Six years ago, Jeff Beachum comforted a frightened teenager outside an HIV treatment clinic, and Collin Waters has remembered his kindness ever since. Now, after six years of crushing on the kind, brown-eyed sweetheart of his dreams, Collin is feeling adult and together enough to make his move. Too bad fate, which has never been kind to Jeff, has something else in mind.
Jeff’s life had fallen completely apart before that long-ago day, and it isn’t much better now. Jeff has toughened up, become self-reliant, been the funny guy his friends turn to, the one who gives advice and comfort when needed. But every phantom from Jeff’s past is about to come out to haunt him, and the family Jeff has staked his future on isn’t in such great shape either. Collin is more than a starry-eyed kid, and it’s a good thing, because Jeff’s going to need all the help he can get. No one knows better than Jeff that life can be too short to turn your back on honest love, and that living happily is the best promise of all.
In this book you get Jeff who has HIV. His first love dies in Afghanistan and he has not gotten over losing him.
Then there is Collin who was a wild child who constantly pushed limits after he father died right in front of him. He meets Jeff at the clinic and Jeff helps him by talking through things with him.
I really did like these two together.. You get the one who fights his feelings while the other pushes for him to admit them.
You get your angst with this book and the sweet also. Jeff has a lot of feelings he needs to work out in this book before he is ready for anything with Collin. When he realizes how much he cares for Collin let me just say the sparks between these two.. You also see a lot of the characters from the previous books in this series!
Now is were I will explain why I rated this 4 stars..
From some reason this book took awhile to grab me and I can not really explain why. I did like their story after everything between them got going.
So all together I really liked this book it just took me awhile to get into it.
I would recommend this book!
