We first meet James, who needs help with his truck, and Dylan comes to his rescue. The two are drawn to each other, and thus begins the fledgling relationship between the two. James is still at High School, and as he has a rather over protective father, he keeps quiet about Dylan.
At the same time that this is happening, Mark (Jame's father) has met someone at a bar - Steve (who is Dylan's father), for what was meant to be just a hook-up, however there is more to the relationship although it does seem like Mark and Steve are shying away from acknowledging this.
When Mark decides to have a family barbeque, he also decides that inviting Steve would be good, so that James and his twin Frankie can finally meet him. At the same time, James have decided to invite Dylan so that he can meet his family....... not having an inkling of what is going to happen when everyone finally meets.
I am not going to spoil it and say what happens, but wow the emotions pouring from the page now really had me with a lump in my throat. I especially liked how you were seeing this from everyones viewpoint, but I will admit at times I really wanted to reach into the book and shake sense into a few characters. At the same time, I could see why each one of them was upset, but it was the reaction from some characters that would then annoy me.
If you have not read an Anna Martin book, I would recommend this book.
