I had heard so much about this book, and when I saw it on sale at the bookstore, I couldn't pass the chance to snatch it up for myself. I finally got around to picking it up, and I'm so glad I did. I was hooked by this book right away.

I've never read a book before where one of the main characters is autistic. It adds a whole new and interesting level to the story, and really highlights the issues that people on the spectrum deal with in their everyday lives. Stella was a fascinating character and I really liked her.

Michael was a great character too, and whilst I hope that this book doesn't romanticise the escorting profession, I still liked the fact that he had a job such as he did, but was doing it for the specific reasons that he was. I mean, I guess that happens in real life too, but its easier to believe that people lead those kinds of lifestyles because they need money for drugs or gambling. Michael is completely different to that, and I really liked his personality underneath the exterior that he shows.

There were some interesting secondary characters in this book too. Some that I liked, and others that I didn't. I really loved watching Stella and Michael get to know each other, and thought that their story was interesting and it definitely had me captured from the start.

I definitely want to continue this series, and see where their lives take them.
