*~~*ARC kindly provided by the author to me in exchange for an honest review *~~*


I enjoyed this story although I share the other reviewer’s point that the grunge Sam was holding against Charlie was misguided and the resolve in this matter was pretty interesting though Sam’s intensity not liking Charlie was a bit over the top in parts.

Nontheless the book was a solid read and I was hooked by Sam and Charlie. 🙂 The chemistry is there, and, as I said, Sam is dealing with his grunge against Charlie which makes his interest for Charlie pretty divided. He can’t deny that Charlie is charming, something very different from the guy he knows from school.

It’s interesting how the author is able to deliver this story based on prejudices and false assumptions, how easy it is to judge a character and how it can change when you know both sides and the truth behind.

This book also plays with passed moments and wrong timing. This to and fro is in parts entertaining but also mildly frustatring so that you want to grab the character’s and shake them. xD

5 out of 5 stars for this. 🙂

There are two sides to every story, even those buried in the past.

When Sam spots the hot guy moving in next door, he’s all for going round to introduce himself. That soon changes when it turns out his new neighbour is in fact an old school acquaintance, Charles Whitmore. Sam didn’t like him back then, and fifteen years haven’t altered that.

Splitting up from his long-term boyfriend means a move across the city for Charlie. As luck would have it, his immediate neighbour is a guy he went to school with, Sam Gellar. While Sam is less than welcoming, his best mate is more than happy to invite Charlie into their social circle. Whatever problem Sam has with Charlie, Charlie resolves to get to the bottom of it, because, frosty beginnings aside, Charlie likes him.

With Christmas just around the corner, fate thrusts them together, and they get on so much better than they ever did at school. Despite his efforts not to, Sam develops feelings for Charlie, and they appear to be reciprocated. If Sam wants to take things further he needs to either confront Charlie about their past–a past Charlie seems to have forgotten entirely–or let it go and move on. Sam knows deep down that he can’t let it go, but it never seems the right time to bring it up. Until it is.
