This is the third book in Jason Fronde’s “Boyfriends Past” series. In it, we return to follow the love story of Matt and Kyle, two young men who have loved each other since they were teenagers. However, their relationship has been fraught with challenges – not the least of which being that Kyle is closeted and fearful of how his conservative family will react if they found out about him being gay. When Matt moves away for college, the two are forced to go long-distance for the first time ever. This proves to be too much for their already struggling relationship, and they break up soon after reuniting following graduation. Now working together in a new city, Matt and Kyle must come to terms with all that has happened between them before they can finally find happiness in each others arms once again.
