I saw him first.
But it didn’t matter.
Because he saw her.

He was my best friend, and I was his.
We couldn't be together, but we couldn't stand to be apart.

And if you're not truly lovers... but you're so much more than friends... what exactly are you?

I have now read this one twice.

Once in 2021 (very late to the party, I know) when I read the original version and thought I was going to have a heart attack while reading that epilogue (which went nicely with the few I had while I was reading the story) and again when the re-release came out with the epilogue by Jamie.

That epilogue was the perfection of the ending that I didn't know I was missing.

Let me explain. Breck and Jamie were perfection. They were angst and the missed chances and connections, the ways things fell apart for them, worked. In a gut and heart wrenching sort of way. And, until you get to the literal last few lines of the book, you really don't know what is going to happen. The resolution in the original works. It leaves you, and them, in a good place. But, it also leaves you wanting more.

The additional epilogue from Jamie is more than just telling what happened tells you a little more about how they got there. And, it tells you from his side of the story. And, it's perfect.

If it's been a while since you read this one, I do recommend a reread before you dive into the extras, as they mean so much more if you remember the events he is speaking of clearly.

I recommend the original version. I definitely recommend the 5th Anniversary edition.
