At the same time, Sebastian presses him to have kids. Keeping their love going is Caleb’s main goal.

When their friend Cujo visits from Florida, he meets their roommate Tristan. Cujo has always wondered about a past college fling. What would have happened if he wasn’t afraid of being with another man? Tristan is charming and loving, and presents a new challenge to Cujo, who’s now faced with a decision that will change his life forever. Once he embarks on this path of love, there is no turning back. Can he overcome his fears to find love in a new way?

A BUMP IN A RELATIONSHIP CREATES A CROSSROAD WHICH NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH
September 14, 2018
Format: Kindle Edition
It’s been a while since I’ve read a MM romance novella, so I’m glad I came across this one.

While it nice to see [for some individuals at least] of the same sex finding each other and falling in love to the point at which they decide to get married.

Caleb and Sebastian are such a couple. Caleb without racecar driving in his future has taken a job as a sports model, with Sebastian still working as a cameraman. This creates havoc in Caleb’s mind regarding their future as a couple and their financial situation. Adding to this glitch in their relationship and then to make it even more complex, like a wife in a typical heterosexual sexual marriage, Sebastian desires to have children from an adoption agency they can raise together as a real family. While this might be important to Sebastian in his life, for Caleb it’s far more important to have their loving relationship continue unabated. This sort of conflict as created a somewhat major crossroad in their relationship, a crossroad which will hopefully end happily.

The crossroad theme as the book’s title suggests, happens again when their friend Cujo comes from Florida to visit our couple and he meets their roommate Tristan. While Tristan presents himself to be an amiable and affectionate individual, his personality creates an awkward situation for Cujo; awkward because he had once been in an unsuccessful relationship in college which had been caused by his being frightened having it with another man. Will Cujo be able to conquer the horrendous remembrance of his first same sex relationship so he can let Tristan into his life and find the love he truly desires to have.

In the end, will both of these loving same sex couples get the kind of HEA they desire?

For having given his readers a rather enthralling reading experience, I’m giving the author, W.S.Long, 5 STARS.

NOTE: I actually received this copy of the book through a giveaway the author had on Amazon and the above has been my honest opinion. While, when I’d entered the giveaway I hadn’t realized that this book is actually the third/final installment of a three-book series, I found this book does relatively well as a stand-alone story.

Book 3 is the continuation of book 2. This book takes place after book 2 and Caleb and Sebastian are now living in New York and Caleb has jobs as a sports model. Sebastian is still a cameraman but they are married and now Sebastian is pushing for children. I feel that this books moves very quickly. This book actually has a very similar pattern to book 2. They are rushing into things but now Caleb is a little more resistant to add more to their plate which I did appreciate. There was also Cujo and Tristan. Tristan is a model friend of Caleb’s and Cujo is a Garrison’s best friend. These two hit it off and they start a relationship pretty quickly. Cujo really did not resist his feelings for Tristan nor did not hide his feelings for Tristan. He jumps into it with both feel but there was not much explanation given as to why, he just does it, dang the consequences. I wish that this story had a little more angst in all of these books. These are very short sweet books. This story was a little longer and did have a little more explanation but towards the end it seems to drop off. It is a cute sweet read overall. I just wish the author would explain things more. I have voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange for an arc.

Very nice ending

This is the conclusion to the 3-book series and the even happier ending for Caleb and Sebastian. We also get the bonus of another couple meeting and falling in love in this one. I really like this series, and this book in particular. The added characters had me smiling, and I would consider this to be more of an ensemble story than the first two. This author does a great job creating people who are easy to relate to, and he tells a compelling story. Nicely done!

Great Ending!

A great ending to a wonderful series. I really like seeing more of Caleb and Sebastian and how they are settling into their relationship. I love Cujo and Tristan, they are so adorable together. They seem like an unlikely pairing but fit so well together. A great series that I was sad to see end! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

About the Author

Lawyer by day, writer by night. When I'm not lawyering during the day, I'm often reading or writing gay fiction involving men who desire a happily ever after. I'm happily married to a mild-mannered college professor, who likes to escape to the Orlando theme parks, or to a faraway place. You can often find me on social media, sometimes talking about books, but many times mouthing about TV, movies and other geeky stuff involving superheroes. Oh, and I use a pen name to protect the innocent.
