Tag and Reese have been friends forever, seeing each other through the good times and the bad, including the untimely death of Reese's lover. Until one drunken indiscretion threatens to change everything. But there is more than friendship on the line.
Can Reese put the pain of his loss behind him and take a chance on a future with Tag, or will one hot night together be all...more
Almost all the way through it, I have my chest constricted with emotion. I love the classic theme of carrying a torch for the best friend, where one will stand through thick and thin, and then get the happy ending in the end. The emotion that Tag and Reese have is just so strong and makes me all emotional.
I love the fact that the story is taken from both Tag and Reese point of view -- so we know how one is actually thinking about the other. The story is just so good, when Reese visited ...more
I like the friends to lovers theme, and Reese overcoming his grief at the loss of his lover Kal to move on with his life.
The chapters switch between Tag and Reese's POV, which allows us to see both sides at times felt a bit jarring for me.
I missed the friendship between these two, we hear about what great friends they are and have been since grade school, but I didn't really see it.
And was Reese surprised that Tag has loved him for years? did he really not know? ...more
Tag has been in love with his best friend, Reese, since they were children, but he always knew that they would never be more than friends. He knew this through school; he knew this through the painful process of watching Reese fall in love with his partner, Kal; he knew this as he watched Reese grieve after Kal's death (which happens before the book starts). And he had reconciled himself to it. W ...more
I usually avoid angst-ridden book, but this book somehow pulled me in. From the title, we know that this book is quite emotional one. Fortunately, it is not some make-believe angst found in some m/m romance books where every bad things that exist in the world happens to one person (or a couple) at the same time, or those prolonged conflicts stem from misunderstanding and lack of communication. No. Here, the angst comes from mourning a dead lover, and from an unrequited love.

I'm a pure sucker for friends to lovers books. This story surprised me in the sense that I wasn't sure what to expect and liked it so much more than I thought I would going into the story. It suffers from short storyitis, too much in a short amount of time...but it left me wishing it had been a novel size, which is a good thing. I enjoyed learing about Tag and Reese and the supporting characters were great. I finished feeling good about the story :) ...more
Seemed like the MC mourning his partner's death is all "woe is me" and then next thing you know he is not...so this was okay, the bones of a good plot were there but too short. IMHO 2.5 stars. ...more
