Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5
A cute story, very short, but with a romance that works. In freshman year at college, Luke kissed Justin, the captain of the holiday team, at a frat party, and he’s never forgotten how wonderful it was. But Justin turned tail and ran, and after that night, totally ignored Luke.
Now at the end of senior year, Justin’s teammates are apparently singing Justin’s praises as if they were trying to persuade Luke how wonderful Justin is. But Luke doesn’t trust them, thinking it’s a hoax to haze him and he splits, heading home to nurse his anger at the closeted hockey player. Persistent, Justin hunts him down and finally convinces the sexy redhead geek that he really was foolish and really wants to start something now, before it’s too late and they separate after graduation.
This was quite sweet, with a lot of story packed into so few words. The author originally wrote it as part of the Love For All Seasons Anthology. It’s a quick read, but as I said sweet and with a nice HEA.
Cover designed by RJ Scott features headshots of two young men hugging each other. It’s attractive and would be nice except that Luke had red hair and both heads on the cover are brown, so though it’s cute, it isn’t representative of the story.
