Best of all, Seth isn't a romantic guy. An adventurous bi-sexual, he's loud, crass and frequently unwashed, but always up for a good time. His best friend Dino is an upper-class PI, well dressed, old-fashioned and irredeemably straight. Or so he thinks. But when he draws Seth into a simple case that gets complicated in a hurry, he starts to question how deep his devotion to his friend really runs.
More things to convince you that it's the best book ever: While Seth is nurturing a real interest in Dino, he never lapses into the kind of teenage girl angst that so often runs through m/m novels. These men are men, not girls, not caricatures of men, not even what women secretly (or not so secretly) want men to be. They're simply real and it really works. The build up to the romance part is sweet and lengthy but never dull, and it's totally believable. Again, the author isn't just stretching it out to fill pages. Dino's journey to self-discovery (and Seth-discovery) is honest and true. Their friendship alone would be enough to make a great story, and the careful evolution into a sexual relationship seems natural and unforced. They even manage to dance together like two guys hanging out.
Basically, what we have here is the book that every m/m fan wants to read and every writer will wish s/he'd written. I know I do.
