I'm not usually into historicals, but this one got under my skin. I was surprised to find emotional depth in a such a short story. The story of Sasha and Thomas begins with a curious need and innocent liaisons between two teenagers only beginning to learn what it means to be gay. And then Thomas leaves, betraying the love and trust of Sasha, and the subsequent years of separation slice both the MCs down to slivers of who they used to be together, finally building to an unrelenting blazing rage and desire upon their reunion that assaults you until the last words. Yeah, it was that intense and it never let up. This was not a light read by any means. But the intensity of their emotions feeds into scorching encounters with each other. Well worth the read.

3.5 stars out of 5.
