I was impressed with the story line and characters in this short story. With only about 25ish pages I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. I loved that these two have been a 15 year monogamous relationship and still deeply desire and love one another. Eddie's inner monologue gives a true taste of the stress he's been under. I loved Mike. His determination to reconnect, to create something memorable and show Eddie how much he loves him is wonderful. Adult read

This book is a short read, but I do have to say that it is completely sweet and heartwarming. While there isn’t a lot of backstory that we are told, I do think that we are told enough that it helps the story along. I would love to see a full length book featuring these characters to be able to learn more about them. There is quite a bit of smut factor that happens in the book, but I think that it ended up working out in the course of the story. While we do know that Eddie and Mike have a colorful past, it was really great to watch as they reconnected with each other even after being together for so long. Overall, this was a really sweet read and I would recommend it to people who enjoy this genre.
