I’m about to do something huge, and it could change… everything.
I met Matt in second grade, and we’ve been inseparable ever since. We went to the same schools, studied at the same college. When we both got jobs in the same town, we shared an apartment. And when my life took an unexpected turn, Matt was there for me. Every milestone in my life, he was there to share it. And what’s really amazing? After all these years, we’re still the best of friends.
Which brings me to this fragile, heart-stopping moment: I want to tell him I love him, really love him, but I’m scared to death of what he’ll say. If I’ve got this all wrong, I’ll lose him—forever.
This was a good read. It is a best friends to lovers type of book. I personally do not have a favorite in the type of category that I read in gay books but I will say that best friends to lovers books are among my top favorite types of books. Especially if they are like this one.
Matt and David met in grade school. David is the type of person that is really good in school and rarely has to try when it comes to getting good grades. Matt on the other hand is the opposite. It seemed no matter how hard he tried, he just could not get the grades. This is how Matt and David became friends actually. When Matt had once again gotten a not so good grade on a test, David took it upon himself to introduce himself and offer some advice. This advice and the offer of helping Matt to study is what started a life long friendship amongst them.
After a year or so of being best friends and inevitably their families becoming close, both Matt and David receive some news their little grade school hearts could not fathom… Matt and his family have to move away for his father’s new job. Both boys are heartbroken and promise to stay in touch with one another.
Though these two tried to keep in touch, life seemed to happen and they slowly lost touch with one another. But what these two did not expect is to be reunited a couple of years later when Matt returned to town with his family.
This was when their true friendship really started. They went though most everything together. Everything from high school, to Matt’s older brother picking on him, to going to college together and getting a place together afterwards. They even went on double dates together even though neither man was able to find the woman that they were meant to be with.
Over time these two knew one another better than anyone else in their lives knew them. They were as close as two friends could be. Though they had their differences, they always seemed to work them out.
When something unexpected happened to David, this is when things change for both men. Now they just have to find a way to admit to the other the feelings that they are feeling or they need to decide to bury them and not take a chance of ruining what they have together in their friendship.
This was a great book. It is written in David’s point of view but what I think makes this book even more special is that it is a book that is made into another book by David. What I mean by that is this book is not only about the present times in David and Matt’s life but it is also David’s writings of their life together. This was a really good book. I really enjoyed it. K.C. Wells did a great job on this book. I look forward to more books by K.C. in the future.
