Publisher's Summary

Varro Dacien spends his life riding toward the next adventure. Brian Christie, his best friend and touchstone, the one person who's always truly seen him, plays sidekick on these madcap adventures and subsequent trips to the hospital until he can't take it anymore. While Brian can see Varro, Varro has never caught on that he's breaking his best friend's heart.
Without Varro, Brian builds himself a life that's all about just getting by, doing his best to ignore the hole in his heart and his life. Without Brian to balance him, Varro pushes harder and takes more risks to reach that ultimate high. His job racing high-octane bikes on suicide-level courses makes it easy to get that rush...until it's no longer enough, and Varro realizes it's not the race but who's waiting at the finish line that truly matters. Now he just has to convince Brian to be there.

Greg Tremblay gives good eargasm. 'Nuff said.

Any additional comments?

Quick read about friends to lovers. No reinvention of the wheel, but entertaining nonetheless.

I actually had a hard time with this story. I just could not get passed the way Brian strung along the guy he was seeing by not being completely upfront about how he (Brian) felt for his best friend Varro.

It was borderline cruel every time the poor guy asked if he should stop trying and move on since Brian was clearly showing signs of his love for Varro, but Brian would give the poor guy a tiny piece of hope that he wasn't planning on anything romantic with Varro. I'm glad the guy told Brian exactly how he was acting (like a balancing 'maybe I will, maybe I won't) towards him and Varro.

Anyway, I couldn't enjoy the blossoming relationship of Varro and Brian because he truly did toy with that guys heart and emotions. I ended up disliking Brian completely.
