As a young man, Dominic Jacobsen already suspects he’s gay, and he gets all the confirmation he needs when a rich boy from out of town climbs into the back seat of Dominic’s GTO. One night with Lamar Franklin is all it takes to convince Dominic he’s found the man of his dreams. Unfortunately, that one night is all he’ll get before Lamar returns to Tucson.
Fifteen years later Lamar returns to Coda, Colorado, after ending the latest in a string of bad relationships. He’s alone, depressed, and plagued by late-night phone calls from an unidentified caller. Lamar’s ready to give up when he comes face-to-face with his past.
Since he was seventeen, Dominic has dreamed of a reunion with Lamar, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready for it now. Facing small-town rumors and big-family drama is bad enough, but Dominic won’t risk losing custody of his teenage daughter, Naomi. The only solution is to make sure he and Lamar remain friends and nothing more. Clothes stay on, no matter what.
It seems simple enough. But for better or worse, Lamar has other ideas.
What I loved:
▲ The Prologue
▲ The Epilogue
▲ The secondary characters: Angelo, Zach, Jared, Matt, Naomi, Elena, and Dimitri
Another eye roll. If they ever made condescension an Olympic event, thirteen-year-old girls would undoubtedly take every medal.
▲ The writing style – as always, it is superior
What I disliked:
▼ The main characters: Dominic was a coward and a selfish asshole, Lamar was weak and pathetic (I love his name though). Their development – if you can call it that – was lame and abrupt.
▼ The conflict
▼ The suspense plotline
All in all
