My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Marcus is a 30-year-old successful architect. He wants someone to love and knows the right man will turn up when he least expects it. That moment arrives at his friend’s party. He sees Danny for only a moment, yet his interest is piqued. What could be more irresistible than a blue-eyed beauty who is completely untouched?
Danny knows he doesn’t find women attractive, but how is he going to find out if he’s gay? His sister’s party answers his prayers and the most gorgeous guy he has ever seen asks him out. But can their love survive when Marcus wants more than a closeted partner and Danny wants nothing more than to hide forever?
So what did I think?
This was a nice short story which reminded me of my (slightly rebellious) teenage years with references to Winnie Blues and schoolies!
Danny is young and slightly confused about his sexuality “Was he? Or wasn’t he?” but seeing Marcus as his sister’s party starts to help clarify things for him. “But if he was honest, he knew his confusion wasn’t the cause of his uneasiness. Yes, he was terrified of following a path that was completely new and uncertain. But at this very moment what really worried Danny was that if Marcus left, he would never see him again.”
It is really lovely to see how Danny and Marcus respond to each other with Marcus gently easing Danny into their relationship. Plus there is beautiful tenderness shown by Danny when Marcus gives himself to Danny…“We can learn together.”
This is a sweet romance about Danny’s coming out with a happy, smiling ending.
Plus I got the book for only $0.99 so no complaints there!
