I really enjoyed this story. The characters were great together and I loved that they developed a friendship first which then led to a solid relationship. Everything happened in due time and the angst was kept to a bare minimum since the main obstacle was Will accepting his sexuality and he was open to the possibility since big hearted Ryan was perfect for him in every way.

By day, I am a middle school teacher. I spend much of my time grading papers, filling out paperwork, and trying to get 6th- and 7th- graders to read.

When I am not at work, I can generally be found at the computer, dreaming up stories about men falling in love. When I have spare time (which is unfortunately not too often anymore!) I read romance of all kinds. Occasionally I pretend to do housework,
