Sometimes, all it takes to find what you need is to look closely at what has been there all along.
Roommates Jed and Doyle have been best friends since meeting in college. They have supported each other through all their ups and downs. Now that they've graduated and are starting new jobs, they have no intentions of letting that change anything. Doyle is everything Jed isn't—smart, cute and active at the LGTB center. Jed has always looked out for his friend and been there for him. They have plans and an amazing friendship, everything planned out to the smallest degree.
Any changes could make it all go off the rails. So why can't Jed get over how annoying he finds Doyle's ex turned friend, who seems to be around way too often? Why can't he stop noticing Doyle in new ways?
If Jed doesn't take a risk, he could miss what's been there all along.
First, the cover is beautiful!
This is a short story of best friends turned lovers Jed and Doyle. Without Jed realizing it the two have built a life together one that includes their future together. When feelings, ones that Jed doesn’t understand, start to change the very bases of their friendship if he doesn’t take a chance and see Doyle different then he always did he could risk losing what could be.
I loved these two characters so much. The author did a great job giving us the full picture of their friendship, the struggle they have as Jed starts to realize his feelings for Doyle shift, and of course the way Doyle goes about trying to get Jed to see him as more than a friend or the boy he always protected was freaking hot. The chemistry that slowly builds between these two as the story progresses was perfect for the story.
My only issue is that they come together and then, it ends. There’s a HFN ending but it still felt cut short. I think an epilogue would’ve helped complete the story so much better than the way the author ended it. Still a cute and sexy short story!
