This is a beautiful book. There’s no denying that. It’s a gorgeous tale of two men who get a second chance at their first love. Unfortunately for them, the timing of their reconnection is such that history is bound to repeat itself -- this time on an international scale -- if they don’t try a new approach to solving the problems that caused their split in the first place. The process is drawn out, as it must be with the two of them living busy lives on separate continents. When they do come together in an effort to make it work, the moments they share are weighted with a sense of inevitability, but they can’t quite decide it’s reconciliation or a permanent split that’s inevitable.  While I loved the richness of this story, particularly in how well the locations and secondary characters are fleshed out, there is a caveat: the same doesn’t quite hold true for the main characters. This is the third Interlude Press book I’ve read that started out as fanfiction, and it is the first one for which, to me, that fact is evident. Oliver and Seth are so similar to the television characters the fanfiction was about -- how they met, their histories, their interests, their personalities, even their looks to an extent -- that I couldn’t picture them as their own characters, but as the television characters I’ve known and loved for several years. I had hoped that would change as I got deeper into the book, but the opposite was true -- the more details that were revealed about them, the more they resembled those other characters instead of themselves. I’ve rated this book as five stars, and I stand by that rating because it truly is a spectacular tale. However, I can’t help but wish the author had spent a little more time shaping the main characters’ personalities and backstories.
