Nate and Cody have been best friends since childhood and they are as close as close can be. When Nate is involved in a life altering accident, Cody rushes to be by his side. It becomes apparent that Nate’s boyfriend is looking for an out to go back to his ex, after all he didn’t sign up to be a carer especially when it interferes with his modelling life. Good job that Cody is ready to step in and help his lifelong friend. With the closer proximity and Nate’s initial dependency on Cody, will this open the door to the feelings they have both been suppressing since they were seventeen?
I absolutely loved this book and the way the lifelong friends become so much more. There was oodles of passion and chemistry between the pair, although it wasn’t all about the sex as this was kept low key but it was where the reader's mind was taken that made it so much more than an erotic read would have for these characters. The tension was sizzling and tangible throughout. The storyline was so emotional especially how Nate went through his coping with becoming blind and his despair at not being able to do his award winning sculpturing anymore. But it was Cody’s support and determination to build Nate’s confidence back up that was a joy to see transpire and the impact it had on them both. There were points I was shouting at each of them ‘Just tell him how you really feel!’ throughout. I was so invested in seeing them find that happy ever after together. When they eventually did take a chance it was so unbelievingly heart-warming and set forth a whirlwind of emotions.
This is a definite must read and I highly recommend this compelling but heart felt romance of two gorgeous best friends becoming the love of each other’s life. Amazingly good. Five stars.
What would you do if you suddenly lost your sight? This is what happens to Nate but it affects him so much more because he is a sculptor with rapidly rising fame. His current boyfriend is a model and he does do his shallow, minimal best to deal with a man who has to learn a new way to live his life. Fortunately, Nate's best friend since childhood, Cody, is right there by his side, giving his loyal support and encouragement. Despite a brief teenage liaison, that ended almost as quickly as it began, they've maintained a strong friendship.
Susan Mac Nicol has done a stellar job of depicting a man struggling to regain his sense of self-worth. She developed a somewhat similar theme in [book:Love You Senseless|23350137], so I was confident of a well researched experience. It's not a depressing story, in spite of the tragedy. Nate does move forward with learning the skills he needs but has little faith that he can practice his art. Much of the book follows his recovery, his struggle to overcome doubts about ever being independent, and dealing with additional personal and emotional troubles. He doesn't wallow in it or throw pity parties, so the story develops an uplifting storyline.
Cody is a marvelous character, who has his own burdens to bear where Nate is concerned. He owns an art gallery and with that expertise, as well as knowing Nate for so long, believes he can eventually return to creating his art. It's an uphill battle at times but Cody has such a positive outlook and patient disposition. The secondary characters are done well, including Suzanne (hmm, wonder where that name came from), Nate's therapist/trainer for the blind. I like having a strong, positive female representation in a MM book. There's also Dev and Blu, who have less predominant roles but still add needed elements. Unfortunately there's also homophobic parents creating heartbreak and trouble.
The story is also far less steamy than most of Susan's books. It detracts nothing from the story and I honestly didn't miss extra scenes. It did have lots of love and warmth with wonderfully developing friendships. I can recommend this for lovers of second chances and hurt/comfort.
