I enjoyed this quite a lot. Easy and fun dialogue, what felt to me like a very realistic evolution of Rob's gender identity crisis, complete with doubts and insecurities, and good secondary characters. Rob and Dylan made a great couple. It had some darker moments, but for a serious topic, this was a surprisingly bright story.
Also, I've lived a few years in Vancouver and have a soft spot for stories set in that city. This story had a definite sense of place, was familiar with the character of the various neighborhoods, and true to the culture of the city.
I read this without reading the first of the series, Apple Polisher, and it was fine. Will be getting Apple Polisher now though.
