3.5 Stars I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a story about two men (Chance and Vinnie) who had a brief fling in high school and who do not meet up again until their late twenties. The book is told by both MCs POV, which worked really well. It was great knowing what each other were feeling and I was able to truly connect with each character. Chance was always attracted to men, but in high school he was too afraid to come out. Though he really wanted Vinnie, he started dating women instead. Vinnie's brief romance with Chance solidified his knowledge that he was gay. Though he didn't know Chance's true feelings for him, he understood why Chance dropped their "friendship." Both characters were extremely sweet but I would have enjoyed getting to know them better. The book completely centers around these two forming a relationship. Not much else goes on outside of their romance. Also, I really did not like a lot of the choices Chance made, especially when he meets up with Vinnie again. He purposely neglects to tell Vinnie important aspects of his life based off Vinnie's comments. Chance is definitely a runner. He runs away from all potential or perceived problems. Now, this doesn't mean I didn't like the character, Chance. He is very sweet and has a lot on his plate. Vinnie and him together is a great combo. If you are looking for a happy MM romance with past loves coming together again, then this is the perfect story for you. Even if you are looking for a sweet romance with a HEA, then read this book. I had a smile on my face the entire time reading it.
FourStars This is a charming story of two men who had a relationship in high school meeting up more than ten years later. Vinnie is a slightly directionless red-headed bar tender. In his late twenties, he hasn’t ever made any serious commitments or had a long-term relationship. Chance is a single father. He is building his own business while caring for a young son. After a long hetero marriage he is finally ready to be honest about the fact he is gay. Back in school the men fooled around for a summer. They never talked about their feelings and the relationship ended when they went back to school. When Chance walks into Vinnie’s bar and the men meet for the first time since school, things are more than a little bit complicated between them. This short story is tender and nuanced. It is told alternately from Chase and Vinnie’s perspectives. The dual narrative allows Grace to sensitively explore both men’s memories, feelings and insecurities. An excellent short story - I just wish Grace had written this as a full novel! I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. Sarah
