DNF @ 54%.

There is a distinct lack of personality coming from both MCs. Michael is hot and sad (because of his partner dying 6.5 years ago). Jag is hot and sad (because his parents sent him to conversion therapy and now he's constantly on the run after escaping). That's about it, as far as personality goes.

Then there is all the dance talk. There's a lot of pole dancing moves used... I looked up the first few online but got tired of that rather quickly. And on top of that, there is a lot of describing of body positions and transitions. I can't visualize things, so I just ended up skimming over all those parts, which there were a fair bit in the first few chapters.

At the 54%, almost the entirety of the story has taken place within Heaven & Hell. There are a few scenes at Jag's bedsit and one at the grocery store. The rest is dancing at the bar, sex at the bar, repeat.

Then there is little things like in Chapter 16, when Jag muses that he doesn't know how long ago Michael's partner died, even though Michael told him in Chapter 10 that he died 6.5 years ago.

Overall, the plot and the characters are too dull to what to continue with the other 46%.
