This was a really sweet romance that began when both Eric and Dean were still in their teens but sadly ended when circumstances separated them. Eric had to go with his parents to another country as his father was in the military while Dean stayed got left behind wanting. Letters exchanged were not enough when the teen life got in the way.
Now, fifteen years later, an accidental meeting at a movie theater reunited the two friends but their chemistry apparently had never lost its sizzling reaction so they hooked up once more. They still loved each other after all these years and somehow, their being more experienced and older in more ways than one served to get their teen relationship into more solid and mature grounds. The only things in the way were their chosen careers. Now all they have to do is make the long distance affair work or give up.
I had never read this before so I wouldn't really know how that first edition went. All I know is that I fell for these two men. What I really liked about this one? It was truly sweet!!! Made me smile all throughout and just pushed the right buttons before bedtime.
