Clete is a sweet 19 year old with an abusive boyfriend. They go from place to place when Vern, the boyfriend, hooks for money. Then Vern hits him and leaves him at the station. Here he meets sexy Tal and his life starts to change for the good.
This was half a book. We meet Clete and Tal. Very well written, great characters then they see each other and sparks fly, the possibilities are huge. That’s when the book complete falls apart. Tal saves Clete from an aggressive man who wants his body. Then these two strangers kiss and decide to go backpacking together. Seriously?! What happened to Vern? How does Tal deal with his conservative parents? Does Clete finish school? Why is Tal going backpacking with a complete stranger? No answers. Tal asks Clete to backpack. He says yes and the story ends.
There was so much potential in this author but the plot left much to be desired.
