    This was an enjoyable friends to lovers story with likable characters, but it required a lot of skimming on my part It took YEARS from them meeting to become lovers so they could get to the issue demanded by the prompt I skipped at least a third of the story because it went into great detail about sports, something I found uninteresting and irrelevant Do I even want to know what a goofy foot is, or how to attach wheels to a skateboard, or the exact routine of a snowboarding set The internal This was an enjoyable friends to lovers story with likable characters, but it required a lot of skimming on my part It took YEARS from them meeting to become lovers so they could get to the issue demanded by the prompt I skipped at least a third of the story because it went into great detail about sports, something I found uninteresting and irrelevant Do I even want to know what a goofy foot is, or how to attach wheels to a skateboard, or the exact routine of a snowboarding set The internal dialog of the MC could go on for pages too, and I tuned out after a few sentences Of course the sex, when they finally got to it, was little different than any other gay male sex scene you ve ever read except as dictated by the prompt I loved the interaction between Shane and Nathan, but even that became somewhat repetitive and tedious by the end.I did enjoy some local color that was added I plan to check out the Denver ice cream shop next time I m there Some of the secondary characters were enjoyable, such as Shane s parents, but others were barely fleshed out I completely forgot who Zane was when he was mentioned in the epilogue The band references were wasted on me as I had only heard of a few.So yes I d readabout these two in their next adventure, as long as it is pared down a bit.Oh yeah, this is one of the very few stories here with absolutely no typos or errors that I caught

    This story was way too long for me The idea of the story was great but because it lasted too long, the spark didn t stay Do I make sense Probably not Look, I really liked Shane and Nathan and slowburning love is something I usually love This one was just okay But if I have to think about parts that would be cut out, I can t imagine wich part So maybe, yeah, I don t know And I have to say, it was so nice and refreshing to read about Shane s problems view spoiler with anal sex Becau This story was way too long for me The idea of the story was great but because it lasted too long, the spark didn t stay Do I make sense Probably not Look, I really liked Shane and Nathan and slowburning love is something I usually love This one was just okay But if I have to think about parts that would be cut out, I can t imagine wich part So maybe, yeah, I don t know And I have to say, it was so nice and refreshing to read about Shane s problems view spoiler with anal sex Because I think sex isn t always awesome and can sometimes be hard and not everyone enjoys it Sex isn t always a party And to read about that and how Nathan and Shane care about each other is so nice It shows that you have to talk, have to be honest and that if you have an honest and lovely partner, you can make it work hide spoiler The only thing I know is that I would love to readabout them

    4.5 stars, and it only losses.5 of a star because of my own personal tastes, but that s what the prompt called for Proffer this one I should really reread it now it s all done

    First off I have to thank Mike for writing this story I was worried when I submitted the prompt that people were gonna be a bit put off by the whole concept, and the way you were so excited to write this made me really happy Also, so so so so soooo sorry about taking so long to read this I know it has almost been a year While I must admit that snowboarding isn t something I m all that interested in, I did find that I liked learning about the sport And any sport that takes place in the First off I have to thank Mike for writing this story I was worried when I submitted the prompt that people were gonna be a bit put off by the whole concept, and the way you were so excited to write this made me really happy Also, so so so so soooo sorry about taking so long to read this I know it has almost been a year While I must admit that snowboarding isn t something I m all that interested in, I did find that I liked learning about the sport And any sport that takes place in the cold is alright by me There were also times where I certainly wanted Shane and Nate to finally figure shit out, but watching their friendship and relationship grow was fun too And I am once again thankful that Mike took my prompt to heart in regards to the whole anal sex issue For something that is supposedly not all that uncommon in gay culture, it certainly doesn t transfer over into the m m genre all that often unless it is used as a one off reassurance that no, love, of course we don t need to fuck but then they of course do I loved that Mike captured Shane s struggles, as well as Nate s love and acceptance Thanks for taking care of my guys, Mike It was a lovely story

    This was the first book I ve read by this author, and I was impressed I really enjoyed the story, and liked the MC s a lot I enjoyed the slow building relationship, how the friendship was really established before the relationship developed further Other s have stated that it was too involved with the sports theme, but I had no real problems with it, but that might have to do with a lot of my friends being involved in the professional snowboarding scene The story does kind of meander a littl This was the first book I ve read by this author, and I was impressed I really enjoyed the story, and liked the MC s a lot I enjoyed the slow building relationship, how the friendship was really established before the relationship developed further Other s have stated that it was too involved with the sports theme, but I had no real problems with it, but that might have to do with a lot of my friends being involved in the professional snowboarding scene The story does kind of meander a little bit, but I enjoyed it has a whole

    The characters spent the first two thirds having a story line, but no sex, and the last third having sex, but no story line.And all the exciting things were only summarized after the fact we d learn they were going to a concert, and then the MC would tell us how it was a week later.

    Deep sigh.I feel obligated to start with this Spain, where the Day of the Dead was a pretty big deal Dear writer As a spaniard, I am sorry to inform you that El D a de los Muertos is, in fact, entirely NOT a thing in Spain It is possible that you were thinking about Mexico Completely different places.Here s litterally all the research you needed to do on the matter, along with some info that might be useful to you for future reference Please, do check it out.Now with that out of the way, le Deep sigh.I feel obligated to start with this Spain, where the Day of the Dead was a pretty big deal Dear writer As a spaniard, I am sorry to inform you that El D a de los Muertos is, in fact, entirely NOT a thing in Spain It is possible that you were thinking about Mexico Completely different places.Here s litterally all the research you needed to do on the matter, along with some info that might be useful to you for future reference Please, do check it out.Now with that out of the way, let s get to the review.I m all for slow burn friends to lovers, I really am My problem here is that this doesn t feel like a slow burning romance it feels like years 65% of the story of pure, unadultered friendship without a single straying thought that might sugest otherwise, which one day suddenly turns into something romantic view spoiler suddenly as in, one page has Shane thinking that Nathan is his best friend and he just can t think of him any other way and never will, and the next has him telling Nathan that he s in love with him, all within the same scene, no transition hide spoiler but still chaste because they want to take things slow, and after a few weeks of that, one day suddenly turns into a quite unbelievable sex marathon where they must have sex a promedium of about seven times a day because they can t keep their hands off each other I got whiplash.The two main characters themselves and their personalities are well depeloped enough There are virtually no secondary characters They do have friends, we know they exist, but they are faceless voiceless shadows in the background They have parents, and they are fortunate enough to even have some actual dialogue, but it s only a couple of polite conversations.This is mostly due to a whole lot of telling and no showing, not usually the best choice in storytelling, in my opinion.Besides the relationship, the biggest subplot is Shane s carrer as professional snowboarder I usually have no problem with sports being prominent in books, but in this case it got way too technical at some points, I had to skip paragraphs because I couldn t understand anything, it was all gibberish to me Besides that, Shane is pretty much perfect at what he does, the very best of the very best, capable of miracles no one else can do it gets boring.I think the prompt was followed and dealt with perfectly, when we finally got to it.This was far too long, it was kind of entertaining, but nothing great
