Chuck is a big, bad police detective… or maybe not. Actually Chuck is big, but he is not bad, he is kind-hearted and respectful of old family values, and being kind with innocent and cute boys is probably one of such value. When he meets Herb, and after a good coincidence, he is paired to him by his matchmaking sister, Chuck knows he has met the man of his life. Now the only problem they have is that, once Herb starts to really “live”, he is also open to all dangers outside his bubble, and Chuck needs to protect him to all of them.
The strength of this novel is Herb; the author pushes so much with him, but at the same time Herb is not a false, he is simply, totally without barriers, mentally, bodily and verbally. As the people around him, the reader will wonder if he does and says things with a purpose or simply since they are the first things passing his mind, and in the end, you will realize that yes, it’s the second; plotting something is already a level of sophistication that totally escapes someone like Herb. Herb has no false bone in him.
While Herb can be at some level irritating, Chuck is so good boy that he never once falters in his love for him, and he loves everything of Herb, geekiness included, moreover, geekiness more than everything.
