Whilst the tale started well, it got bogged down in the middle in a repetition of the guys 'will they?won't they?' stuff and with all the hate going on around them, rather than the love story, I found myself thinking amongst other things, that this is one place in Australia I wouldn't ever want to visit, how could a father hate his kid so much and why would they continue to have any kind of relationship with the verbal and physical abuse and with the name-calling and threats, and why so many locals seemed like people who'd barely evolved. There was too much unnecessary filler and negativity and tbh, the romance took a back-seat to it all.
Yes, the author gave us an epilogue about 6 months into the leads future, but it wasn't clear if this was going to be a HEA or a HFN or where they were living and whether they were safe now. Did I believe in them? Not really, as North did too much of an about-face to make the tale credible.
With a good editor to provide balance and weed out the filler, and with less hate, hate, hate and more love, this could have been a great tale.
Will and North live in a small Australian town called Red Maine which also seems to be in the middle of nowhere. Will is openly gay and North used to be his best friend.
North Underwood has a father who is an alcoholic. A father who wouldn’t hesitate to use his hands to cause bodily damage to anyone who isn’t straight. At the beginning of this book, Will and North are estranged but they still seem to be drawn to each other. Their friendship has been in tatters for a long time since North did something to break Will’s heart. All the way through this book, I was team Will until the end when I firmly became Team North.
Will is gay, he doesn’t hide the fact that he’s gay. However, he lives in a town where the inhabitants of the town make it clear that they disapprove of his sexual orientation. His father doesn’t care who he loves, as long as he is happy but Will deep down has always loved his childhood best friend North. He’s been trying to hide his true feelings for North which has never changed, he’s always loved him. Always.
“How do you wake up every day and be exactly who you want to be?”
North misses Will (but doesn’t want to acknowledge who he truly is out of fear of the unknown), my heart wanted these two to finally accept themselves for who they are. I love the addition of Josh, the ‘stereotypical’ gay queen in a way, he made me smile but the sad fact is that even in this day and age, the world doesn’t approve. Will know he has never stopped loving North and he finally decides that it is time for him to do something about it.Read more ›
Two full grown men, Will Tanner and North Underwood, after putting their feelings on hold for so long, surrounded by a very bigoted community, finally accept their feelings.
School sweethearts, but North hid behind the hatred of the village, went from fling to fling with the female population, although he lived his life behind a veil of deception he had managed to make a reasonable name for himself.
Will, who had never hid his true feelings had also managed to live his life without too much drama, his dreams were put on hold after his dad had a stroke, but Will was determined to keep the business going.
When North finally accepted that it was Will he wanted, Will was what he was going to get.
North was relentless even though Will tried to steer him away, I am glad that North persevered, they were a great couple, I like Josh too, (Will's FB) and once North got Will, he became quite the possessive boyfriend.
North's dad was a dreadful man, and got his just desserts, not without both Will and North enduring such hate and hurt from him and his friends.
I am glad that Love won out, through it all. The epilogue was really light hearted definitely what was needed.
This story centres around two childhood friends who have lost their way a bit, and each other. One is openly gay in a small narrow-minded town. The other is so far in the closet I'm pretty sure he's going to start growing roots lol.
I enjoyed reading their story and liked both characters. Neither of them were perfect, not by a long shot. Will is prickly with plenty of mouth and a chip on his shoulder the size of the moon. Given the town he lives in and his past though, I guess he's earned it. North was equal parts swoon-worthy and majorly frustrating. Sometimes I seriously wanted to slap him upside the head and tell him to grow a pair lol. But even when I was frustrated I was definitely engaged in the story.
This is not the longest of books but, surprisingly, there was quite a lot to it. It was written well and the plot moved along nicely. There's plenty of hotness and angst but also humour, romance and seriousness as well. A good, well rounded story.
A very enjoyable read. Would definitely recommend to fans of MM romance, and even fans of normal romance.
4.5 stars :)
