This was a relatively short story that tells the tale of Peter and Adrian being reunited many years after Adrian had left Peter.

In some ways it is very similar to the first book, teenage boys separated but never forgetting their first love, but in others it is different. The first book had David seeking Elliot who had been taken away by his father. In this book, Peter is not searching for Adrian but finds himself reunited after an accident. The first book focused on the current day and told a li

This is the second book in my Men of Riverside series.

Rediscovering Adrian continues the adventures of a group of men who all went to the same high school in the fictional town of Riverside, Texas. Not all of them know they are destined to be couples. Some of them believe they are only friends. Circumstances and life separate them, sometimes for several years. But luck, determination and love will help them get the reunions they deserve.

This second volume is about Peter Adams, who has spent the

I liked the first half but the second half was pretty much overshadowed by Mark. I spent the whole second half (or from wherever mark was showed up) wondering about Mark. I couldn’t like Adrian after he just forgets about Mark. Adrian and the other MC (forgot name) instantly reconnected after a few spoken sentences and from there I just lost all interest in them. I am still curious about Mark but since he was (view spoiler) ...more

I got a great deal of enjoyment out of this story. I enjoyed every moment spent with the characters. I've really liked all of Ms. Yates stories and this was no exception and her Men of Riverside series is particularly fun.

As the famous quote from 'Cool Hand Luke' says, “What we've got here is...failure to communicate”. Never was this reference more applicable than it is to Adrian and Peter in 'Rediscovering Adrian' by Serena Yates. Their failure to communicate leads them down a long road filled with disillusionment and pain.

On one hand, Adrian is a sensitive, gentle, nurturing man who adores Peter. However, Adrian often reacts to situations by throwing the proverbial baby out with the bathwater. He responds irrat

There's something very special about this series...I think it's the long lost love/reconnecting and...hope it gives the reader. All these guys have loved and lost and yet still manage to come back to that one special person they're ment to be with...~sigh~ so romantic. Adrian and Peter are no exception. Both are good men but certainly not perfect, with faults on both sides forcing them apart as young men. Watching them come back together as older and wiser (?) men was delightful :) Of course, I ...more

Ms Yates is one of my auto buy authors. I sincerely enjoy her books and I have never been disappointed.
The Riverside series is especially touching as these people are trying to re-connect with lost loves.
Adrian and Peter were adorable in this book and I enjoyed "their story". Bring on #3...Mark and Rick!

Having finished Rediscovering Adrian, I am now impatient to find out what is going on with poor Mark, who brings Adrian back to the love of his life, Peter. Wonderful characters and sweet romances, the Men of Riverside series has me hooked!

I enjoyed the first book, but I loved this :D. Adrian and Peter are great - my only complaint is that it isn't longer. I would have liked to have seen Adrian and Peter's story fleshed out a bit more, but regardless, I still loved the book!

This book got a few giggles from me but I didn't really enjoy it. I'll try to explain why but don't know if I can. It's like it was written by me when I was a 13 y/o closeted, fat, pimply faced gay kid, wishing for some dramatic event to make that special boy realize he loves me, or some magic fairy to turn me into a Greek god with a big schlong (even though the Greeks didn't find Bid Schlongs athletically pleasing.) It's dramatic for the sake of being dramatic rather than telling a good story. ...more

The characters felt a bit more fleshed out in this installment giving them motivations for their somewhat idiotic rationalizations. Had either bothered to use a phone in the last five years their whole separation could have been avoided. The story is well told and the rebuilt relationship comes about nicely. My biggest issue is with Adrian's complete self-absorption when it comes to his brother. He sees his brother in an obviously distressing situation and then promptly forgets about him for wee ...more

Almost identical to Finding Elliot. There were even some of the same verbiage used. Obviously the names are different and a few side notes just about identical. Might read the third installment however I worried that one will be the same format as the first two.

I’m a night owl and start writing when everyone else in my time zone is asleep. I’ve loved reading all my life and spent most of my childhood with my nose buried in a book. Although I always wanted to be a writer, financial independence came first. Twenty-some years and a successful business career later I took some online writing classes and never looked back.
