I gave this book an extra star for a true gay-for-you plotline. I enjoyed it and read through it quickly. At this point, having read so many excelled m/m romances this one just felt 'ok', nothing particularly special or sparkling about the writing. There was some attempt at wit in it, but it wasn't particularly witty (as opposed to a book like Shattered Glass or anything by Josh Lanyon). But it is a fun trope, a believable progression and the sex scenes were pretty steamy. The 'crisis' at the end, where Zane pushes Eli away, felt utterly manufactured as there was really no reason for it and the author had not set the character up that way. But overall a decent read.
