A path chosen, a journey taken, a decision made. Jacob Riley, an actor with possession charges hanging over his head and an attitude that the world owes him a living, is facing such a moment.It is only with the help of others can he ever hope to find his way. Could Mac's and its enigmatic boss, Ethan Myers, be the ones to give Jacob his defining moment?Jacob Riley, star of the time traveling TV series End Game, is a typical Hollywood former child star with issues. He has already had prison time and at the age of 26 has been arrested again. He manages to scrape through and avoid more jail time by being placed onto an expedited drugs program. Jacob works his time as a general handyman at an education centre in the run down area of L.A.. A part of the city that is in the middle of regeneration. It is a short sharp shock for the boy-man who had an easy life.Ethan Myers is the owner and manager of `Mac's', providing teaching and learning to local low income families. He lost his long term partner to cancer three years ago. His moment in time was to decide not to die with his life partner and instead bury every penny he had and every part of his education into `Mac's'. He agrees to take on Jacob as `Mac's' desperately needs the money, but it isn't a decision he would have made under normal conditions.Jacob hates his jailor Ethan; Ethan loses his cool whenever Jacob aims for an easy ride. He has no respect for the lack of substance in his `guest'.Sparks fly when attraction becomes something they can't fight and their relationship grows against a background of disenfranchised street gang members, arson, the Oscars, and despite their own prejudices.… (lisätietoja)

This started off so well, I loved the set up - bad boy Jacob Riley, all sex, drugs and out of control behavior, meets too good Ethan and both of their lives change. Then it began to move into noble failure category, as the writing bogged down and it all became too obvious, everything spelt out, no subtlety or charm. But sadly, by the end it was wall banger territory for me with a totally contrived misunderstanding, made worse by foolish behavior and then melodrama. So while this had good moments, it didn't work for me. It was not well written, the sentences just didn't sing; and then all the secondary characters were so good, with everyone just being too sweet and understanding, and then added to that, I hated the ending - so this won't be a reread for me.
