My Review:
I like the way Dreamspinner Press has done these little novellas for Garrett Leigh's series. For this particular one, it's a scene that isn't in the book, but it's one that adds to the story, although it's not necessary...so they offer it FREE. This is not something you want to read if you haven't read Only Love because it contains tons of spoilers for that book. The best thing about these little novellas is that you can prolong the stories. I know that I am always sad when I reach the end of one of Garrett Leigh's books. This is like a special little dessert to prolong the feast. (and I have no idea where the food analogies just came from...sorry...LOL)

I liked this one because it gave a better feel for what Jed is going to do with his life now. Throughout the novel, he was lacking a little bit of focus in that area...instead focusing on just getting better. This also gave a bit more insight into the guys relationship. I really do love them together and love their story. It's short and sweet but definitely adds to the story. If you read the novel, you will definitely want to go pick up this novella from the DSP store. (Same goes for the Roads novels companion novellas.)
