Blanchard learned early in life he could only rely on
himself. Orphaned and raised in foster homes heís always
been a loner, and being over seven feet tall added to his
insecurities. Although he never had difficulty finding sex
only partners, Dave longed for a real relationship with
someone he can love and will return that love. Dave tried
online dating with not much success. When he least expected
Dave found something else his life was missing, a friend.
Black shared a foster home with Dave when they were
younger. Dave always liked Micah as more than a friend
growing up, but Dave vowed to keep those feelings in check
as he and Micah rebuild their friendship. When faced with
almost losing Micah, Dave can no longer hide his feelings.
Once his true feelings are revealed will Dave lose his new
best friend, or will their relationship become everything
Dave have been wishing it to be?
Precious Ache is a sweet story. Dave is a gentle
giant. I felt his loneliness and his need to have someone
to just share company with. Micah was indeed a great fit
for him; he easily welcomed Dave into his world and
introduced him to his friends. Micah brought Dave out of
his self-inflicted isolation. I liked how they built a
friendship and a great foundation for a relationship. As
much as I liked the story, I still felt it could have been a
lot better. The writing style seemed a lot different from
what Iím used to from Amanda Young. It didnít flow as
smoothly as other stories Iíve read from her have. But all
in all Precious Ache is a happy story with
wonderful characters and I liked it a lot.
