Rather than the usual 'Murder in chapter one followed by much hand wringing and discussion of who could and who could not have done it - only to find the culprit was a little suspected character', this turned out to be more a ghost story much like the ones we used to listed to around the campfire at summer camp.

I think its safe to say, that I have never -ever- cried this much over a book before.. Luckily they say its healthy to cry, so I'm not that worried.. But wow.. What an amazing book this is.. Its so full of emotions, and.. The love the uncles show to their two so very different nephews is amazing, and the love they have for each other is amazing, and the love the two nephews find in each other is amazing, and, yeah well, its just a freakin amazing book! Love, love, loved it!

View all 6 comments. A great romantic story. The characters are lovely, the situations rather sad but at the same time so heart warming. I would love to of read Byron and Alfreds story in more detail, they seemed so perfect. In fact I kinda liked them more than Alex and Paul. I did spend a lot of the time reading this wiping away my tears, but they were not all sad tears. Recomend to all looking for a deeper more meaningful story.
View all 3 comments. I have no words for this story. There is nothing I can say that explains how much this book touched me. It is not often that something causes a deep emotional response in me and when it does happen I never want the feeling to go away. This made me look into my own life and see my own relationships with family and friends and wonder am I doing everything I can to give myself a good life. This book ripped my soul out so I could examine it and try and fix the flaws in my own life. It gave me shiver I have no words for this story.
It gave me shivers, it made me cry and laugh. I got angry and brought a smile to my face. I give this book a 10 and make it my favorite book I have read to date. Oh, this one is just so sweet! I had tears in my eyes a few times, imaging Byron's suffering and Alfreds sorrow. But this is more Alex and Paul's story, and it was a good story!

Of course there were misunderstandings, preconceived notions that were false of course and there really wasn't any question of how it would end, but I very much enjoyed watching them get there.

I don't know what I was expecting going into this book, but what I got wasn't it.
I was reminded of the first time I saw Disney's "Up" with how quickly Alfred and Byron's story got to me. I loved the introduction to these two men and Bryon's fate had the whole silent tear thing going from the start. Then in came Alex and I wanted to smack him. Oh not for not being there during Bryon's illness, I understood that, it was his brazen stupidity when it came to Paul egged on or not that made me want I don't know what I was expecting going into this book, but what I got wasn't it. Oh not for not being there during Bryon's illness, I understood that, it was his brazen stupidity when it came to Paul egged on or not that made me want to just shake some sense into the man.
All that inner paranoia is just not good for you health! Of course Paul is a sweetie and the machinations of our resident ghost were adorable if maybe a little misguided.

Watching these two stumble around was fun and I like the road their on in getting to know each other. Paul and Alex have great potential together and I appreciated that things didn't get wrapped up in to much of a pat bow by the end of this story. I liked that I felt like this was just the beginning for these two. They've gone through some terrible times and finding each other is a wonderful feeling, but it's not always going to be smooth sailing I'm sure. Jan 24, Macky rated it it was amazing.
This is a lovely mm romance that does just what it says on the tin.
The product description gives us exactly what the story is about and once you start reading its obvious how the story is going to end ,but for me it didn't matter that it held no surprises, as how you get to the HEA is a delight. The way Eden Winters handles Byron's passing is just right, not too sad or maudlin but poignant tender and very touching.

I loved every character in the story, Byron and Alfred would have loved to hav This is a lovely mm romance that does just what it says on the tin. I loved every character in the story, Byron and Alfred would have loved to have learned more of their story , Alex , a love em and leave em playboy who appears to be cold,thoughtless and fueled by money and material things and Paul , kind, thoughtful and caring , money and material things meaning nothing to him.
All the supporting characters were also well fleshed out and important to the story. The slight paranormal side is not too over the top or in your face so didn't seem far fetched at all. A definite keeper, will read again and again. Author Eden Winters has combined two compelling love stories into a single novel. First, you learn about Alfred and Byron who have spent more than twenty wonderful years together and Byron has just passed away from cancer.
Byron's nephew Paul and Alfred's nephew Alex are about to meet for the first time for Byron's funeral. Their uncles were convinced that these two young men are perfect for each other, and Alfred promised Byron he would do everything he could to bring them together. Byron is not Author Eden Winters has combined two compelling love stories into a single novel.
Byron is not completely out of the picture, however, as his spirit lingers to watch over Alfred and to help him complete the task of seeing their nephews happily together. That is not easily done, though, as Paul is still mourning a broken relationship and Alex is bitter about finding only lovers who are interested in him for his money.
This was such an emotional and beautifully written story. Plan to have tissues handy while you read it. I really loved this book and hope you will too. Oct 30, agirlwithoutwings rated it liked it Shelves: enemies-to-lovers , m-m.
whitelabel.tradetoolsfx.com/includes/gicic-meilleur-prix.php I liked the first part of the book a lot! Alex was really bastard enough of a character I wanted to read about. I was also excited about the setting up which was aimed to make them lovers. But gradually I found that there were so many death wishes, wills, illnesses and even ghost appearances in the background. It got tedious!
I thought the nephews had already met beforehand, but they were nearly strangers to each other. This book made me cry. I wish there had been a little more scorchin' hot sex to offset that. In the end I knew them well enough to want them to find their HEA just like their uncles. Shelves: m-m. This book pulled me in with the first chapter and kept me captivated.
The story is filled with sorrow, hijinks, growth, and love. Great read. Alex is Alfred's nephew, and Paul is Byron's. When Byron dies after a heartbreaking battle with cancer, the young men, Alex and Paul, are brought together for the first time. Instantly they hate each other for they appear to be polar opposites. Alex is materialistic and carefree when it comes to sex.
