I can pretty much guarantee that you will fall in love with Christian when you first meet him, and also Josh too. I will also say that you will read and be smiling when they first meet too!!
As you meet Christian, you soon realise that he thinks of himself as more or less a freak, and avoids contact with anyone and everyone at all costs. He is holed away in his apartment, and only goes out at night, with the hood pulled up so nobody can see him.
When they finally do meet in person, you can't help but smile at how they meet - although Christian is quite distressed at the time. It is now that Christian also realises that Luke isn't starring at him with disgust, but rather with concern.
This starts a tentative friendship, between them, but the more time they spend together, the more they learn about each other - although there are some crossed wires to begin with! Josh is attracted to Christian as soon as he sees him, but seems hesitant to act on this, and bides his time to approach Christian. Christian is also attracted to Josh, but he is convinced he is unlovable, and nobody would really want him anyway.
Josh takes his time with Christian, and slowly things begin to blossom between them, although you can tell that Christian is so hopeful of something wonderful happening, but then at other times just waiting for things to fail. Is it possible for Josh to show Christian how good things can be between them??
This is a really heart warming story, and you will keep reading to see what happens. Josh is so gentle with Christian, but there is also a side of him that is determined to try and show Christian that he doesn't need to hide away. It also gives you a real insight into what life is like for Christian, and you can totally understand his hesitation at going out into the world, but then you are also willing him to take a chance with Josh, as Josh would never deliberately hurt him, or take him anywhere where this would happen, I guess you could say that Josh is protective of Christian.
