Massachusetts, 1959:

Some people might accuse mathematician Everett Sloane of being stuffy, but really he just prefers things a certain way: predictable, quiet, and far away from Tommy Cabot??his former best friend, chaos incarnate, and the man who broke his heart.

The youngest son of a prominent political family, Tommy threw away his future by coming out to his powerful brothers. When he runs into Everett, who fifteen years ago walked away from Tommy without an explanation or a backward glance, his old friend's chilliness is just another reminder of what a thoroughgoing mess Tommy has made of his life.

When Everett realizes that his polite formality is hurting Tommy, he needs to decide whether he can unbend enough to let Tommy get close but without letting himself get hurt the way he was all those years ago.… (mere)

This is short and has just the right amount of trouble and angst, and I am so glad Cat Sebastian wanted to work in a different part of history. We all win! ( )

I enjoyed this, but the condensed novella format here didn’t show enough of the feels. I would have been fine with either more of the past or present, but there was a bit lacking in both. I wanted to learn more about both Tommy and Everett, although I’m glad they found their second chance and hopeful HEA. ( )

I have a nostalgic love for the Greenfield area of Western Mass, so that definitely added to my enjoyment of this book -- not that it needed anything. The characters are great. Their second chance feeling out of old miscommunications felt authentic to me. I loved the gentle teasing (You're the good teacher, aren't you?) and the surprising allyship found in Tommy's marriage. Just the thing for a winter's evening. ( )

Tommy and Everett were best friends—and more—at a New England boarding school in the 1940s. Tommy got married and broke Everett's heart. Now, 15 years later and both knowing themselves better, they find a way back to one another. A sweet, second-chance-romance novella. It could perhaps have used a tad more by way of fleshing out the characters and their motivations (Tommy in particular), but it absolutely hit the spot in terms of a little let-me-adore-you yearning. ( )

This is a quick post-WWII MM romance between two long-lost friends. It's a bit dramatic because men don't talk about their feelings, especially in 1940s USA, so most of the "lost" part is down to simply not communicating.
Everette, instead of telling his best friend at boarding school (who he's already in a sexual relationship with) how he feels, enlists in the army during WWII and then, having survived that, goes off to college in the UK when that friend gets married, cutting off all contact.
Tommy is a golden all-star Rich Kid who has it all until he doesn't then, 15 years after marrying Patricia and losing his best friend without so much as a goodbye, has a chance encounter with said old buddy Everette when he drops his own kid off to attend his old boarding school - where Everette is now a teacher. Turns out, in the interim, Tommy had a sort of life crisis where he told his whole Old Money family he was gay, who promptly disinherits him, and also to his wife, who asks for a divorce besides being Old Money herself and both Catholic (which is a Big Deal).
The wife Patricia/Pat sticks around and has now also developed her own queer relationship with a genderqueer/FTM person named Harry, even though the divorce isn't final. This last bit was out of left field and you have to remember this is still 1950s USA so I thought it didn't really fit in with the story or was even a necessary detail but never mind.

Even though the plot points are kind of eyeroll-inducing, it's still a short and sweet story with a HEA. I'd love to read more MM romances in this era. ( )

Surely by now, after a full month at Greenfield, Everett ought to have gotten over the dizzying sense of unreality he experienced whenever he remembered that he wasn’t one of the uniform-clad students.
