I started off really loving this book but then about two thirds of the way through something happened, and I'm still not sure what it was, but suddenly I was no longer enjoying it half as much.
The main characters are likeable in the beginning and the secondary characters add depth to the story but it became very repetitive and, dare I say, boring.
I got fed up of hearing how shy Zach is and what a whore Marcus is.
I read over and over again about how scared Nick was and I got tired of Julian pushing and pushing him to come out and then getting angry when he expressed concern over it.
Julian said over and over again that he doesn't want to force Nick into doing anything he's not comfortable with (i.e. coming out) but then does exactly that.
I found at about 80% that I no longer really cared how Nick got on at work or if Julian's new design idea worked out.
I pretty much skimmed the last 10%. I just couldn't bring myself to care.
All of a sudden Julian and Nick were talking to each other like teenage girls. It all got overly sappy and tooth achingly sweet.
Several people seemingly had personality transplants during the course of this book. Nick went from being so far in the closet he was probably in Narnia to being out and proud. While I'm all for this, it happened far to fast to be believable.
Devon went from being a complete di*k throughout the book to owning up to stealing Julian's ideas and apologising due to the nature of Julian's idea. Again this was too far fetched to be anything like believable.
Just when you think that's it, Jensen turns up with his own completely unbelievable apology.

Totally enjoyed reading this book. Recommend reading.
I love the idea of getting a second chance at something and that is what this book is about. It talks about bigotry and prejudice, PTSD, survivor's guilt and so much more. This is an emotionally packed story that will sucker-punch you over and over and you won't be able to stop turning the pages!
There are so many things to say with this book but I don't want to give anything away so please excuse me for the vague references. There are many, many notable quotes in this book but I think my favourite may be "We've been given a second chance. Some people never even get a first."
This story shows just how much of a difference you can make if you take the chance and time to look beyond the surface of people. You may be surprised by what you find. So many characters that I loved and I can't wait for the next in this series.
The storyline is gripping, the sex is hot, the romance is sensual and the admiration I felt for these characters, all of the characters, is a testament to their believability! Absolutely stunning read, packed with emotions, HIGHLY recommended.

I loved the cast of friends at the heart of this series and look forward to their individual books, This is Julian's story and I was a little unsure about him at first with his detached manner until we learnt of his back story and my heart broke for his teen self. Even though he seems to be on the verge of greatness in the world of men's design Julian is a little lost and when things go pear shaped he is left questioning everything in his life.
Nick was a lovely character but I was a little unsure on some of the elements of him, as a firefighter that had survived a great tragedy I felt he would have been grabbing life by the horns a little more but then I know nothing about life as a firefighter in New York. Nick is very much in the closet due to his career and what he thinks his family's expectations of him are, and I loved how he handled the situations when he decides to stand by the truth of who he is.
A fling as young teenagers left its mark on both men so when life brings them back together they are both tentative but soon find a reason to make changes in their lives for themselves and each other. I loved the side story each character had going on within their careers that helped strengthen their relationship. I found Julian a little pushy at times and wanted him to back off but I guess Nick needed the push.
I'm so happy to see Zach's story is next in the series and can't wait to learn more about Marcus too.
