We continue the story of Hugo and Kevin, who met as teenagers, but things all fizzled out when they went to College, but this was due more to Kevin having a homophobic father than anything else. You really do feel for Kevin, as he wants to be with Hugo, but as his divorce is close to being finalised, he is afraid of what will happen is he comes out. Although his father has died, it is like he still has a hold over Kevin, and I think this frightens Kevin even more. He wants his kids to have a stable life and he seems more or less convinced that bad things will happen if he comes out to his children and his ex Erin.
However, everything changes when Erin gets awful news, and all of a sudden it seems to Hugo that Kevin is ignoring him. This takes Hugo back to previous boyfriends, and he soon convinces himself that Kevin wants nothing to do with him, and also blames himself as he had told Kevin that he would not be pushed back into the closet – he decides this all on his own, and hasn’t even tried to see Kevin.
Kevin eventually goes to see Hugo, and as soon as he sees him Hugo realises that Kevin is in a very bad way, and eventually manages to get what has happened out of Kevin. This now means that everything will change, but is Hugo able to agree to what will change, or will he decide to walk away?
I am enjoying this series, as it is giving me more insight on how things can be wonderful one minute and then it can all come crashing down the next. Reading this book, you really get all the emotions from Hugo, Kevin and also Erin and the kids. It was hard to read at times as it was so sad, but you just have to continue reading to see what happens next. I look forward to reading the last book in the series, as I need to know if there is a HEA for Hugo and Kevin.
