This was a tough one. Alex went through so much and has been punishing himself for years when he meets Sage, the actor in the TV series based on a book Alex wrote. The two men connect almost immediately, although Sage has a tough time dealing with mixed signals in the beginning. I liked seeing Alex's confidence grow with Sage's love, and my heart broke when he had a set back. The mystery bit was a bit predictable, but I wasn't reading for that so I didn't much care. I will be reading more from this author.
