When Eli Block steps into his parents’ living room and sees his childhood crush sitting on the couch, he starts a shameless campaign to seduce the young rabbi. Unfortunately, Seth Cohen barely remembers Eli and he resolutely shuts down all his advances. As a tenuous and then binding friendship forms between the two men, Eli must find a way to move past his unrequited love while still keeping his best friend in his life. Not an easy feat when the same person occupies both roles.
Professional, proper Seth is shocked by Eli’s brashness, overt sexuality, and easy defiance of societal norms. But he’s also drawn to the happy, funny, light-filled man. As their friendship deepens over the years, Seth watches Eli mature into a man he admires and respects. When Seth finds himself longing for what Eli had so easily offered, he has to decide whether he’s willing to veer from his safe life-plan to build a future with Eli.

My Walk With Me Review . . .
I absolutely adored this story!!!!!
It was sweet and left me with such a great feeling after listening to it. Seth Cohen has just started at his new job being a junior rabbi but what he didn't expect is to fall in love with a man. Sure Seth has always been a bit confused with his feelings and how to identify with them but meeting Eli Block changes his world.
Eli is much younger than Seth, as well as loud, funny and open. As Eli is the son of his boss and the source of his confusion he chooses to be friends with Eli. At first Eli is crushed since re-meeting Seth. From a young age at youth camp he fell for a much older Seth. Now being reunited has given Eli hope. Unfortunately for Eli, Seth doesn't feel the same way. Eli wants Seth in his life so he will settle for anything, even if it is only friends.
As the years progress Seth and Eli become great friends. For Eli, its unrequited but he won't let Seth go. For Seth, the stronger their friendship the more he feels for young Eli. Finally having the balls to admit to his feelings to Eli, he's met with Eli finally moving on. Since both of them don't want to lose each other they maintain their friendship for a very long time.
When the truth finally comes out the sweet factor grows between these two. As well as the steam factor. Once Eli's dreams come true, Seth shows his true colors, especially in the bedroom.
Eli was my everything and my heart hurt looking at him.
I don't know why I loved this story so much. I don't know it is was the narrator whom was awesome by the way or the actual story itself, most likely both. I'm such a big fan of friends to lovers and this story so embodied it. Favorite Character? Avi, Eli's dad. He was perfection and the narrator did such a great job capturing this character. This story touched on so many different subjects through the evolution of Seth and Eli, that you get to go through all the emotions with them. Gah! This is a story that had me smiling throughout making me want to listen to it again and again.
4.5 Adorable Thumbs up!
