Love because Erastes makes me feel the emotions of Rafe, the main characters, and the joy of Ambrose, his lover.
Hate cause he describes the real world, where the true love is never simple, and where an happily ever after is not so common.
You want the perfect hero, dark, tortured but always right? Then don't read Standish. Rafe is everything but perfect. Is a man led by the passion, and sometimes the passion guide him to the wrong path. And Ambrose, the other hero, is sometimes fragile, sometimes strong, but also human. And like every human he want love.
Ambrose and Rafe see each other like Ganymede and Zeus. Ganymede, the guy that with his beauty who stole the role of God's cupbearer to Ebe. Ganymede served ambrosia to Zeus. So also the name of Ambrose recall this legend. He is the object and nourishment of the love of Rafe.
In a fairy world Rafe must save Ambrose from every trouble and perilious... in the real world we have the tragedy, but also the love that forgive anything.
When I'm happy I want the laugh, when I'm sad I want to cry... Standish stay between

So thanks to Erastes for this book, I will put it in my bookshelf, but think I will take it often...Continua
