Nothing's Missing Now

Nothing's Missing Now - Westbrooke Jameson

Sweet and easy.. Ray is a great guy, Liam a wonderful partner, they're living a great happy life. The PTSD-aspect of the story isn't very heavy. You feel for Liam a lot, but it also isn't very heavy on the angst - because Ray is there, they love each other and they make it all better for each other.

Which is fine. I enjoyed it. It was a great short story, even in the technical sense of the word. Maybe that was part of the problem for me? I'd have loved to read at least a little more about their meeting, about the backround and their life in general. And I'd have liked to read a little more conflict? Or Some kind of suspense/action/problem/anything?

As it is, this read is sweet and lovely and happy and hopeful. Ah, let's face it: It's a FLUFF-FEST. And while I'm not against fluff, cheesy and happy unicorns, I would have loved a little... MORE. But maybe that's me and my current mood. If you're looking for something comforting, sugar-y and smile-inducing, you should definitely pick this up. If you're looking for antagonism, tension, angst or any kind of big conflict, move right along. This isn't for you.
