|At the age of 21, Dominic was privileged, engaged to be
married, confused and very unhappy. As the son of a
senator, he was expected to marry into a good family and
produce an heir, but before fulfilling his obligations,
Dominic wanted to be true to himself if only for one night.
After meeting Andre Jarvis, a laborer of a lower social
status hired to prepare Dominic's backyard for his upcoming
wedding, Dominic finds himself crossing the border of his
gated community in hopes of seeing the man again.
Andre, felt something between Dominic and himself, he
knew it couldn't amount to anything but he wasn't able to
stop himself from giving Dominic his phone number in hopes
that he would call. Falling in love with him was
definitely not part of the plan, but from the first kiss
Andre knew it was unavoidable.
Borderline was a terrific story about social
status and being true to ones self. Andre and Dominic found
something special between them but it was doomed before it
started. Dominic fell in love with Andre but he was too
afraid to oppose his father to pursue Andre for more than
physical gratification. The pressure to live up to the life
his father mapped out for him, which included marrying his
childhood friend and fathering their son, was too much for
Dominic to overcome. In the midst of being what others
needed him to be he was losing himself and turning into
someone he could no longer look in the mirror and
recognize. Andre knew it was a mistake to get involved with
Dominic but he couldn't help himself. He tried desperately
to move on, but Dominic was hard for him to forget. Like
any good love story Borderline has angst that
will make your heart hurt and beautiful tender moments of
loving that will have you shedding a few tears.
