The really funny scene of Patrick calling his dog who is called Buddy in the darkening park one evening pulled me into this wonderful short story What held my attention, however, was the slowly emerging back story of who Patrick is, what had happened to him, and how he deals with meeting his ex lover Jasper again Clearly, the two have history, and this is the story of how they deal with it.Now, normally, I don t like flashbacks very much, because they pull me out of the story that happens NOW But, in this case, they were very well done, not too intrusive, and truly essential to understanding how Patrick and Jasper had fallen in love, how Patrick being in the Army had kept him in the closet, and how that had eventually chased Jasper away.Patrick is clearly conflicted about the whole thing, and doesn t have an easy time figuring out whether he wants to open up to Jasper again If you like stories about wounded men trying to figure out how they fit into their life s new reality, if you enjoy reading about reunions, and if you re looking for a read with a good balance between emotion and heat, the you will probably like this short story.NOTE This book was provided by Torquere Press for the purpose of a review. 3.5 HeartsReview written for MM Good Book ReviewsWell damn Talk about a quick read to rip your heart out and you shall get it Jeez, I m still a bit sad over this read, even as it ended well the happiness came hand in hand with the sadness and leaving a weird blend of emotions in its wake.So the blurb says than enough I only want to add that for such a short read both characters had a great appeal for me I was drawn to them, Patrick because he makes you want to hold and love him, and Jasper because he s so freaking cool, and toward the end there he was also so freaking erotic that makes you wanna jump his bones.Lovely writing, well set flashbacks, and a great story Yeah, if you re looking for a read with a full range of emotions this is it Recommended Thommie Patrick Wouldn T Say That The Last Thing He S Expecting While Walking His Dog Is To Run Into His Ex Partner He Did Move To Jasper S Favorite Town, After All But It S Still A Shock To The System Maybe Even So When They End Up On A Coffee Date Patrick S Disabilities, Caused By The Accident That Took Him Out Of The Army, Combined With Jasper S Lingering Resentment Over The Secrecy That Eventually Broke Them Up, Make For A Rocky First Date Is Practice Enough To Make Perfect This Time
