What did I think? Well, I'm a bit perplexed. I read it in one sitting, so it must be good. And I could follow Brian's stand-offish behavior to protect himself. What I didn't get was the turn of 180 with Varro. Somehow there was no chemistry between both of them that let me believe Varro suddenly deep in love with Brian. Somehow something's missing in that story, just can't put my finger on it. So, in the end I stick to 3 stars. It could have been much better.
