Weird. I read this maybe a year and half ago. Didn't rate or review it and my memory of it was - meh. But a friend just mentioned how much she enjoyed it and I decided to re-read it and see why I hadn't liked it. I couldn't tell you because this time around, I found it a ton of fun. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps at the time I wanted a flat out m/m romance which this isn't. Not sure. But I am sure I'll be reading book two.
