Ann Mayburn titled this book so appropriately because I ADORED every single moment of this short story. I’ve been following Sam and Cody’s story for awhile now and nothing pleases me more than reading about two men who have found love within each other and are able to express that kind of love by bringing someone new into their world.
Mayburn infuses such heart into this little story. It was both touching and heartbreaking. I found myself tearing up multiple times as I read it. Seeing the hope and happiness in Sam and Cody as they went through the adoption process not only made for an amazing story, but also displayed their personal strength as individual characters and also the strength of their bond. Despite the blow they were dealt, Sam and Cody didn’t give up and I think that was what made this short story so inspiring and touching.
I am hoping that Mayburn decides to write more M/M stories, possibly full length ones so that more readers can experience her writing. I think she has a great voice and can definitely write some steamy M/M scenes. Also, if you’re new to M/M and are unsure if you want to try it yet, I think this series is a good one to test the waters. It has good writing and emotional depth, but is shorter in length (but not in intensity) so I think it’s a good introduction to the M/M genre. I hope readers give this series a shot!

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
