Rating: 3 stars out of 5
Jay Anderson lives next door to the ruggedly handsome man of his dreams, detective Drake Hanover. He wishes their friendship could turn into more, but there’s a problem — Drake’s ex-boyfriend, who has a habit of calling Drake after his breakups. After Drake once again caters to the whims of his ex, Jay about gives up hope Drake will ever see him as anything but the sweet, young twink next door.
Drake notices the sexy Jay — who wouldn’t? — but the decade age difference between them and his needy ex keep him from thinking he could ever be more than Jay’s friend.
When his ex’s behavior gets to be too much even for Drake and the selfish man manages to hurt Jay, Drake realizes his feelings for Jay go far beyond friendship. Now if he could just convince Jay before Jay becomes his ex-neighbor.
This was a sweet short story. Jay has stayed positive about the possibility of his and Drake’s relationship becoming more, but gives up when Drake’s ex hurts him. Drake realizes him and his ex are really over, but wants so much more with Jay.
I could feel Jay’s heart breaking when he knew Drake was going to run to his ex and then again when his ex makes some hurtful comments. Drake is so confused about his feelings and can’t seem to see what is right in front of him. When Drake finally gets over himself he quickly opens his heart to Jay and is determined to prove it.
The cover art is nice and works for the story.
