Dark Side of the Moon

I liked it. It didn’t exactly follow the usual short story type fling, even though it did. Am I making sense? Hell, no; I am too tired.It took a long while for the protagonist to actually meet up with the guy destined to be his, and they did have sex almost right away, and it ended just when the narrator began to allow himself to give the two of them a real chance. So it kind of felt as though the first half was a wandering/flight plot,...
