She still can't quite believe that she is lucky enough to live, work, and go to school on beautiful Vancouver Island.

A brave and funny love story about the anxieties, insecurities, and heartaches that drive people apart and bring them back together, It's Like This is the journey of Niles and Rylan, as they learn to communicate in the shadow of a life-changing illness.

Niles and Rylan have been together a long time. They have great sex, they are deeply intimate, and Rylan never holds back on displaying his affection. As far as their family and friends are concerned, they're an established couple, and yet, after three years of being "together", Niles is still unsure if they're actually in a relationship.

As their sexual intensity reaches a dangerous tipping point, Niles must find the courage to articulate how he feels in order to try and keep the only thing he has ever wanted. Emotional and compelling, It's Like This is a must-read for true romantics.

Author's Note:
Please be aware that the following is not about a safe, sane, sober and fully consensual BDSM relationship (although it is not non-consensual). It is instead about two people who want what they want but don't know how to express exactly what that is and the emotional repercussions of their miscommunications.

Please do not use the characters' actions as an outline for healthy BDSM play, as communication is of utmost importance during and around scenes and that is not what goes on here. If you have triggers concerning dubious consent or breath play, I would recommend giving this story a miss. Thank you so much for reading.
