Ivo and Henry made my heart SO DAMN FULL! Their friendship is built on unyielding unconditional love, plain and simple. A foundation of acceptance, support and the knowledge that you never need to be anything other than your true self.
I've never met anyone like him. I've never met anyone who I can be totally myself with. He's the person I've always been closest to throughout my life. He's the one I turn to for everything because I get everything back.
I swear, between the pining and the banter, I think I highlighted most of this book! I was so in love with these two. From the very first chapter, you absolutely feel the connection Ivo and Henry have. Yes, I'm not gonna lie, the stepbrothers situation creeped me out, and that didn't change any time it was mentioned. From the first page to the last, I cringed when it was brought up...but I pushed the feelings away, because this book was so much more than a brief couple of years in Ivo and Henry's life where that label applied.
"The smell of you is home to me."
I gobbled up the unbelievable yearning they have for each other and the crippling fear of ruining the most important relationship they have with anyone in their life. Everyone sees the inevitability of Ivo and Henry belonging together...but that fear, it's a tough hurdle to jump over.
"You're so busy standing back from him, you haven't seen that for the first time he's waiting for you to move forward. One tiny step and you'd see."
Lily Morton does a great job of skirting that line of frustration with Ivo and Henry. You want to throttle them to open their eyes, take the leap, yell and scream for one of them to just say something...and then she'll pivot and you'll understand where the fear is coming from, how crippling it can be and how ruined either man would be if he lost the other.
For anyone who's a fan of friends to lovers, I can't recommend this book enough! I could gush so much more and give you about 50 more quotes that I highlighted from this book....from the angst, to the heartfelt confessions, to the deep bond of friendship, to the outpouring of love, to the passion of primal desire and the intimacy of tender lovemaking....but all I'm gonna say is READ THE BOOK!!
There's so many things I'm leaving out of my review because I don't want to spoil anything. Just trust me when I tell you that this book will make you FEEL and it'll make you LAUGH and it'll make you fall in love with love.
Now I know that while I have my best friend, I also have so much more. A fierce and tender lover, a soulmate I share everything with because the sharing makes it better. A partner in crime and someone who matches me so perfectly it almost puzzles me.
Oh! I'd be a fool not to add that Lily Morton gives us an epilogue that is so damn wonderful, I didn't know if I wanted to cry because my heart was so full or smile because I was so happy...or do both.
All I know is when I closed this book, I let out a deep and satisfied sigh.
"If Groundhog Day was a real thing I would always choose you."
I fell in love with Henry and Ivo, but I really wanted to know more about Ivo abroad, considering his PTSD issues. We know it's bad, but I think it would have helped understand his mindset a little more. This was a definite slow burn; however, going from unrequited love to hand jobs in a restaurant over the course of an hour or so was a bit over the top. I realize that Ivo had reached his limit watching Henry go out on these dates, but wow.......ice cold to molten lava was enough to make me feel disorganized while reading the story, and saying to myself, "what?". I especially loved how these two men were so important to each other for so long and then realizing that they had been in a relationship for years! Two opposites who just seemed to work.
As usual, Lily Morton is a master at snark! Of course, Gabe, Dylan, Asa and Jude being along for the ride was well worth it. The blind dates were hysterical, and the private party between Henry and Dylan? LOL riot! My hope is that Silas gets a story and whoever he meets knocks him for a loop.
This was a great addition to the series, but I highly recommend reading the first two to make this book more enjoyable. You won't be disappointed with this author, she has become an immediate 1-click for me.
Henry and Ivo are really special together and their bond as friends is so deep and special. I loved the care that they gave each other and how important their relationship was to each of them. I so enjoyed getting to see their lives and how they took care of each other.
I really enjoyed the dates that Henry went on and how those dates got chosen. I loved that we got to see other supporting characters from the previous books and it was nice to visit and see them interact with these guys.
This story touched my heart in so many ways and i highly recommend it! This is the third book in this wonderful series and you will want to treat yourself to all three, however this is my favorite!
