When we first meet Kevin and Hugo, they are both young, and it seems like it takes a while before they realise that they may be best friends, but there are other feelings there too. Feelings that Kevin keeps well hidden, so afraid of what will happen if his father finds out about them. Kevin's father comes across as very controlling and worse. He makes the decisions of where Kevin will study and what he will study too.
Hugo's life is so different, his father is ill and it really does take a toll on Hugo. He is devastated when his father dies, and turns to the only person who he thinks will understand, and that is Kevin. By chance, Kevin is able to comfort Hugo, and things do get hot and heavy between them.
The two lose contact when they go to different colleges, and although it seems like Kevin has moved on as he is married and has children, Hugo just couldn't forget Kevin.
When Kevin and Hugo meet again, the old feelings soon come rushing back for both of them, but Hugo may be out and proud, but Kevin has never told anyone that he is bisexual, plus add into this a secret that Hugo has and things are destined never to run smooth.
We are then taken on a journey with Kevin and Hugo, and how they both realise that there are feelings that will not go away, but Kevin is technically still married, and there are his children to think about. It is not going to be an easy journey, and you really do go through the mill with them both, knowing exactly how each other is feeling. Is what they are feeling strong enough to survive what fate has in store for them?
If you like reading series, then this is a brilliant first book to read, but if you wish to devour in one sitting, then wait until all three are out and then spend your day living through the trials and tribulations of Hugo and Kevin in one sitting - I can guarantee that I will reading this series again.
