3.5 stars. Very touching story about a young man whose dreams are shattered by family responsibility. I couldn't help but sympathise with Greg, who has had to give up so much. Chase is exactly what he needs.

Sweet and touching story. I found myself rooting for Greg the whole time. I didn't want to stop reading until I found out how the whole thing turned out!! I'm so glad I read this book. Very well done and the sex was hot as well. Recommend wholeheartedly!!

This story didn't work for me. Chase and Greg were simply not compatible. I didn't enjoy this story. Greg was to focused on his family, dad and work and lost himself within it. The part with Chase was nearly pushed and forced. I didn't liked them as a couple. That was maybe because they didn't feel right.

I read 3/4 of it and was too bored to continue. Plus the name overuse in conversation was irking me.
