Now don’t think I didn’t like the story cause I really didn’t like Ricky, on the contrary, I loved the challenged it involved to understand Jon and his love for Ricky; in a way, I did like Ricky like someone with the Red Cross nurse syndrome would like him, wanting to save the desperate soul, believing you are the only one who could spare him from a dark future.
I’m not sure this is really the end for Ricky and Jon, Jon did grow a pair and was able to stand up to Ricky, but, as I said, I still think Ricky did it for the wrong reason, to have Jon back, and not cause he was really convinced that was the best for him. Plus I did miss the part in which Ricky tries to merge with Jon’s family and background, meeting parents and relatives, mingle with the good society he apparently is not part of. Moreover, there is still unresolved issues in Ricky’s past, basically Jon doesn’t really know him and his origins, making a relationship between them really difficult.
I’m not saying this book is missing something, already like this it was longer than usual, but I would consider if I was the author to revisit these two.
