it was ok

This book didn't sit very well with me. I think it's because it was so short that the development of things seemed to border on Stockholm syndrome at best and rapey at worst. I mean Gaven was young, vulnerable, alone, with a shakey grasp on his sexuality and he basically had to have sex with a guy he barely knew in order to gain acceptance and family. I mean I've quite liked some questionable consent books, but only ones with enough length for the story to develop and when he character has more emotional stability.
Though admittedly I probably only feel this way because I read this series in chronoligical order and the characters in "Draconian Measures" were so much stronger.
