That was, dare I say, amazing!! :-P I just loved the layers of Martin (even though the reasons for Martin's "dating" style were pretty sad) and the strength of Owen, that confidence and ease within one's skin is an absolute turn on. What a perfect partnership -- fully complimenting and completing eachother.
And I tell you what, Aleks and Amy are a killer partnership too -- what a writing duo! Aleks in the last 3 months has given me 3 of my favourite characters in Vadim, Silvio and now Malcolm. I will definitely be rereading this story again and again!! And I must give a shout out for the cover art -- what a perfect representation of the 2 guys.
