This one is a very strange but satisfying story.

Reed and Drew have been lovers since two years. There is a lot of problems between them: Reed, sixteen years older than Drew, his also Drew's father employees and best friend, and Drew is Reed's son best friend. Reed is a widow since six years and even if he had some gay experience back at the college, he was faithful to his wife and, even after her death, he remained in the closet, for the sake of his three sons. On the other hand, Drew, openly gay, had a sore experience with his former lover, who has left him high and dry when he most needed a lover by his side.

They have a hidden relationship, stolen weekend here and there. But this time Reed is seriously thinking to put an end to the relationship, not only fearing the possible reaction of his sons but also that his younger lover sooner or later will leave him for a man nearer his age. Drew on the other hand, has not at all overcome the pain of his former lover abandoon, and fears that also Reed will leave him. This ping pong of feelings is masterly decipts by Adrianna Dane who alternates the point of view between the two characters.

And another thing I love very much is the intimacy between the two lovers, and the very heartwarming scene of Drew who looks at his lover sleeping, rethinking at their first encounter, and looking at the clock waiting the right moment to wake him.

Hidden Impact is a rather short story, less than 60 pages, but it's very well plotted and original. I only would like to read a longer novel, that span from their first encounter to the weeks after the one features in this book. It's not a complaint, the book is very good as it is, mine is only a desire.
