NOT RECOMMENDED
Rainbow Award-winning author Luke Hartwell once again explores the relationship between gay and straight best friends in this sparse, moving story. Chris has been in love with his best friend Jimmy since childhood. While Chris is at college, Jimmy is sent to prison. Now Jimmy is free once more and the two meet again.
"I am in awe that in a mere 6,050 words the impact is greater than a full length novel. I, for one, won't be forgetting this heartfelt romance anytime soon." - Kynthos the Archer
Luke Hartwell is the acclaimed author of Atom Heart John Beloved, Nathan's Story, and Locomotives in Winter.

1.5

Awful

Book Cover

  • Headless torsos and/or exposed abs – how original

Engagement

  • Too brief to put down

Likes

  • There aren't many m/m books showing ex-cons at all, much less trying to turn their lives around
  • I liked Christopher and felt sorry for him at the same time

  • Ankle deep

Mood Upon Completion

  • Annoyed

Grammar

  • Very few/no typos

Sex Scenes

  • Meh

Dislikes

  • Jimmy's constant 'I'm not gay…but I sort of am' got annoying and it was confusing Christopher

Emotional Depth

  • Weakly emotional

Content Warnings

  • None

I was so apathetic towards this book; I was seriously searching my brain to find likes and dislikes

There wasn’t much of an ending – it doesn’t even seem like a happy for now; would have liked a couple more paragraphs/epilogue or something
