First of all, this is a quiet book. Architect Cody comes to a small town in Oregon to renovate an old lighthouse. He meets and gets to know artist Nick, who is here on vacation with his partner Ray. Over the course of the next couple of weeks, Nick and Cody come closer, realizing they are kindred spirits. But Ray can also see the attraction, and starts fighting for Nick the only way he knows how: by guilt-tripping Nick.

Ray is an interesting character, actually the most complicated and intriguing

4.5 stars...I'm glad that Cody got his man. I really wanted to not like Nick's boyfriend Ray because he wasn't a nice person but honestly Ray wasn't the only one to blame for their messed up relationship. Nick shared some blame. It really does take two and if you choose to stay in a dysfunctional relationship than you have to share some blame. I did think that Cody and Nick were good together. I would love to read how they're doing in the future.

This was a gentle, easy read about finding what you want from life. I liked Cody and the happiness and peace he had found by being true to himself shone through. I didn't feel as though we got to know Nick quite as well but he was an interesting character nonetheless. I had a lot of sympathy for Ray. He made a lot of bad decisions and acted like a child for most of the book but I didn't like the way that Nick was trying to change him into someone he wasn't. (view spoiler) ...more

I thought the story was very solid and well paced. It really focuses on what is wrong with Nick and Ray's relationship, allowing us to see what was wrong too with Cody's before. This is a story about feelings and it was good to spend some time with.

This is only the second sort of short story I've read by this auther.
Nothing jumps at me, just a average read.
