Where to start? Let's start with Xander. He's not what you would think he would be at first glance or even second. He's a complicated character and he makes rash decisions based on emotion. Which I thought was interesting given his childhood and how he had to grow up so very fast. He was raised by his great aunt who reminds me of the grandma from Halloweentown, she's quite eccentric.
Taylor came back from war after leaving home to stop himself from acting on his attraction to Xander. But even after many years , he can't stop wanting Xan and Xan can't stop wanting Taylor. Oh Xan tries though and that broke my heart. Those scenes left me uncomfortable. I will say there were a few scenes that were borderline dubious consent and I don't like that. I don't like that at all , which is why I gave it 4 stars and not 5. Yes, the issue of consent was addressed but when someone is under the influence of narcotics , I don't think they have control of their full mental faculties and I wasn't satisfied with the explanation behind those particular scenes. It left me feeling really frustrated because I don't find that to be a necessary plot device. Thankfully, I was able to move on from that and focus again on the actual story. I loved the story. I loved Xan and Taylor and I knew about Taylor's situation before it was made clear. Xan's reaction was completely understandable and Taylor's inability to communicate without his dick was super annoying. Entertaining but annoying. He gets there. Eventually. With a lot of help. Xan learns to listen. It was a great story with few hiccups but all in all , I am glad I bought it.
I want a sequel. A certain other closet cop comes to mind.
So, I like this story even though it took awhile to like the characters. Now having said this, it felt like there were at least five, maybe more stories that were all meshed together. I wish that they had been delved into separately because there was enough going on for each to be a stand alone story. There is resolution, but it's costly for the reader because there was so much more this could be. I still recommend it, but it would have been nice as a series.
