    There are some (very minor) spoilers in this review, but those are not really spoilery enough to spoil the reading experience, in my opinion. Just a FYI. So. This one was a bit of a rollercoaster for me. John is one cynic, mysogynistic, misanthropic, homophobic, conceited piece of shit--totally full of himself, hates everybody, thinks everybody is below him. And I hated him. But, oddly enough, I grew to love to hate him. Figure.

Just a FYI. So. This one was a bit of a rollercoaster for me. John is one cynic, mysogynistic, misanthropic, homophobic, conceited piece of shit--totally full of himself, hates everybody, thinks everybody is below him. And I hated him. But, oddly enough, I grew to love to hate him. Figure. (Well, maybe not that odd considering that Filth--with James McAvoy's performance as Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson--is one of my favourite films ever, so there's that.) So, there's me, starting to seriously love the book, intrigued beyond words about John and Goodrich strange dance around each other. John detesting him as the new member of his division, but being strangely drawn to him at the same time, not really knowing why. Him "bullying" (not quite) Goodrich in a way that practically amounts to them pulling pigtails. It was fun. It was well done. Really. And then, at around 66% it all went to hell. It seemed like the author either wanted to A. come to an end with the story due to losing interest in their own novel or B. didn't know how to write his characters finally getting/being together. Because all of a sudden John makes a total 180° change and suddenly he's sweet and tame like a kitten. Flirtatious. Sugary, even. Talks about love. (When he, before, was more than contemptuous of both the idea/sentiment and people falling for it.) Having no problem that the object of his loving is, on top of that, a man. (A Man! It was made quite clear that men loving, even just fucking, other men was more than a weakness, was absurd, was despicable.) Now, though, it is not a problem at all. Riiiiiiiight. Oh, and then, on the last couple of pages of the book, he does it again. Does something totally against his character (or that what the reader was made to believe was his character in the first 2/3 of the book). He suddenly recognises the error of his ways, grows a conscience, gains a moral compass and deems himself not worthy of Goodrich. Where the bloody hell did that come from? I certainly have no idea. (But don't despair, that is a very short development in the very end and resolved just as quickly. There's a HEA, don't fret.) Well, this was a solid 4 (maybe even 4.5) star read for the first 2/3 of the book. It went downhill from there. Rapidly. I find myself incapable of rewarding more than 3 stars due to that reason.

    A m/m book should NOT start with an MC getting head from a woman! Ugh!! DNF!

    2.5 Proofing is rough, and one of the main characters is a complete asshat for the first half of the book.

    Well, so far, since I am still in the reading process, I have to give this one only 2 stars. Not because it was bad or anything. I simply have a problem with a M/M book starting off, with the very first sentence, with one of the MC's getting a BJ from a WOMAN. Now, mind you, I am not against M/F scenes being in M/M books regardless of how detailed they are or aren't. But, for me, my personal choice is that I avoid M/M books that have M/F scenes in them.

Now, mind you, I am not against M/F scenes being in M/M books regardless of how detailed they are or aren't. But, for me, my personal choice is that I avoid M/M books that have M/F scenes in them. I know there are other readers out there like me. So, all I ask is that authors make a mention in the blurb that there are such scenes contained within their book so that those of us who don't like M/F scenes in our stories can make our reading choices in an informed manner. I haven't gotten too far in this one as I'm still reading it so I don't know if there are any more M/F scenes in it. If there are more I may end up DNFing this one. *at 81% read* "So finally, in this "M/M" book, we get to the actually M/M part. While I was glad to finally get to read about the two MC's addressing and acting on their affection for one another, I was really annoyed at the way one of the MC(who was having his first experiences with a man) droned on about his past sex with women by comparing and commenting. It really took away from the impact that moment stood for." *After finishing book* I changed my previous 2 stars to 1 star for my final review. After waiting until the last 20% of the book to get to the actually romance part, I felt rushed into believing the MC's were actually in love. It was a convoluted mess. Add to that the fact that another sexual encounter between the two MC's involved John's inner dialog about preferring "vaginal intercourse" to "anal sex" was just too much. All in all, even though I have a strong dislike for this book, I won't deter anyone from reading it. Just tread lightly and be aware of what you're going to find within the pages here.

    Well, to give the book 4 or more stars, one has to see it as 2 different parts of a book. Imagine a middle in which the actual development happens. Yeah. That was missing. BUT... ... the first part (2/3) was very interesting with incredibly intriguing characters. And the second part (last third) was totally sweet and heartwarming and still very interesting. Sooooo... how to come from part one to part three (part two in this book, but the missing part would be the actual second part) ... it's reall Well, to give the book 4 or more stars, one has to see it as 2 different parts of a book.

Sooooo... how to come from part one to part three (part two in this book, but the missing part would be the actual second part) ... it's really not impossible, just not at all recounted in the book. So, to Mr./Mrs. Holt, please write that middle part! It would be great, because writing is definitely something you can do and it would bring that book from "good but not completely" to "really good/ great".

    Just that good. The writer takes you down a road you know and nothing is the same. The language of the tale felt like English empowered. Theirs no other way to say it. Look how it still grips me. A fascinating tale, one I will read again and again. And Mr. Holt your a voice I will gladly read again. Quite unique.
