Didn't much care for Alex. I found him rather manipulative in his interactions with Nate. And when he finds out Nate hasn't told him every detail of very personal and deeply painful events in his past, Alex has a near meltdown, even though at this point he had not yet acknowledged any kind of deeper feelings for Nate. I mean, should the guy have just vomited every detail of his past on the 2nd date or what?
Now this little bit of drama came very late in the book and covered just a few pages of the whole story. The rest was just Alex and Nate hanging out like friends and spending a lot of time in the bedroom - not quite enough to really be interesting. So - meh.
