I liked Aaron and Joe. I liked their chemistry and how they interacted with each other. I liked how Aaron has been crushing on his neighbor Joe for over two years but as far as he knows Joe is straight and Aaron is also pretending to be straight. He has always known that he was gay, but as he was growing up, he realized that there were no other gay people in his life. There were no gays at his high school, at his job as a trainee plumber or in construction, and there are no gays in his football league. So that has also had an impact in keeping him in the closet that is until he runs into Joe again and finally asks him if he wants to hang out. While hanging out he keeps getting mixed singles from Joe and Joe finally confesses that he is gay. Aaron also admits that he is gay and that he has had a crush on Joe for a couple of years. They end up spending all of their free time together, and Joe agrees to be Aaron’s boyfriend. All goes well until they happen to come across Aaron’s family while walking home and his mother mentions that Aaron was supposed to be out with his girlfriend, and she asks Joe if he has met Aaron’s girlfriend. It is too much for Joe, and he realizes that at this rate that Aaron will never come out of the closet, and he is not okay with that. When Aaron asks what he can do to fix their relationship, Joe tells him that he knows what he has to do. He has to come out to his family so that they can have a public relationship. I liked how he came out to his older brother Sean first to get a feel for how the rest of his family would react. I loved that it didn’t faze Sean at all. I liked that he finally got up the courage to tell his parents and that they handled it fairly well, his dad wasn’t happy and left, but at least he didn’t say anything that he couldn’t take back. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series to continue to watch their relationship grow. I received this free book in exchange for an honest review.
Here is a synopsis for Streets Apart. I’m Aaron. I’ve got a crush the size of Europe on Joe, who lives across the street, and when he’s around, I transform into a prize idiot. The rest of the time I’m a trainee plumber, following my father and brothers into the construction industry. On Sundays, I transform into a player in the amateur football league. In all, a confident, well-adjusted guy. For a 20-year-old virgin who lives with his parents and falls apart over the boy not-quite next door. Joe’s cute, sexy and fun. I know he’s fun because we used to play together as kids in the massive posh house that he lives in with his parents, the doctors. Now he’s at university, studying literature; we don’t see each other anymore. How do I ask a guy for a date when I can’t string together a coherent sentence when he’s around, and I don’t even know if he’s gay? And what’s more, no one knows I’m gay. This is a feel-good romance about two young men who are crazy about each other and do lots of kissing, hand holding and taking their clothes off.
But it ended easily with sex together.
