The hallways are a scary place for a new relationship -- with Eddie and the J's targeting Luke every way they can.

It doesn't help one little bit when Ryan Kitchener, the boy who attacked Luke when he was younger, pays a visit to Luke's house. He leaves a message that could change the growing love between Cameron and Luke for ever.

Book Review

'Love is in the Message' by RJ Scott is the third book in the 'Love is in the...' series which follows Luke and Cameron through the trials and tribulations of two teenaged young men in love.

A situation arises where Luke is forced to face demons which have haunted him in the past and have kept him in passive mode. These circumstances also afford him an opportunity for forgiveness and closure. As the homophobic threats escalate, Luke is forced to take a stand, regardless of the consequences. The time for taking the path of least resistance has passed.

Cameron and his friends and family are behind him all the way, just as they have always been. Cameron continues to be the touchstone in Luke's life providing support and love. He once again proves how sincere he is about his feelings for Luke and how perfect he is for him.

Even though it has the most angst of the three volumes, this is my favorite book of the series. I would be proud to have these two brave, sensitive, caring young men as my sons. This isn't a standalone book. The series must be read sequentially in order to make sense, but it’s well worth it. I'd recommend it to everyone, especially to young adults and their families. RJ's message of being brave enough to be true to yourself is an important and timely one which applies not only to teens, but to us all. Thanks, RJ, for sharing Luke and Cameron's inspiring story with us. By the way, will we get to see how they fare in college and beyond?
