Now I am a big fan of Zoey Derrick and the 69 Bottles series. Ive loved it since I read the first one. This story will just break your heart when you read it while at the same time inspire you to go after what you want in life and love.
Calvin aka Mouse and Eric aka Peacock are two very opposite characters that have been best friends for years. That is until Eric comes out of the closet and Calvin's feelings for him start to come out and start unraveling into something you can never even fathom about him.
Eric has spent a decade in love with Calvin always thinking he wasn't into guys like he is, boy oh boy is he wrong.
Calvin's story amazes me and makes me cry at the same time.
Eric is one of those ppl that just wants to take all the pain of what hes gone through away and fix it and he struggles so much with what he puts Calvin through. I just love Eric so much a sweetie.
This is a must read if you are a fan of Zoey Derricks books or if you love any of the 69 bottles books. Its different because it is guy on guy and that's not what alot of ppl want to read. But its sexy as hell as so worth the read for sure.
