4.5 Emotional Stars
The Second First Date picks up approximately a month after the end of The First Morning After. I would advise against reading this as a standalone, even though this isn't listed as being in a series. This novella is a continuation of The First Morning After. To me, it reads more like a serial about Mitchel and Danny, with both books spanning a few days each in the lives of the characters.
Mitchel travels to Philadelphia to visit Danny for the weekend. The next 36-hours is a journey of emotional character development, without any other bells and whistles. The sole focus is on the relationship between Mitchel and Danny, which spans nearly their entire lifetime.
As the Golden Boy, Mitchel is in the closet to his family and everyone in their town. After the events in the previous novella, Danny fears the reception Mitchel is receiving at home. I was anticipatory while reading to know what was happening back in Peach Blossom myself, but the story sticks to Philadelphia, with a few paragraphs explaining what was going on back home.
The Second First Date was an enjoyable read, and I look forward to more about Mitchel and Danny in the future, as well as reading more by this author.
Mitchel is struggling, but he is drawn to Danny and wants so much to make the effort. Fortunately, unlike book one, there is no violence or bullying that Danny must endure while Mitchel watches from the sidelines. He has guilt for not protecting Danny when they were younger, but now in the gay world, Danny is in charge and Mitchel must rely on him. Navigating this new world is hard for him and we can’t expect him to change overnight. Fortunately, Danny doesn’t expect him to go clubbing to prove he’s into him, just be with him and try. And he does.
This is a short story and must be read in order. We get a tentative happy-for-now, but I am sure they are heading in the right direction. Don’t go into these expecting a complete resolution as the time frame is barely a few days, but what we get is satisfying.
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
