My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I liked this one the best out of all in this series as there’s nothing sweeter than someone getting a second chance at love.
However, I think there was a touch too much introspection on Gage’s part as he repeatedly weighed up whether he could love Beck because of Johnny.
I mean I totally get that you don’t ever get over the death of a loved one and the particular circumstances here were heart breaking tragic, but still it was heading slightly into masochistic tendencies the amount of times he mentally beat himself up over every piece of enjoyment.
Beck was awesome though, I completely loved him. Unabashed about his love of make up, lace underwear and heels, he had an irrepressible spirit and just oozed joy.
He did provide the perfect foil for Gage and helped him move back into the world of the truly living and I do like this setting with its close knit bunch of friends.
