I liked practically everything of this novel, the small town setting, the supporting characters, especially the women (plurals, there is more than one good female supporting characters), Charlie and Gabe, especially Gabe, in his almost naiveté, an oddity considering his side career as male prostitute. But apparently Gabe is doing that more for the need of company, and the feeling of being accepted than for money, when he is Anthony, he is handsome, desired, coveted, and welcomed. Gabe needs only to understand the same can be in his hometown, if he is able to open his heart to who is around him.
The romance was good as it was the little mystery, starting from a simple question of not letting the skeleton out of the closet, ending in the uprising of a whole city against the villains. I hope Charlie and Gabe will understand that, while the small town can have its faults, no chance to maintain a secret, it’s also the only place where they can live together as a couple.
