I’ve just met him, just got to know him, and come to care for him… and now I’m losing him. He’s moving away and there’s nothing either of us can do about since he’s not legal yet. 

Then again, maybe it’s all for the better. He gets to experience something other than my messed up psyche. Maybe it’ll be good for him, maybe he’ll meet people his own age, find a boyfriend who can give him what he deserve. I want him to be happy. 

But I want to be happy too. And can I be that without him?

Book Review

Any relationship takes work, but in Jørgen and Geir's case, of ‘Anything for Him’ by Nick Kove, it is especially true. They have managed obstacles most of us never even think about, i.e. Jørgen with his past abuse and anxiety attacks and Geir with his social awkwardness and seizures. With persistence, loyalty, and love, these two young men have carved out a life for themselves, one which works for them. What anyone else thinks doesn't matter.

Jørgen comes home after a long day at work to find Geir and his friend, Nik, making Christmas baked goods. No matter what's happened that day, just a smile from Geir makes things much better. Jørgen reflects on how far they've come and marvels at the fact that they are still together. He would do anything for Geir even if it means going way out of his comfort zone.

Geir's friend goes home and Geir gives Jørgen his undivided attention. They are going to spend Christmas with his parents; he hopes to have some together time in bed before they go. When he sees how tired his lover is, Geir tucks him in bed, putting his plans aside for a while. Geir adores Jørgen and always considers his needs. Geir knows there will still be time for what he's planning later.

This is an endearing, short vignette revisiting Geir and Jørgen's relationship six months from when the first book ended. It's good to see they are doing well, still sorting out their issues, but their unconditional love for each other is carrying them through any rough times to come. Readers who read 'More Than Anything' should love this short but satisfying visit with Jørgen and Geir. To those new to the story, it's important to read 'More Than Anything' first, in order to appreciate Jørgen and Geir's progress in their journey. Thanks, Nick Kove, for giving me an endearing update on Jørgen and Geir.
