This is such an uncomfortable book! It covers some pretty dark and taboo elements. So it is a true testament to the writing ability of GR Lyons, that I had to keep reading it anyway. This is part one of a trilogy, and in this first installment we meet Kacey Reynolds, who is pretty much joy incarnate. He has recently transitioned and is embracing his new future. Kacey has zero self-preservation skills. He is so determined to be involved sexually with his dream guy(s) that it seems like nothing will keep him from throwing himself off of that cliff. He also is taking classes for a second college degree, where he meets Hunter Fitz, his philosophy professor. Hunter definitely has demons in his past. When those demons become part of his present is when this book gets hard to read. I wanted him to make different choices so many times!!! I found myself wanting to yell at a fictional character in a book. The interactions between Hunter and just about everybody in this book are hard to read.
Lyons includes so many allusions to the next book. It seems as if worlds are going to collide in book two! And as hard as I know it will be to read it, I feel compelled to find out what is going to happen next.
