Waiting for the Moon and You by LJ LaBarthe

Dreamspinner Presents
All his life, Leith has loved Aaron, and all his life, Leith has wondered if Aaron returns his feelings. Through high school, college, and beyond, Leith and Aaron are drawn together and pulled apart. Leith is finally convinced he and Aaron are not meant to be when a cowardly act of violence against Leith changes everything.

Aaron returns to Leith’s side, but Leith struggles to accept that Aaron can love him now.

If Leith doesn’t overcome his doubts and fears, he will forever be waiting for the moon and Aaron… and true love.


Told with a lot of flashbacks – this is the story of Leith and his friends and (very briefly) his romance with Aaron.

I honestly can’t really rate this as a romance because 80% of this was NOT a romance – but Leith’s story.

If you are interested in a story about coming to grips with who you are and friendships and life… this is a book for you. But if you are interested in a romance about two men finding love with one another – you might be unhappy with this selection.

I was not a fan of the flashback writing style used here and so the overall experience was not great for me.
