Alex Jeffers and his best friend, Kurt Danvers, were always inseparable. When you found one, you would inevitably find the other. And Alex dreamed it would always be that way.
Kurt swore that when they went to different colleges, nothing would change. They’d keep in contact and would always be best friends. By the time Alex realizes it, he and Kurt have drifted apart. Years of friendship are just…gone.
Starting a new life is scary, but eventually Alex forges ahead and begins building one he’s proud of. While at a dinner meeting with a student’s father, Alex panics when he sees Kurt Danvers for the first time in five years. He flees the restaurant, but he can’t outrun his past as Kurt finds him and lets Alex know that he’s not willing to lose him again.
(Please note: This is a new version of the original story, which was a free read at GoodReads. This story has been professionally edited and expanded by 2,000 words, which includes a new ending.)
When I read the initial edition of Lost Time by Parker Williams, that was my only comment. It has been a while since I read it so I can’t tell you what has changed in the two versions, but I know about 2000 words were added. That one “word” still sums up my feelings on this story.
I have been on a bit of a second chance romance kick as of late as it is probably one of my favorite tropes. Lost Time ticks all my SCR boxes. Sweet and heartbreaking. I ache for the time lost but celebrate their reunion and future together. I end the story wanting only the best for Alex and Kurt.
Lost Time is a short novella, and as such, does have a bit of a rushed timeline. That is to be expected in this type of story. I loved how Kurt went after what he wanted. I loved how he would humiliate himself if that is what it took to get Alex back in his life. I loved that he never gave up, even when Alex was being a bit obstinant.
Lost Time is going on my comfort read shelf because two times is not enough for these boys.
I would like to thank the author for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
