Blurb: Over thirty and at a crossroads in his life, freelance writer Chris Thorne is searching for himself. At odds with his traditional family and chafing from the expectations of a close female friend, Chris faces more than the isolation of a life spent in front of his laptop, it is more the loneliness of his true self-struggling for acceptance against the judgment of those around him.
When Tony Costanzo, the handsome son of Chris’s Italian neighbors, comes for a two-week vacation from New York to help his father with renovations, Chris and Tony form a close bond that extends beyond mere friendship. Discovering that they are two souls constrained by tradition, they take the first step in moving beyond the isolation of their lives.
Review: Wasn’t sure about this book. The author did tend to ramble a bit and give more description of people and things than necessary. However, I did like how he described what Chris was feeling about Tony and gave a little background information about his experiences that helped him to discover his sexuality. I loved the chemistry between Tony and Chris and how Tony just took control and swept Chris away.
The ending left an opening for a possible relationship between the two. I liked that also. Rooting for them if there is another book
