I didn't like this as much as the first one. Since Tim was a Marine and Jeremy wasn't, they didn't spend nearly as much page time together on page as Lucas and Noah did. It felt like I missed out on the getting to know each other and the falling in love part of the story. However, I did like the characters, and the sex was hot, although I did find myself missing the sexual tension this time around.These guys pretty much got right down to it. For such a long book, it didn't feel like we got to see much, at least not what I wanted to see- for instance, Jeremy's transition.
