Review by: J. R. Tomlin on July 22, 2011 :
I liked this novel. The two MCs are believable and likable, even Ryan who is pretty angry, but very understandably. The romance is sweet but the problems keep it from being too sweet. I enjoyed it right up to the point when the author had the two protagonists have unsafe, unprotected sex.

HIV infection has increased, especially among the young because of this attitude. Normally, I don't tell authors to vary their plot because of "social responsibility" but this wasn't even a necessary part of the plot. Apparently the author thought it was cute and romantic. It isn't.

Beyond that, although this is a good and believable story about young men who have some serious problems and are struggling to reach beyond them, there really isn't a feeling of closure. Most of their problems still aren't solved at the end of the story and there are simply too many loose ends to make a satisfactory ending.

At the least, a sequel is needed (and I hope they don't have AIDS). It's good enough that I still give it four stars in spite of what I consider some problems.

A great story about normal people. Snyder never disappoints me with a good down to earth read.
