A Wonderful Thought-Provoking Story

This is a wonderful story that has breath and depth. It shows the longing of love in all its beauty. It can deeply affect a person to the core and change one’s life like nothing else can. Love can alter us and our life to the point that we will never be the same. Love is an emotion that no one should live without because it gives our lives meaning, yet it is the hardest to live with when one is overwhelmed by it.

Andrei is a straight man who moves into a new community in Blue Springs. He has experienced many ups and downs in life. But he was ready to make a new life for himself. He moved into an apartment, bought a new car, and bought new furniture. He also updated his resume so that he could find a suitable job. He seemed like a regular guy doing regular things until he met Sammy, a millennial Gay man.

Andrei’s whole world turned upside down. It seemed at first like a relationship that would never work. Andrei was decades younger than Sammy. They seemed to have little in common and didn’t have much to talk about. But when they were together, it seemed like the whole world stood still.

What shocked Andrei was that he become completely consumed by this young man. It was an obsession like no other he ever experienced. Meanwhile, Andrei must deal with a lot of confusing emotions in his life which shakes him to the core. For a while, he has no idea what is happening to him. Andrei is acting unpredictably and doing things that he never did.

This is a story like no other I ever read. It made me wonder how I’d feel if I were swept off my feet like Andrei was. Can love really conquer all in this kind of all-encompassing way?

I found myself reflecting on the nature of love and how all encompassing it really is. There is so much to reflect on and many realizations to be had as we read the book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read Sims’ next book.
