    4. Hope Truth Recovery.This one is about the journey of all three, but mostly This one This one s about hope.So often in male male fiction I encounter what I like to call Ye Olde Typical Tropes of Angst being gay, coming out, overcoming abuse or neglect, being ostracized, etc And there s absolutely nothing wrong with that Thank God people are writing books about finding love and lives despite the odds and giving voices to people and issues who and that are not heard often enough.I ve also read my f [...]

    5. Owen is at rock bottom He has lost his driver s license due DUI, job and previous partner, he s now reduced to back to basics and starting all over again This book deals with the recovery process, the trials and tribulations that people go through trying to get over their addictions or problems.For me this book was an uplifting book that deals with the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel One of getting to grips with one s demons and taking control of your own life rather than letting somet [...]

    7. The fascination with this novel lies in how the problem of addiction and the beauty of romance come together so perfectly without making this story the usual read.The reason for this comes from the exceptional characters Owen and Sebastian as well as the way AF Henley handled both subjects of addiction and love He walked a fine line here and avoided clich in a brilliant way Although an addiction rarely comes from nowhere, AF Henley did an awesome job on simply placing blame Instead he makes Owen [...]

    9. 2.5 starsI can appreciate the author s skill in writing a book that s not another cookie cutter romance, but this story was heavy and mind numbing Owen s inner monologues were constant and tedious Baba grew on me, but initially his character seemed off, an odd mix of Dalai Lama and quirky hipster I m not sure the conflict with Owen s sponsor was necessary why infuse a quiet story with manufactured drama Some of the conversations, particularly between Owen and his mom, felt forced the language wa [...]

    10. Owen is a recovering alcoholic, he s lost his job, his partner and has been declared bankrupt He s had to move to a new apartment which is up forty two stairs and the only potential good thing in his life is the enigmatic, purple haired Sebastian, his down stairs neighbour Both men have their problens and no one in Owen s life is supportive of the relationship but somehow they work This is not an easy read and a lot of issues are raised but somehow it never feels too heavy and Sebastian is like [...]

    12. From the looks of it, finding short, good reads, lately, has become a specialty of mine Not only did the cover grabbed my attention I have a thing for mysterious looking covers , but the m m theme drew me in as well What we have here is not an erotica, not a story revolving around the hot sex the two male leads have, but a bumpy journey towards salvation The story is told from the point of view of Owen while he struggles through an alcohol addiction I ve never personally met anyone who went thro [...]

    13. Forty two Stairs is a story about Owen who is struggling to overcome his alcohol addiction and he meets Sebastian Baba who ends up showing Owen how to look up and see the positives in his life At the start of the book I was worried that the book would be a downer but AF Henley s writing is such that although the topic is a tough one, she has written an uplifting character in Baba and for me he is the star of the book I enjoyed the relationship that develops between Owen and Baba, I liked Baba s [...]

    14.

    15. My rating is a 9 out of 10.Leave it to A F Henley to twist guts and unleash butterflies, cause random bouts of enraged ranting, and overall wish one had the ability to pull a certain character off the pages and strangle him to death E Books, thankfully, are a lot harder to mangle than physical copies The full review can be found HERE Spoiler warning after the link 3

    16. Loved it Hated it Too short, but somehow if it was longer it would be too long Why does this author do this to me It s not fair I just wanted a good short book with steamy friskiness What s with all of the emotions I have to feel along the way Huh What s that all about Anyway, there is a lot to enjoy about this book And a lot to be frustrated about xD All in all, I loved it.Vague enough for you

    17. Most abrupt ending ever That was my first thought when I finished reading Forty Two Stairs The story just stopped I was sure it had to be because I had an ARC and it was missing the last few pages This was not the case It just ended I have to hope that A.F Henley intends to write a sequel, but if so, it will need to pick up immediately with the next sentence which was sorely lacking in Forty Two Stairs.Owen is at the lowest point in his life, a repeat DUI has resulted in his losing everything hi [...]
