Quick read for the weekend or beach. Obviously, the story would have been enhanced by reading the previous books in the series. It still was quite enjoyable on its own. Will and Theo have an instant attraction. I liked that Will doesn't look down on Theo but does ask him to quit hustling. Theo has a self-possession that isn't defined by what he does. He's obviously loyal to his friends and sees his relationship with Will as something real. A miscommunication causes a rift and I had to smile at Theo's friends running interference between them. Will isn't having it though and pushes through all barriers to get Theo back. My favorite part is Will's invitation for Theo to join his whole family for Memorial Day weekend, his stepmom's reaction was beautiful.
