A romance with a truly heartbreaking and tough road, as two men struggle to give each other a second chance.

Drew lives in a small town and is happy enough with his job and his marriage. His best friend from high school, Skye, is coming into town to have an art show. Drew should be excited to see his old friend, right? Well, the last time they saw each other was a night filled with love and unfulfilled promises. Drew doesn't know how he can face the man who sees past his barriers and knows how to...more
The writing was good but I didn't really warm to the characters. Drew was weak and sent confusing mixed messages to Skye. I couldn't see what Skye saw in Drew other than physical attraction. Skye was too pushy and his actions towards the end of the book were reprehensible. If I were Drew I wouldn't have forgiven Skye as easily as he did. This made it just an average read for me.
2.5 stars. I'm really conflicted about how I feel about this story and how to rate it. It kept me reading so ultimately I guess I liked the story to a degree, but at a certain point I really lost all respect and empathy for Drew. When (view spoiler)...more
Reviewed by Stacey Jo: If you like loads and loads of angst, and I do, this book is written for you. I'm talking, major unrequieted love here. So you can imagine there is also a lot of frustration too, toward the one who is fighting what seems like is such a perfect love and relationship. But that's what makes angst so great, and the ending all the sweeter when it finally plays out the way it should. The fun in all the nail biting that it takes to finally get there. And we do get a really nice,...more

The story of Skye and Drew is like the one of the moth with the flame, you know that you will get hurt, but nevertheless you search your own pain, maybe since at least pain is a feeling, the proof that you have something.

Skye and Drew were bestfriend in high school: Drew liked Skye and Skye’s family since they were happy and free, something he didn’t have with his own family, and Skye liked Drew… well since he liked Drew. Skye was gay, a big word in the mouth of a teenager, but he was so sure,...more

Drew is a successful architect who has tried to live up to his father’s expectations of him. He’s married a woman he doesn’t love, lives as conservatively as he can and pushed aside his attraction to other men. When Drew was a teenager he had a best friend named Skye who liked to push limits, was artistic and encouraged Drew to live his own life. One night, Drew and Skye gave into the attraction and love they had for each other, and promised to lea...more

Viki Lyn delivers one wild ride from start to finish. If you haven't picked up one of this author's work you need too hurry up and grab one of her books. The story line moves quickly, the writing is tight and the characters...well let me say the cast of characters in the Woodland Village Series is where the heart of each story lays. This is an author who knows her characters intimately, lets them shine-warts and all and delivers an emotional story that will leave you breath...more

Drew and Skye were best buddies growing up, but after one hot and heavy night in the sand dunes, Drew caves to family pressure to be 'the man' his father wants ie: straight, married and not friends with Skye.
Now Skye is back, a successful artist and the waters are well and truly muddied. Skye still wants Drew - he is the love he lost and his possible forever love. Drew is still married but is heavily conflicted by his feelings - and lack of will power - around Skye.
Fast paced clean writing k...more
It kept me more or less interested, but I never felt the love that supposedly existed between the two main characters ... It's like it kept SAYING they loved each other, but nothing actually showed me any strong connection between the two. So, not bad, but essentially unsatisfying. Kind of lukewarm as opposed to heartwarming.

Blue Skye was about an out artist and a closeted architect who meet again as adults. They were friends in high school, until they acted on their attraction and the architect fearfully rushed back into his closet.
Nice and sad but I really thought that Skye was pretty pathetic and drew was an asshole who doesn't deserve Skye. oh well at least happy ending:)
I think that this story could have had potential, however just was flat to me and saw no kind of romance in it.
