I really liked the story and the way it was written. There are two points of view: Zach's and Angelo's. They have two distinct voices: Zach's is more refined, like Zach himself is, cute and tidy, written in a classical third person, simple past; Angelo's is rougher, like Angelo is, very direct and colloquial, written in a raw first person, present tense. This helps give the characters their uniqueness.
Zach is cute and clueless. At the beginning it seems that Angelo is the strong one and Zach is more passive. Zach is older than Angelo (7 years older, if I'm correct) and he is at a point of his life where he feels he has nothing more to give and nothing more to expect. He is in a sort of relationship with Tom, who's simply using him as a sex buddy and treats him very badly, so badly you have to wonder if Zach is stupid or what.
When Angelo enters Zach's life, things begin to change for the better and slowly Angelo becomes everything to Zach: his best employee and his best friend. Zach breaks his relationship with Tom and as a consequence he faces the risk of losing his business. The book is not divided into parts, but when they move to Coda in order to start their new business, everything changes. Zach realizes that Angelo has been in love with him for a while and he embraces his love for the younger man. And here Angelo's problems begin (and what's for me the second part of the book).
Angelo has been abandoned by his mother when he was a little kid, he's grown up in foster homes, he's dropped out of school and he's been living trying to be as independent from anyone else as possible. Zach slowly makes a breach through his defenses. I had a problem with Angelo, even if I loved him to pieces, and that's the reason why I can't give 5 stars: he's 27 but he sounds like a teenager and I don't know if it's because he can't express his feelings or because he is a bit immature. I think that if someone is not used to love and being loved freely, the generosity of the feeling can be overwhelming. There's maybe some kind of selfishness on Angelo's part, but it's probably because of the shields he has to wear to protect himself. I don't know.
I really liked getting in touch again with Matt and Jared. I really loved the paragraph where Angelo talked about the different kinds of love they were giving each other, looking at Matt and Jared's relationship from the outside.
It was fascinating that Zach makes love to Angelo with extreme care and tenderness, while Angelo shows urgency and possessiveness. I think it's the trait of someone who has never had a thing and he finally has something, someone who's not used to having something for themselves. Am I writing an essay about Angelo? He's such a complex character.
The story line with Angelo's mother left me cold. I understand Angelo's reaction, but I can't understand the behavior of his mom, she abandoned him and then she came back so judgmental? I don't understand the point of making her act that way.
I enjoyed this book very much, it moved me and I felt involved in the life of its characters, maybe because they're flawed and hurt and they're looking for a chance and deserve to be, if not happy, at least happier.
This second book we meet the video store owner Zach who is a gay man that never realizes anything around him. The customer Angelo has been trying to meet Zach and finally got a job at the store. They started hanging out and Zach did not even realize the kid was gay. When he figured it out he could not keep from falling for the innocent Ang. Ang is not perfect and has his own problems but he is a match for Zach. Now one thing about this book that killed me was if you are in love why put Ang out to have other guys have sex with him or touch him in front of you. But you find out later in the book and through out the series that the type of love one couple has is not the same for another couple. Jared and Mike from book one appear here and become friends with Zach and Ang.
I recommend this book and the full series to escape to another world.
I loved the interplay between Zach and Angelo. It was nice to have the two POVs. The writing style for Angelo's POV was a little weird but I guess that was meant to reflect on his education perhaps?
My only complaint with the story was there was no talk about safe sex between Zach and Angelo, especially when Tom had unprotected sex with Zach that first time. We know from the story that Angelo was careful with his partners but Zach should have been tested after the incident with Tom.

I absolutely adored Angelo; my heart broke for him so many times for so many reasons. Sigh... okay. Let's start at the beginning...Read more
