What would you give up for love!

Raziel Slade and Jack Hastings have been best friends since Raz saved Jack's life twelve years ago. Jack has spent many years searching for the perfect woman with the help of his wingman, Raz, the man he thinks of as his guardian angel. At a company Christmas party, the world Jack thought he knew turns on its axis, and feelings he didn't know he had punch him right between the eyes. Can Jack learn to see his friend in an entirely different way?
Openly gay, Raz loves his best friend and has given up more than Jack will ever know to be with him, but he's never dared to tell Jack how he truly feels, or to reveal his true identity. For twelve years he has waited in the wings.
Now with Jack's sudden epiphany, can these two best friends work out if they have a future together?

Friends to lovers...with bells on!

Twelve years is a long time to be in love with your best friend, especially while believing that your feelings are unrequited. Jack and Raz have been such close friends for so long, the chemistry between is well established, and once Jack accepts that the way way he sees Raz has changed, their intimate relationship develops quickly. Personally, I would have loved to see more of Jack's feelings and emotions in this story, as he came to terms with this huge change in his life, he was after all, the straight man falling in love with his gay friend.

The love between Raz and Jack is incredibly strong and the shift from friends to lovers seems to come very naturally to them. The love scenes here are endearingly awkward at the beginning, but both tender and sexy as these men explore and learn each other. Jack's family are delightfully supportive and unsurprised by the developement of their relationship and Jack and Raz's happy ending points to a beautiful future for them. 

A lovely read, a real feel good story.
