This story had so much potential yet what did we "Get Instead 6281 Pages Of Sammy And Marc When They " instead 6281 pages of Sammy and Marc when they 18 followed by a 10 years later and a rushed and immature resolution with both of the MC shoved in a closet Stephani Hecht can do better and this basically read like a plot outline not a fully fleshed out book So much time was dedicated to meddling old neighbours rashes and talk when the boys were teenagers that there was no room left for the fact that they were separated for so long had so much between them they needed to settle and were oing to need a really long talk to make up for it I didn t find the reason for the separation believable it was actually very weak and a ten year period of feelings of abandonment hurt and incomprehension were magically solved in under 3 minutes which was underwhelming We Atlantic Double-Cross: American Literature and British Influence in the Age of Emerson get nothing about what their lives have been like since their separation the blurb actually tells us than they do The whole book was basically the one scene of when they were 18 and their unsatisfying reunion When I read in Stephani s blog that we would beetting 2 books a month I was excited But if this is what we re Awakening Spaces: French Caribbean Popular Songs, Music, and Culture going toet uantity over uality I d rather wait for a decent book that took time to write This one at least would have benefited from it I was not impressed This story basically covers TWO DAYS of Marc and Sammy s life One day in the past which is than half of the story and one day in the present where Marc and Sammy Meet Again I DO again I DO the past portion of this series It s just entertaining to see how Marc and Sammy s trying to deal with obstacles like evil dog and allergy to strawberries to finally seal the deal I have a soft heart for young best friend who fall in love with one anotherIt s the present portion that I don t like 1 Solving the 10 years apart issue and the anger that Sammy has for Marc in ONE DAY not even one day just one scene inside a wardrobe closet is just waaaay too easy and too rushed Plus the reasons are pretty lame in my opinion 2 This sort of RUIN the timeline that I can remember I mean in Blast from the Past where Marc and Sammy appear for the first time they don t see. Best friends in high school Marc and Sammy each harbored a secret attraction for the other but neither dared act on their feelings for fear of ruining their friendship Finally one night during the summer after their senior year they ave in to their desires and had a passionate encounter Wellas passionate as possible when one of them had a dog bite the other an al. So rushed even with their being separated by a really lame reason for 10 years you haven t developed any feelings towards these characters so there is no angst or anything THIS IS THE 3RD BOOK IN STEPHANI S FRIENDS TO LOVERS SERIESSuper cute short and sweet friends to lovers romance I loved it I still liked this one but I concur on most of the other
reviwes the past part was way too long and the contemporary part the past part was way too long and the contemporary part cramped and not satisfying enoughWaiting for the next part of the series This book is kind of divided into part of the series This book is kind of divided into parts The first 23 of the book is Sammy and Marc as high school raduates who have been best friends since Sammy moved to town Although they knew each other was Alliance Rising: The Hinder Stars I (Alliance-Union Universe) gay they finallyet together and it s amazing being each others first However Marc s Mom is a loser and abusive and when she reveals some information he is sure will cause Sam to hate him at the same time she s up and moving them to another town he leaves without telling Sammy why and it breaks Sammy s heart he thinks he s been used Years later Marc is a film maker who wasn t to do a film using Sammy s GLBT centre and despite his feelings Sammy agrees and their friends decide it s time for the two to talk whether they like it or not To be honest I thought Sammy Back of the Yards: The Making of a Local Democracy gave in too uickly LOL Yeah I m mean that way Apparently Marc had been talking to their friends for years but refused to contact Sammy and everyone was but you didn t contact him Umm yeah he didn t walk out without a word It wasn t on him to explain or ask forgiveness I wouldn t have minded the ending being drawn out as most of the story was them at age 18 rather than at age 30something but the romance of friends to lovers as kids was sweet and intense as young love often is and Sammy s elderly neighbor was a hoot I enjoyed the set up and idea but this was not my favorite thing from her I felt that this book was a bit too short to reallyet into the characters especially since we had a section when they were kids and then a section when they were adults I wish time had been taken to reunite them I Body by Darwin: How Evolution Shapes Our Health and Transforms Medicine guess But I still love this author and will always read everything she writes.

M to have any problem in the present So when does this story happen If this story happens before that book why don t Marc and Sammy are said to be a couple But if it s after there is no saying that Marc and Sammy have been apart for 10 years or that they have animosity between them Of course this is based solely on my memory which might be wrong but I don t think I am Thus the 3 stars rating uite disappointed in this am Thus the 3 stars rating uite disappointed in this I m a fan of Ms Hecht s work so for me to read such a failure put me in a really bad mood I thought it would be about the struggling romance between two people who need to be together but refuse to THeir resolution at the end happened far too uickly and their realtionship "FROM WHEN THEY WERE LIKE 18 JUST DRAGGED ON " when they were like 18 just dragged on annoyed with this book Oh and when you find out that the man you are in love with s father murdered your Blue Guide grandfather you don tet over it THAT uickly Jesus does no romance novel these days even bother with at least a little sembalance of reality Cute mm romance about two uys who have one awkward night together right after high school then don t have any contact
with each other for ten years Hm To my surprise the bulk of this story was set teneach other for ten years Hm To my surprise the bulk of this story was set ten previously and described their virginal first time together Then the briefest present time wrap up about why Marc left back then and did not try to see Sammy again Sadly that part fell shortThe teenage story actually felt sweet and kind of funny and provides the entire reason for the three star rating I just did not et sufficient resolution and happiness in the end and Birth and Fortune: The Impact of Numbers on Personal Welfare given how much they profess to have loved each other for eleven years they really have not done anything about it since that one time I reuire somerounding for thatStill the teenage bit as much as I usually avoid that sort of thing amused and even touched meStupid that the ending does not deliver 25 stars maybe way too short 65% of the book is there one time together before being separated for 10 years then everything is resolved within 10 minutes of them being reunited the book just felt unsatisfying and rushed Overall nothing every really happens and the book is.
