Truman Durant has two painful secrets. One keeps him in the closet and the other hangs inside his closet. Letting either out seems like the equivalent of suicide to him. He didn't know just how badly he needed Stasi Manolis until he found himself in the pushy Greek's sights. Would giving up his secrets and maybe falling in love really be so bad?

Two opposites falling in love is always attractive, but still, I haven't read something this good in a while.
Truman is a closet case, and one who takes it to the extreme. He has a scandal in his past, where his private life was exposed to the world, and everyone abandoned him, including his family. For someone as young as him, it took a while to bounce back, and while he might no longer be living in his truck and is able to function around others with little issue, what the incident left behind is the deep fear of others knowing his secrets.
It would be a little ordinary now to limit his secret just to being gay, after all his, panic is tremendous and at times it will really break your heart. His other secret really rubbed my kink and after finding that out, it wasn't really a matter of if I'm-going-to-like-the-books but just how much.
Stasi is proud, Greek and gay, living in a gay fraternity. He is easy going, positive and smitten when it comes to the pretty jock Truman. He pushes even when he thinks he shouldn't and chases after Truman even when Truman insists on running. Because the desire is there, in the way Truman responds, looks and moans, but Stasi needs to help him overcome his fear. It all takes a twist for the better, once Stasi stumbles, or stalks as it were, on Truman's secrets and the two make the best of it.
More than anything else, this book made me feel good. I love contemporary, but add a kink, a great relationship, some humor and amazing characters, and you can't avoid a winner. This was one of those books, that made me tear up on occasion, laugh out loud more than once and read it all in one go while not once wanting it to end.
It's been some time since I gave a five star rating but this book definitely deserved it. Truman and Stasi are not characters you would want to miss.
