3.5 stars Honestly, I would have enjoyed some more time on Des rehabbing Joe. Those were some of the most interesting parts of the story. The characters were a bit frustrating - it felt like everyone was determined to make and keep themselves miserable. The sex between Zach and Des happens off-page, fade to black kinda thing. It's mostly heated glances and a couple stolen kisses. Tame, but still an enjoyable story.
