Nothing is as it seems in this story with the potential for a second chance. The attraction, smoldering for the past ten years, seems to be the only thing Josh and Adrian have in their favor and the flame still burns bright.
Adrian, as a senior in high school and son of the Terrance Hotel magnate, is an embarrassment to his family. He isn't just guessing that and there's no self-pity involved. His father reminds him almost daily. He is an outsider in his own family and can't wait to leave. There are no big high school plans and no college waiting in the wings. Adrian is moving to Oregon, all by himself, without a big plan other than to get away from his family.
While at his parents' society celebration of Adrian's graduation rife with undertones of disappointment, Adrian sees an interesting young man who he sort of recognizes from school although he doesn't know his name. Josh and Adrian speak for the first time at this graduation party and one thing leads to another until they share a kiss, the first for each of them. Their interlude was quickly aborted when Adrian's mother saw them together and blew a gasket. Adrian cannot be gay. As a Terrance, marriage to someone with cachet is the plan and Adrian can't leave town fast enough.
Interesting that Adrian of the society family, has no plan other than to be independent and Josh, from the other side of the tracks, is going to college with big aspirations. Thus begins the journey separating these two young men.
Secondary characters add a bit of flavor and throw some curves in this emotional story of push and pull, fear and resolve, oh yes, and hope. Although you will experience the full range of emotion, these guys know what they want. They just aren't sure how to get there.
It is a love story about second chances and it is very fairy tale-y, like a modern, m/m Cinderella :)
This is a story about Josh, sexy, out and proud talented painter with complicated past and a shady "friend" meeting his high school crush - rich, deeply closeted hotel owner. Their chemistry is great, they are pretty likable (even though Adrian WAS a little bit annoying with his inability to make the right decision faster) and I was glad to see them happy and in love in the end.
This is a sweet, romantic and enjoyable book that made me smile and laugh. It is well written and fast paced. In the same time it is not the most believable story, I wish Josh and Adrian had spent more time together before meeting again.
I fully recommend it to everyone who needs something relaxing and sweet.

I so wanted to like this more than I did. I liked the premise of the book and after reading the sample, thought I would give it a go. Plus there were so many positive reviews, it looked like it was going to be worth it.
I enjoyed the writing style, I just couldn't get invested in the MC's relationship.
Josh was a very likeable, strong character who had been through a lot and come out the other side, despite certain elements of his past trying to pull him back into a lifestyle he had removed himself from. It was Adrian I found irritating. I generally don't read books where I think there will be a lot of flip-flopping of feelings and that is the reason why. I understood up to a point why the character felt the way he did because of his obligation/loyalty towards the family heritage, but also couldn't quite understand why he didn't come clean about being gay (or talk to his very affable brother about the situation). When he finally did it was such an anti-climax as nobody seemed particularly bothered. I would also have liked to have seen him stand up for himself, at least a little bit, to his parents and business associates. I'm not altogether sure why Josh was so taken with him and the chemistry wasn't there for me between the two of them, although I did like the idea they were each others first kiss.
I am glad they got their HEA and it all works out in the end, even though it all felt a bit unnecessary.
If you like a light read with some angst then you may like this. A lot of people did.
It just wasn't for me. Sorry.
