    This is a lovely, easy going book with two bland, inoffensive characters There is no real tension, no conflict, and no real development either The two men meet when Roman is just 18 Matthieu is convinced that at 32, he s too old for Roman and after one night together Matthieu leaves For 7 years the two men live apart and experience their life until they find each other once again and Roman is determined they should be together and won t take no for an answer The prologue is almost 20 pages and sets up the one sexual encounter between Roman and Matthieu on Roman s 18th birthday The two men had only known each other a week but the chemistry was there and Roman wanted Matthieu badly This is the strongest part of the book as the two men are interesting contrasts Roman is very confident and knows exactly what he wants while the worldlier of the two, Matthieu, is racked with indecision The idea that Roman should experience and live his life is not a bad one and so the reason Matthieu leaves actually makes a lot of sense What doesn t make much sense is that when they reconnect seven years later, Matthieu still thinks he s too old for Roman Although there is a considerable age difference this doesn t play into the story except for some false tension It s so clearly manipulated and contrived since there is no question the two men will get together once they meet up again In fact they r...

    I ve enjoyed many of this author s stories but this one was a disappointing read for me Roman and Matthieu are nice enough characters but their romance never engaged me The fifteen year age difference between them was useful to create the book s tension but I just didn t get their love They only know each other for a week, have sex on Roman s 18th birthday and then don t see each other at all for seven years I just didn t buy the all consuming lo...

    This was an okay read, there wasn t a whole lot of character devolpment especially with Mathieu as I never really got the reason for rejecting Roman He kept mentioning not holding Roman back but what was the reason for this worry Was it personal experience, something he witnessed or...

    I found this to be really disappointing To me the story and characters seemed to be quite bland I kept hoping that something would happen to stir things up just a little bit but nothing ever did I kept thinking is this EVER going to end, I really had to force myself to finish it.

    Overall, I loved this book for the sweet, slow drawl, the perfect symbiosis between characters, setting and style It was an absolute joy to bask in this lazy summer journey with these characters and Ms Okati Read the rest of the review here

    It was not as enjoyable as I thought it would have been, it was long and it was not an exciting read I forced myself to finish it.
