Not all things that glitter are made of gold.
My name is Paul Kian McKinnon. I grew up with upper class, wealthy parents who had successful jobs, the best education money could buy, friends in all the most popular circles, and of course ideal grades. My good fortune spilled over into my adult life. To most people my life is what you would call privileged. At first glance you would think I have everything together, healthy bank account, beautiful house, good job, and great friends. Everything is perfect, until… The door to the outside world closes.
At home everything falls apart. In this place, I am my most vulnerable. Every night I try silence my inner demons in a sea of sleeping pills and alcohol, but sometimes that isn’t enough. Sometimes it gets to be too much and I need to do more than simply just dull the anxiety, pain, and the all-encompassing numbness. Yes, I know it’s not healthy, but it’s all I have… Well that and my brothers, the Misfits as we are called.
We were all brought together thanks to the kindness of Jethro-Elijah Shepard. Through his compassionate heart and stern beliefs, we’ve grown up together into strong, loyal, friends. We’ve celebrated each other’s wins, as well as comforting each other in our loses. Those men have been more of a family to me than my own flesh and blood, and yet I still can’t bring myself to share the darkest parts of me. They won’t understand because they see me just as the rest of the world does… Perfect.
What would happen if I dropped the mask and let it splinter like the pieces of my broken soul?
Would they save me?
The better question is… Do I want to save myself, or do I just want to fade away into the abyss of pain and suffering?
Am I ready to peel away the beautiful covering and let them look at the ugliness underneath?
In order to find out you’ll have to read my story, and trust me when I say… it won’t be for the faint of heart.
(This is the Second book in the Brotherhood of Misfits series. It can be a stand alone BUT to full get to know the characters it is best to read Book One.)

This is one of those series that I wish I waited until all the books were published to read. There is important information that I can’t seem to remember from book 1 and IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY! Needless (I think) to say I LOVED this book. I read it in less than 24 hours, could not put it down. It was an emotional read at times (most of it) and could have some triggers (suicide, despicable parents) but it was well done. I love, love, LOVE Khai’s characters, (well there were two I didn’t like, but that is beside the point). The guys are as strong as ever and band together when a friend is in need. Lonny and Seven still have their secrets, but the reader learns a bit more, although not enough in my opinion. What can I say, I’m impatient. This book hints at another brother in trouble for the next book, but not much of a clue as to who (I have it narrowed down to two) and I can’t wait to see who it is and what more we will find out. Come on Khai, WRITE!!! I give this book 5 stars.
