Aidan and Ethan by Cameron Dane

Aidan and Ethan were high school best friends. Both misfits among the other students, Aidan with a troubled past of juvenile criminality and Ethan always being the odd boy, they found in each other the perfect companion. And if there was more between them, they didn't talk, till the graduation day, when they shared a kiss and promises of a future together. But the morning after Aidan was gone without any explanation, and Ethan had to spend the following 13 years wondering what he had done to push away his best friend and wanna-to-be lover.

Now Aidan is come back in town, and he makes clear that he wants Ethan back, as friend and lover. He is aware that he has some explanation to do, and he is willing to go to Ethan's pace. But even if he has good reasons for what he did, Ethan is still too hurt for Aidan's betrayal, and above all for not knowing nothing about him in 13 years; and then Aidan never asked about him, how he was doing and if he needed a friend, and Ethan did and a lot.

The story is tender and the sex is hot. I really don't understand the big problem of Aidan, the reason why he left; all right, family is important, but we are not talking of a death or live event, and Aidan consciously made Ethan have the worst period of his life without giving him any hope for the future. So, no, I don't like very much Aidan's past actions, but at least he is repentant, he knows that he is on the wrong side and he tries to make amend. On the other hand, I like all of Ethan; he is sincere and a good boy till his core; I like above all that he doesn't let go as soon as Aidan knocks at his door, but he makes the man suffer... 13 years of silence deserves a bit of suffering!

As I said the sex is very hot; only four long sex scenes (plus an assolo...) in 160 pages, but they are all quite intense, above all the second one, where the sex almost edges in pain, when Ethan needs to let go all his pain to a stronger emotion.
