In this novella, we meet Nick and Charlie as they navigate the end of the school year. It's a significant time for them because Nick will be heading off to university in the fall, being a year ahead of Charlie. They're committed to maintaining their relationship and are optimistic about seeing each other regularly. Their friends are encouraging and trusting in their bond as Nick and Charlie.

However, Charlie is grappling with the impending distance, as they've grown accustomed to seeing each other daily. He understands Nick's enthusiasm for university life but worries about the potential for their relationship to falter. The plethora of negative experiences shared online about long-distance relationships leaves Charlie questioning their prospects. Should they consider ending things proactively to spare themselves potential pain in the future?

I really appreciate the authenticity of Nick and Charlie's characters in this story. Their struggles feel genuine and fit seamlessly into the narrative. Although I usually steer clear of the miscommunication trope. I found the way the author handled it here to be spot-on. As they navigate this uncertain period in their lives, facing the implications of the next chapter, the author's treatment of the subject is once again commendable. The language is wonderfully straightforward and lucid, making for an engaging read. The narration is superb, keeping the pace brisk and exciting. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance novels, especially those who appreciate stories centered on same-sex relationships.
