I did feel the first day or two at the holiday destination was a bit rough. The other guys in the party were drinking and snarking and generally acting like stupid twentysomethings on holiday (duh!), and Daniel's friend Sam seemed a bit of a jerk. Once Robbo and Daniel got away from the group occasionally and started to be friends, sharing their stories and feelings, I began to really enjoy the story. I liked how the guys worked through their feelings, how perhaps they shouldn't get together, but were drawn to each other both by attraction and the ease with which they got to know each other.
Daniel to Robbo: "Splitting up, getting back together. Losing the love, finding it again. Not finding it. It's all happening all over the world to tens of millions of people right now. I bet there's a table in a bar with two friends in Sydney right now having the same exact conversation. Same in Colorado or British Columbia--but with two women I bet."
I enjoyed many of the thoughtful conversations the guys had with each other and their friends, which did show Sam as a good friend in the end. When Robbo was concerned his friends would treat him differently once he came out as bisexual, I loved the conversation with his buddy Tom drinking beer at the bar. "...when I turned twenty-five, I found I'd developed a taste for bitter. Hadn't liked it before. Love it now....It's no odds to me if you're into wine, or lager, or bitter, or anything else. Just so long as you enjoy what you're...drinking. Right?" I have thought myself, so many times, WHY does the rest of the world care so much about what other people do, who they love, or what they do with their bodies--as long as they aren't hurting anyone else. Wouldn't the world be a much better place, if everyone felt like Tom?
Being young guys, there were of course the appropriate sexy times, but otherwise the friendship and love developed slowly and more like might happen in real life rather than a novel. Also appropriately, the epilogue shows the guys six months on for a truly satisfying and happy ending.
This was a pretty nice romance. I'm beginning to like bi awakenings/straight to gay and the author is doing really well with those and this was no exception. So when Robbo met Daniel there was a little angst/drama on their journey but eventually we get our happy ending for the guys.
