The story has a very, very good plot and solid characters (which I like best in a book). I enjoyed it very much and I read it within the first day of purchase. With all due respect, sex and overly emotional drama get too old, too fast. A good book needs good characters and well-thought plot like in this book in order to be read again and again by me.
So what if the romance is slow-pacing?! For me it's logical that well-founded, long-term feelings need time to be built and acknowledged by the characters and by the reader. So the confession is that much sweeter in the end.
The investigations are very entertaining for me and it's interesting to see what will be the result. AND the main character just happens to be gay and in search of himself and maybe love, which sometimes is secondary or parallel to the investigations. SO what? If you want a whirlwind romance and a love profession every 5 minutes... with the plot secondary to everything else... then your expectations will not be met.
If you want to read a well-put together book, then come on over and buy it. You won't regret it.
