The writing is solid as always and the plot-line is a good combination of the re-connection of two guys who used to be best friends with benefits and the search of a runaway teenage boy. The different elements are woven together and we get to know our characters bit by bit with all the details coming together nicely as the story comes full circle by the end. Even if we get a HFN ending we understand that Nate and his nephew, Jackson, help each other to move on and both change their lives for the better.
Our reconnecting MCs, Damien and Nate, still have great chemistry and their attraction is palpable. Their renewed connection is real and well-paced with a true promise for a wonderful future together. The glimpses we get to their past tells a nice and real first-love story. With the flashbacks we can put together their shared history and also understand what they mean to each other and what conflicts they had in the past. However, I would have loved to read more details about them together as teens. I loved the prologue and understood its significance later, but missed some more from the story. I understand the limits of a novella and we get all the feels, don’t get me wrong, but I just wanted more… which only shows how much I like these guys. Have fun and enjoy this story!
Love Bytes Reviews
Nate and Damien were friends/boyfriends as teenagers, their relationship was a secret to everyone who knew them, and after being caught kissing Damien in the park by one of the gardener’s, Nate decided that no one in his hometown would ever know about his sexuality. Fast forward to almost twenty years later, and Nate has recently moved back to Forster from Sydney to be closer to his sister, niece and nephew, and to settle down now that he’s in his early forties. When his sister tells him that her 17-year-old son Jackson is having a hard time, Nate offers to spend some time with him. Nate decides to take Jackson fishing, so they head to the local tackle and bait shop, where Nate unexpectedly comes face to face with Damien—who is now the owner of the shop—for the first time in almost 9 years. At first, the meeting is awkward because Nate realises that even after all the time that has passed, he’s still very attracted to Damien, but he also harbours a lot of guilt about how things ended between them. The men decide to give their friendship another go and to see where it leads, but Damien makes it clear that he is an openly gay man and will not hide in the closet for anyone. When Jackson runs away from home, Damien goes along with Nate to Sydney to try and find him. It’s on this journey that they finally get a chance to talk about the past and their regrets, but also rediscover their feelings for each other.
I know I’m going to sound like a broken record, but I cannot compliment the author enough for writing such a fantastic and heartwarming story that gave me all of the feels. It was a brilliantly thought out story of self-acceptance and following your heart. Although it was quite a short read, everything was covered, and nothing felt like it was rushed or glossed over, but as I said at the start, I want/need more. I need to see what happens next between these two amazing men and also with Jackson as he played quite a big part in the story. This book is really more of an emotional rather than physical romance. There is only one sex scene and a couple of kissing scenes, but I felt like that was completely right for the characters and the story. It didn’t need anything else to make you feel that connection to the characters and their emotions.
This book was an absolute pleasure to read, and my heart literally feels like it could burst from happiness. Highly recommended!
