Calvin Lynch and Troy Hoffman have been best mates since they were fourteen years old. They’re both hard-working tradesmen, both love weekends away fishing, both gay, but have never been single at the same time. Until now.
What is supposed to be a weekend away fishing with a group of mates, changes at the last minute when friends bail out in an attempt to give Cal and Troy some alone time.
With more than just hooks on the line, can these two see what’s been right in front of them the whole time?
The Perfect Catch is a short story about falling for your best friend hook, line, and sinker.
A 20K short story which was part of the It Was Always You anthology.

5 + Stars
And they saved the best for last. I absolutely loved Cal and Troy. I loved that the friendship was so genuine and the back and forth banter was funny and how best friends should be. This is probably one of the best friends to lovers I've ever read. The chemistry was undeniable and the sexual tension explosive. The sex was sweet, hot and filled with love.
If I had to pick just one story from this anthology to read, it would definitely be this one!! Highly recommended!!

Cal has been in love with his best friend, Troy, since they both were 14-year-olds. However, this is the first time they've both been single and their friends bail on their fishing trip to give them a chance to finally get together. Finding the courage to speak up and ask for what he wants might be a problem, especially with all he could lose if Troy rejects him.
I adored Troy and Cal, they were awesome and I just loved how perfect they were for each other. I loved that while they gave in to their feelings, they still had to talk things out to see if they wanted the same thing out of their new relationship.
I'm in awe at N.R. Walker's writing skills, be it a short story like Perfect Catch or a longer one like the Red Dirt Heart series, she is capable of making me care for her characters and root for them in a way that few authors manage.
Highly recommendable! Just pick it up, you won't regret it!
