I greatly enjoyed Jesse's brash personality. I also suffer from not thinking before speaking and not caring if that bothers people. I was a little leery of Evan after his behavior when he first met Brandon, but I didn't think that could be real because I could feel the connection between he and Jesse. I was surprised by how un-angsty I thought this book was compared to all of the things I've heard and read about this book. I thought it a little anti-climactic because by both MCs behavior I knew the break-up was fake and was just waiting for them to get the balls to talk to each other and get back together. The book was a little long considering not much really happened other than Jesse and Evan spending every waking moment together before Conquest's tour, but I still greatly enjoyed the story, and I will be continuing with the series.
