Blurb:Note to Reader: This novel contains sexual situations involving heterosexual, as well as homosexual couples.
When Heather Cooper married Peter, she thought that she had finally found someone who could handle the inseparable bond she shares with her gay best friend, Justin Perrotta. It’s only a matter of time, however, before jealousy rears its ugly head and Peter’s true feelings emerge. He starts drinking and his erratic behavior threatens their marriage.
Burned by an ex-boyfriend, Justin refuses to open his heart to love again. Wild relationships and one-night stands leave him lonely and unfulfilled, even though he will not admit it. He finds love when he least expects it, but his fear of commitment threatens to ruin the best thing that has ever happened to him.
In this modern day ‘Will and Grace’ meets ‘Sex and the City’, two best friends, a straight woman and a gay man, struggle to find someone to love as much as they love each other.
Review: Heather and Justin have been friends practically since they were born. They love each other and nothing or no one could ever come between them. The only thing is, Justin is gay, Heather is straight, and their love is more of a brother sister love not physical.
I was pleasantly surprised by this story. I couldn’t put it down once I started. I loved the bond Justin and Heather shared. I found the story sweet even if there were a few things that were a bit hard to believe. This is fiction anyhow and who would not want the love these two shared. The only thing I truly missed was there was no backstory of Justin or his family. There was Heather’s mother briefly, but nothing on Justin and he was always at Heather’s.
This is a very character driven story, going through Heather and Justin as they grow up and age. There are a couple little twists that had me on the edge of my seat but made me love Justin even more.
I recommend this if you like deep emotional stories, tight friendships, both Gay and hetero sex (not mixed or not any threesomes) and an all-over interesting love story.
