A cute short story about a young man who has been judged his entire life for being gay, so he should be the last person in the world to judge someone else who is less than perfect. But that is exactly what Steven does to his would be boyfriend James. Once Steven searches his heart and realizes the mistake his made, is the damage done beyond repair?

I really enjoyed all the cute little details of this story. The chance meeting, the immediate connection, literally not being able to take their eyes

This is a charming manlove short story, but...

...it has a pretty big problem. The problem is, I don't really connect to the characters, because the story is told to me, not shown to me. The characters are well-developed in the physical sense. I get that James is tall, dark and handsome. But I don't feel any chemistry, and, in fact, get a little uncomfortable with the two main characters staring at each other for no apparent reason. I don't get the thrill I should have from the hand-holding. I LO

"No, don't be. I realize what was wrong with my life because of you. I wasn't living. I was just existing. Every day was the same for me, but because of you I see life in a different way. It's like I can finally breathe. James, you are my breath of fresh air."

Steven worked in a clinic, leading a very boring normal life when he met James, brother of one of the doctors in the clinic Steven was working for. They clicked and decided to t

It was okay, not as good as expected. And I know what's the big secret of James from the start. But Steven was annoying and offended for James's situation, and I can't see what's in him that makes James love him so much.
And that Alex guy? Who the f*** is he? No explanation about him.
This story is full of crying James while Steven was being a douche, and explanation of his situation, but it didn't touched me much.
And the ending was just like, you know...it's like "Let's see, if the sex is possib

I really liked this one.I really feel for the character James.My only thing is that I feel like this story should have a part two, because it leaves me wanting to know how they coped. I wanted to know if they ever did have sex and how they felt. I want to know if they stay together forever. I just want to know how they handle all of life struggles. Still I enjoyed it.

2.5 star review by Amber

I do not even know where to start with this review. I honestly do not know.

Was the writing bad? No. Was there a decent plot? Yes. Was there good character building? Yes. But, unfortunately even with that said, this story lacked so much.

Steven lives a boring existence. He goes to work and comes home. He barley has a social life so when a tall, dark handsome man appears at the doctor’s office where he works he’s smitten. James came to the doctor’s office to visit his brothe

This 20 pages novella packs a huge punch. We have two main MC, Steven who works in a doctor’s office doing admin stuff and James the Doctors brother who is a Real estate agent.
Steven is always on time and incredible organized. But this one day he’s running late and ends up falling down right in front of the most handsome man he’s ever seen just as he walking into the building where he works. Said name helps him up away they go. A while later James is standing in front of Steven asking to seen by

Right off the bat, the one thing that I really loved about this story was how it was not sex-centered. It sounds funny I know, but I really enjoyed how the characters took the time to get to know each other before turning sexual. Granted, you do find out why that is exactly, but it is still a great change of pace.
I really loved Steven’s character though. There was just something about him that made him very realistic. It seemed like everything he was going through was what someone could be goin
