A Five Boroughs Story

Caleb Stone was raised on the Upper East Side, where wealth and lineage reign and "alternative lifestyles" are hidden. It took him years to come out to his family, but he's still stuck in the stranglehold of their expectations. Caleb knows he has to build his confidence and shake things up, but he doesn't know how. until Oliver Buckley enters the picture.

Oli is everything Caleb isn't-risk-taking, provocative, and fiercely independent. Disowned by his family, Oli has made his own way in the world and is beholden to no one. After a chance encounter on New Year's Eve, Caleb is smitten.

As Caleb sheds the insecurities that have held him back for years, he makes bold steps toward changing his career and escaping years of sexual repression. But for Caleb to take full control of his life, he has to be brave enough to confront his feelings and trust Oli with his heart.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not great. While I found this to be my least favourite of the Five Boroughs stories, I still enjoyed reading. To be fair, I feel as though Sunset Park set me up to dislike Caleb and Oli, and that feeling never really went away.
