Avid reader, part time gamer. I read and review books for other readers, not for authors. I review mostly M/M books, so if that doesn't float your boat, well, there are other boats in the sea, other reviewers in this great blogosphere!
This was really long, and REALLY slow burn. It gradually builds to a Sterek moment, but not until the 9th ending, the 4th quarter, the end of the game. This story was more about growing up, moving on, dealing with a bunch of really bad stuff, and coming out stronger, and then...ending on a freaking cliffhanger, after more than 200k words!
