Title: All that Shimmers (Piece Us Back Together)
Author Name: Raine O’Tierney
Publication Date & Length: May 6, 2015 — 90 pages


Beau Bell is a former Olympic hopeful, left paralyzed from the waist down after a car accident. He has every reason in the world to be pissed off and miserable, yet he’s training for the Paralympics Men’s 100m—S6 division. The chair? Just a part of who he is now. Beau’s attitude is golden. If only he could contend with this one little issue: errant erections and no way to relieve them!

Nikša Meríc is a lonely scientist and really bad poet living underneath the old building where he does his research. Every night he watches his neighbor through his basement window as he undresses in his wheelchair. Although there is no apparent reason for Nikša to be unhappy, he’s struggled with depression his whole life and has tried to kill himself on multiple occasions.

When Beau proposes that his “voyeur” come over and help him experiment with the erections he can’t actually feel, the relationship they build is a sexual one. But the relationship they need is one that will heal each other’s hearts as well.

This was an absolutely amazing story. Very motivational and uplifting from start to finish.
Both the main men have been through a lot (one physically, one mentally) and both have different ways of coping. One having lost the use of his legs, the other has mentally crippling thoughts.
I think it could’ve been drawn out more so we learned exactly what happened to Beau to lose his mobility, what happens in the future and more about Nicky, but ultimately I loved that we got the meat of the story, we weren’t being dragged along through anything. It was the two men dealing with the beginning of a difficult and unusual relationship.
I hope to get my hands on more of Ms. Tierney’s work for sure because it was so wel written, not to mention good feeling inducing.
