“Jenson has loved Mike his whole life, but he has never known how to tell Mike how he feels. After high school Mike leaves for college and his Hollywood dream, while cowboy Jenson stays behind in their small East Texas hometown. Neither man knows what to say to go beyond friendship, even though they come together through all of the best and worst times of their lives. The most amazing moments keep bringing them back together, but through huge love and terrible loss, sickness and health, their timing never seems right to take their relationship to the next level. When the universe gives them one final chance, Jenson must overcome his fear and say the most important something before it’s too late.”
This story follows the relationship of Jenson and Mike over the years. Sometimes they’re together and other times they’re not but always they remain friends. I thought this was such a gorgeous read, I couldn’t put it down and there were several times where it was so emotional that I found myself weeping. I was frustrated with both main characters quite often but that didn’t stop me from loving this story, it just made me appreciate how human the men were with their flaws. These aren’t perfect guys by any long shot but they are perfect for each other. The journey it took to get to their HEA was worth every tear.
I do have a question for the author, what happened to Ricky? I thought he and Mike were good friends so i hoped we would’ve at least seen him a couple more times down the road. Did I read it so fast that I missed some of the story?
This is an angsty beautifully written love story between friends who over the years are disappointed with each other but never stop relying on what’s a grounding relationship for them both. Their HEA is tarnished but I found it stronger for the trials and richer for the fight it took to get them there. I’m giving Say Something an A-
