Ruben finds himself fascinated with a man and nothing stands in his way. Henry was his high school history teacher and the guy that he spent an intense weekend with. Ruben flees, afraid of this thing between them. Meanwhile, Henry writes about the history of objects adding in hints of Ruben and his life. Can Ruben fix this distance he created between them?
Yeah, there’s a big age gap. That didn’t bother me one bit, but I’m just warning you. I think the author handled that really well. I also thought the cover was classy, the blue scarf caught my eye right away. There are interesting plots points and a beautiful love story. The alternating point of views frequently creates a jumpy book but I think Everyday History is certainly worth the read. Henry and Ruben do a dance, unsure but eager with each other that was a pleasure to read.
If you’re looking for a m/m romance that’s heavy on feelings, then Everyday History is the book for you!
