Posing for a talented young photographer seemed like an easy way for Aaron to make some money, but it ends up changing his life forever. Jake is a recluse while Aaron is flamboyant, and yet they fit together like two peas in a pod. What started as a working relationship quickly becomes more, but if Aaron and Jake can’t admit their true feelings for each other, they’ll lose the best thing that ever happened to them.

The beautiful and intrinsic connection between Jake and Aaron in Take My Picture is evident from the moment they meet. It continually grows and changes, evolving quickly into an unbreakable bond that even separation cannot destroy. Aaron meets Jake when he’s looking to make some extra money and Jake decides on the spot that he wants Aaron as his new assistant. He says, “That one. I want that one.” From there, Aaron and Jake embark on a relationship that is so much more than friendship. Their love for each other is simple and pure. It’s consuming and passionate. As guileless and obvious as it is to everyone around them, they don’t see it themselves. Aaron is outgoing, confident, and charming. Jake’s eccentricity creates debilitating anguish for him at times. He is flighty, inquisitive, sensitive, and innocent all wrapped up in a sexy package. He’s insecure and unable to express his feelings. The results of which broke my heart and theirs, but their reconciliation is profoundly moving. The first time I read Take My Picture I thought it was one of the most moving stories I had ever read and I fell madly and hopelessly in love with Aaron and Jake. I still feel that way. Take My Picture is a wonderful story with some very hot and tender sex at the end. From Jake and Aaron’s constant witty banter, to their heart-wrenching journey, and the references to The Giving Tree, Take My Picture is achingly poignant and heartbreakingly perfect.
