Roan is a tornado. Short but strong, full of live and very overwhelming. Anthony would be not contrary to the idea of some hot sex between cooking lessons, but Roan is till the beginning very clear: he wants all and forever. Forever is something that Anthony has always avoid, but Roan is like a magnete, impossible to resist.
The book is a blurr like Roan himself. You would be run over by the words like Anthony is run over by Roan: impossible to resist but also impossible to stop. Both Roan and the book!
The story is all about Anthony, you will read his side of the story and so you will be overwhelmed by Roan like Anthony; cause Roan act and don't talk. And you don't know why he is so, you only know that he makes Anthony feel good and so he can't be a bad guy (or maybe he is "bad" enough!). I like Roan, but seeing him with Anthony's eyes, how I can't like him? He is not only the better sex of Anthony's life, he is also maybe the first person who wants to see past the happy-to-go image of Anthony and gets to know the "real" man and not the gay guy image he projects.
