Epic fail.That is until Noah Walters offers him shelter for the night and a reluctant cross-country ride.

Soon, a quiet but undeniable chemistry sparks.Something doesn't add up, though. As the miles accumulate and time runs out, Noah must face the most difficult choice of his life.

Honestly Tamika!!! You should have never had reservations about Annabeth Albert. Sure you didn’t like Treble Maker, it just wasn’t for you! This one though was definitely for me! I hope that book two continues on with them! Please, I want to see Noah & Adrian with babies and dogs living harmoniously together and eating healthy using multiple crock pots!

I really like the writing style! I loved at the beginning my silly self thought Ulysses was a person instead of a dog. LOL. Don’t worry, I went back to re-read it again. I liked that these two were the complete opposite in every way. I didn’t know if I was going to like Noah. The whole older guy, virgin closeted man gets done alot. Some of it’s good, some of it’s bit bad, and some of it has heavily religious tones that I internally cringe. With these guys I always want shake them, and say “God won’t judge you though”! Why can’t they just see that their parents are not GOD!!!! ARGH, that’s another rant that I don’t have time for. Noah surprised me, with all his misgivings about his sexuality and religion he took his time. I was happy with the pacing that A.A. decided to do when Noah had his “Come to Jesus moment”!

Adrian, Adrian, Adrian! I really liked him. He definitely had his own moments of truth that I appreciated. Adrian had to figure out what he wanted. This was a really good road trip, and both guys were so hot together. The last 25% was so freaking good. I didn’t want it to end at all. I think the author did a marvelous job with this story. I can’t wait for book 2.
