"Evokes the 1970s and falling truly in love - Great read. A real page turner. I loved the genuine love story between the two young men. Adored the descriptions of their beach house, I want to live there!! The clothes, the film industry of the period. Very real. Wistful ending too ..... you’ll need to read it to find out how it ends."

"Los Angeles in the 1970s - 1974 was an EXCITING time in Los Angeles, California, especially for a young person, where I lived then AND now. Adding the movie-entertainment-artistic business and characters REALLY made this story “my thing.” I’m impressed by author Howard Rayner’s descriptive writing. When I had time to read a few pages, I couldn’t stop reading at ONLY a few pages. There are a lot of action, humorous and heartfelt scenes in this story. Plus, I sincerely like, and care for, these characters. I wished them well as I read. I enjoyed trying to predict what would happen next. Often, I was wrong.
I recommend this book now and also as a summer read. My advice?: Don’t wait until summer." H. Tanchuck via Amazon.com
