I've soft spot for a bad boy.
Naah. Not really.
I just couldn't resist Adam Bertoni's charm; commitment-phobic, insensitive bastard, recovered addict, run of bad luck, sex-magnet, undead as he was. So, really - I could sympathize with how Peter must have gone through.
This story had me twisting and squirming emotionally! In a way, I could just hit Adam upside the head with how callously he treated Peter, or how slutty he could be when the urge struck. Likewise, Peter couldn't seem to resist welcoming Adam back after each transgression. Every. Single. Time. But these two were just so hot together (yep, that's me squeeing...) and somehow they complimented each other professionally. And those moments when they hurt each other (intentionally or not)?? I could feel the phantom corkscrew-pain in my chest and I just wanted to hug Adam and comfort him!
I do wonder though, what actually made Peter changed his mind the last time, other than "the way Adam looked at him" story that Ally fed him. That right THERE was when I yell: nooo, why end the story there?? Nooo. More pleeease!!!
Relationship-wise aside, the plot gripped me from start to finish (read this in one sitting). Adam might not be the can-do-no-wrong superhero in this story, but his adventures were very entertaining to follow!
