Lighthearted feel for a book with some heavy issues. Ben is a great guy escaping small town USA and enjoying the perks of living in the big city and Gay Mecca, San Francisco. Loved his partying and then regret that he wasn't studying more for his exams. His caring nature and sense of humor, not to mention he's an adorable ginger.Adrian on the other hand came across as a bit of a prat. Emotionally disassociated and squandering his life--For WHAT?!They work well together and their mutual friend Jason is both a hoot and terrifying in his joie de vivre. A lot of teasing with this one, but when the guys finally figure it out they are hot, Hot, HOT!
