FiveStars All I can start out by saying is WOW! Loved this book. It had one of the most moving stories about being in love. The story was so touching I didn't expect to cry, but every time I picked it up to read, I found myself crying. Every time I had to stop reading, I was always thinking about what could possibly happen next. The author did a wonderful job with the characters, all the pain, sickness, and love that Jensen and Mike went through, was so much for two people, but their love held them together as friends. Finally they get that one chance, but will they take it, no spoilers, you need to read it! Wanted to keep reading about Mike and Jensen but the book was done, so wish there was more!!

The two main characters, Jensen and Mike, have an intense relationship, and the book spans two decades in their lives as they navigate what it means to be adults and how to remain in each other's lives. Both men are complex, full of insecurities and each with their own challenges that have, in a way, stalled their growing up. I liked the unusual nature of their relationship. This is neither a portrait of a long-term couple nor a falling-in-love story, though it has elements of both. I will admit the direction the story took was not at all what I was expecting, and I loved it. Without giving too much away, I'll just say the way these two men finally found their stride was unusual and wonderful, and it had me sighing with delight by the end of the book. There is plenty of hot sex in this one, so be prepared. It's more intense and aggressive than steamy or sensual, with a distinctly raw quality to it. It fit the characters and the story well, and I never felt as though the sex was gratuitous because of its importance to the storyline. The one negative was that it was often hard to follow conversations and know who was speaking. This was partly due to formatting in the e-book copy, but not entirely. I wish the author had used more dialogue tags to make things more clear. It was enough that I was frequently distracted and brought out of the story because I was trying to figure out who was talking. Other than that, I loved it and look forward to reading Ms. Tortuga's other books. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. ~Amy
