“This novella is a super sweet story of friendship, love, family, and commitment.” ~Under the Covers
Aw, this was such an awesome novella – I just loved it! Bryan and Aaron have been best friends since middle school, and they have been there for each other through thick and thin. Bryan’s brother-in-law has passed away; his sister, Chloe, was diagnosed with Lupus; and Bryan and Aaron have both been integral in helping raise Chloe’s son, Wyatt, who loves both his Uncle Bryan and his honorary Uncle Aaron. And throughout all of this time, Bryan, a surgical tech student, has been in love with Aaron, a Staff Sergeant in the Army National Guard. Bryan has yet to come out to anyone, however. His best friend included. Even with everything they’ve been through together, Bryan has not confided in Aaron because he doesn’t want to risk screwing up their friendship.
Fate has different plans, though; it steps in, takes over, and yanks Bryan out of the closet hard and fast. But the repercussions are nothing he expected; instead, he is rewarded with the divulging of his secret by finding out that Aaron feels the exact same way. And once their secrets are revealed, watch out – the sparks immediately fly!
This novella is a super sweet story of friendship, love, family, and commitment. Bryan and Aaron are so cute together, but also fun to read as they like to give each other a hard time in a cute and playful way, and usually with regard to the other being a sap (which they actually both are). The peripheral characters are great as well, especially Wyatt, who is a adorable, and Chloe, who is loving, accepting, and full of snark (just my kind of gal). I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a very sweet, angst-free story with a few sizzling love scenes.

I am a wife and mom of two sassy and fabulous kids, and I have decided I will be forever 39.After college, I became a paralegal and read only legal documents and eventually some baby naming books.Then about six years ago, I needed to check out all the hype of some teenage vampire romance, and that was all she wrote.It didn't take me long to rediscover my love of reading that I had throughout my youth, and I was devouring every paranormal romance and urban fantasy series I could get my grabby hands on.
Through Amazon forums and Goodreads, I met a lot of amazing women with that same passion, including the lovely ladies who started UTC.While those genres will always be two of my favorites, I have discovered that M/M romance is my primary love.That kiss between Qhuinn and Blay in Phury's book (you BDB lovers know what I'm talking about!) sealed the deal for me.I love a story where love is hard fought and hard won.I am also a firm believer that EVERYONE deserves love and a happy ending, and the beauty in achieving that is what keeps me coming back for more.
I have amassed quite a collection of book boyfriends through the years, with the top two being John Matthew and Jamie Fraser.**le sigh**In the M/M genre, my best buddy is Randy Jensen.Two of my favorite tropes are Friends to Lovers and Out for You, and I enjoy just about any subgenre - PNR, UF, contemporary, historical, RomCom, Young Adult, Erotica, Mystery/Thriller - in my M/M romance.As long as it is written well, eventually gives me an HEA, and makes me have all the feels, I am one happy girl.
