It was good to be back with Alejo and Bobby again. I was intrigued when I learned the premise for this book and the story was in no way a disappointment. Although this is the second book about Alejo and Bobby, it's not strictly a sequel as it doesn't continue the story from the first book. Instead we see what happens when the two men take a different path to the one they chose before.

This is the story of two young men very much in love and the struggles they face as they move into their future together. There are some big changes for them both in their home lives and it is fascinating and sometimes difficult to read more of their interactions with their families. There are some very poignant moments in the book, as Alejo thinks about the things he may never have in his life, especially when you consider the life he has in Fall Into the Sun.

The book raises the idea of parallel lives in different universes and it is a mind-boggling theory that one single decision can have a profound effect on the rest of your life. Through this story and the previous one, the most obvious impression that I got is that the feelings the two men have for each other shine clearly and I like to think that regardless of the decisions they make now or in the future, they are destined to be together forever.
