Nice but a little too sweet, it would have been much more interesting if we had more background on Kia and Brand. The scenario of why one left and the other gave up was a little far fetched and did not work for me, and once they are reunited and all is forgiven.....yeah I don't think so. I thought Kia and Brand were cute and sweet I just wish the story was fleshed out more.

Reunions have me fascinated, so to read a short story that is basically about the reunion of friends who lost touch with each other was a real treat. The story isn’t complicated, and the reason they lost touch is stupid - when you think about it logically – which lovers often do not. The emotions between Brand and Kia are sweet , very touching, and, luckily, strong enough for them to start talking again .

Brand has a hard time first, deciding if he can forgive Kia for stopping to respond to his l

I would have liked this a lot more with just a bit more than one memory and one or two hours of Kia and Brand.
And I really think Kia had more explaining and apologizing to do. His explanation and the letters just weren't enough for me.

A short book about 2 guys who were inseperable and then 1 goes to college. In irder for him to stay there and not come home, he cut off all communication with the other man.
This story takes place, I guess on christmas eve when Kia comes home to claim the man he loves.

It's a nice childhood-friends-turn-lovers short story. Brand and Kia grew up together. They felt that they loved each other, but didn't tell the other person. When Kia left for college, they kept in touch for the fist two years, but then the contact started to be sparse, mostly because Kia stopped responding to Brand's emails/calls. Now, four years since they went to college and saw each other, Kia suddenly appeared in Brand's door. Is it too late?

This is a sweet story. There are some elements t

Have you ever wanted to have a second chance with that lost love? In White Rain, Brand gets to do just that. This is a sweet story and while it is short, I felt like I got to know both characters well enough to believe their relationship. I liked the idea of the letters that Brand gets to read to see what Kia has been up to over the past four years. Give this one a shot, you won't be sorry.

This story's sweetness was overdone and it just didn't make sense to be. I'll grant that we have to stretch the imagination when reading many of these books, especially ones where someone gets abandoned or dumped...and then comes crawling back begging for forgiveness. But this book just made me realize how fed up I am of that overused scenario.

3.5 stars rounded up to 4. Lovely short holiday story. This is a lovely friends to lovers story with some painful separation and ultimately hopeful conclusion. Well written descriptions of the isolation and pain both Bran and Kia felt while separated. Some very beautiful passages.

Brand and Kia had drifted about as they left for college. Brand hasn't been able to move on despite feeling left behind by Kia. It was wonderful to see that despite the bad way it was handled it was wonderful to see that both men had waited for each other.

A little too yaoi for my taste, but a cute, fast, happy read. Short on the substance or back story, sex scenes are tentative at best, but it's sweet.

2.5 He disappears for two solid years with no explanation, no hope, nothing and within five minutes he's forgiven? Bran, you are a doormat.

Too short to really give the plot the justice it deserved, and also a bit sickeningly sweet for my tastes.

This short story was full of emotions. I liked it, but it was a bit to mushy for me.

Unremarkable short story - never felt any connection to the characters.

This story is nice. But I don't think it's believably. Not for me.

I love to write, read and watch anything to do with m/m romance as long as it has a happy ending! I work a full time job and write as much as I can in my spare time. And I've had three books accepted, two are out now and one is due in September along with a short story!
