The Little Things

The Little Things

by Jay Northcote




There are lots of things that brighten Joel's life. His three-year-old daughter, Evie, is one. His close relationship with her mother, his best friend from university, is another. Joel's boyfriend, Dan, adds spice to his child-free nights, and Joel is pretty happy with how things are.

Then one cold and rainy night, everything changes. Joel's life is turned upside down when he becomes a full-time dad to Evie, and his previously carefree relationship with Dan cracks under the strain.

Meeting Liam, who acts as if getting hurt isn't a foregone conclusion, shakes Joel to the core. Their attraction is mutual, and Liam makes no secret of how serious he is about Joel. But Joel is wary. He tells himself he's keeping Liam at a distance for Evie's sake, when really he's protecting his own heart. Taking a chance on this new relationship with Liam may seem a small step-a little thing-but is it one Joel can take after losing so much already?

This is very good! I read it in the tiny scraps of free time I managed to grab over 2 1/2 days. I think I might still like Nothing Serious just a smidge better, but everything Jay writes is wonderful. If I had to come up with one piece of constructive criticism, I would like to see a more thoroughly-developed conflict. In both Nothing Serious and The Little Things, the conflict is extremely minor and over in two or three pages. Something slightly more wrenching would be lovely!
