To Live Again (The Distance Between Us #6) by L.A. Witt



Reviewed by Tabatha


To Live Again was one of those books that hit the middle of the road for me. On the one hand, I  loved that this book featured more mature characters with some life experience under their belts, and that their struggles seemed more "real world" based. We are lead to believe, at first, that Greg's divorce was just about two people falling out of love, but there is more to it on both sides of the fence.  Greg's divorce prompts him to explore his bisexuality when he's only ever been with his wife leading into this. On his first night out, he meets Sailo in the most adorkable of ways. The lust between them is instant and obvious, but the slow build of friendship between them is kind of endearing. Sailo is patient with Greg, and I loved how he was more than accommodating as a teacher. Neither guy wants a relationship out of this, but it's quite obvious as the story progresses that they both have feelings for one another. Greg's struggle to move on from his marriage is emotional and just so very real. Being married that long isn't something one just gets over, so I appreciated that element of the story.

But on the other, I regrettably didn't enjoy the conflict at the end of the story at all.  My biggest issue lies with Sailo. He was not only unreasonable, but his actions seemed out of character and out of left-field. It soured everything that had been built between him and Greg and I found the recovery of their relationship to be far too quick. I'm not even going to get into how I feel about the wrong person doing all the groveling at the end.  Suffice to say, it just didn't work for me at the end. Everything leading up to that point was enjoyable though.

*I received a review copy from the author/publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.*
