** spoiler alert ** This book had the potential to get 4.5 stars from me. The first 87% of the book was great. The plot was believable. The chemistry between Brandon and Dustin was amazing. Witt has the ability to write amazingly passionate sex scenes, scenes that are so intense that you could literary feel your own blood quicken and leaves you wondering if you climaxed with her characters or are just severely turned on. Either way, the ride is great. This is the second book I read by this author and I'm starting to feel like there is a pattern to her endings. Either she leaves a lot of the issues (i.e. Communication) unresolved or the character that was wronged forgives his SO without any hesitation. In Brandon's case, I felt like he was in the right to not allow himself to be a dirty little secret, when said secret was out anyway. Dustin goes off fucks two people, decides okay I'm bisexual and now I realize I'm in love with Brandon (okay I hated it, but I get the need to want to make sure what his sexuality is, but gods I hated it. I felt like I was being cheated on) but after the realization when its time to give Brandon a reason to come back, Dustin chokes and can't even tell him that he loves him... But Brandon forgives him anyway, even knowing he was off bedding a male and female less than a week after the split??? No. That's what bothered me. I felt like Brandon was more than understanding w Dustins problem and for him not to get a solid commitment or a confession of love? I felt he was cheated which in turn left me cheated. The writing is great, the chemistry is off the roof but the problem solving? Defintely needs work. I may change this review and give it 4 or 5 stars if she was writing part 2 because it definitely could use it.

For now I give it a 3.5

Ely bb, I just read on the author's site that part 2 is coming out in October of this year!! yay! It's a novella and it will be called Rain. I can't wait because seriously, the ending upset me. I felt like Brandon should have gotten some revenge sex or something!!
