(PDF/EBOOK) [Snapshots and Bylines Friends to Lovers #3] Ô Stephani Hecht
Without a word It wasn t on him to xplain or ask forgiveness I wouldn t have minded the nding being drawn out as most of the story was them at age 18 rather than at age 30something but the romance of friends to lovers as kids was sweet and
#intense as young #as young often is and Sammy s lderly neighbor was a hoot Cute mm romance about two guys who have one awkward night together right after high school then don t have any contact with ach other for ten years I night together right after high school then don t have any contact with ach other for ten years I liked this one but I concur on most of the other reviwes the past part was way too long and the contemporary part felt cramped and not satisfying The Pocket Wife enoughWaiting for the next part of the series uite disappointed in this novel I m a fan of Ms Hecht s work so for me to read such a failure put me in a really bad mood I thought it would be about the struggling romance between two people who need to be together but refuse to THeir resolution at thend happened far too uickly and their realtionship from when they were like 18 just dragged on Really annoyed wit THIS IS THE 3RD BOOK IN STEPHANI S FRIENDS TO LOVERS SERIESSuper cute short and sweet friends to lovers romance I loved it This story basically covers TWO DAYS of Marc and Sammy s life One day in the past which is than half of the story and one day in the present where Marc and Sammy meet again I DO like the past portion of this series It s just The Color of Our Sky entertaining to see how Marc and Sammy s trying to deal with obstacles likevil dog and allergy to strawberries to finally seal the deal I have a soft heart for young best friend who fall in love with one anotherIt s the present portion that I don t like 1 Solving the 10 years apart issue and the anger that Sammy has for Marc in ONE DAY not ven one day just one scene inside a wardrobe closet is just waaaay too asy and too rushed Plus the reasons are pretty lame in my opinion 2 This sort of RUIN the timeline that I can remember I mean in Blast from the Past where Marc and Sammy appear for the first time they don t seem to have any problem in the present So when does this story happe. Lergic reaction to strawberries and both had a bad case of poison ivy But just as they get together Marc and Sammy were torn apart when life and family obligations interferedIt's been ten years and Sammy never got over losing Marc Even though he has a successful career as a social worker at the local GLBT youth center Sammy has always felt as if a piece of himself. ,
I njoyed the set up and idea but this was Not My Favorite Thing From Her I Felt That This my favorite thing from her I felt that this was a bit too short to really get into the characters specially since we had a section when they were kids and then a section when they were adults I wish time had been taken to reunite them I guess But I still love this author and will always read Cabaret: A Roman Riddle everything she writes Hm To my surprise the bulk of this story was set ten years previously and described their virginal first time together Then the briefest present time wrap up about why Marc left back then and did not try to see Sammy again Sadly that part fell shortThe teenage story actually felt sweet and kind of funny and provides thentire reason for the three star rating I just did not get sufficient resolution and happiness in the nd and given how much they profess to have loved ach other for leven years they really have not done anything about it since that one time I reuire some grounding for thatStill the teenage bit as much as I usually avoid that sort of thing amused and ven touched meStupid that the nding does not deliver This book is kind of divided into two parts The first 23 of the book is Sammy and Marc as high school graduates who have been best friends since Sammy moved to town Although they knew ach other was gay they finally get together and
it s amazing being ach others first However Marc s Mom is a loser and abusive and when she reveals somes amazing being ach others first However Marc s Mom is a loser and abusive and when she reveals some he is sure will cause Sam to hate him at the same time she s up and moving them to another town he leaves without telling Sammy why and it breaks Sammy s heart he thinks he s been used Years later Marc is a film maker who wasn t to do a film using Sammy s GLBT centre and despite his feelings Sammy agrees and their friends decide it s time for the two to talk whether they like it or not To be honest I thought Sammy gave in too uickly LOL Yeah I m mean that way Apparently Marc had been talking to their friends for years but refused to contact Sammy and veryone was but you didn t contact him Umm yeah he didn t walk out. Best friends in high school Marc and Sammy ach harbored a secret attraction for the other but neither dared act on their feelings for fear of ruining their friendship Finally one night during the summer after their senior year they gave in to their desires and had a passionate ncounter Wellas passionate as possible when one of them had a dog bite the other an al.
review Snapshots and Bylines Friends to Lovers #3N If this story happens before that book why don t Marc and Sammy are said to be a couple But if book why don t Marc and Sammy are said to be a couple But if s after there is no saying that Marc and Sammy have been apart for 10 years or that they have animosity between them Of course this is based solely on my memory which might be wrong but I don t think I am Thus the 3 stars rating 25 stars maybe way too short 65% of the book is there one time together before being separated for 10 years then verything is resolved within 10 minutes of them being reunited the book just felt unsatisfying and rushed Overall nothing very really happens and the book is so rushed ven with their being separated by a really lame reason for 10 years you haven t developed any feelings towards these characters so there is no angst or anything This story had so much potential yet what did we get instead 6281 pages of Sammy and Marc when they were 18 followed by a 10 years later and a rushed and immature resolution with both of the MC shoved in a closet Stephani Hecht can do better and this basically read like a plot outline not a fully fleshed out book So much time was dedicated to meddling old neighbours rashes and talk when the boys were teenagers that there was no room left for the fact that they were separated for so long had so much between them they needed to settle and were going to need a really long talk to make up for it I didn t find the reason for the separation believable it was actually very weak and a ten year period of feelings of abandonment hurt and incomprehension were magically solved in under 3 minutes which was underwhelming We get nothing about what their lives
#have been like #been like their separation the blurb actually tells us than they do The whole book was basically the one scene of when they were 18 and their unsatisfying reunion When I read in Stephani s blog that we would be getting 2 books a month I was xcited But if this is what we re going to get uantity over uality I d rather wait for a decent book that took time to write This one at least would have benefited from it I was not impressed. Is missing Then one day Marc shows up at the center wanting to film a documentary Sammy is shocked and hurt that Marc stayed away so long only to turn up when he needs somethingWhat Sammy doesn't know is Marc had a good reason for staying away One that could not only destroy their lives but the love they once had for ach other and any chance of a future together. .
