I wanted to really liked this. Honestly, I did. I love contemporary NA and this sounded like it should be good. But it didn't really work for me as well as I would have liked.
One of the biggest things for me was Brendan having a boyfriend for the biggest part of the story. I might not have been as bothered by it if we'd seen more of Brendan and Nico. But they got together at the very end, which was frustrating.
