Close To You
Sunshine & Happiness 3

It’s hard to recover from a first love. Some people never do.
How hard would you fight to keep your best friend? Marc Lucas and Tomas Santos have been best friends forever, but now their friendship is in a crisis. When they were boys, betrayals ripped their world apart. They thought it was fixed, but some parts remained broken. Ever since he saved him from a humiliation at school, Marc has loved Tomas. The last thing he expects is for Tomas to love him back. To keep his best friend, Marc revisits an abusive past he’s tried to forget.
For Tomas, loving Marc has been anything but easy. His upbringing told him it was wrong, so why did it feel so right? Accepting who he is as an adult, Tomas decides he needs a committed relationship. To his deep sorrow, he can’t seem to find it with Marc.
When the two find themselves alone and in the grip of a hurricane, long-buried feelings emerge. Being “just friends” is no longer an option. They must risk it all on love.
Tomas and Marc have been best friends since they were kids and went through a lot of emotions together while trying to know each other and maintain their friendship.
Tomas comes from a traditional family … he knows how to be loved and regardless he sometimes feels out of place, he has that security of a home.
Marc comes from a difficult house situation, one parent; his dad, and really doesn’t feel loved or secure under the conditions he lives.
When a school project pairs them together, the friendship develops and time becomes their alley, refuge but then became their enemy.
Tomas and Marc needed to become whole separately to then be able to talk, listen and be there for each other as adults.
The time in the past became a memory and the time in the present became a catalyst for their future as more than friends. Love then became their all.
I like the way the story was done, because author Skylar Cates (one of my favorite authors, by the way) took me on a journey of really understanding their past and the way the future shaped for Tomas and Marc.
