At ten years old, Noah Jameson and Cooper Bradshaw collided mid-air when they dove for the same football. For three years, they were inseparable…until one day when Noah and his parents disappeared in the middle of the night.
Noah and Cooper never knew what happened to each other. Now, seventeen years later, after finding his boyfriend in bed with another man, Noah returns to Blackcreek looking for a fresh start. And damned if he doesn’t find his old friend grew up to be sexy as sin. Coop can’t believe Noah—the only person he trusted with the guilt over his parents’ death—is back. And gay… Or that Cooper himself suddenly wants another man in his bed for the first time.
There’s no denying the attraction and emotion between them, but can they overcome the ghosts of their pasts to have a future together?
This title contains two strong, sexy men, and a passionate friendship that transforms into a sizzling hot romance.

I have no idea why I kept putting this one off because it was delightful! A great friends-to-lovers and gay-for-you tale with a great story and a lot of heat. I finally ended up reading it because I was really jazzed to read the second book in the series, Stay, and I started it and was immediately lost. I will admit to liking Stay better, but this one was great too!
I can absolutely recommend this sweet tale of two men falling in love after 17 years apart to any and all M/M romance readers and highly recommend it to fans of the FTL/GFY genre. You will be delighted!
