Shortly after the move, Mark's sister-in-law drags him to a Zumba class, where he first meets Seth, the sexy instructor. Mark is so attracted to the man, he can barely function. That and a series of misunderstandings keep them at a distance, until Mark finds a way to share the truth about himself with Seth. From there, we watch them slowly form a relationship.
It really is a sweet love story. Seth is amazingly patient with Mark as he tries to overcome his insecurities. Don't get me wrong --the love scenes are hot-- but Mark's personal journey and the evolution of his relationship with Seth are the real focus of the story. Even within the confines of a short story, I felt like we really got to know both men and that their courtship never felt rushed. (Plus, I always give authors extra points for realism in sexual situations.) Well done. Almost 4 stars.
