Daniel and Jacob meet on a ship, fall in love, and risk everything to be together. But there's a war, injuries, families, society, and decades between their happy ever after. I could have done with little less sex in the story, but every now and then it's nice to read a story where each short moment and a scene conveys something important about the characters and their relationship. That's what I felt I got here. It took me as long as did to read this because I was trying to savour each word.
