This story somehow doesn’t fit the line of friends-to-lovers stories in the It Was Always You anthology. Danny and Paul met in a summer camp when they were kids.

We don’t how many summer camps they spent together, but one summer Paul didn’t come back. He disappeared without trace, and Danny – though never stopped hoping he’d see Paul again – never forgave him either.

Then fifteen years later, Paul shows up at Danny’s workplace, as a new employee and immediately wants to reconnect.

I didn’t like either of the main characters. Paul was pushy and stalker-ish, Danny behaved like a petulant child, refused to talk and made only (wrong) assumptions.

I liked the summer camp theme - some flashbacks would have been great - but not the execution. Trashy dirty talk, too fast development of the relationship, everything was wrapped up too easily.
