    1. This story was as bland as oatmeal. The characters were one dimensional and lacked any kind of spark to make them either likable or unlikable. Allan had a passion for LGBT rights but it was only brought out to cause problems for him. This could have been a pretty good story if the author had put some heart into it.

    4. I thought this was a sweet book. It didnt really get me all worked up, but I loved AllanI had a weak moment where I really wanted Allan and Micky to end up together I mean, how sweet was the moment they had at the end? I really didnt like Jacob all that much, and kinda hated him for walking out on Allan all the time. Whats up with not staying to fight for your relationship, dude? And Allan even kept saying that Jacob had a power over him. So I didnt really want them to end up together. But after [...]

    5. hehe, the leopard thong and skateboarding just reminded me of jackals. This book was really awesome, I didn't know what was going to happen. When the end came I was so shock.
