I like it when Amy Lane writes angst free, and I’m not sure why I hadn’t tried this one before. It was cute.
Sebastian is best friends with Bella, has been for years. He goes home with her for the summer when her brother offers them to stay at his house with him and his 7 year old son.
It’s practically love at first sight for Sebastian and Asa, Bella’s brother. But Sebastian has his doubts about Asa, since Asa has never acted on his bisexual feelings before. But Asa reassures him it’s the real deal between them.
But 27 year old Sebastian has done everything in his power not to grow up, so he had planned to continue with his education after the summer. But then he has to leave Asa and his son, Jordan, behind…
Sebastian was pretty cute with his foot in mouth decease. I liked how there was no real angst within the relationship. These guys just hit it off and went for it.
I also liked Jordan, the kid, although for once it would have been nice to have a 7 year old boy act out instead of saying his heart is broken and be quiet (like an adult would do).
My experience with 7 year olds (I actually have one right now), is that they are not the best in explaining how they feel. They get angry or walk away when they feel hurt. And if they have an unstable parent I doubt they will just be quiet and get over it, like Jordan did in this.
As a divorced mother of 3 boys, who all have experience with a mentally unstable parent, I can tell you, it’s not easy! Frustration and anger are the main emotions at that age.
I wish all kids talked and acted like grown-ups, but in RL they almost never do….
Still, it was a nice story and I enjoyed it, even though I was a little bored every now and then.
