When Matthew intervenes to save a young lad from a gang of four rough bikers he doesn't know what he's letting himself in for.

If i could go back in time and stop reading the book around the 300th page, i would do it in a sec.

The story is belivable and interesting to fallow. I liked Matthew
more then Lucas but then that's because he was mature even if being
emotionally messed up. Lucas is for my thoughts to childish
and unresonable but you can understand his way of behaving, too.
And again all misunderstandings where made because both caracters
didn't communicate enought, and being scared of feelings. The story is emotional bomb and good written.
Over all the book is fantastic story with good happy ending :).

What on earth happened at the third part of the story? Main characters acting completely irrationally and weird plot twists all around. I really liked the first two parts (meaning first 300 hundred pages) so for the most part it was a cute and enjoyable romance between a bit prick-ish architect who involuntarily falls for a sweet young (17) want-to-be actor who is going through a hard patch in his life.

Combination coming-of age and psychological mystery with gay protagonists. Super well written. The back story for Matthew was extremely interesting.
