This is a short novella but short doesn't mean no plot, paper thin character. Nope. We get the classic Boy walks into a bar, meets Boy behind the bar. Sparks happen. Hot sparks happen. It could have been just a erotic romp but it's not. You care about Jay's past and how he got behind that bar, you want to see Patrick's built up walls crumble. Two strangers meet at the precise moment in their lives and they change either others lives, in a good, incredible way. I liked it. More like 3 3/4 stars.
