Alternative M/M Contemporary Romance
Rating: 4 Cups
Loving being his own boss, but working non-stop is just about killing Jack Warner. He has no life beyond the book store, and his only real friend stirs desires in him he is afraid to act on.
His job at the salon is crap, but it has one very important thing going for it, it is close to The Bookworm. Every day Rain Underwood gets to look out, and ogle his best friend, and wish for the millionth time it could be more.
With little or no time for a social life, Jack’s experiences are extremely lacking, so making the first move is never going to happen. He has feelings for Rain, but their friendship means too much for him to mess it up. Rain has played the field plenty of times, and paid the price for more than one bad decision, but Jack has always had his back. Everything always comes back to Jack, and Rain will have to decide if he is man enough to put it all on the line.
Jack and Rain are so young and vulnerable at this point in their lives, and it is heartening to see how much they respect their friendship. It is also scary to imagine someone as young as Rain putting himself into such dangerous positions, but Jack is there for him every time, and never judges. Their relationship goes far beyond the physical, and I would love to see that explored more fully. They are on the cusp of a wonderful love affair, and it makes you smile to have read their story.
