Barefoot, in a pair of pajama bottoms and my “Boy plus Boy” shirt, he couldn’t have pledged his allegiance any better if he’d been rolled in a rainbow flag.
Title: When Adam Kissed Me
Author: Chris Scully
Why you should read this book: It’s the sequel and if you want to know more about our boys’ love story you need to read this.
Summary from Goodreads:
Nine and a half weeks ago, Joe Massone got the surprise of his life when his straight best friend and secret crush, Adam, kissed him. At the time, Adam was recovering from an accident that left him with temporary amnesia and broken ribs, so Joe isn’t sure if he should take it seriously. Is Adam really gay? Or was the blow to his head to blame? Having secretly loved Adam since they were teenagers, Joe doesn’t want to get his hopes up and have his heart broken.
Despite that first kiss, Joe and Adam are still in limbo—now more than friends, but not quite lovers. Adam’s injuries have meant they can’t take their relationship to the next level, and for Joe, not much has changed from when they were just best friends and roommates. He starts to think neither of them is ready to take that final step.
Patience stretched to the limit, Adam makes plans to break the stalemate. But when Joe sabotages things by inviting their friends along, Adam is left to wonder if their new relationship is over before it’s even started. Before he gives up, though, he’s determined to prove to Joe he wants more than just a kiss.

Sequel to Inseparable. Better than the first because the two of them are together but still with so many misunderstandings and unsaid things. I really liked the flashback chapters. If only they were more open they wouldn’t have wasted so many years without actually being together. Well, they already acted like a married couple so the only things missing were kisses and sex but still, about damned time!! Talk to each other, say things out loud, it is hard but it has to be done!
I love how in love with Adam our crybaby Joe is. He cries all the time: when he sees Adam with his big italian family, he cries, when Adam kisses him, he cries, when Adam storms off because Joe’s being an ass, he cries. He cries so much and I love how Adam makes fun of him for it. Joe has held his feelings inside of him for so long and now that everything is out he can’t contain himself with happiness! It’s overwhelming! Joe is such a cute guy! He cares so much about Adam and about his family. He knows he will be the happiest man on Earth now that he is with Adam, the one and only guy he has ever loved and will ever love. So sweet!
Joe is already thinking about the future because they are both 30 years old and he knows they have wasted so many years with misunderstandings and stuff, so he is already imaging the both of them married with kids. His mind is rushing things a little bit and he knows it but can’t do anything about it. They will take things one step at a time and enjoy their newfound love and desire before stepping into something more serious.
I loved these two short books. I am always amazed how I can be drowned in feelings in only a few pages.
Do I recommend it? Yes, DO IT.
