Guest Review: Class Distinctions by Rick R. Reed

2nd Edition
Kyle and Jonathan were perfect for each other, the two halves that, once together, made a whole. And then one snowy night just before Parents’ Weekend on the campus of Hamilton University, Kyle drops a bomb: he’s breaking up with Jonathan.

Follow the couple through the stormy (in more ways than one) night that ensues. Why has Kyle suddenly decided to throw away something so precious and good?

The answers lie in their backgrounds, and will gradually come to light as a winter blizzard rages around the young couple.

Their tortured paths bring them to the covered bridge where their love had sprung to life on a hot summer day. But will the warmth of that memory and the heat of the love they once shared be enough to outclass the storm, and more importantly, bring them back together?

Reviewer: Shee Reader

Our story opens in the happy world of Jonathan getting all prepared for a romantic and sexy weekend with his boyfriend as their college dorms empty out for the three day holiday weekend. All Jonathan really needs is his lover to arrive.

Enter Kyle who promptly beaks up with Jonathan with a few words and walks away. Just that short conversation and Jonathan’s heart is broken.

What follows is a short story of a relationship that hadn’t been in place long, but was a deeply loving one. What had driven these two you young lovers apart?

Jonathan spends some time dwelling on the heartbreak, and then his mom calls. Jonathan’s mom is a wonderful character, the kind of parent we should all strive to be. We also get a look into Kyle’s relationship with his mom. She’s a hardworking mom doing her best for her son.

I won’t spoil the ending by revealing what happens, but safe to say, my need for a happy ever after is satisfied!

This is a short novella full of emotion and wisdom. It was nicely written and enjoyable, the only improvement I’d make would be to make it longer - luckily for me, Rick has some full length novels out there I’ll be sure to dive in to.
