There's a laid back drifting quality to the romance between Nate, a midwesterner who ends up in Venice Beach & Jez with the hippie style background. Nate doesn't so much make decisions as he let things happen to him, so when a stranger he just meets, Jez offers him a place to live he impulsively agrees to it. The depiction of Jez & Nate's transition from friends to lovers makes for a very enjoyable read. It's not quite a GFY story & more the fact that Nate has hidden that aspect of himself from himself for a long time.

The Venice beach atmosphere is captured well & you can almost feel the waves (although there is no actual surfing in this story). Old Hollywood is also a constant character in the story as Jez & Nate are old movie buffs. There are some interesting side characters like Arthur & Mark that provided the subplots in the story. I'd recommend this for someone looking for a fairly angst free book about two regular guys falling in love
