This book was a nice surprise for a m/m historical. Story of rich, handsome, jaded on love earl named Peter who meets a young, idealistic architectural student who begins to crack his jaded heart. After introducing Stephen to sex, Peter takes off scared about what he is feeling. Stephen gets his heart broken by his first love and goes back to his university. However, neither stops thinking of the other and some chance encounters pull them back together. We see Peter decide to take a chance on love and the result and learns that Stephen is his soul mate. I enjoyed the growth we saw in both characters in this book. Really nice read.
