3.75 stars. I really like this series. Though this one was not my favorite, it was an entertaining read. In this ca both guys knew they were gay but were still in the closet. The plot felt a little formulaic and rushed. For example, after the build-up of Griff's parents being very anti-gay, the scene where he tells them is skipped and rather glossed over as an afterthought (they didn't like it but didn't get too weird). Also, both characters were rather reclusive so there wasn't a lot of action outside the romance. Still worth it as a quick read.
