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
This book was fabulous, a brilliant addition to the ‘Home’ series, though part of a series can be read as a standalone. BUT that said I do recommend reading the whole series, not because you need to in order to understand the other books in the series. No I recommend reading it because they are all perfection. I don’t think Cardeno C knows how to write a bad book.
Pick up Walk With Me by Cardeno C and be prepared to be amazed at the depth of emotion contained in this story. If you love MM stories, Cardeno C should be on the top of your must buy list.
Truly, this is one of the nicest books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I simply loved the characters – I am a sucker for decent people – the story, the humour, the build to what was to come, what the reader is hoping for, a realisation of what they had both built, where they had come to. And also, I have to be honest, the lovemaking, for that's what it was. I simply adored the layout of the book with the wedding invitations at the start of chapters. The weddings that Seth Cohen officiates are just so inventive and dare I say it, some are probably close to being true. This is the end of a series and no author could hope to finish up with two more wonderful characters and on such a beautiful note. Highly recommended reading.
So, this audiobook had me enthralled from the first word until the very last one. I was just taken in by this story and I really had a hard time putting it down in order to work. Sigh. I listened to this book while getting my nails done, grocery shopping, commuting to work as well as being at work. I listened any moment that I could.
