3.8/5 on Goodreads with 52 ratings! FREE. *Interracial M/M with some sexually explicit scenes.* Wyatt and Mikey are young, fresh into their careers—and still have a lot to learn about themselves. A chance encounter on the bus grows into something infinitely more meaningful. "It's an intelligently-told, sensitive and sexy novel about choices, life, love, and the painful process of growing up."
“Mikey said things in a way that invoked visions of us spending time together in the future. I considered this while I watched the sun set out my window. Beyond houses, buildings and occasional fields, all of it racing by, I caught flickers of open water and the far-off levee holding it at bay. The next few miles were peppered with conversation borne, still, out of an inscrutable dose of caution and unfamiliarity. How does one coax something from a void? What kind of enigmatic force conjures a friendship between strangers? How fragile those first times together must be, yet with so much depending on them. For one covert second, I swelled with sadness, not just because a continued relationship with this beautifully unchained boy was so improbable, but for the tragedy of all friendships that died in infancy.” (less)
Thoughtfully constructed. Real characters. Beautiful.
