My childhood BFFs-to-lovers story turn 1 year old today. Happy birthday, Always You! The little story that became so popular it was featured in the 2020 Top Ten Gay Romance anthology published by JMS Books. A story about Thom, who’s been in love with his BFF for as long as he can remember, and Lee, Mr. Oblivious, who wouldn’t recognize love if it hit him in the face.
If you love short, friends-to-lovers stories, this is definitely for you.
Best Friends. Roommates. And now, maybe…more?
Thom Novak feels like a walking cliché: the gay guy desperately in love with his straight best friend, Lee. But he’s willing to keep his feelings hidden, to do whatever it takes, as long as they stay friends forever.
Lee Conway loves sharing an apartment with Thom, his best friend since birth, and would be happy doing it for the rest of his life…no matter his current girlfriend’s opinion on the matter. But he’s never been known for being in contact with his emotions.
When something happens to upset the status quo, Lee pulls away. Has Lee learned how Thom feels about him? Will it mean the end of their friendship? Or is there another reason Lee needs time to think? A more…hopeful reason?
