Cameron is just out of a relationship with a woman, ended in a friendly way but that has left him with a void in his heart.

Eli, a gardener, broke with his last partner that left with their tools, and so now he is without work and lover.

They meet in an adult learning class art and Cameron notices Eli in a physical way from the first moment. But he is not ready to admit his first interest toward another male and drags Eli in a buddy friends relationship. Eli agrees to it to be near a man he is interested in, but at the same time he tries to understand if they can have something more.

The day-to-day routine they started is broken by a sudden event life and both Cameron and Eli have to face a crossroads: Cameron needs to recognize his true nature and Eli to move on his past relationship.

The story is nice, I like both Cameron and Eli. Eli at first seems stronger than Cameron, but then we have the chance to see that he is a man in need of a stronger figure beside him, maybe he is too sentimentalist, and, yes, also not so independent as he shows. Cameron, older and with a good work and a steady life, is the right man to give him all the reassurance he needs.

The story is not very long, less than 60 pages, and it's easy to read, but I feel like it was closed too soon: I would like to read a bit more of background for both Cameron than Eli, and also a bit more of their life together.

Book description
Cameron Bracy, an established Certified Public Accountant enrolls in a drawing class at a local university to relieve stress. Just out of a heterosexual relationship, and thinking he's straight, he meets a man at the class and denies the chemistry he feels for the gorgeous hunk, Eli Thompson. Over drinks and long walks to the canteen, they talk and become well acquainted. Eli, who also has just broken up with a male friend, is drawn to Cameron and attempts to show him through a series of experiments that gay sex is hot.
