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.
I have no idea what I expected when I began to read this story but was I ever surprised! It was a ‘Visit Your Past Life‘ a la Ebenezer Scrooge to help Ethan get to where he needed to be. I LOVED it! Jude and Ethan were both immanently likable characters and their relationship seemed completely organic and natural, absolutely meant to be. I would love to have a relationship like theirs where you had known one another basically your entire lives! Their intimacy was emotionally tender and hot at the same time and again, most appropriate for the stage of their relationship.
Super clever, I found the story interesting, engaging and the story telling innovative. I am more and more impressed with CC the more I read his writing. I would absolutely recommend this book to true romantics, lovers of M/M stories and those who crave a HEA. Once again, Cardeno C does not disappoint.

About Author Cardeno C:
CC to friends – is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few “awwws” into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.
Heartwarming Stories. Strong Relationships. Forever Love.
