Review: Cameron Lewis is in Florida for what should be a routine water safety training course – until his childhood best friend’s younger brother, Noah Winthrop, walks in to the room. Cameron has known Noah had a crush on him since he was a teenager and even spent some time with him at his brother’s wedding – but they haven’t seen or spoken to each other since. Cameron is faced with confronting potential feelings for Noah he didn’t know he had, is reputation as a professional trainer who would never be improper with a trainee, and the fact that Noah’s feelings don’t appear to have dwindled at all in the time they spent apart.
I actually liked the story overall – the characters are easy to get attached to and there are some great moments. But I felt like the overall story dragged and aspects of the central relationship were sort of just glossed over (there are references to domination and submission that just sort of come out of nowhere a few times but there’s never really an explanation of the discussion or resolution). That said, I recommend this for anyone looking for a good, sweet m/m romance.
