    Plot and Thoughts

    Since it is not provided here is the plot summary from the back of the book:
    "Eric Folke wakes after a night of heavy drinking and looks reality straight in the eye. He's been hiding his true self behind unhappiness, anger, and a girlfriend he doesn't want-- and it has to stop. Making a critical decision, he attends a dance, trying to face his true feelings rather than hide them. There he meets Nick Bertolli, a fabulously beautiful man filled with an ocean of love he needs to share, love that will help Eric heal and grow. As Eric accepts what is in his heart, he and Nick will face several obstacles on the road to happiness. Eric's ex-girlfrind, Nick's abusive former partner, and a terrible act of violence will test them, but their affection and desire for one another will never falter. Of one thing they can be sure: they will always love one another."

    I'm sorry to say, this book is poorly written. Sampson attempts to pack all the descriptions into the dialogue, causing the dialogue to lose any flow, and seem fake. Outside of dialogue, there is very little good descriptions. As I read, I found myself wondering what the rest of the book could possibly be about. It's only redeeming factors are it's romantic quality, it's dramatic portrayal of the hardships gay men may face, and it's realistic view on dating and sex. (To clarify the last point, Nick and Eric actually go on a couple of dates before having sex.)

    Overall, I would not buy this book, and if you do, buy it used. If your local library has it, I suggest checking it out. While not the best book I've read, it will probably provide a little bit of entertainment.

    Great read

    A sweet story about 2 men falling in love. Angsty things happen to them but not between them which is a nice change. Hot sex scenes put this right up there with my other favorite feel-good reads.
