Review: Nice and short and to the point. The story features a very love square of sorts – Drew is on exchange studying at a uni in Australia, contemplating the ending of his friendship his closeted friend, Brian.
On the beach in Newcastle, NSW, he meets Scott the closeted surf lifesaver, as well as Chris, who works at a backpacker’s hostel. Chris and Drew embark on a platonic friendship, while Drew is busying being attracted to guys who treat him like shit and want to remain closeted.
The plot is that simple and there aren’t any unnecessary side points (great considering this is only 26 pages!). It’s an enjoyable read with some great sexual tension throughout the story. While Chris is correct, that Drew needs to change the type of guys he takes with, I think in the end we can be satisfied that despite some heartache Drew has well and truly learnt his lesson.
