Damn! What a good book!
There may have been some tropes, cliches, etc. but I DIDN'T CARE.
Hi, my name is Ery, and I'm an emotional reader.
The summary is fairly accurate, so no repeats here. What I really enjoyed was Danny's strength, as books with more effeminate characters tend to make them more damaged/needy. Not so much of that here (except that he falls for Mr-in-the-closet).
The pacing was stellar, the sex was hot. There was actual, believable emotion throughout. There was just enough angst and uncertainty to keep me riveted.
Why not a five? It kind of fell off at the end. Of course, that may be because I was still up reading at 3 am.....
