What would you give up for love?
Raziel Slade and Jack Hastings have been best friends since Raz saved Jack’s life twelve years ago. Jack has spent years searching for the perfect woman with the help of his wingman, Raz, the man he thinks of as his guardian angel. At a company Christmas party, the world Jack thought he knew turns on its axis, and feelings he didn’t know he had punch him right between the eyes. Can Jack learn to see his friend in an entirely different way?
Openly gay, Raz loves his best friend and has given up more than Jack will ever know to be with him, but he’s never dared to tell Jack how he truly feels, or to reveal his true identity. For twelve years, he has waited in the wings.
Now, with Jack’s sudden epiphany, can these two best friends work out if they have a future together?
This was a sweet story. Raz was so in love with Jack. You can feel how much he cares right from the beginning. Jack is so adorably clueless about his own feelings and Raz’s. I liked how Jack was all in once he addmitted his feelings.
I wanted to know more about Raz’s past and what he gave up. It was alluded to and hinted at. But I wanted that storyline to be explored further.
There’s a sweet happy for now ending. There don’t seem to be any loose ends left to tie up, but I still want more from these characters. I’d love a sequel where we see these two in the future. Maybe where Raz tells Jack what he gave up to save him? Or at their wedding.
