'Something Like Summer' not only has lots of passion, humor, angst, and twists and turns, it also takes an in depth look at how the choices we make in life affect not only ourselves, but everyone around us.Five stars from ALPHA reader: "Jay Bell has written one of the most heart-felt and sincere M/M romances I have ever encountered. This is a love story that spans twelve years - a story all about getting a second chance with 'the one that got away'."

Beautifully crafted with a storyline both engaging and heart felt without seeming so impossible that it could not be a series of events in a real individuals life. Seeing love, especially that between two men, so artfully written while addressing some of the struggles of being a gay man in modern day society while finding love and ones self is important to address and I wish there were more books like this.
