For Ricky “Stoli” Branson, the stars were on his side. Social Sinners was headlining their first sold out US tour. Radio stations across the states were playing their songs, and he’d won the heart of the man he loved.

Everything was going great, or so he foolishly believed…

When an accident has them burying one of their own and leaves another fighting for his life, Stoli questions his beliefs. Or lack thereof.

“Have faith,” his mother tells him. But how can you have faith in something that threatens to take away your only reason for breathing?


In The Shadows by T.L. Travis

The Social Sinners, Joseph “Joey” and Ricky “Stoli”, never remembering a time when they weren’t friends. Mick “Mickey” and Ethan “Diamond” joining them in high school. Outcasts for various reasons, when they started their garage band their name choice became obvious to them.

Joey and Stoli are in love. Even though they have finally declared their love for each other, both men are tentative with the relationship. With all their families firmly supporting them, they begin to realize maybe they can have it all. Joey told Stoli “It always should of been you”.

As they explore their new feelings they head out on the road for their first headlining tour. Everything is slotting into place. Love, family, friends, music, giving them an all time high. Their world just getting better and better.

When the unthinkable happens they will all need each other to get through it. Proof that family is paramount.

This book felt kind of like a fairytale, everything going perfect for the Sinners. Their little world giving them everything they wanted and needed. Even with the sadness, the book still had that happy ending quality. I enjoyed it but it just didn’t have the gritty essence that the first book had.
