Wow, talk about dissappointment. I read all the reviews and was really looking forward to this book! What a waste! I always finish books, and this one I had to force myself to pick up again. Kept hoping it would get better, but it never did. The writing was juvenile and uninteresting. She didnt make me care about either character at all. Both characters are supposedly straight in the beginning. Mark was coming on strong to Steve with the innuendo and heated looks, and Steve didnt seem to react at all to it, other than this great anger he had over this foreign guy coming in on his turf threatening his account. The only emotion we got from Steve in the beginning was Fury, which didnt make me like him, and in the end he was a weepy pathetic fool begging for scraps. Then Mark, who was all charm and oosing sex appeal, turned around and sulked like a little boy when Steve finally bit back. The emotions of both characters were one dimensional and unrealistic. The sex was sooooo unfeeling and unbelievable. For two straight guys having their first male/male sexual encounter, it was even more unbelievable. They both just seemed to fall in love with no hangups or wonder at the newness and emotional happiness of being in love that comes from any kind of relationship, and none of the physical hunger you have for a new partner. You would think this would be amplified if you'd never had sex with a man, but all the sex scenes were just horribly boring. Dont waste your money.

I came to the book through the DVD version, which has some very handsome stars in it, especially Eric Presnall. Who, while handsome, seems to be to young to be an ex LAPD cop. The book is better, because the author provides more background and more detail. The desert scene is pivotal to the plot and the characters. Unlike other readers, I found the book to be very well written and atmospheric. While Steve is the 'hero', the most complex character is Mark. His god like looks and beauty cover intense insecurities and fears. Mark is battered by his family background and his inability to deal with himself and those around him, who invariably fall for his beauty. In my reading, Mark is pulled this way and that by his family, Jack, his fiancé and Steve who is determined to get his man. This is a great read and a good psychological study. See the movie, and then read the book.
