Bird Meets Cage by Anyta Sunday

This was SO SO beautiful and yet heart breaking at the same time. I LOVED it though I felt a sort of agony the whole time waiting, wanting "Stardust" and "Floss" to find their to their HEA. They deserved it so much, they deserved each other! ~sigh~ 

This short novella is told solely from Nathan's POV. Nearing his 18th birthday when the circus is in town he works at the cotton candy stand. There he meets "Blue" a performer who takes his breath away, seeing him before he even knew his show name in his heart he calls him "Stardust". 

Nathan and "Stardust" spend time together in the two weeks the circus is in town. It's easy for Nathan to crush on the beautiful and talented "Stardust" who in return only offers friendship to his younger friend whom he calls "Floss". But Nathan wants more and more is something "Stardust" feels unable to give. 

When the circus finally leaves town he finds himself all alone. Well, ALMOST, he finds a new friend in someone they left behind - Danny. With an easy smile he wins his friendship and soon they become friends. They both share the same ache, wanting someone they can't have and as the years go by and Nathan and Danny build a life for themselves, preforming together even if both are a little broken hearted. 

It's been 12 years since Jean, Nathan's "Stardust", left with the circus and now that he is back he has a decision to make, will he - the bird - succumb to Nathan - the cage? The same reason Jean left Nathan behind might be the exact reason he changes his mind. 

I don't know what you had in mind to read, but if you're between books NOW is the time to grab this one and read it. It's a bit sad, but once it's all said and done, you'll find your smile. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

This novella can be bought on it's own or through the "Briefs Collection" (Amazon) which contains more WONDERFUL short novellas by Anyta. I made a compilation post of all of them together (though since I reviewed each on it's own you can also look them up 👉 right here).
