This book was a lot of fun! I appreciated the sharp, concise writing style and the twisty, turny relationship development between the prickly Mateo and still-waters-run-deep Christopher, particularly the gradual reveal of what exactly Mateo's hangups were. The side characters Emily and especially Cameron were delightful. I could have used a little bit more with Douglas (I felt some inconsistency with his characterization), but the plot was well paced and cheerful, not to mention exciting! I broke out cackling several times over some absolute gems of one-liners. My piny bone (like the funny bone, only it goes off when there is a delicious amount of pining going on somewhere) was aching wonderfully. A short, sweet read with a romantic finish.
