I think the one thing I love about the Jay Hogan is the realism in her books, how yes it is fiction, but oh wow, it could so be a real life situation. From the first page, I found that I was pulled into the story, and did become a little like a yo yo with what I thought of both Drake and Caleb at times.... from really loving them one minute to getting really frustrated and angry with them for another.
The other characters within the book, especially Carmen/Daniel (I will admit that some of the lines from Carmen had me really laughing.), were all wonderful and I hope that in the future we meet Aaron again, with his story, which I think will also mean that we will see more of Carmen too!! I do believe that Carmen is what Aaron needs to give more confidence again in himself.
It was great how the relationship between Drake and Caleb was started - well, I mean after the arrest!! The two were attracted to the other, but it seemed like Drake was going to let past experiences stop him from even trying with Caleb, but then Caleb's previous track record and the comments from his best friend did make you wonder if he was just looking for a good time with Drake., never to be considered as a long term thing.
Drake and Caleb do seem to be making some progress together, but although it is obvious that they care about the other, it doesn't seem to be going far, and sad to say that most of this is on Drake. However, things change dramatically when then their jobs impact their lives in the biggest way possible. When Drake's job impacts their lives, this is one time I did get annoyed with him, and really did feel for Caleb, as it seemed like nothing Caleb could do would be good enough for Drake.
Then total disaster when Caleb's job impacts his life, and really not in a good way, and it seems like straight talking Carmen is the one to try and make Drake see what he has been doing to his relationship with Caleb, but is it too late for Caleb and Drake to work things out? .........
