Serious, responsible Seth longs for sexy, outspoken Eli but must decide if he's willing to veer from his safe life-plan.
When Eli Block steps into his parents’ living room and sees his childhood crush sitting on the couch, he starts a shameless campaign to seduce the young rabbi. Unfortunately, Seth Cohen barely remembers Eli and he resolutely shuts down all his advances. As a tenuous and then binding friendship forms between the two men, Eli must find a way to move past his unrequited love while still keeping his best friend in his life. Not an easy feat when the same person occupies both roles.
Professional, proper Seth is shocked by Eli’s brashness, overt sexuality, and easy defiance of societal norms. But he’s also drawn to the happy, funny, light-filled man. As their friendship deepens over the years, Seth watches Eli mature into a man he admires and respects. When Seth finds himself longing for what Eli had so easily offered, he has to decide whether he’s willing to veer from his safe life-plan to build a future with Eli.
Twenty-seven. That’s how old I was when we met. Well, it was how old I was when meeting meant something. No. It was how old I was when meeting meant something to me. Never mind. That’ll all become clear.
The point is that at that time in my life, I thought I was straight. Typically, when you say you thought you were straight until [insert-anything], the first question is, “How old were you when [insert-anything] happened?” with a chaser of “How could you not know you were gay before that?” It’s a fair question, because I think most gay people do know before they hit their late twenties. But for me, Eli Block was the first guy to ever hold my attention. Not the first to grab it, mind you, just the first to capture it and hold on. That said, women hadn’t ever held my attention for…
The story spans from 2001 to January, 2014
It's an uplifting story and I highly recommend you make time to read it.
KindleRomance's Review: A brilliant crush-to-friends-to-lovers story that brings an end to one of my favorite series. ...This is a lovely relationship story with well-developed characters who are not only funny and charming, but also sexy and loving. ...There were so many funny moments in this story with the characters and the outrageous weddings that Seth officiated. ... Although Seth is a rabbi, this is not a religious story. Although Seth has loved both men and women, this is not a story focused on bisexuality. This is simply a beautiful relationship story about two people who truly love each other to the bottom of their souls. It's so hard to see a series you love come to an end. The author writes amazing character-driven stories, keeps with this formula, and delivers another winner. I highly recommend this amazing romance with unique characters that truly come to life. Karla's Review: Cardeno C. knows how to draw on a reader's emotions and tug at their heartstrings. I'm working backwards here, because although Walk with Me is the 8th book in the Home series, it's my first. But, no matter, the series is connected in theme only, not by characters or a continuing story, and it can be read as a standalone. The title of the series, Home, seems to define the adage, "home is where the heart is" , because Walk with Me speaks the language of comfort, familiarity and love. Seth had me at "Shalom" ! What an easy going, charming, endearing…
The relationship Seth and Eli form is one of close friend and confidant. ...Walk with Me isn't all seriousness and emotion. It's actually quite funny! The dialogue between Eli and Seth is like what you find between happy, fun loving friends. ...I cannot think of a better finale for the Home series. Cameos are interspersed along the way. Eli and Seth's story spans the beginning to end of the series, capturing everything from their perspective. It's an emotional journey with Seth and Eli but also one for readers of the Home Series as we celebrate love and commitment but also say goodbye to Emile City.
I would recommend this book for MM romance fans who like the development of a relationship as well as the hot scenes. This one is funny as well as heart warming and you get appearances by several characters from the other books. A fantastic series that I really enjoyed reading and highly recommend.
