This is a short story by Cassidy Ryan. I have to admit that I was more then a little surprised by how good it is. I found myself sucked into the story like it is no ones business.

This book features primarily Ben and Aidan. They first met when Aidan came in to the computer store that Ben works at and the Sparks flew so hot that it is wonder they did not burn down the store. A year after they started their on again off again romanance Ben learns some disturbing secrets of Aidan’s that he just cannot overlook and it changes everythin he thought he knew about the man…..not to mention their lives.

This story was constructed to draw you in quickly and left you gasping at every turn. I found myself hating Aidan only to turn the next page and feel for the man and turning the page again and hoping that Dan and Aidan will end up together. This is not just a gay romance, it is also a mystery and you will be surprised too the end. Great job Cassidy Ryan.


Triggers: Attempted suicide
This was a very short, intriguing read.  It definitely left me wanting more from the story, but sucked you in right away too.

It would have been awesome if the story were drawn out a little, but Ryan did a good job at getting the reader to buy in to the story right away.  The conflicts are well planned and they are resolved in the same fashion.

Overall, if you’re looking for a very quick read with good angst, then this is your book.
