Will was his total opposite, he was a geek, but he was a brilliant musician, it didn't matter which instrument he played, he could make wonderul music. What Will doesn't like is being in the limelight, it is like he hides himself away, he doesn't want people to know his real talents - and he definitely doesn't want to be in a band. He is also only just stepping out of the closet and not sure if he wants to be all the way out, or would rather step back into it.
Rand decides to have lessons to improve his guitar playing, and he is given Wills details. They start having lessons, and Rand finds that he is incredibly attracted to Will, but he is unsure why, as Will is the complete opposite of who is usually attracted to. Will also has a hidden side, which Rand craves for even more.
They start a relationship of sorts, but again Rand seems to do things his way, and doesn't see that he is hurting Will some of the time with his actions. Rand seems to find it hard that Will doesn't want the same things in life that he does, and pushes Will to his limit some of the time. I don't think Rand actually listened properly to what Will was saying to him, or rather he chose to ignore it - as it didn't suit him to take in what was being said.
However, somebody decides to cause big problems for both Will and Rand, but Will is the worst affected, Rand seems to start to come to his senses and realises that what he has or rather had with Will was something special. Has he realised too late what he had or is it even possible for him to convince Will to stay with him and let their relationship blossom?
Although it took me a little while to get into the book, after a couple of chapters I was hooked. You realise why Will is so shy, and little by little he reveals titbits of information from his past, and you soon learn why he is so far in the closet. You also see Rand grow up too, when he finally gets his head on straight, especially when he finally sees there is more to his life than the music, and he could just have lost the best thing that happened to him.
