Paul has known Max since they were teenagers. Max is the love of his life but their personalities are quite different – Paul is pure country while Max is city through and through. Paul realizes that his love is not enough to keep Max in their little village and cares enough to let him go and pursue his dreams.
Max loves Paul but wants to sample the big time on the London stage. He leaves to pursue his career goals and although he wants very much for Paul to go with him he recognizes that his lover would not be happy anywhere else because his roots are tied to rural Britannia, a tiny hamlet in England.
The story opens when the two men are 23 years old, seven years into their relationship, just as Max is about to leave Paul for the first time to go to London.
This book is different from most romances with the story spanning two decades. We follow the lives of Paul and Max as they struggle with their feelings, the challenges of separation, loneliness, other relationships, infidelity, while still keeping connected despite being apart. The one constant over the years is their love for each other and their fight not to lose touch even though they are no longer physically together.
This is a fast-paced read and the two characters come to life when they are together, generating a lot of heat. The sex is explosive, hot and steamy every time they reconnect! The bond between Paul and Max is also quite evident during their many separations and other affairs as they try to keep the fire going through occasional visits, infrequent letters and telephone calls. Over time their love not only remains constant but grows.
A personal crisis eventually forces them to reevaluate what is really important, communicating for the first time what they mean to each other, thus making the decision to change their lives surprisingly easy.
In Enough to Let You Go once again Willa Okati has penned a wonderful and poignant love story. Readers will love her portrayal of these men and this book is a must read for fans of Ms Okati and new readers alike.
