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
I will shamelessly admit that I've held off reading 'Walk with Me' as long as possible because it's the final book in the 'Home' series by Cardeno C., and I wasn't ready to say good-bye. From the moment I opened the very first book, I've been hopelessly in love with all of the characters and Emile City. These books have touched me in so many ways and the thought of not having new stories makes me sad. I do know that this is a series I will re-read over and over again because it really is just that good. ... A heartwarming and beautiful finale to an incredible series. I can easily and wholeheartedly recommend each book and the entire series.
It's an uplifting story and I highly recommend you make time to read it.
Throughout the book, Cardeno C. gives us lively and hilarious anecdotes of all the Jewish weddings Seth officiates, and these help to move the story along and keep us entertained. Oh, what we will do for love. I would recommend this book; it was a great ending to Cardeno C.'s first series. In the dedication, Cardeno C. says that she hopes it made us smile. It did.
I have really enjoyed this entire series and this book was a perfect addition. Eli and Seth will quickly grab your hearts as they take you on their journey that spans over a decade....It was the perfect completion of their friendship and the start of their love affair. It was also the perfect way to end our stay in Emile City.
