Blurb: Life doesn’t come with a syllabus.
Ethan knows firsthand that long distance is hard on love. If Wyatt is spending his summer at an internship in Pittsburgh, that’s where Ethan will be. Even if it means inventing his own career goal just to find a reason to stay with his boyfriend. He didn’t expect they’d be living in a hot, crappy apartment, with work schedules that keep them apart more than together.
Wyatt’s past has taught him to keep his head down and focus on living through the day. Loving Ethan has him looking to the future for the first time; he’s just not in as big of a rush to get there. It’s hard to trust in happiness when life has been busy kicking you in the nuts.
Together they’re getting the hang of real life, when a new responsibility for Wyatt throws everything off balance. Ethan’s doing everything he can to prove he’s in this forever, while Wyatt is torn between a future with Ethan and a debt to the past. Too bad they didn’t cover this in college.
I so wanted to love this book, and this series. K.A. Mitchell is an auto-buy author for me, but this one, though it had many parts that I loved, just didn’t have enough oomph for me to love it. I was hoping that once they got settled in their relationship that they would move onto acting like men instead of high school boys. They are young, I get that, but I just could not relate to them as mature or even college students.
In the end, I was glad I’d read the entire series, but I was left wanting more. Maybe that’s because this author has knocked my socks off with some of her other series that I set the bar too high? Whatever it is, I am still a major fan and will no doubt push people out of my way to grab her next book.
Overall Impression: I liked it
