The Long Slide Home ( The Rainbow League 3) by: Kate McMurray
reviewed by: Jessica
Nate and Carlos have been the best of friends since their childhood playing baseball together in the Bronx. For the past few years, Nate’s been in love with Carlos, though he’s never acted on it and Carlos has never given any indication that he returns Nate’s feelings. Nate has finally given up, determined to move on and find someone else, especially now that Carlos has shacked up with his boyfriend, Aiden.
Carlos doesn’t understand why Nate has suddenly gotten weird, acting cold and distant at team practice for the Rainbow League. But if that’s how things are going to be, Carlos is done trying to figure Nate out. But then Aiden reveals he has a violent side, and Carlos needs his best friend’s support. On top of that, he starts to realize his feelings for Nate might not be limited to friendship. But in the aftermath of his relationship with Aiden, and with Nate having problems of his own, the timing is all wrong to make a real relationship work. As emotions run high, both have a hard time figuring out what is real and what is just convenient.
I really, really enjoyed Carlos and Nate's story. The friends to lovers stories always tug at my heartstrings, and this was no exception.
Carlos and Nate have been friends their entire lives. Growing up in each others pockets, playing little league together, high school, college and their rainbow league team as adults. They've shared everything together except what Nate wants to share most, until their summer is turned upside down by shattered relationships and grief.
When Carlos and Aiden split up Nate is who Carlos runs to. When Nate needs a shoulder to cry on and a pillar of strength Carlos is there. Seeing their relationship evolve from friends to lovers was a beautiful experience. I love that the sex scenes weren't your typical wam bam thank you mams, this was sweeter, softer and more intimate. Absolutely adored this book and I can't wait for more from Kate.
