Bully Rescue By: Ki Brightly Narrated by: Chris Boykin

Bully Rescue tears at your heart.  How a mistake can set the path of a persons life making them live a life they never wanted?

From the blurb:

The washed-up fighter who can’t play nice:
Peter Gaffin can be downright vicious, even while using a wheelchair. For years, the former back-alley boxer has not only been terrified men from his past would exact their vengeance, but also of his
sexuality. After an incident with the cops, Peter is on his way to prison. Behind bars, he won’t be able to repress his fears by being a reclusive alcoholic—or hide himself from the men who once preyed on him.

The protective prison guard:
Drew Greene has been working at Trident Falls Correctional for one reason: to keep track of the facility’s most dangerous inmate. The day Peter arrives at the prison, Drew’s solitary mission becomes something more. Peter gradually charms him, and he wants to keep Peter safe. When he learns they share a dark secret, one that has ruled and ruined both their lives, Drew’s horror makes him even more determined to protect Peter.

Targeted by their past:
Things look up when Peter is released from prison. Drew takes Peter home and helps him finish his long physical recovery that alcoholism derailed. Stronger and happier, Peter is ready to move on with Drew and try to repair the damage he caused. There is only one problem—Peter and Drew aren’t able to outrun their past for long. Can they come together to withstand the fallout from the truths they reveal, or will they both end up in prison…or worse, dead?

Bully Rescue portrays a hate group that has been invented. The people in the hate group are not good, and are not presented as such. However, Bully Rescue does explore some of the ways individuals might enter and leave those types of harmful associations. As the author, I do not condone or support the ideologies or activities of any hate-based organizations, and this book is in no way meant to romanticize them. Please do not read Bully Rescue if you’re sensitive to this type of material.

Reedkaye's Review:

This story starts with a young guy hoping for a relationship and finds himself not only used but forced into a life he never would have chosen. After awhile he becomes part of that life until situations change and he is forced to examine his choices.  

There is so much to this story. There is Peter and his son Angel. There is his relationships and his scares and decisions. Bully Rescue is a story I became invested in from the beginning till the end. This is a heart breaker looking at Peter’s life.  

The narration by Chris Boykin made the characters visible and human and added to the story.
