Here I am being mean again and taking away a star for a re-read book. This one just wasn't as fun as I remembered it. Here we have two bed-buddies that have been together for 12 years and they never kissed or slept in the same bed? Even once? WhatEVER!

It was really hard to suspend disbelief for this one. Probably because it was too short for much character development. But something about it tickled my fancy a year ago, so there is that.

Lovely little piece about two men who love each other but have built a relationship over the years that keeps them from saying it. When Carter blurts it out when night, Owen doesn't react the way he had hoped and that sets a chain of events in motion that will separate them. Romantic and sweet and hopeful.
In general is okay, but I don't like MC who sleeps with other man the first thing they had trouble.

Really nice and unbelievable story about two men who have been best exclusive friends-with-benefits for 12 years and still can't figure they love each other.

I liked the guys.
Sweet short about a couple of friends with benefits (for twelve years!!) and a misunderstanding, I love it, really lovely.

So so short yet beautiful beyond words! Whenever I add another of Cecilia's novellas into my "Read" pile I look longingly at her GoodReads page and wish for another book to appear, yet at the moment it seems there are no new material since 2012. It really makes me sad because I only have two novellas left..

It doesn't even make sense to me to be over emotional about a character I've only just "met" something like 2 pages ago. Yet this is exactly Cecilia magic way with words. The relationship betw

It takes not a little effort to suspend disbelief on this one.
Carter and Owen have been best friends with benefits for no less than twelve -TWELVE- years and not only they have never found it in themselves to confess their love, they have codified their sex so strictly as to make anyone think "why bother?": no kissing, no cuddling, no affection; just the two crudest acts. I can see they are supposed to be English while I am Italian and fiery but seriously... 12 years together and not even a hug?

An enjoyable m/m freebie short story about a relationship that has been friends-with-benefits for the past twelve years, but that both men now want to become something more. Unfortunately, the way Carter (36yo) and Owen (40yo) have conducted their affair has left each of them unsure as to how the other man would react to his change of heart and affection.

A quick and easy read with some nice sexytimes, too. Cheating warning: (view spoiler)
