Having lost both of my parents, the ebb and flow of painful grief that Archer moves through felt immediate, intense, and most importantly, very, very real. I ached right along with him. The journey that both of them take through grief felt almost too private to read, yet was so important to who they are as individuals and, ultimately, as a couple.
I read this book in one sitting, because it flowed along so lyrically that I couldn't bear to put it down. It would be like stopping a beautiful piece of music, mid note. But then I sat on it for 24 hours before writing this review, because I was so personally invested that I wanted to keep it to myself for a little while. To hold on to my feelings, tight against my chest, and remember and savor them, before putting them down in public words.
I don't think I've come close to doing this book justice, but I needed to try and express how truly wonderful it is. Five heartfelt, heart aching stars.
There is not one thing I don't like about this whole deal here. The storyline - unbelievably catching and emotional and heartbreaking in the best possible way. The characters multi-dimensional and real. Oh, and smoking hot as well.
The way Ms. Summers writes - well, I'm simply in love with her writing style. And then there are those little thing that I just love about my M/M stories: the age difference, the slow burn, the reluctance and indecision. What also made this story even more interesting in my opinion was the three year time gap which made the story more believable and not rushed. I have to say Ms. Nash Summers found another devoted reader in me. Yay for me ;-)
-The tone of the story. Nash Summers’ writing here has a quiet, melancholy, poetic feel to it that I love. The tone and pace matched the characters and their story perfectly.
-The characters. They were fleshed out and experienced character growth as the story progressed.
-Relationship development. If you’ve read my reviews you know I love a slow burn, and this is one of the best I’ve ever read. From the start, their relationship never felt paternal; Archer has been through so much that he’s an old soul at heart. Theirs was a friendship that grew into more, and while those feelings were growing, they stole my breath.
-Angst. This story was emotional and packed a punch at times, but it never felt so overwhelming I thought about taking a break.
-The time lapse. When you read it (and you all need to), you will know what I mean.
-The climax was perfectly executed. There’s nothing I hate more than a drawn out, overdramatic conflict- not so here.
-The end. They’re in it for the long haul, and I would love to read a Christmas novella-I practically salivate at the idea.
Do I have any negatives? I don’t; this was perfect.
There’s no way I could do this book justice in a review. It’s beautiful and heartfelt and one you should read and experience for yourself.
This is going on my Top Ten for the year. 5+ Stars!
