This is a classic romance novel. Boy meets boy. Boys don't want to fall in love, are commitment shy, workaholic. The romance grows slowly. Jonathan and Cole, although at first not the most appealing characters, will make you care about their lives, theirs fears, where they are going. This is book 4 of a very loosely linked series. I haven't read the first 3 books. I might but this novel stands on its own. For classic romance novels readers. It's more about emotions and love then explicit sex. There isn't much explicit sex (try almost none) but the emotional pull/angst is strong and worth the read.
