Brian and Tristan have hardly seen each other for the last month, managing maybe once a week due to conflicting work schedules and Tristan’s work as a cop. Finally they are getting away for a pre-Valentine’s weekend at a B&B. Just as they arrive, Brian asks to top and Tristan kind of freaks out. He only did it once with his asshole ex and it was very painful. He shares that with Brian, who with some probing, discover that the ex probably meant it to be that way as he was angry with Tristan at the time.Tristan is willing to just “take it” but Brian refuses and distracts him with some other outdoor activities. While I still find these guys likable and I want them to be happy, I found this extremely frustrating. There was no real progress made on the would he or wouldn’t he bottom and enjoy it question, and even though it passed through Tristan’s mind that maybe he should invite Brian to live with him so at least they’d see each other more, none of that was resolved except more proof that Brian is a great guy who loves Tristan and would never push him. I just felt that there wasn’t much progression of them as a couple beyond Tristan sharing his one time with his ex and some other family stories, and thus found the story less than rewarding. I think if Brian had been able to show Tristan that being on the bottom can be pleasant with someone who cares about you, or they had even discussed moving in together I would have felt there was some movement forward. I’m not sure how many inches this is going to, but I hope that the next inch is a rather large one because this felt more like a centimetre despite the strong writing and appealing characters.
