A toast to epiphanies...no matter how late in life they come.

A story about unexpected love for both Evan and Matt. Neither suspected their interest in the other until it was there in their faces. Maybe I've become less doubting of the GFY premise, but I found this story with two older protagonists touching--emotionally. *rolls eyes* The trepidation and uncertainty they both approach their feelings and desires feels very realistic. The rate at which they progress, again, very realistic. 

What I didn't enjoy were the gut reactions that blew things out of proportion, but after lingering like a festering wound were suddenly cleared up a bit too quickly. In general, all external conflicts were resolved ridiculously fast and the internal ones dragged.

Overall, I enjoyed the story, but doubt I'd read again. Nice way to pass a couple hours.
