I was all of 4% into this book and there were tears, big, grab the kleenex tears of heartache. This was a fabulous read. The story was well paced, the details were given out as part of the story rather than a big info dump. The relationship between the MC's was not insta-love there was a strong attraction which one would assume was there or really why bother pursuing a long distance relationship? I loved the time and effort that these two men put into building this relationship, that the author gave us a solid friendship as well as the requisite physical attraction for these two men to grow something more lasting and permanent from.
I really don't even know how to explain it, this story just really, really worked for me. I liked both of the MC's and together...together ...oh my god!!! They were so freaking hot. The sex was amazing!!!! There was a level of intimacy between Stuart and Dustin that isn't always communicated effectively in a story. But I really felt it in this one.
Maybe it was just my frame of mind, the mood I was in, the weather, the time of day. I don't know. I just know this worked and for me it worked wonderfully well and I enjoyed it immensely.
Paper Planes left me a very happy reader and ready to dive into the next book.
