Annah Crow has moved onto my auto buy list. This is a beautiful and for me, realistic story of two long time friends coming together as a couple. Both guys have baggage and the other is there for him as they deal with it. I also liked the fact that both guys had baggage. So often, it's just one of the MCs. I enjoyed both characters. I enjoyed the d/s that became part of the relationship and made sense that Holly would crave. There isn't a lot of sex until the last third if the book because this story is about the guys getting to a good place to be together. Great read that I will be re-reading.
