Luke and Nelson are next door neighbors and have been best friends since they were five. As they get a little older they begin to explore their sexuality together, always remaining best friends first. When the boys are 13, Luke's family moves to California and their friendship slips away with the distance.
10 years later, the two see each other again in an airport. What are the chances that they are both traveling to the same city, staying in the same hotel? Fate seems to have brought them back together. The boys, now young men quickly pick up where they left off. 10 years have passed and they still can finish each other's sentences. The exploring they did with each as adolescents has now turned into a full blown attraction. Nelson and Luke live across the country from each other, but both have faith that they're building something special. Life intervenes once more and tears them apart. Nelson doesn't know if he'll survive this heartache again.
Fate steps in again. Nelson has made his professional dreams come true and through work, runs into Luke years later. These two have so much between them, good and bad. Love, loss, fear and that same spark are all there. Fate seems to keep pushing them together. Will they take another chance at finally getting their first love right?
This book pulled me right in. I ached for these boys, I cheered for them, I got angry with them! Mostly, I just wanted to see them together! I love second chance stories, this time, I saw what happens when you miss that chance too. First love can still be your last love, if you're willing to fight for it.
Nelson and Luke were best friends and did everything together. When they were kids they fooled around and said it was just experimenting. Nelsn started to have feeling for Luke.
They were torn apart when Luke's family moved away and they promised to keep in touch. Of course they started out keeping that promise but they grew apart.
10 years later while Nelson is on a business trip, he bumps into Luke and they leave off like they were never apart. Time has gone by and both men have grown up but still miss the friendship they had all those years ago.
When they part this time they decide to keep in touch and boy do they. Luke comes to visit Nelson and their chemistry ignites like they were never apart. I enjoyed seeing them together and start to build something even though they live in different states. When Luke goes back home they plan to meet up again but something happens in Luke's life to change those happy plans. It will break you heart to see how hard it is for Luke to give up a future with Nelson to do the right thing. Nelson is crushed and decides to let Luke go.
17 years later and Nelson has gone on with his life and lives his dream of opening a bakery with his boyfriend but he never forgets his love for his best friend Luke. As his relationship is coming to a end he has to deliver a wedding cake. When he goes to the reception he sees no other than Luke. Luke is so surprised to see Nelson that he asks him to come back and catch up.
You can see the sadness in Luke after all this time. Luke is single now and wants Nelson again but can Nelson forgive Luke and forget all the pain. Nelson and Luke work through the issues they have to find their HEA.
Nelson has to learn to forgive Luke after all this time and Luke has to believe he deserves a happy life.
I love that this story spans a lifetime for them and in the end fate brings them together one more time in order for them to get it right.
I enjoyed that we get both Nelsen's and Luke's point of view in this story. SJD wrote this story about young love that lasts a lifetime even though they are apart from each other. Their feelings are so strong that they can't seem to forget about each other. Reviewed for Alpha Book Club.
I really like Nelson’s character, the more sensitive of the two men and far more introspective. I really felt for him as he contended with Luke’s declarations and departure. His anger and eventual capitulation to circumstances was understandable. 1998 was still a time when Luke’s decision was to be expected. Luke's character had too little depth, telling us he had lots of emotions but still coming across as shallow and self absorbed. I might have liked him better if the final part of the story didn't leave me feeling shortchanged, as it kept my interest up to that point. If Luke still felt so strongly about Nelson, why did he do nothing until they accidentally stumbled over each other again? Their reunion scenes did little to elevate the storyline or my emotions. If equal page time was given to establishing them again as a couple and with more romantic content, it could have been a great story. I can't say I recommend this strongly but naturally, other readers may find more substance than I was able to.
