“You Are My Sea” is a perfect short read for those who crave erotic romance with more meaning.
The narrator and main character is Arnold; a handsome Icelander in his early thirties. He conquered the demons of ADHD, ditched the addictions he had and now lives in a healthy way. He develops an unexplainable and impractical crush on his coworker Peter: a beautiful young man with Antarctic blue eyes. Peter is introverted, smart, sarcastic and professional. However, when personal problems exceed his ability to cope, he runs away from the workplace, to start a pilgrimage to the sea. He believes that seeing the sea will be able to free him from his pain, but it turns out that the journey is more important than the destination. The two walk through rich and atmospheric landscape, testing their physical strength and sharing secrets that make them most vulnerable.
Their romance is slow-burn, but, as Arnold says, “the longer the wait, the sweeter the kiss”. The elegantly written and emotion focused erotic scene will surely melt your heart.
