What can I say about this book? At the beginning, I was reading and I kept telling myself "I'm really, really loving this" and I really did... at first. The beginning was really engaging and promising, but after some time, it just got really boring for me. I started skimming through it for the second half of the book, because I just couldn't get into it anymore. I didn't really like the way Alan treated Jem and I didn't warm up to any of the characters, so that didn't help either. Too bad though, I really wanted to like this one, since it's the first historical m/m I read.
