A story about love and forgiveness.
Gregory has finally decided to try to move on from his past. He's putting these memories, in the form of clothes and games, on Craigslist, hoping to sell them. Chad, the potential buyer, is a party planner and is excited to take the 1980's memorabilia off Greg's hands. As a simple transaction turns into a romance, Greg will have to decide if he's really ready and willing to move on from his past or else risk losing Chad.
A good part of the plot revolves around finding out exactly what happened to Greg in his past to cause him to be so afraid of falling in love. Greg is a huge trivia junkie and loves to share fun little tidbits of information. There's a nice sense of humor to this story especially around the timing of this sharing. Chad is a sweetheart who everybody seems to adore. We get a pretty good idea of their relationship based on the things they do together, and some nice glimpses into their daily lives.
The sex scenes are raunchy and slightly kinky with some mild spankings thrown in for good measure. I liked their conversations and the creative way the author pulled the 1980's theme into the story at various points. I also loved watching Chad help Greg recover from his past.
This amusing and heartfelt story, with love leading the way to forgiving one's self, was a very enjoyable read.
