No one could compare to Phillip. Because Ryan was hopelessly, irrevocably in love with his best friend.
This was such an enjoyable read and I love Piper Vaughn’s writing style. It flows really nicely and it so pleasant to read. Both Ryan and Phillip were likable characters and their story is very emotional. I really enjoyed how deeply emotional this book was considering it was so short and just a snapshot in time for these guys. It’s really just a small piece of their romance and I’d love to know more about them but even with the shorter page count, the story still felt very full. I truly felt for Phillip and how his aunt’s prejudices really affected how he perceived his own sexuality. It makes you wonder how different his story might be if he had the chance to be who he really was from the beginning.

After the death of his aunt, Phillip Wynne is left adrift. He isn’t sure how to mourn the woman who raised him with so little affection. His only solace is his childhood friend, Ryan.
Ryan has always been the one bright thing in Phillip’s life, but while Ryan lives out and proud, Phillip is terrified by the feelings Ryan inspires in him. For years he’s kept them locked away, but when Ryan suddenly confesses his love, Phillip discovers that denying his own feelings might be the only thing scarier than finally owning up to them.
