Corey Cassidy has always loved his childhood friend, Gage Wellton. The two shared some important moments before Gage moved away and they still live on fondly in their memories. Corey is tired of living on memories and wants to begin a life with Gage. Gage is now a cowboy and doesn’t feel he can have a gay relationship. A fantastic weekend and one unexpected visit later has Gage questioning that decision.

R. W. Clinger’s The Weekender is about the discovery to reawakening of love. Corey and Gage’s experience make for interesting reading. Gabe has apprehensions about love and relationships. Corey has waited too long to claim the man he loves and refuses to settle for less than he deserves. While some parts of the story did grab my attention, I didn’t feel an emotional connection to the two characters the way I had hoped. I did appreciate the varying settings. The mixture added interest and kept the story flowing. Overall, I found The Weekender to be an enjoyable read.
