I chose happiness over other people’s skewed opinions and cruel judgments. I chose Wes.There was a little bit of drama and conflict in this book, but I never once doubted the love that my boys had for each other. I love the two of them and their relationship. I love the emotion, the steam, and the way they are friends first.
But now I have to hide that choice. I have to pretend that Ryan Wesley isn’t my soulmate.
And it’s perfect.
⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱*I still want more*⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱
I have never felt as raw as I feel right now. I’ve just discovered that falling in love has a dark side. When you’re mad at the love of your life, it’s impossible to feel joy.
Love is friendship set in fire.
“There's an old quote my mother once painted on a ceramic platter. Love is friendship set on fire. I get it now.”I loved the continuation of Wes and Jamie's story as much as the first book. We get to see them learning how to be a couple in this one and though you feel the love, their relationship is not always hearts and flowers.
It’s my biggest fear. That the success I’ve been having in my first season with Toronto will be overshadowed — or worse, forgotten — because being a gay professional athlete is the far juicier story.
I feel like all I’ve done these past couple months is lose. Lose patience, lose the ability to talk to my boyfriend, lose that indescribable ease that always existed between me and Wes.
I don’t know how to explain what’s wrong. I’ve been really unhappy, but I don’t want him to think it’s his fault.
Wes has surely left for his morning skate, and I’m relieved at the timing. Then I’m guilty for feeling relieved. And angry for feeling guilty. And annoyed for feeling angry.
My heart is pounding in my ears. Do I yell at him now? Is that the right thing to do? I don’t know what Jamie needs. If I knew, I’d give it to him.
My torture isn’t quite done, though. I crane my neck forward, smash my face against his groin and nip his pubes. I swear he’s practically grinding his dick against my neck now, so turned on he’d fuck any surface of my body. A desperate Wes is a fun Wes. I love forcing him to let go of some of that iron-clad control. One sportswriter called him: “Impenetrable. Unshakeable. With nerves of steel.”
I know better.
Love is like friendship set on fire.
“It’s us. And it’s perfect.”
“The way I feel about Ryan Wesley…it’s something I thought existed only in the movies. He’s my other half. We complement each other in more ways than I can count. When he’s in the same room, I’m focused on him, and when he’s gone I walk around missing him.”
“I have never felt as raw as I feel right now. I’ve just discovered that falling in love has a dark side.”
US was the perfect 2nd book about Wes & Jamie - I couldn't stop reading....sooo funny & erotic & scary....Amazing romance! I just love those two boys! ♥
