When Leon first saw him singing in a dive bar, he was mesmerized. But he didn't know he'd be going home with the dangerously sexy lead singer that night. He couldn't have predicted he'd fall in love. But then, Leon never expected his love to be reciprocated. Yet the hot singer with the gravely voice told Leon he loved him; told him he’d come back.

So, why, three years after

I really like the way Rick set this one up, I like that it didn't have the 'expected' happy ending, but still had a good one. It was a fun short read worth the time.

A bit of a darker romance than I usually read when looking for a romantic read. I felt Leon was quite naive and/or suffered grandiose delusions and he was a bit immature. He got his heartbroken by a one night stand whom he believed he loved and was loved by. He created this situation on his own(yea okay the guy egged him on but he never gave up even when the guy turned him away) and when he didn't get what he wanted decided he was going to end his life. Russell was a great addition to the story ...more

Rating is for the writing: thought the voice was clear. The tension between Russell and Leon was good. However, I felt Leon was shallow and couldn't get on board.
