Rating: 4 stars out of 5
Dr. Gabe Adler has had a crush on Chase, his best friend’s brother, since forever. But after one, sweet encounter Chase turned Gabe away and they haven’t spoken for years.
Then a midnight call from his best friend Dylan sends Gabe to the hospital. Chase had been shot in the line of duty and, with no family nearby, Gabe is the only one Dylan can trust to look out for his brother.
Gabe checks on Chase and realizes his injuries are even worse than expected. After Chase pulls through an emergency operation, he wakes up to Gabe watching over him. Will he kick Gabe out of his life again? Or can they make a new start?
A Long Road to Love is a short story full of love and hope. It shows that a relationship can withstand time and separation even when it’s based on a friendship.
It’s easy to see Gabe’s wanting and Chase’s need. Plus, it has a handful of promising secondary characters.
There’s no much interaction between the main characters but we learned about their past. This story could be the prologue to a full length novel. Which I would love to read.
The cover by Writing Ink Designs is very generic and pretty much has nothing to do with the story. The blurb definitely pulls more weight with the reader.
