Firstly, I did like the way the book was written, and Caden and Kevin. The ending was too abrupt and didn't give us much about them sorting their problems. What somewhat annoyed me was that this was about a man who liked 'beefy' men and found one that was perfect but that 'beefy' man wasn't allowed to be comfortable in his own body, and so instead of the message being that someone will love you even if you don't conform, it became about something else. I can understand Kevin wanting to be different but I can also understand Caden liking a certain type and finding it hard to deal with Kevin changing. I didn't like Bobby but I guess we weren't meant to and he was a bit of a stereotype in my view. So overall it was a book that kept me reading but I thought the message of the premise wasn't fulfilled by the content of the book.
