My friend Sjd Peterson asked me if I was going to do the Goodreads ‘Love Has No Boundaries’ event this year. I said I didn’t think I would, but she encouraged me to look at the pictures anyway. I did and found one that caught my eye. This is the story request that came with it:
I was hoping you could tell me the story of these two beautiful men?
They have known each other for many years. They were close friends for a long time, but life just got in the way and their competitive careers and busy lives meant they somehow fell out of touch. They never forgot about each other, and they have both been waiting for this moment for years.
I’d like to see an emotional reunion, maybe a hint of hurt/comfort in there somewhere if you can fit it in, but most of all just a whole lot of love (I’m a hopeless romantic!).
Please, no paranormal elements (I’d like a contemporary romance) and preferably no BDSM either, and I would really appreciate a wonderful HEA. If nothing else, please just give me a happy ending I know I’m requesting an emotional story, but I’d like it not to be too angsty, if possible.
From this came Lost Time, the story of Kurt and Alex, friends from birth who separated when it came time for college with promises of staying in touch. Life got in the way, however, and they drifted apart. Years later they came together once again and secrets that they each had was forced into the light.
