Blurb: A relationship-challenged actor unexpectedly finds love in the arms of his childhood best friend.
“Sexiest Man Alive” and Golden Globe-winning actor Ethan Baker lights up the screen but fizzles in his personal life. When his latest girlfriend breaks up with him, Ethan turns to his one “forever” person – Jude Harrison. But as Ethan makes the familiar drive to his best friend’s house, an unexpected detour and a bewildering passenger take him through places in time he’d long forgotten. Suddenly, Ethan sees Jude’s actions over the years from a different perspective, but it’s his own reaction that’s the biggest surprise.
Review: This is a short story that recently got re-released.
Ethan, a self-absorbed actor, has been best friends with Jude most of his life. Jude is his anchor in a storm, and the one place Ethan knows he can be himself.
Jude has been in love with Ethan since the moment they first met, but Ethan didn’t know.
One night, after yet another break-up with a woman, Ethan meets a stranger on the highway who takes him on a Dickensian journey through time to show him another view-point of events leading up to the current moment in time.
Luckily, he finally figures out what he’s meant to see and finds Jude to confront him on his feelings.
It’s a very short, sweet story that makes you smile and sigh and – just as all Cardeno’s stories do – feel good inside.
I loved that when Ethan finally figures things out, he and Jude just jump in, no questions asked. Though Ethan hadn’t ever been with a man, he didn’t let that slow him down one bit.
Review – Audio: John Solo did a great job with this. Nothing flashy, good when there were women’s voices. Very easy to listen to and a nice way to experience this story.
Overall Impression: I loved it
