The writing style was choppy & awkward. I often had difficulty working out who was talking/thinking & had to stop & re-read sections to sort out what was happening. The scenes jumped around too much as well. I have come to expect a superior writing style from Scott so was doubly disappointed by the awkward wording, phrasing & paragraphing. This story felt 'unfinished' to me.
There was a lot of unexplored background that was never developed in the book. Jacob, supposedly so 'bad' he needs to return to jail or community service yet his only 'crime' given detailed explanation in the book was childish petulance. I was left wondering how such a hard-core addict could recover & stay sober with so little apparent difficulty. His sobriety was too 'perfect' for want of a better word. Ethan was a character that alluded to depth of feeling with his panic attacks & need-to-serve-to-overcome-grief, but this facet of the storyline was left under-developed.
Then there was the developing relationship. Ethan crossed so many lines by starting his relationship with Jacob both personal & professional. His original 'hate' of Jacob is too quickly swamped by lust. Ethan is Jacobs 'jailer' (sort of) & community supervisor yet his remorse over breaking that professional code by sleeping with Jacob is too brief & shallow to be believable. Then there was a tantalising glimpse of Jacob needing to bottom for Ethan before Jacob suddenly becomes über Alpha & dominating.
There was a lot of good elements to this story but I felt that they weren't developed well. I got the impression that this book was rushed & unfinished & that if it were reviewed & edited; expanded & re-organised it would be a great read.
Jacob started as a spoiled brat I didn't like very much. That is the magic of Rj's characters. You can visualize them and the world they live in. You can see all of the aspects of their personalities. You love them, hate them, you see them and understand them. And it was a pleasure to watch Jacob grow up and figure out who he was. Ethan maybe wasn't as well rounded as a character. I liked him and yet I wanted a bit more out of him. To have seen more of his history and how he got to Macs.
The secondary cast of characters add so much to this story. Here again, I'd have liked to learn more about them. You know enough to satisfy you and move the story along. But yeah, I always want more. But that's just me and I never want a story to end.
As always with an Rj story, I loved it. So if you want an enjoyable, well written read and to escape life for awhile, pick this up.
I just read it more to finish it since I bought.
Ethan Myers is a pretty mellow character that had a lot on his plate, trying to run his community center with minimum fund is not a walk in the park. The last thing he needs is to babysit a celebrity brat.
The story started off promising with an enemies to lovers vibe. I love those. Jacob is so hateful and a class A jerk of epic proportion. He had too many issue to count, but most of it was not being explore. Ethan is dealing with grief of his own by losing his lover, but it isn't a big deal for their relationship development.
What really threw me is how easily Jacob just change. There is a mentioned of the time he spent at the center, but I didn't actually get to see his transformation. He just became a change man in my eyes just after one incident. But for what is worth, I do like the Jacob 2.0. I didn't even expect him to be the caring one in the relationship and doing all the right things. As for Ethan, I expect him to put up a bit more resistance in starting a sexual relationship with Jacob seeing as he is sort of in-charge of overseeing Jacob's community service. Bottom line is, for such a set up I'm expecting a bit more drama and complication.
Please note that I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.
