I m stuck between 3 and 4 stars for this one I enjoyed the basic elements of the story and the settings in Thailand and Chicago were described well enough to make you think the author actually has a working knowledge of both places Both of the main characters were likeable and believeable not pedestal worthy idealized super heroes But I definitely agree that the book could have used some editing tightening up the story and descriptions and cutting out some of the lengthier sections of Emory s internal dialogue The first person narrative was interesting for a while but eventually I tired of Emory wrestling with the same issues over and over I would have appreciated knowing Nate s thoughts I was never completely clear WHY he liked Emory so much In other reviews I ve complained of gratuitous sex scenes and of skimming to get to where the story actually moves ahead I didn t think I d ever ask for MORE in a story but I would have appreciated ANY in this book Not for a need to be titillated but to flesh out the character of Emory and his realization that he is actually gay The guy was exclusively dating women engaged and left at the altar and within say five days had his first sexual experience with another man Here is where a larger portion of the story any portion should have been for me at least Emory grappling with this terrifying and new experience of another guy s junk And of how Nate handled the situation Instead one moment they are making the momentous decision to go to one or the other s room and the next Emory is missing Nate because Nate has flown home That is a hell of a lot to leave out of the story of a man s life changing realization that he is gay Sure Emory struggles with telling his friends and family about this but he doesn t really have any internal struggle with hey I m sleeping with a guy now It s just accepted nothing to see here move along shrug So I liked the story and I liked the characters I just think a little bit of polishing would turn it into a story I REALLY liked Twisted places Both of the main characters were likeable and believeable not The Exploration of the Male Anatomy pedestal worthy idealized super heroes But I definitely agree that the book could have used some editing tightening up the story and descriptions and cutting out some of the lengthier sections of Emory s internal dialogue The first Transforming Multilateral Diplomacy: The Inside Story of the Sustainable Development Goals person narrative was interesting for a while but eventually I tired of Emory wrestling with the same issues over and over I would have appreciated knowing Nate s thoughts I was never completely clear WHY he liked Emory so much In other reviews I ve complained of gratuitous sex scenes and of skimming to get to where the story actually moves ahead I didn t think I d ever ask for MORE in a story but I would have appreciated ANY in this book Not for a need to be titillated but to flesh out the character of Emory and his realization that he is actually gay The guy was exclusively dating women engaged and left at the altar and within say five days had his first sexual experience with another man Here is where a larger All Night Long (Nannies, portion of the story any The Freeze-Frame Revolution polishing would turn it into a story I REALLY liked
