... I truly enjoyed this sweet, endearing romance between two old friends who become lovers. It has some angst, but not so much that it overwhelms the story. It also brings up important subjects like homophobia and gay bashing. I loved Dean's family and their interaction, especially his sister's matchmaking. The sex scenes were passionate and loving and fit into the story perfectly. If you like stories that are short and sweet, with little stress, perhaps something to read while having a cup of tea, then you may enjoy this romance.

Melanie requested the following "He’s been waiting for that text for more than a week. Please tell us either what happens next or what happened to get him here and whether he frowns or smiles next."
