It was only a game. Wasn’t it?

At a party one night, Charlie Dean’s childhood friend Will Tucker accepts a dare and dresses up as a girl: clothes, hair, makeup. Seeing Will that way incites a riot of confused emotions in Charlie—and he responds by lashing out. He never meant to hurt Will, and now he must do some serious damage control.

During a school trip by train, Charlie and Will share a sleeper cabin. Charlie intends to mend fences, while Will figures it’s as good a time as any to broach the subjects of attraction and sexuality. They want to get their relationship back on track. But after the secrets they both reveal, their friendship can never be the same.

This was a decent read. I believe that there was more of explaining technical terms then there was of anything else so that took away from what I believe could have been a incredible story. So that is why I gave this book three stars.

Charlie and Will are best friends. There has never been anything more between than friendship and neither expected that to ever change. Well that is until a game of truth or dare made Charlie start to question himself and also his reaction, which was not positive by the way.

From that night on both Charlie and Will know that their friendship is going to change forever but the question is can they remain friends with so many new feelings both good and bad? Can these two figure out what is going on between them or is their friendship not enough to withstand the new changes coming their way?

This really was a good read I just wish it would have been more about what was happening between the two men and not so much towards the technical terms. I believe that took away from the book though it is good knowing the difference between specific terms.

I will definitely be looking forward to more books in the future by Susan Laine. I will not let one book that was not my favorite turn me off to an amazing author.

Galley copy of Train to Somewhere (Before and After book 3) provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
