A great story about lost love, grief, and moving on. Highly recommended!

‘I like a man who knows what to do with ten feet of nylon rope.”

The feathers were black and soft as a summer breeze. (...) He took in Stev's bare skin, gleaming in the dim light, his sculpted chest, his lean ass, his wings... and his bound hands.

"I want it all. Everything you want to do to me. I want to take it. I want you. I want your control. I want your intensity, your heat, your cock. I want you to fuck me so hard I feel it for eternity. I want you Max. Al

Losing someone you love is never easy, but losing them on Christmas Eve must be especially difficult. It's supposed to be a time of joy and sharing, but for Max, whose lover died in a plane crash on his way home five years ago, it will never be the same. Caught in his grief, Max is unable to go on and has almost stopped living. Even though Ralph at the diner where Max got the news seems interested, Max cannot stop remembering and wanting Steve back.

It takes a firm admonishment from Ralph telling

Short is good, but unless one is extremely talented, very short can fail to say everything there is to say.
This is the case with this little M/M short.
It's good, but, as writing is "only" good, I missed a couple of transitions, a couple of words here and there.

That said, the story is romantic and has a nice erotic touch to it.

This is a great and very emotional short story about loss, grief and about letting go. The MC’s were perfect and I liked the intensity between them. This would have been a great plot idea for a longer story; I guess I would have loved it just as much as the short one. 5 stars!
3.5 Stars

A heartwarming short story about realizing that moving on doesn't mean forgetting. Very sweet.

Not really my kind of read but it was short and free,

Loved the start and the little twist, but the rest was not for me.

This was a good short about lettng go. In this case Stev had his wings but was being held back by Max's love.
