New Eyes by TK Paige

Sometimes, all it takes to find what you need is to look closely at what has been there all along.

Roommates Jed and Doyle have been best friends since meeting in college. They have supported each other through all their ups and downs. Now that they've graduated and are starting new jobs, they have no intentions of letting that change anything. Doyle is everything Jed isn't—smart, cute and active at the LGTB center. Jed has always looked out for his friend and been there for him. They have plans and an amazing friendship, everything planned out to the smallest degree.

Any changes could make it all go off the rails. So why can't Jed get over how annoying he finds Doyle's ex turned friend, who seems to be around way too often? Why can't he stop noticing Doyle in new ways?

If Jed doesn't take a risk, he could miss what's been there all along.

New Eyes is a length between Novella and Short Story (expanded and edited from its earlier edition), featuring a best-friends-to-lovers premise, with no lusty scenes shown on the pages. Doyle is in love with his best friend, but Jed is too blind to see it, which lends a healthy dose of angsty deliciousness.

As a lover of a well-written novella, I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into this story. While there was plenty of chemistry between Doyle and Jed, the tension I need within a book, due to the page-length, it barely gets started before the book is over.

In all honesty, I had a difficult time reading this novella, connecting with the characters, and digesting the story due to the writing style and length. While the premise was a good one, the execution didn't satisfy me.

I felt as if this book was a slow beginning to a full-length novel, which quickly tied up the story just as it began. I was left feeling dissatisfied, needing more.

I look forward to trying another book by the author, but sadly this one didn't work for me.

T.K. Paige picked up her first book to read around the age of four and hasn’t stopped since. She discovered the M/M genre in August of 2012 and an addict was hooked.

If you see her and she is not reading, then she is thinking about the books that live in her head. It doesn’t matter what else she is doing, it is guaranteed half her brain has a plot running through it.

A stay at home mom for more years than she would like to think about, she is lucky enough to be married to a wonderful guy who encouraged her to write throughout their years together. Then when she finally did it and she told him what she was writing, he turned only slightly green and asked “Do I have to read it?” Apparently, he had dreams of her being the next Urban Fantasy sensation with her taste in movies… We won’t tell him what she watches when she is alone all day folding laundry.
