A long-awaited reunion.
Cory’s had a rough year struggling with severe depression. He’s desperate to rebuild his shattered life and to break away from his demanding family. When his therapist encourages him to do something for himself, he knows exactly what he needs. I want to see Asher again. The best friend he ever had who, at fifteen, held Cory’s heart in his hands without knowing it.
Asher’s had a troubled relationship with his father since he came out. Now that Pops is sick, he’s fighting for his right to help or even find out about his father’s health. Then there’s the complication of an ex-boyfriend unwilling to let go.
When they meet after sixteen years, Cory’s feelings are as strong as ever. But does Asher feel the same?
Cinnamon Eyes is an emotional story of what happens when two people who never wanted to be separated, finally reunite.
Cinnamon Eyes is a true gem and a future regular reread in my book. I picked it up because of the title (obvious reason), fell more for it after reading the blurb and completely head over heels while reading it. Nell Iris is a new author for me but I’ll make sure to read everything by her. The writing is flawless with a great flow and the story just blew my mind. I adore the best friends to lovers scenario so I was in absolute heaven here.
This is a relatively short novel but has all the elements of a memorable read. We get to witness a unique reunion of two friends who haven’t seen each other for sixteen years. We get the info bit by bit and can put the picture together. I loved the pace, the amazing feels, the hot and loving chemistry as well as the palpable emotions.
This is a true feel good story, so if you are looking for angst and excitement this is not your story. On the other hand if you are looking for a fairytale love story with true love spiced up with some family drama and heartfelt reconciliation, this story is definitely perfect for you. Highly recommended
