Book Review

As stories about first times go, this is definitely a sweet one. Told in a wistfully romantic tone, it gives us just enough details about Jimmy and Scotch to understand who they are. How they met, what they want in life, and what’s important to them, other than each other. Without getting sappy, they are still clearly well on the way to falling in love.

Scotch is a little hesitant about taking the next step, but Jimmy is patient and experienced enough to encourage him to try. That, more than anything, convinces Scott that he is in safe hands. He is not a man of big dreams, but when they make love, he is pleasantly surprised how good it feels. They even get to cuddle afterward – despite the fact that they're in a cold car and snow is falling outside. It just goes to show that inner warmth can be more important than the environment sometimes.

If you're looking for a short read, if you enjoy stories about first time, and if a little romance (not too much) is your thing, you may like this short story about a new beginning.
