Never Too Close

Original title: Viens, on s’aime


Many people believe that men and women can’t just be friends. And they have good reason to! When Loan and Violette meet, it’s platonic love at first sight. Loan is going out with Lucie and only has eyes for her. A year later, things change. Loan is grief- stricken, Lucie has left him. As for Violette, she starts her own love story with the handsome Clément who Loan hates, to his own surprise.
So, when his best friend, who is still a virgin, begs him to be her first lover, he hesitates. He hesitates. Well, after all its just this once. Once, that’s all…really?
