"Hot-Hands" and Casper have been dating for a month, but their relationship is about as smooth as shattered glass. It doesn't help that Hot-Hands is racked with guilt over his high school bullying of Casper, or that Casper darts away whenever his boyfriend gets a little too frisky.

Desperate to hang onto Casper, Hot-Hands tries to earn back the trust he destroyed years ago, so they can face their disastrous past and have a chance at a happy future.

Cold Hands focuses on high school bullying for being gay. This is the sequel to Hot Hands and contains big spoilers if read first.

For this entire series I've wanted more, more, more time with each couple. Well, now I have it!

COLD HANDS is a follow up the first in the series. This followed Casper and Jamie after their shaky HFN at the end of Hot Hands.

Jamie and Casper had known each other since middle school. Only problem was they hadn't been friends the entire time. More like enemies, as Casper was horribly bullied by Jamie throughout middle and most of high school. So when Casper discovered that Jamie has had a crush on him the entire time, it came as quite a shock.

Casper still wasn't quite able to forget all the torment Jamie put him through during their school years. He's with Jamie, but didn't quite believe it and was kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Which was great, as I don't think anyone would realistically forgive and forget that kind of torment so easily. I really enjoyed Casper's character and the strong man he'd become. He took the terrible way he was bullied and used it to make himself a better person.

Jamie, poor Jamie. I don't think anyone was more upset about his actions than he was. As much as Casper wasn't ready to forgive, neither was Jaime. He knew what he had done and was therefore very patient and understanding. He was willing to wait for Casper to be ready to move further in the relationship, or not. He was also okay with things staying the way they were, as long as he was able to be with Casper. It was all very sweet and touching and I loved every minute of it.

This was a great little glimpse into the lives of past characters and I was so excited when they were able to get a solid happily ever after. But I'm now feeling greedy and still want more with all the couples.
