Well done, great character study. Fantastic urban setting. I loved that the MCs were teachers, idols and role models, but don't epitomize those who are too thin or rich. Ironically I was also reading Dry, which complimented the addiction and recovery story. I know this is a series and the next installment will visit a new paring (Raymond and David). I look forward to their story, but I hope we will get to revisit Michael and Nunzio a few a few years out. Even though these two are life long friends, we left them at a very tender point in both their relationship and in Michael's recovery.
