My Places In Time Review . . .
As usual with Cardeno C. we get a sweet story about love filled with tons of heart.
In Places in time its like a modern day 'a Christmas carol' without being actually christmas.
Ethan finds himself freshly dumped again, which causes him to go to where he always goes when he needs comfort. On his way to his best friend Jude's house, he encounters a bit of an escape of reality with him being brought back in time to find out what he keeps missing but was glaringly obvious.
Even though Ethan's a bit vain and full of himself he didn't realize that he's always had love. It just wasn't the kind he thought he would have, but quickly realizes that it's the kind of love that he deeply needs.
Jude has always loved Ethan but never knew how do truly show him, when it seemed Ethan only wanted to be friends. So when he's finally given the gift of something he's always wanted, at first he's a bit skeptical but once he dives in, he goes all the way in.
This was such a cute friends to lovers / straight to gay story. It was quick, adorable, and sweet with a quick dose of steam.
