I love happy endings with friends to lovers. From childhood to adults with a few years in between they meet again and after pretending to be boyfriends it became real. Another wonderful book by a great author
“I’m gay,” Julian said.
“Right, and I’m straight, so between us we make one bisexual.”
I’m going, to be honest here, this book wasn’t great. But it also wasn’t horrid. It was just “okay”. There was nothing too amazing about the actual story or about the characters themselves. As always, my thoughts and opinions are my own. You do not have to share my opinion, and I respect you for that. However, respect my opinion as well.
So, tennis player Isaac Hudson is adamant that he is not at all gay. ...more
Not bad to be bi
A story of sexual experimentation (after a lie) and falling for your best friend, this was pleasantly low angst and instead a sweet story of love.
Julian has the curse of being stuck, having fallen in love with his best friend years ago and never quite moving on. When said best friend, Isaac, comes out as bisexual, Julian is a bit hurt he wasn't told first, but mostly just proud. It turns out Isaac doesn't actually think he's bisexual- the kiss he had was a misunderstanding- but h ...more
This was a very sweet love story, almost a second chance, between two old friends with little angst and quite a few hot scenes, but I would have loved to get more description of their life outside of their home and their bed. Isaac is a tennis player but the author does not dedicate one scene to the game, except when the two MC’s practice together. So my rating is not a full 4*
I like reading cute and romantic stories. This one was so sweet with just the right amount of angst. To realize you've known your soulmate most of your life but not until later on in life!
This was just absolutely as sweet as can be. Both main characters were adorable in their own way. Isaac was trying to come to terms with a few things he refused to acknowledge and Julian was just as patient as can be!
A really sweet tale
I really enjoyed reading about Julian and Isaac. It was really sweet how devoted Julian was to his best friend and amazing that he was able to have all his wishes come true.
It's a familiar trope to those who read m/m books; a guy finds himself in a situation where pretending he's not straight could be beneficial, asks his gay friend to play along, then realises he's really NOT as straight as he thought he was.
Sean Ashcroft has even written it himself before, but that doesn't take anything away from this book. I freely admit I love his writing style, the depth he puts into his characters, and the emotions leaping off the page.
This is a great example of not just a fa ...more
