This was in a way was a comedy. We have boy who likes boy in High School, but neither acts on it. It doesn’t help that they are from rival schools.
This was my first foray into Jeff Adams’s world, a world I would like to revisit. This was a quick story but it covered just what needed to be said. We have a brief history about Mitchell and his family and a recount of the High School rivalry (and infatuation) between Mitchell and Alex. What made this romantic romp good was that I truly believed that this happened, the story was told as real life. There wasn’t anything that led me to believe that this was some sort of porn shoot. Sex was good and just enough to add to the story.
I want to mention Mitchell’s brother Trevor, what a fantastic secondary character, loved him. This is a great passage from the book with Trevor.
“So what’re your intentions towards my brother?” isn’t this the type of brother that all LGBTQ people should have?
I did a lot of smiling throughout this read, it is definitely a feel good book.
Mitchell Turner and Alex Goodman squared off over a face-off dot throughout high school. Their schools were cross-country rivals. Those face-offs were tough on Mitchell because he harbored a huge crush on Alex. High school, and college, are behind the guys and they meet unexpectedly on Thanksgiving Day, once again on the ice. Mitchell is home for the holidays and is thrilled to see his crush all grown up.
Alex asks Mitchell out for coffee to catch up. Could this be the start of something magical for the holidays … and beyond?
