Black diamond fall

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was an ok book. Luc Flanders is a college student living a double life. He’s a total “bro” with his college friends and girlfriend, but he’s secretly in love with an older man whom he sneaks off to see as often as possible. After a night of playing hockey with friends, Luc disappears. The police are torn between deciding if Luc ran off on his own and is simply laying low to avoid friends and family, or if he met with foul play. The police suspect several people of having knowledge of Luc’s whereabouts and condition, including Luc’s college friends and girlfriend, two juice-head twins selling performance enhancers, and his older lover.

The book was ok, although some plot lines, including the redneck twins, don’t seem to have much point. The writing is good, but the story just didn’t really interest me and I found myself skim reading the last half of the book.
