Masked Destiny is the story of Skye, a high school athlete determined to be the Alpha male. Skye's obsessed with his own body, his Abercrombie & Fitch wardrobe, and keeping those around him in their place.
Try as he might, he's unable to ignore the world around him, or the plight of gay boys who cross his path. Too frightened of what others might think, Skye fails to intervene when he could have saved a boy with a single word. The resulting tragedy, wise words from a mysterious blond boy, and a unique opportunity combine to push Skye toward his destiny.
Oliver is young, a bit pudgy, and interested in little more than his books and possibly his first kiss. As he slowly gains courage, he seeks out the friendship of Clay, his dream boy, in hopes they will become more than friends.
Oliver is sought out in turn by Ken, who warns him Clay is not at all what he seems, but Ken, too, has his secrets. Oliver must choose between the two and discovers danger, a link to boys murdered in the recent past, and the answers to secrets he'd never dreamed.

This may be the worst reading I have listened to, worse even than the almost infamous Boy Toy for Christmas. Dreary and slow I came close to making my first return after 20 mins or so but stuck it to the end. The story has a little interest but the writing is laboured and tries too hard with its philosophy and maybe not hard enough with its credibility and dialogue.
