Astro-physicist Matthew Dansk falls for one of his colleagues during a research trip, but Alan won’t tell anyone he’s gay and he never goes out with the same man twice. Matt is looking for a serious relationship and he doesn’t date men who are in the closet. When the two men part ways, Matt does his best to forget his feelings for Alan.
Months later, Alan winds up in the hotel room next to Matt’s at a conference, and both men realize the chemistry between them hasn’t diminished. As they spend time together, Matt sees a different side of Alan. When he realizes Alan’s feelings for him run deeper than he’d thought possible, he begins to hope that they can be together after all.
Matthew Dansk is an Astro-physicist working at LSU working for Greg. He is confident in the job that he does and devotes most, if not all of his time to his work. Matthew is not a very out going person. He is shy and does not handle crowds well. He is not a one night stand type of guy. He is more of a relationship type of person, which he does not currently have.
Alan was a colleague of Matthews when Matthew was working on a research project. Alan is closed off with his emotions. He is also not out to anyone. He keeps his work life and his personal life separate. Alan is afraid for anyone at work to find out he is gay because he does not want it to ruin his career.
Matthew fell hard for Alan when the two worked together but with Alan being in the closet and more into one night stands, Matthew will not allow himself to go there with him, even though he Matthew would love nothing more. The last night that Matthew is in town working on his research, he finally gets up the nerve to follow Alan and when they approach each other at the club they give in and have one hot kiss. Knowing nothing has changed with Alan not wanting to be in a relationship, Matthew walks away and tries to forget him.
Little does Matthew know he will be running into Alan at a convention a few months after their hot kiss and everything is about to change.
Can one man that is in the closet and cut off emotionally from others find the courage to open up to the one he loves? Will Alan have the courage to tell Matthew how he truly feels about him and will Matthew have the strength to believe Alan if he does? Can these two men finally get it together and admit their feelings to one another or will it be too late for them?
This book was such an amazing read. It held me captive through the whole and kept me wondering if Matthew and Alan would finally get their heads out of their butts and end up together. Silvia Violet is an amazing author who was able to bring out so many different emotions through each page of this book with both characters. I would definitely suggest this book to others to read.
I give this book an all around five star rating.
