I liked Ryan and John (I hated it when he was called Johnny) I just didn't love them. I was talking earlier how one perceives GFY contemporary stories and what makes it believable or not. And while I accepted it in the end, there were some small peeves that decreased the pleasure of reading about this pair.
So, amidst people committing suicide, bodies being discovered, dealing with a runaway teenager and figuring out how to be in a relationship with a man, I kind of lost sight of the men themselves. In the sense I felt a rather distant connection to them instead of empathising. I liked the story overall, and all elements come together rather nicely. The only thing missing was an infatuation with it to make it a 5 star read.
