I've been dancing around this book for more then four years. Ally Blue might have been one of the first m/m authors I'd read. There was not a deep development into any of these characters but there was an entertaining story about a lost, abused rent-boy who is rescued by a big, sweet, very closeted interior mason. Our other players were a bunch of compassionate friends, a few bad guys and really easy ending. I know I wish it had been a more flushed out story but I think this is just Blue's style.
