Tired, hungry and cold, eighteen-year-old orphan Kai Turner must resort to digging in the trash cans for food and sleeping on the streets just to survive. Kicked out of the home of his foster parents when his state support check ran out, Kai now has to fend for himself with just a backpack filled with his only belongs.

How was he going to get a job with just a high school diploma, no marketable skills, and no roof over his head? It would be easier just to walk out in a path of a car and just end it all.

Giancarlo Rossi took one look at the unconscious youth lying on the sidewalk where he’d fell and wondered how someone so young could have ended up homeless. He’d been watching him begging for money most of the day and huddling in corners the rest of the time to escape the frosty November weather in just a threadbare jacket.

Something in his heart broke. What parent in their right mind could just throw away a child?


Thanks for Everything by author Shawn Bailey is really sweet contemporary romance. Giancarlo has the biggest heart.  He is a chef he owns his own restaurants. He has money. He still has compassion for someone who was hurt and homeless. It doesn’t hurt that he is also attracted to the man too. But I liked he was willing to over look the cover and get to know the man under it.
Kai he was kicked out by his foster parents when the checks stopped coming. Been on the streets for about a year. He doesn’t want to sell his body to eat, but he isn’t sure what he is going to do. He has been on the streets for about a year now.
Gian takes him in heals his body. But he has harder time getting Kai to believe that someone like Gian would be attracted to him. I loved watching these two get to know each other and find love along the way.
I like that the story is not rushed. The pace of this book is believable.  I really think anyone who is a true romantic at heart will love this book as much as I do.  I hope to read many more books with Gian’s brothers in them. I think they would be fun, romantic and well worth the read.
