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 can’t tell you how much I loved this sweet love story between these characters. Even though it’s sort of a love at first sight book, their relationship is given a lot of time to grow before they act on it. There are many funny parts, one semi-angsty part, and a very happy ending. I definitely recommend this book and the rest of the series.
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.
I read and giggled and laughed out loud and sighed and awww'd and sniffled and smiled. ...Theirs was a journey of hope, faith and love. The writing draws you in from the start and never lets you go. It's engaging, honest and humorous, yet emotional when befitting the situation, and holy hot boysecks, Batman. The whole relationship with its slow burn is permeated by respect and friendship for each other, and a deep, abiding connection. Seth might have taken his time, but when he figures it out, it's full steam ahead. And Eli, persistent, a little hesitant but oh so sure of what he wants - simply a joy to behold... Humor abounds during the weddings Seth officiates, and there are plenty of sweet moments between him and Eli too. ... Highly recommended. Utterly beautiful.
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.
