The whole rocks aspect of the story was very sweet and cute. I loved what Aidan did with them but more than that, I loved how much he relied on them. I was glad when he finally got help to work through his issues and then turned into the man Mal deserved. I just really wished the story was longer! Gaps of time are glossed over that I would have liked to see Aidan suffering through. Great story, though, and I'm looking forward to more from this author.
