Heart of the Race - Mary Calmes 3.65*I enjoyed this DD story, of course Mary Calmes is a reliable read, I know what I'm going to get. Brian, a foster child is by sheer luck taken in by a wonderful family. Varro, the boy he grows up with, the boy he grows to love is as much of a joy as he is a burden.Brian can't seem to move on because his thoughts and heart all turn on Varro, so he tries to avoid him, but Varro needs and loves Brian, just as much, just not in the same way.The men really know each other, so I was a little surprised it took Varro so long to realize that maybe the feelings he has for Brian are more than brotherly love.But it's a sweet sappy loving story and I gobbled it right up and it has a dog, so all is well.
