My heart throbbed a merciless, rhythmic beat as I accepted just how precious he was to me.
Nick tumbled hard for the waifish imp crying over a crushed pink donut. They were only little boys, but those big tears caused Nick's protective instincts to flare and he was forever captivated.
Though the future beckoned, Nick felt conflicted. He had fallen in love, and his aching desire for Cameron had grown deeper than he ever imagined possible. While Nick had always offered Cam his unwavering support, Cameron's downward spiral of self-doubt and battle for self-reliance nearly push Nick to the edge of letting go.
The thought of him with someone else, loving someone else, wrecked me.
Cam realized he was a little different. He was artistic, flamboyant, and adored sparkly, pretty things. Endlessly bullied for not being “masculine enough”, Cam strived to discover his place in the world. College was supposed to help, but things weren’t going as planned.
Cam gained strength in Nick’s friendship, his personal knight in shining armor. A lifetime of indecisions paired with a surprising hunger for the one man who’d always been his anchor, propels Cam to face reality. Change was happening, whether he was ready or not.
“I promise I won’t ever leave you again, Cam. We’ll never be apart.”
Two men battle their hearts amidst an uncertain future.
When he can no longer hide his feelings, will Nick break his sacred promise to never leave Cam’s side even though his heart and body desperately crave the only man he has ever loved?
Can Cameron find the strength to believe in himself enough to follow his own path, or will his stubbornness keep him from chasing his own dreams and risk losing the man who’s always stood by him?

Best friends to lovers? Yes, please!
The snarky guy, who loves being himself, makeup and all? Oh, hell yeah!
Sweet sexy scenes that give depth to the relationship? Most definitely!
Cameron was easy to love. His personality, his snark, his love to see people blush. He wrapped me around his manicured finger so easily. Watching his evolution was heartbreaking and fun and made me proud. Cameron was this dynamic characters that couldn’t see his own strengthens and was in denial about his wants for his future.
Nick had been in love with his best friend for years. He never spoke up, never told Cameron because he feared he would lose him. People are starting to see the signs and some things are changing between them. A building tension that they never had was suddenly there. Nick is such a sweet guy with a heart of gold. He had given up so much just to be with the guy he loved even if it wasn’t reciprocated.
This was a long story that held my attention because of the characters this author created. Each one was strong and clear and had their own unique voice and brought something important to the story. From Blake to Tatum and Ian to Kylie and Ren to David. Every single one moved the story forward whether that be with their bad attitude, bad guy ways, best friend status, or constant blushing. I loved their families, their sense of humor, even their annoying sibling interferences.
I’m glad I decided to pick up a copy of this book and cannot wait for Tatum’s book later this year. If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it.
