At times, when reading this, I seriously thought there should be a way to turn your tear ducts off - it's just so annoying when you're trying to read and tears just keep making your sight blurry... Other than the tear-jerking though, I quite enjoyed reading this. I was rather annoyed at Derrick sometimes, but I could also kind of understand him. Ginsberg, on the other hand, I just loved - especially his in-your-face and honest attitude (both about his trans status and in general). The whole story was very immersive - the cooking parts mouth-watering, the feelings of the MCs infectious, and the sex scenes (though there weren't many) seriously hot. Overall, a strong 3,5 stars.
