Sometimes to find love, you must first learn forgiveness.
A dozen years, 2,000 miles, and a law degree after high school, Rafi Steiner continues to harbor resentment toward Isaac Jones, his childhood bully turned NBA star. When Isaac appears at Rafi’s favorite restaurant acting like a long-lost friend, Rafi bluntly dismisses him.
But Isaac is tenacious and he has his heart set on the grown-up version of the boy he always wanted and never forgot. The way Isaac sees it, he and Rafi are perfect for each other, if only he could sink the most important shot of his life: his one shot at forgiveness.
Let me start by getting some fangirling out of the way…Robert M. Clark’s narration for this is a SLAM DUNK! He brought Rafi and Isaac to life. I was absolutely impressed and can only say the narration was so good for this short story that as soon as it ended I immediately started it over and listened again.
What I love most about this sweet short (now my 7th time re-reading) is how I find something new to appreciate about it every time I read, or now listen to, it.
I love how Rafi is snarky, sarcastic and absolutely not interested in anything Isaac Jones has to say at first. I melt every time with how fully committed and absolutely determined Isaac is to win over the one man he’s always wanted.
“I’ve wanted you since the first moment I realized what it meant to want,” he said, reminding me that he’d been harboring feelings for much longer than the couple of weeks since we’d reconnected, or even the six months since he’s decided he wanted to pursue me. “I do know you, Rafi. I watched you grow up. I know who you are inside. And you know me too.”
This sweet enemies-to-lovers is funny, smolderingly sexy, sweet, and fluffy!
