I liked both these guys and I'm really glad that readers got both POVs. There was a lot of back story with Brad and Pax and some of it was heart breaking. Brad kind of knew that Pax had a crush on him from the time they were kids, but he kept his mutual feelings to himself for a lot of reasons. By the time he was ready to admit to himself and others that those feelings existed, it was almost too late.
Because Brad hid not only his feelings but his sexuality from Pax and he wasn't even out to people in his home town, Pax was more than a little hesitant to get his hopes up. He practically discouraged Brad from coming out at all. He knew what Ames Bridge was like and he didn't want Brad to lose the support and respect of the members of the town he grew up in. Brad knew what he was doing... kind of... there was only one person's opinion he cared about.
Ames Bridge may not be a very progressive town, but it's full of interesting characters that balance out the small minded bigotry. I can't wait to see what else Silvia Violet has in store for the residents of this town.
Paxton Marshall has lusted after his brother's best friend since he was a teen and first realized that the feelings he had weren't hero worship but something more. Too bad that Brad is straight – or is he?
I love a good second chance romance. Even though Paxton and Brad were never more than friends when they were young, I still think this one qualifies. It's a very emotional story that starts when they are young then skips ahead to 2015 and skips again to 2017.
Brad isn't out to anyone in the town where he grew up but he wants to have a relationship with Pax and he's decided that his twentieth high school reunion is the perfect time to come out. Pax tries to warn him that it might not go well and that people he thought were his friends wouldn't be happy.
Pax has wanted Brad as long as he can remember but he's afraid. He's afraid that Brad won't want to stay in Ames Bridge. Pax's business is here and so are his aging parents; leaving town isn't something he wants to do.
The connection between the two MCs is something I felt right away. Sylvia Violet's writing had me laughing and crying. I was on pins and needles to see how their relationship would work out.
If you like a good romance, with a bit of heat, I can recommend this story without reservation. I read it straight through in one sitting.
An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

I actually despise Ames Bridge and if I lived there I’d move. There is no one that could make me live where I had to fear insults, slurs, blatant bigotry, and possible harm on a daily basis. I have no idea how Pax does it.
Pax left for college, but he came back home to help out his mother after a stroke. He decided he wanted/needed to stay for good.
Brad was Pax’s brother, Rob’s, best friend growing up. Pax was Brad’s first boy crush and vice versa, but Brad kept himself firmly from anyone in Ames Bridge in the closet until 5 years ago. Brad lives in Chicago and is a successful businessman. Brad comes back to Ames Bridges for his 20th High School reunion and what a reunion it is, with sports dinners, “hanging with the guys”, and one of high schools famous events.
Brad really took me a while to get warmed up to, for some reason. I liked Pax from the first book, but Brad not so much. To me, he just doesn’t get it. He doesn’t get the insults hurled thrown all the time. He doesn’t get putting on invisible armor. He doesn’t get how life really is in Ames Bridges as a gay man. I felt like Pax had valid concerns that should have been addressed more, instead of running away from the hard answers or getting mad they’re being asked.
I kind of missed the townspeople in this one, well the non-homophobic ones. I felt like it was just Brad and Pax for too much of it and I wanted to see them out together more. Maybe show Brad what life is truly like there?
Brad and Pax have been wanting each other for twenty years. Is it too late? Can a high school crush last? Can you trust that it’s really love? Will Pax let himself have what he wants? Will Brad take the easy way out and go back to Chicago or will he stay and face Ames Bridge with Pax?
Hmm…do I see Jack’s story in the future? He intrigues me. What about Luke’s?
