Blurb: Who takes their claustrophobic boyfriend spelunking for his birthday?
Henry can’t say no to Jaime. So, despite his misgivings, he lets Jaime lead him into the bowels of the earth for a surprise. In the intimate dark, he discovers that his love for Jaime is stronger than his fear of imminent death at the hands of Mother Nature.
And Jaime has an ulterior motive that will make all the hyperventilating worth it.
Review: Kate Lowell’s Lead Me to You is easily one of the most romantic little stories I’ve read in quite some time. On a scale of one to ::sigh::, I must say it left me on the breathless side of happy that I spent some time with Henry and Jaime.
We get a not so subtle hint from the outset of Lead Me to You that this is an opposites attract story between our nerdy bookworm Henry and his rugged, outdoorsy lover, Jaime, but we also are given to understand their relationship works because they have enough important similarities that it makes their differences more endearing than troublesome. We also see put into play one of the universal commonalities of a loving and committed relationship—one partner pulling out all the stops to make the other happy. The best part of this story, however, is that it’s neither Henry nor Jaime sacrificing alone, but both giving of themselves equally, and this story ends in such a sweet and heartwarming way.
Kate Lowell has penned, unashamedly I might add, a full-stop tug at the heartstrings romance, with plenty of sizzle to add some heat to the sweet. I liked this small gem quite a lot and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to any of you short story lovers out there, for an instant gratification reason to smile.
