Desperate Trails by Mila A. Ballentine ~Review~

Author: Mila A. Ballentine

Genre: Romance / Suspense / Mystery

Audience: 18 + 

If the opportunity arose, Drew Tanner would probably trade places with just about anyone. He wasn’t a stranger to misery, but he had an unquenchable need for acceptance that spanned his entire childhood leading up to the present. Throughout that time, he saw how elusive and fickle the nature of love could be, and experienced unyielding misfortunes until a newfound friend made those hellish moments somehow bearable.
Despite his new friendship, things at home continue to deteriorate, making it difficult for him to cope with the situation, let alone breathe. But, an opportune moment arises out of his suffering that will potentially change the course of the life he’s known and he’ll have to decide if he wants to continue living this way or choose a new path, a decision that could change his life forever. Whatever he decides, Drew’s life is about to change, and there is no guarantee that his life will change for the better.

This one had me from the beginning. I really felt for Drew. Dwight is just a mean and nasty person! 
When Drew decides to leave, he doesn't have an easy go of it. Hard work and doing without becomes something he has to push through. But he never gives up. As we watch two childhood friends take their journey into adulthood, we are gripped with emotions and a thrilling ride as they make not always the best decisions. A great love story! Looking forward to more work from the author!
