Returning home was very bittersweet for Jason Sweet. Forced
to leave his childhood home because of his homophobic and
abusive father, Jason returned 15 years later to look after
his now widowed and sickly mother. When he left all those
years ago Jason didnít just leave his broken home, he also
left his best friend and first love.
Danny Yarrow never expected to see Jason again. Neither did
he expect if Jason ever returned home that he would
want to rekindle their long ago relationship. Danny was more
then willing to oblige, but Jason wasnít the same boy he was
when he left. Now a retired police officer injured in the
line of duty, Jason carries a lot of emotional baggage. A
physical relationship may be all that Jason can offer
Danny. Will it be enough?
Sweet Reunion was pretty good, but I wished
there was more development to the charactersí relationship.
They picked up where they left off years ago, except I
didnít get a sense of a real romantic connection between
them. They were both great guys and I especially felt for
Jason, as his life was far from easy. Even once he returned
home things were not good for him. Physically and
emotionally he was a mess and he was trying to rebuild a
relationship with his ill mother. Danny was a good
distraction for Jason and he did care for Jason, but as I
said early there wasnít a strong romantic connection there.
Even without that connection I still found Sweet
Reunion to be a good story.
