The Nothingness of Ben by Brad Boney

Ben Walsh is well on his way to becoming one of Manhattan’s top litigators, with a gorgeous boyfriend and friends on the A-list. His life is perfect until he gets a phone call that brings it all crashing down: a car accident takes his parents, and now he must return to Austin to raise three teenage brothers he barely knows.

During the funeral, Ben meets Travis Atwood, the redneck neighbor with a huge heart. Their relationship initially runs hot and cold, from contentious to flirtatious, but when the weight of responsibility starts wearing on Ben, he turns to Travis, and the pressure shapes their friendship into something that feels a lot like love. Ben thinks he’s found a way to have his old life, his new life, and Travis too, but love isn’t always easy. Will he learn to recognize that sometimes the worst thing imaginable can lead him to the place he was meant to be?

My review:
Because sometimes, and this is really important, the worst possible thing imaginable leads you to the place you were meant to be all along. Even in the most dire of times, life gives you a reason to give thanks.” 
Brad Boney, The Nothingness of Ben
A friend gave me this m/m and said you have to read this.  So I did.  Thanks Betty.  The Nothingness of Ben by Brad Boney is sweet, heart wrenching, often humorous and has some kinky hot sex.  And while it took me a bit to warm up to the main character Ben Walsh his brothers and Travis kept me reading so that by the end I could honestly say that I fell for Ben and finally saw in him what Travis and the boys did.
