The One Who Saves Me (Home #6) by Cardeno C.

At fourteen, Andrew Thompson and Caleb Lakes become best friends. As the years pass, they stand by each other through family trauma, school, and the start of their careers. They share their first sexual experiences, learning and experimenting, and they talk each other through countless dates and breakups.

Decades of trust and loyalty build a deep and abiding friendship, one that surpasses any relationship in their lives. But when the parameters of their unique friendship change, neither man knows how to break out of their established roles to build something new. After all, boyfriends come and go, but best friends are forever.

Review by Paulina Woods

Five Stars

I have never thought friends with benefits could move to anything more but Andrew and Caleb proved me wrong.


This is an interesting book because the focus isn't on trying to overcome trauma but on taking a friendship based on love and trust and making it more. From the first page to the last you follow these two men as they discover their sexuality and grow up into strong men.


As I watched them both with different men I wanted to scream at them that they were throwing away a sure thing. They were meant to be together but their stupid idea about friendship kept getting in the way.
