Xander remembered this dreadful moment as a huge betrayal and Bennet as a shameful weakness from his part.Until, 15 years befor, they meet up again.

Othe year in the wilderness with no other choice but to interact, not nymore as children, but as adults sharing bittersweet childhood memories, a huge ense of deeply buried loss and explosive attraction that has somethin to do with friendship.These few days spent in the woods hav a revelation for the caring and funny Benny and the exy and brooding Xander and the hotness emanating from them had somethin to do with the climate.

Bennett and Xander were friends as kids but had a rather unfriendly parting as teenagers.

So they seemed more like enemies then friends when they meet back up.

Bennett from NY taking a group of kids on a hiking expedition in the valley of Colorado led by none other than Xander?

Of course, Lennox had to ntroduce the creepy old lady in the form of Xander 's aunt, who lived in a nudist colony, but she as n't as goo as the old ladies from the Made Marion series.

But then Benny takes a turn when he freaks out about Xander 's friendship with Jake ( read Wendy 's rant about this here).

hat does n't mean that the feelings of love were n't there though ... so for me ... it 's practicall a " second chance " love story;) Bennett and Xander have been best friends since they were 5 years old.

So he started interfearing, which unfortunately led to a 14 year old Bennett breaking a 14 year old Xander 's heart .... Fast forward 15 years and they are about to come face to face again, when Bennett takes a group of troubled teens on a hiking adventure and their guide turns out to be non other than Xander.At first Bennett is very happy to finally see his old best friend again .... That is until he decide, that his old friend is n't the same little insecure boy anymore .... he is bitter and angry and all of that anger is focused on Bennett.Throw in Bennett 's best friend, shitstirrer and former lover Aiden and the disaster is complete .... I have to remember that I eally hated Aiden in the en for being such a little hit.

After a while though, I did discover that Aiden only wanted what was best for Bennett and he ha he one who finally pushed these two together to work out their differences ... And boy did they ....

If you do n't like spoilers .... skip this part, because it 's little one ... When they g back from their hiking adventure, Bennett suddenly gets a case of insecurity about Xander 's friend Jake ...

Which is why Aiden is now one of my favourit haracters of his ook: POkay rant over .... sorry about that: PAnyways ... I actuall eally oved th nove and I kno most wo n't be bothered by this little scene .... but sometimes the smallest of things can piss me off: PThis was a surprisingl sweet, hot, romantic second chance story.
