I wanted to love the book so much because I enjoyed reading about the characters and their development as the story progressed. However, because of my eagerness for something to happen between Derek and Christian, I was a little disappointed when Christian's character was reduced to almost nothing of importance to Derek's love life. I don't buy Hunter's hesitation in telling Derek the reason why he did not want Derek to work (as a shoe salesman). I do know of people who find it difficult to say ...more

Absolutely loved this book, and it's one of my favorites. As someone who works in a mall and has for five years now, I loved that many of the employeees literally lived in the mall. There were times when I wished I could live in my mall, because it would be so convenient to get too and from work. Some of the situations seemed ridiculous, yes, but that is part of what made the book so fun to read. I liked the behind the scenes aspects of the mall, and they felt real to me because some of them I'v ...more

One of my very favorite books! It's character driven, so when the odd situations go too far, or falter a bit, there's real people responding realistically to them. It's funny and fun, and the idea of the universe motif of the mall doesn't go over the edge, to my mind. It's a little convoluted, and some is unnecessary, but that's what makes it feel so natural to me.

The Character of Natasha is inspired genius, to my mind, from start to finish. I always sympathize with the bad guy, but with the nar

A fun lightweight read......a beach book in the middle of the winter. Nothing profound, but if you are looking for something that's a nice diversion, check it out.

I love this book, It is a comfort book that I go back to because it make me laugh at the antics that Derek get up to or deals with. I will read TJB anytime. would like to see a sequel where there is more interaction between Hunter and Derek's friends. The story touches many issue beyond gay issues.
James Snow
Not one of my favorites. I liked some of the characters and the dynamics and I found myself wanting to know how it all wrapped up, so that's a good thing. Some of the subplots were just really inane and I could have done without those, but overall it was an enjoyable read.

I wanted to like this because it was a recommendation from a friend.
I didn't.
I now doubt his sanity. I was a third of the way in when I had an overwhelming urge of "who cares".
If I worked with someone who took as many breaks as that Vienna did I'd have her fired and why is everyone sooooo whiny!! Ugh. Waste of a day off.
I really tried to finish this truly trite little book.
I did not.
The characters are boring and vapid, and to have this whole story set in a mall is just kind of stupid and depressing all at the same time.

At least throw in a few hot sex scenes. But this book is no where near that daring....

I loved this book, this author is one I have come to really love he writes so sweetly about the LGBT community and I respect that. He also makes his characters funny, witty and loveable.

Beck does a good job of following multiple character storylines. I enjoy the way all the story lines go together and apart from each other as the characters meet and interact.

Queer Chick Lit (Quik Lit). My favorite character only appeared very briefly, but it was enough.
