GOODREADS SUMMARY :-
There’s something different about Noah…
Zack Parker met his best friend Noah at his lake cabin when they were only five years old. He realized he felt more than friendship for him by the time they were in junior high school. One fateful night when they were eighteen Zack couldn’t take it anymore. Fueled by love and lust and need, he finally kissed Noah like he’d wanted to for years…and Noah kissed him back, returning every drop of Zack’s passion.
The next morning, Noah ended their friendship for what Zack believed was forever.
Now twenty-one, Zack resents being dragged by his guilt-tripping mother every summer back to the lake cabin where every leaf and rock and turn in the road reminds him of Noah and the love he felt for him three long years before. He hates being reminded of what he lost and more than anything he wants his best friend back.
But this year things are different.
Noah has returned, apologetic and more gorgeous than ever. Amazingly, he seems to want Zack as much as Zack wants him. He’s sweet and attentive, sexy enough to make Zack’s thighs quiver, but there’s something not quite right…
What secret is Noah hiding?
This book was a bit confusing when it comes to rating it. I would actually like to give this a 2 1/2 stars because it has both good and bad elements.
what I liked about this book was
1) the way it was written. It was easy and expressive. I was actually able to feel the emotions the characters felt. The whole reunion part of Noah and Zack was adorable.
2) I felt connected to the characters because of the way they were portrayed and described. there introductory note was very nicely built.
3) The story went from slow read to gripping by the end. I was totally into it.
What I disliked was
1) The amount of intimacy portrayed was too much to read and handle for someone like me. I don’t like exaggerated elements in any form. And over intimacy has lead me to question whether to recommend it or not. These elements could have been eliminated.
2)One thing that I thought was left loose was the family element. The family was not even taken into consideration while converting into a vampire. This was a drawback and could have been considered building it.
3) And lastly , the story was not plot driven. Not much was happening and the ending was sudden with an end not thought of. Abrupt!
All in all it was a fine read.
