He Didn't Have To Be

He Didn't Have To Be - Tracey Michael This was a nice, low on angst, friends-to-lovers story, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was fast-paced, and the set-up was great, but the story felt a little rushed, and it was over way too fast.

Griffin and Toby have been friends for years until a kiss meant to make a point to bullies turns their friendship around. From that moment on, they see each other in a different light and decide to explore that, finding that they are a good fit, despite Griffin being supposedly straight. The development of their relationship felt natural and there was no unnecessary drama going on.

All in all, it was a sweet story and I even liked Wendy.

His best friend dressed in a suit happened at funerals and weddings, and once a year, the basketball banquet. Toby's mouth went dry. He blinked and shook his head. "Who are you and what have you done with my best friend?" Toby teased.
"I saw that," Wendy whispered, close to his ear.
