Reading this book was like watching The Hurt Locker, it was told through Cooper’s perspective – an ex-Juilliard student who’s trying to escape his past that led him to St.Nacho’s – a popular gay bar in California. There, he met Shawn, the beautiful deaf bus boy who showed him something that renewed his belief in love and forgiveness. But his past came gnawing at him that took him back to where all the dark demons of his life started.
The book was painfully slow-paced and the tone of the narration was too depressing – as in all throughout the book! This is my third book by Maxfield and the writing was totally different from the first two books I’ve read from her. This first book from the St.Nacho’s series felt a bit too detached in comparison.
Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
