought my heart would break. The initial determination to stick it out together, followed by the disillusion as a donor cannot be found, and the beginning of the almost unavoidable breaking apart as each partner finds different ways of dealing (or not dealing) with the situation was utterly realistic. I have rarely cried so much when reading a book, was rarely so impatient to find out how it all ended. And yes, I was rarely so relieved that there was a happy ending. In fact, through many pages of the book that hope was the only thought that enabled me to even keep reading.

This is a truly amazing story, one that fits well with the rest of the series, and yet, is also in a class all on its own. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the human condition and in finding out what it might be like to be confronted with utter hopelessness and bone-chilling fear. Bravo A.J. and D.J.!!!
