I have a soft spot in my heart for Mike who appeared in the previous two stories as someone with dark past. I was happy that Mike finally got his own happy ending -- in form of Lucas Embry Spring, an acquaintance from old his school few years back before Mike's life turned to hell.
I thought Lucas was sweet and patient; he was so good for Mike. The story was lovely ... because of Mike's ordeal it also went in a slow-burn pace, which I appreciated. I was rooting all the way for Mike to be able to grasp his happiness with Lucas and felt satisfied when he did.
