Matt is a total slut, and he would agree with me! What you saw if what you got – he said what he thought, often not engaging his brain to mouth filter! I was honestly cringing at some of the things he was saying, mostly due to where he was at the time he said them! Matt has no idea what to do with his life, even after the band parted ways, he seemed to continue the same thing…. Women and alcohol – and always the alcohol to excess.
Alex has always loved Matt, but due to his biggest secret, he has decided his love will be unrequited. He will always be there for Matt, and when the place where Alex works comes up for sale, they decide to embark on a new adventure together as owner and manager of a gay club, which they call Kaleidoscope. They seem to become closer, but when Matt seems to want more from Alex, he runs as fast as he can without any explanation for Matt.
Then Nicola completely excels herself with how she writes when you find out Alex’s secret. It is an essential part of the story, so I am not going to reveal on this review what it is, but this is the first book I have ever read where the subject is treated with such sensitivity, but is also so informative. To me this showed that Nicola had not just added this into the story on a whim, but that she had researched into it thoroughly, to ensure the facts were correct.
Although this book is part of a series, you can actually read as a standalone – which is what happened with me as sad to say I had not read the other books in the series (sorry Nicola, will be remedying this soon). I cannot recommend this book highly enough, as I have already said I believe that this is the best book I have read this year, and I can guarantee that this book will be one that I read again (and again, and again……).
