When a boy who has everything meets a boy who has nothing, life will never be the same again.

Leopold Van Eschen is in big trouble. All the money in the world won’t save him from what he’s done. On the run, desperate to get away, Leo finds himself seeking help from a wrangled bunch of vagabonds he meets in the rail yard.

Leo has no idea his whole world is about to change.

Killian has been homeless and living on the fly for nine years. The closest thing he has to family is a group of fellow freight-hoppers. With the wind at his back and the whole world stretched out before him, he’s happy. It’s not an easy life, but you can’t put a price on freedom.

A chance run-in with a wealthy stranger turns Killian’s world upside down. Leo’s cute and desperate to get away. Without knowing a thing about him, Killian and his friends help Leo escape the city.
It doesn’t take long before Killian realizes the boy he’s slowly falling for has dark secrets.
Who is Leo running from?

What happened to make Leo want to give up a life of wealth to live the life of a vagabond instead?

**End of the Line is the first book in a queer romance series. It’s a story of two men from vastly different worlds who fall in love while on a journey of self-discovery. It’s a story of friendship and found families. No cliffhangers. 100% HEA**

My review: 

I don't know how Nicky do this, but somehow she writes always those stories I want to read. I wanted a book with character with no home, just camping under the stars while traveling the country. And guess what? This book gave me just this. 

I love jumping in stories without knowledge, and I love the surprises and excitement. Leo and Killian's story was excitiement and surprises and I enjoyed the hell out of this book. The whole fraight-hoppers situation and everything around it was so exciting to read about. The community and the slang, and the living in the present thing. This gang Nicky introduced to us are so lovely and can't wait to meet them again and see how their life and HEA will turn out! 

Loved Leo and Killian and their story. The contrast between them, the poor and the rich, the one who lives in the real world and the one who is sheltered by his father. Both had difficult lives, coming out as gay, both had suffered by their families and I loved seeing how everything had changed for them at the end. They got a really beautiful ending.

It was a unique and interesting one, but somehow I missed something that makes a Nicky James book a Nicky James book. That tiny magic I can't describe. 

Highly recommend it. Can't wait the next one!
