Blurb
When a brutal attack from a jealous competitor
leaves Noah Strauss, darling of the modeling world, physically scarred and
emotionally damaged, he quits the runway to become a psychologist. Using his
contacts from his time in the spotlight, he creates One Call Away, a radio show
dedicated to gay men looking for love, advice or someone to talk to. But with
secrets of his own and a mother who refuses to understand the career path he’s
chosen, the one person Noah can’t seem to help is himself.
On a drunken dare from the senior partner’s grandson, Oren Leavitt calls Noah’s
radio show, pretending to be gay. Only Oren isn’t certain if he’s pretending.
He’s left his strict Orthodox Jewish upbringing behind, but the guilt remains.
Guilt that his actions have prevented his sister from finding a husband and
guilt that he’s failed his parents. Talking to “Dr. Noah” helps, and
as he finds himself calling the man again and again, he knows he must be
honest. But Oren is unsure if he’s lying to Noah or himself.For Noah, trust is paramount; he’s been deceived in his personal and
professional life and while he desperately wants to help Oren, he also finds
himself falling for the sweet and tortured man. Oren is trapped: he risks
losing his job and more importantly the love and security of his family but
knows he can’t hide if if wants to be with Noah. When unresolved heartaches
from the past rise up to control the present, Noah and Oren discover that love
often comes from the most unexpected places, and sometimes a call for help not
only saves a life, it can be a new and beautiful beginning.

Review 

I have to say that Noah and Oren surprised me. I wasn’t sure what to expect really. I mean, Oren is a 28 year man who has yet to admit who he is to himself, let alone others. Noah is an out and proud gay man with nothing to hide but the scars of his past.
Oren is living a life he loathes, working at a job he hates, working with people who despise him and he detests. He desperately wants to be happy with himself, with life and in love.

When these two meet they are drawn together, but pasts and current hang-ups initially prevent the two from being together. But, once they get past that, and get to know each other, the relationship that blossoms is beautiful and sweet, heartbreaking and heart healing.

What Oren realizes is that his fears are unfounded with his family. While they are deeply involved in the Jewish culture, their love for their children is stronger than he gave them credit for. They do not disown him, they embrace him and love him for who he is. He also realizes there are more people out there that accept him, and once he realizes the toxic environment that is his current job, he makes the move to take care of himself by removing that from his life. Of course, it was not without an act of disgusting behavior from a co-worker, but he handled it appropriately.

All in all, I enjoyed this book. Oren’s struggles broke my heart, but I was so glad he found the strength to come out to everyone around him and so glad that he and Noah, healed each other, in a sense.
