The secondary characters are equally great and perhaps there is a story for Daniel and Charlie or Rob and Scott coming our way. This story was heartwarming, thought provoking, and tear producing in equal measure. Bravo.
I must say that I am a huge fan of second chance romance especially when it does like this one here. I absolutely fell in love with Nick and Adam's story. I love everything about this book. This is one of those books that they start out as friends in school, neither one come and say the "L" word but its written all over their faces. Instead of just telling them face to face, one sends a email. 15 years have passed, both Nick and Adam have overcome some obstacles in their lives. Adam"s was on the extreme side dealing with drugs, alcohol and the death of his baby's mama. He is finally clean, feeling inspired with his art and taking care of his daughter. Things are finally looking good for him but he has never forgot about Nick. The feelings are still strong there. Nick, on the other hand, went to school and established himself at the hospital. He is recently divorced, taking care of his daughter and coming to terms with dating again. With the sneaky help of his friends, who I love so so much, get him and Adam together again. They have many things to discuss about the past before they can move forward. They soon realize they have a lot in common, including their daughters birthdays. When these two get together, they are so much stronger. They feed off each other so well that great things start happening but then the one thing they never thought would end their happy family, happens. They have to remain strong to battle through it, while one is feeling weak, the other one is there to build him up. I love how no matter how much time has passed, there's still so much passion between them and a level of respect. It's like nothing has ever changed between them. I so loved how much stronger each one of them were but they still were so weak when it came to their daughters. They have such a great support team with all their friends and families. I loved seeing that! There isn't one thing I would change about this book, everything happened for a reason and I loved every minute of their story including the times I was crying. I would so recommend this book to anyone who loves second chance romances!

Nick Paine spends much of his time working or with his daughter. Although he came out to his ex-wife and friends he has not given himself the chance to explore his possibilities. On one of his first outings he discovers that his childhood best friend and the man who has been haunting him through the years, lives close by and will soon be having a show at a gallery.
Adam "Izz" Azzi is a talented artist who had made a name for himself. Adam is content on living his life dedicated to his art and his daughter. After recovering from an addiction that led to his losing a loved one, Adam is determined to continue to leave his demons behind. So having his unrequited love attending his show, is not only a surprise but a also a curve ball to the careful balance he's trying to achieve in his life. Nick was the one who got away, but now having him back in his life brings uncertainty and a whole other set of emotions he's not quite ready to deal with.
Can you have a second chance at a first love? It seems you can, if this story is anything to go by.
When I started this book, I was so looking forward for these two to be reunited. I knew there was going to be some drama since it was Nick who left and Adam who always felt left behind but, honestly, I was not prepared for the overwhelming amount of angst I found.
If you know me, I like my angst and have read my fair share of angsty stories, but this one sort of left me numb. Why? I don't know. That is the same question I asked myself throughout. What I ultimately came up with was that there was quite a bit of unnecessary drama which in the end took away from the romance. But hey, that's just me.
I do think that the author did a great job in bringing forth the uncertainties of reconnecting with a past love. She brought the range of emotions necessary for me to understand well where Adam and Nick were coming from and why they behaved and/or acted the way they did in the past and in the present time. My only regret in that aspect is that the connection between the two got lost along the way of it all. I felt like the connection was to be assumed, but that took a lot of effort on my part. Since these men had changed so much through the years, it was hard for me to reconcile what they once shared with what they were trying to recapture.
Regardless, there was something there, which was what ultimately made me continue with the story. I enjoyed some their more candid interactions and heated moments they shared. It was during those moments that their connection made itself known, so of course those were the moments that stood out for me the most.
This is the first book by SA McAuley I've read and it certainly won't be the last. Although the story dragged in places, I do feel that the story was well written and engaging enough for me to give this author another try. I particularly enjoyed the complexity of the characters and the range of emotions the author brought to the page. Always a win in any book I read.
All in all, a second chance story that was as intense and it was sweet.
