Still You Want Me

   (9 reviews)

Colin begins a new job and befriends Charles, a socialite who represents everything Colin despises. Despite fundamental life differences, they begin to build a deep friendship. Unbeknownst to Colin, Charles is falling in love with him, only to watch Colin fall in love with—and begin to build a life with another man. Colin must reconcile the deeply rooted expectations he’s created for himself against the reality; that desires of the heart never play by the rules.

Colin walks into the lobby of Clarke Co. on his first day of work after graduating from Columbia University.  He greets the sweet, motherly receptionist who welcomes him as if he was an old friend.  He sees an awesomely built, handsome blond who is glad handing everyone. This hunk turns and targets Colin.  Colin has him peg right away as charming, privileged, arrogant playboy with rich parents.  Just the type of man Colin does not like.  Charlie sees Colin as prey for Charlie's bedroom and immediately takes Colin on a tour to introduce the new guy to the rest of the staff, especially in the Marketing department where they both work.  

Colin and Charlie have a lot in common and develop into best friends in spite of the different POVs on what is a good life.  Charlie is there for Colin as Colin mets and falls in love with an awesome man who is perfect for Colin.  Perfect is does not exist in real life, and @Mrsgnomie writes real life characters, flaws and all.  

Her story takes you through many twists, and twirls your emotions around her fingers. There is hate, love, happiness, heartbreak as she treats you with some great humorous bits between very hot scenes.  My favorites are the Karaoke Conversations that include declarations for both love and lovers' quarrels in public in songs.  There are a ton of great laughs in this story.  One great read!

I read this story when she first posted it and I've come back to it many times since. Having read her later works, I can see clearly that this is her first story, and yet it is quite masterful for a debut story.

We follow Colin, who starts work at his dad's company. Charles quickly befriends him. Apparently for one reason, if you know what I mean. Despite how opposite they are, they develop quite the friendship, which of course develops into more, but not without each man growing during the process. 

The story is full of fun, whit, emotions, tears, and ultimately joy. There's no downside to this story. Read it.

Saw her on another site and came here. While it’s clear this is her first story, it’s still amazing how well written it is. I’m impressed.

Colin goes to work for his dad but is trying to find his own identity. He doesn’t want to life under his shadow.

He meets Charlie and they develop a friendship that eventually becomes more but not without hardship.

In the beginning I was a big fan of Colin and I didn’t really like Charlie, as the story progressed, it swapped. In the end, I loved them both. It is a testimony to MrsGnomies ability to arch her characters

A really great read. A sort of gay Pride and Prejudice on speed.  I love this author ✍️

This was my first introduction to @Mrsgnomie's storytelling.  It's still my absolute favorite, but every story she publishes since definitely makes it a contest to see if it'll topple this one.  These characters and their lack of communication (and stupidity) have you cheering each one on at different times.  Definitely worth your time to read!
