...upon completing this write.
thank you - scotchbound (sandd_bound here on lit.)
You are one of my favourite writers. I really enjoyed this story. The slow unconscious seduction is so much more satisfying that the jump into bed quick variety; I like the mix of emotion with sex. And the love scene is nicely erotic and satisfying. I've enjoyed all your stories and hope you keep writing. Thank you for posting this.
Thank you for writing a story with real characters in an actual love story. What a pleasant change from the tabnslot that passes for 'erotica' and is actually just (boring) porn. I will make sure to tell my friends about your work. Thank you for sharing with us.
This is quite a beautiful story, thank you for the tenderness you portray in your work.
mike came to visit me i did not know he was gay but after reading this we had the best sex ever
This is a really beutiful Christmas story,me and my boyfriend love it, keep it up...I think your doing great.
This was Beautiful, a True Story, True Litriture.
It is hard to find work so Amazingly well built, With well developed characters too!
This was a Treat to read, Thankyou and do more please!
i have never left a comment before but this story was so incredibly beautiful! i can't wait to read your other ones. it was also very arousing. i was as wildly inlove with Jesse and Kevin as they were with each other. well done!
With sandd_bound, I also shattered into a million pieces. This story is hands down my FAVORITE on this whole site. I love it. It was so good I cried. I have read and re-read a more than a few times. Keep up the great work!!!
Awww... I loved it...
I absolutely loved this! I got totally involved in the characters & the story. When they finally got together I heaved a sigh of relief. So when's the next story gonna be posted?!? I'm a big fan of your writing so please post another!!
When I came across this story I was just looking for a quick "stroke story", but I started reading it and I'm SO glad I did - it's beautiful. Wonderful characters and story and so erotic! As a bisexual woman, I found it highly arousing. Just lovely.
I wsan't sure what to expect, I almost didn't read this. So glad I did. It's elegance and charm, style and grace, heat and pleasure made me fall in love. Thank you!
...was unbelievable. Thank you for taking me on such a journey.
What an incredibly beautiful love story. I loved every word of it. --Phil
That was probably the sweetest story I have ever read. I loved it so much. I can't wait for other stories :)
Man, I started reading this and for couple of pages was like, ok, when will the action start. Boy oh boy, this is freaking awesome and I am not even GAY.
Great build up (could have been a bit short) but amazing finish. Will look forward to more submissions (:P) from you.
This has got to be the absolutely best story on here, by far ! ! ! ! ! Loved every word. thankyou for sharing your talent.
An absolutely brilliant story. Very touching. Thank you xxx
Very touching, and I'd like to see a version where the bottom and top are switched, or a story from the other's point of view. I loved it, it was touching AND sexy, which can be a bit hard to come by.
Sex is Sex!!!!!!!! Love is SEXY... Passion and Love made this by far a winner. Brilliant dialog. Stay sweet and true.
I love all your stories but this one is my favorite. I would love to see this story told from Jesse's point of view, just like you did in "I Hate You".
Every time I read this story, it blows me away. I love the depth that you give to your characters.
That was such a great and sweet story! I loved it!
you are without a doubt on of my favorite authors, if only for the fact that you take such care of your stories and it clearly shows. i look forward to many more stories (though i think i have one more two-parter to go)
For a the duration of my reading of this story you made me fall in love with love again. Your writing renewed my hope that there is such a thing as everlasting and "I'll hold your hand till the end" love. Please continue.
I really liked this story, the fact that you had the confidence to allow us to get to know the characters and utterly feel for them before you got to the sex. It worked in the sense that by the time you got to the sex it meant something.
It was so good, that I didn't even mind the first person narrative.
This was a quite servicable story--sweet and nice. My only objection was that the "surprise" was such a non-surprise I felt like I waited months for the main character to find out what I knew from page 2.
Regarding a previous, less than favourable comment..... Sometimes the journey is far more important than the destination when you know already know where you're going. Brilliant story, which I thoroughly enjoyed and I'll now be reading through the rest of your works. Syntax could have been a little tighter in one or two spots but I tend to be picky so it's really much more my problem than the writer's.
amazing. all of your writing is. my only regret is reading them all too fast! please write more!
a greate story... hope to read jesse´s side
Just loved this - the writing, the characters, and Kevin's voice was so believable and more than once I wanted to swat him one for not noticing Jesse's hints :) Beautifully written - thank you!
What a wonderful story, so descriptive, so well written, it was just beautiful - wish it could have gone for ever and ever, I did not want the story to end and now that it has I feel sad - sad because it was something lovely to look forward to when it came to the end of the day and time to relax - all I can say is a big thank you to the Author and hope you will write more and more. Well done !! Every time I see a Starbucks I will think of you both xx
Ok, I'll admit it. I'm a hopeless romantic. This was a fantastic weaving of wordcraft. You fleshed them so well. Like I said, the good of it is that I have found a delightful writer.
Beautiful love story. I usually prefer my read to have a bit more drama and angst, but this one was so good written that I can't complain.
This is such an honest, warm and romantic story about two men finding each other--about two people finding each other--that it's easily one of my favorites. The flirtation is hot and believable and the sex scene provided a perfect finish. I love the way you weave in themes, not just that of the holiday but about renewal and family. Thank you!
This was a really heartwarming and beautiful story. A good balance.
Thank you for such a warm, touching story. Please continue to write and I will continue to read!
This is what I hope for, not only for me but all relationships no matter with what sexual partner one desires. Thank you for a beautiful story.
The story is very pretty and wonderfull. love this story. I hope you continue writting this kind of stories.
I was fascinating with it.
This was a wonderful story. So happy to read about a couple that truly Loves one another as those two do. i hope they are happy for the rest of their lives
I am so touched by this story. It shows how wonderful love can be when developed slowly, holding back on sex until it can truly express the connections between lovers. Culminating in such erotic fulfillment of desires. The words "decent and wholesum" came to my mind, in counterpoint to so many homophobes proclaimed hatred of "sodomy."
I love all of your stories but like to read this one over and over again, especially around the holidays! Would love to see more of your great writing.
Your stories are so romantic and lovely, but this is definitely my favourite!!! More stories soon please!!!!!
I mean your stories are all great, have some understanding, romantic,funny, and HOTT!
I love them all!
Read this before and loved it, re-read it just now and cried. Thank you
This is one of the best and most romantic stories on this site! Actually, I love all your writing! Hope you have more stories in the works! Waiting and looking forward to reading more!
i am straight girl, but i found gays so free and sexy and emotional. and i loved your story. i really did, its unbelievable how u find the exact right words to create an atmosphere like that.
p.s. is it a real story of ur life?
Discovered this through a gay fiction rec site and I'm so glad I did! Loved the development of Kevin and Jesse's relationship. Such gorgeous emotion and imagery.
I'll definitely be reading the rest of your stories.
