In this short story, we are introduced to Scott and Russell who are best friends. Scott, who happens to be gay, has been in love with Russell since they first met. However he's not sure if said feelings are reciprocated - despite the lingering looks and somewhat awkward encounters between them - especially given that Russell appears to be straight. Things finally come to a head at Russell's rehearsal wedding which is where the story takes place.
I loved that, even though this was a short story, it still managed to convey a host of emotions and pack a punch. I was able to feel Scott's frustration and desire - even Russell's conflict. While I may not have agreed with their choices, I think given time (hint hint James), they would have both set about rectifying the consequences of their actions.
If you're looking for a book where the love is messy and not straightforward, this is your book. If you're looking for a book that will tug at your heartstrings and leave you wanting more, this is your book. If you're looking for a short fulfilling read, this is your book as well.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, James, you're a very talented author.
Congrats on yet another fabulous book.
struggling, Scott finally has Russell alone at a very pivotal time in Russell life. Scott decides to just go for it. The encounter did not
go as planned. Then with the help from a friend Scott tries again and this time it was worth it. This little short story was well written and
I loved it. Perseverance and finally acceptance is what this book showed. This is my second book I have read by James and I looking
forward to more from him. I read a lot of M/M stories and this one did not disappoint.
I want to know more about Scott and Russell's story, the earlier years and specially the AFTER! After all this drama!
Some people mention that Scott might not be the nicest person and I do understand why, but I thought the idea was that he was building up for years all this non-corresponded love. And it comes to a point of "it's now or never". It was a breaking point for him. And in the end I would think that Russell is going to be very thankful that Scott did what he did :D
James Lee Hard is truly a story teller, he knows how to get the reader addicted to his narratives. He knows when to insert the drama bits, the jokes.
I'm really looking forward to read more of his stuff.
And I'm one of the people that will sign a petition to see a sequel to this short!
There's hell to pay what with how this story ends the way it does... I can only imagine ><
It's time for a reality-check and a whole lotta dealing with the aftermath of the untimely clusterfck.
And then try to be happy. It's only fair. For everyone involved.
Two men, friends since college one having a incredible crush and other giving off the vibes that tells him to finally go for it. Unfortunately Tabitha is in the mix thinking that Russell was going to be her husband but when reality sets in the two men are meant to be together but is it too late.
