I wasn't sure what to expect - gay man falling for his straight best friend has been handled in quite a few books. But this was masterful. It was a slow seduction - from being a good friend to one who needs it, to slow attraction, to seduction to full on love - each step is realistically handled. There was no jump from 'hey we're buds' to shagging like minks - it was slow and steady and just beautiful. I loved it - I liked David and Trace as people, cared how they handled everything and when I finished reading it gave a happy sigh with a grin on my face.

The love-making scenes were hot without being overly explicit. Think slow burn rather than sudden conflagation. Definitely definitely be re-reading those *ahem blush* because they were really really hot. And well written. And evocative. And yeah, I guess you get the picture.

All in all, a well known theme handled extremely well, a lovely story and a satisfying read. Don't let this book get away.

This is a great novel on the art of seduction. Unlike the majority of stories in this genre, it is not pornographic, although there is a little descriptive sex, rather it is a slow, sensual seduction. Storywise...not a lot happening, but this is such a good read. The two protagonists are very likeable, the writing is decriptive without being flowery and very, very sensual.
I admit to wondering how a novel opening in the throws of David's migrane would progress, but then David's straight, best friend turns up to help and the seduction starts. Well worth a read. Enjoyed every minute. No bad moments, all ends happily ever after.

When Dave breaks his shoulder his fellow journalist and best friend, Trace, moves in to help him. Dave is gay and Trace is straight - well as straight as any man is who has got to 40-ish without having sex with another man but who wears black silk boxers, sleeps in the same bed as Dave, strokes his hair and gives him the occasional kiss. You know from page one where this is going to end up but the long, slow seduction is charming, romantic and sexy.
And the two guys end in bed together happily ever after.

Although it's a bit of an likely scenario since the two guys have been best friends for years, I found I just couldn't put it down. Yes it was fairly obvious from the start where this was going, but the story was handled well and gently built up to a great ending.
