This story had so much going for it, from the tender, beautiful main character Simon whom everyone seemed gravitate towards, to his boyfriend Michael who was actually a nice man trapped in a tough spirited possessive soul he may or may not be able to escape. Add to the mix Honey, a feisty but sweet bff from the club Simon works at who has known Simon for a very long time. And finally stir in Drew, a mild mannered but knight in shining armor type who just can’t take his eyes off of Simon since he started working at the club also, esp since his heart is telling his eyes that his mind and soul are already in love. What you have is a stew of a love story that would make any lover of soap operas happy, and any romantic sigh. Be warned, there is violence, and some heart break, as Simon acts not smartly and Michael acts possessive.
I kept wanting Simon to become smarter. But, facts state, not everyone is smart, and esp not everyone that is pretty has brains. And the end is kind of left open somewhat, but does tie up nicely in some ways. This made me think: sequel? All in all, I liked reading this, from the cringing reality, to the warming gentleness. I thought about it afterwards, and if a story stays with you after you have read, you know it was a good one. Especially, a love story.
Early in the tale we meet Drew who also works in Simon's dance club and we quickly realize that he has the hots for our boy. I could see the end coming a mile off. Well maybe not a mile exactly; this is a very short work.
A fairly minor point - perhaps the author should do some research into how live theatre and dance clubs actually work. Shortly after Drew appears we are told he is the Performance Director. Then we realize that the only person who is actually directing is an irritable and demanding choreographer who wouldn't welcome any kind of collaboration. Later on we are told that Drew is actually the Production Manager when all the time he is the Wardobe Master. Confusing. The book has an attractive cover
