Mel finally gets to go home for Christmas. In his absence, his hometown has changed, and Carlos, his best friend’s little brother, is all grown up and interested in a relationship. But Carlos has his work cut out for him since Mel’s having trouble seeing past the little brother part and his big brother, Aldo’s determined to keep them apart.
Mel hasn’t been home in more than six years and there have been a lot of changes since he left. Carlos has always has eyes for his brother’s best friend since he realized he liked boys.
Carlos has a little work cut out for himself but it doesn’t take all that long for Mel to melt. I had a little bit of a hard time with the “Love More” philosophy that Carlos had but hoped it works out for them. It broke my heart to basically see Mel’s best friend, Aldo, throw away their friendship with his attitude and actions towards Mel in regards to his brother. I can’t help but feel there will never be a way to really repair the damage he caused by his assumptions and actions.
The cover art by Freddy MacKay is great and gives a good visual for the characters.
