The day Payton Grady returns home to Seattle after a few years away, he sees a gorgeous club kid who accidentally leaves an interesting scarf behind at the bus stop. In a silly attempt to locate the owner, Payton’s best friend places an ad on Craigslist. Two years later, Payton and his friend are shocked to receive a response from the erstwhile club kid. After balking, Payton’s stunned to find his missed opportunity was with someone from his past — his ex-boyfriend from college.
Noah Di Cicco has been wracked with guilt since college when he crushed Payton. His insecurities and betrayal destroyed their relationship, and eventually Noah’s whole life. Six years and the experience of a rock bottom have changed Noah.
Now that Noah knows he’s good enough for love, both men remember what they had, while moving past the hurt they caused each other so long ago. Maybe they can be good enough together.
After years of not having seen each other, Payton and Noah are reunited. Old hurts are once again brought to the surface but hope and underlining feelings hope and love do as well.
What I loved:
*It’s got a couple of my favorite tropes bundled in one package: friends to lovers and second chance romance.
*These two men, Noah and Payton- together and individually.
*The angst. Gah! My heart hurt for these two men- especially Noah. I wanted to hug them and take away their pain.
*The story is told from a dual POV.
*Their intimate scenes. There were sweet and so full of hope and emotion.
*Also, major kudos to Kade Boehme for being able to pack a full story in a novella. I know that’s difficult to do.
~I would like to point out that this review is for the re-released and re-edited version of this book. It is essentially the same story but does contain extended scenes and some content was removed. It was tweaked around and tightened up.~
I recommend this one, guys. I feel like when I read Kade’s stories we’re getting little pieces of him. They are always full of emotion. His characters are based on real people who have faltered and found the strength to get back up. 4.9 Stars
