But when Daniel shows up at his door, Alex meets the first bump in the road — which turns out to be more like a boulder — in his way.
Daniel is a gorgeous, warm, affectionate man, one who will force Alex to deal with something that happened years ago, something that made him take the safe route through life.
With Daniel, he finally realizes that he’d shut down his true self, he begins the most difficult part of his journey — the one that could take him to Daniel and to happiness.

Review: I have read a couple of books by Erin before and was quite pleased by them. This particular story comes off so damn real and I could actually see it happens. Although I would like Danny more, I do feel bad for what Alex went through.
Alex and his friends needed a roommate, but he had not expected Daniel. Alex definitely had an attitude to the poor guy. He comes off as a mean homophobe but he has secrets that made him the way he was. The problem was every time he saw Daniel he was turned the hell on.
Daniel was a damn good teacher who needed a new place to live. So when he was offered a room, he jumped at the chance. He was definitely thinking of changing his mind. The one man who turned him on, acted like he was the bad guy. Things needed to change, that is for sure.
I was quite pleased with the story. Although it does come off a bit dry to me. It needed something to spice it up a bit. Normally a good story can captivate me, but this particular book did not keep my attention like it should have. So that was the only true part that disappointed me. Other than that it was a damn good story with wonderful characters.
It was a change of pace for me. I look forward to reading more by this author.
