Both books were very good, but there was a lot of overlap in Something Like Winter. Most of Tim’s story I already knew from reading Something Like Summer and at times struggled to find something interesting in going over it again. But I didn’t already know a lot about Tim’s character. In Something Like Winter, I came to deeply understand Tim and how his experiences caused him to act the way he did. I enjoyed seeing Ben through Tim’s eyes, and I found out what Tim had been up to in the “missing years” of Something Like Summer.
Now I will probably read Something Like Autumn, which is the story of Jace. I already know how Jace’s story will end, but I do not know how it began.
Jay Bell writes in a very fast-paced, candid, and affectionate way about growing up gay and finding love. I enjoy his stories while I read them and cannot stop thinking about the characters when I’m done.
Each time Jay comes out with a new book, I jump for joy. He truly has an amazing talent. Once you fall in love with Jay's books, I recommend supporting him through his Patreon page as you will get additional views into the characters and their developments. It's well worth the monthly contribution.
Whereas the first volume was told from the viewpoint of Benjamin Bentley, this follow-up companion is from Tim Wyman's observations.
The romance of Ben and Tim has all the makings of becoming one of the most memorable in modern gay literature as all the trials and tribulations of these young protagonists has been classically detailed by the author, from their first encounter as teenagers when Ben's skates plowed into the jogging Tim, to their final commitment of love some dozen years later.
This volume, some 360 pages in length, is a finely written, totally absorbing and believable saga of gay love, warts and all, with a fascinating array of well etched characters. Easy to read, never boring or repetitive, this a first rate page turner. And proof you can write (and read and enjoy) a novel featuring enough M/M sexual situations without having to go over the top.
