One kiss under the mistletoe destroyed a friendship. Will another Christmas kiss remake it into something better?
Eli hasn’t been home since he left at eighteen with a heart aching from his best friend’s rejection and his father’s intolerance. But when his father reaches out, Eli figures it’s time to make peace with his family. He doesn’t expect to come face-to-face with Turner too — or to learn that the straight friend he’d foolishly loved is actually bisexual — but once the shock wears off, he knows exactly what he wants for Christmas.
Turner’s life isn’t everything he’d once planned, but he’s happy to be the shoulder his loved ones lean on. They keep him busy, which is just as well since none of his dates have really clicked. He hasn’t been able to connect with anyone the way he did with his former best friend. When Eli shows up for the holidays after years away, Turner doesn’t know what hit him. But he knows one thing: This time, he wants to give Eli a reason to stay.
All I Want Is You is a holiday romance with friends to lovers and second-chance themes with an HEA.
What a great read. Two best friends. One is out and proud. The other is firmly in the closet so as not even his best friend knows he is bi. One is in love with the other. A Kiss. Misunderstandings. Bigoted father. Past mistakes that may never be forgiven. All I want Is You is a great read with anguish and heartbreak. Forgiveness and starting over. And an uncertain future for all involved.
Eli is out and proud though it causes issues between him and his coach father. His dad is not accepting at all. This is a point of tension between the two. But not only is he out, he has a secret. He is in love with his best friend. Now all he can hope for is the feelings to be reciprocated as well. But that is not how things go down when the truth is revealed to him. Instead Turner and Eli become estranged.
Now eight years later Eli has not returned home after leaving for college and is about to go back for the first time. He is extremely worried about how things will go down between him and his father. Considering things were left on bad terms when he left home, Eli does not have much hope of things being better between them.
What he does not expect is for Turner to still live in their hometown and for him to be basically a member of his family. So when he sees Turner again, the old feelings return along with some resentment as well.
Turner cannot believe Eli is back after all these years and now it is Turner’s turn to reveal a secret to Eli. The question is, How will Eli handle the truth once he learns it? Is this the second chance that Turner always hoped to get or will Eli turn tail and run the opposite direction?
This was a great read about second chances. Not only a second chance for the two main characters but also a second chance to make things right between father and son. There is a lot of drama but it is a really great read!!!
