This was my first time reading this author and I enjoyed this book. The plot was good and was well written. These two guys were smoking hot together. Some of the scenes....whew! My only complaint was the ending. It was very abrupt and left things kind of hanging. The guys were happy at the end so I wasn't upset but I felt like the story wasn't actually over. I probably would have given the book a higher rating had the ending been smoother or if the author had included an epilogue. Overall though I really enjoyed the book and will try this author's work again.
*It should be noted that Kevin cheats on his girlfriend at the beginning of the book so be aware for those of you who consider cheating a deal breaker.
