Publisher's Summary

The struggle is real.
Nick Stahlnecker is 18 and not ready to grow up yet. He has a summer job, a case of existential panic, and a hopeless crush on the unattainable Jai Hazenbrook. Except how do you know that your coworker's unattainable unless you ask to blow him in the porta-potty?
That's probably not what dad meant when he said Nick should act more like an adult.
Twenty-five-year-old Jai is back in his hometown of Franklin, Ohio, just long enough to earn the money to get the hell out again. His long-term goal of seeing more of the world is worth the short-term pain of living in his mother's basement, but only barely.
Meeting Nick doesn't fit in with Jai's plans at all, but, as Jai soon learns, you don't have to travel halfway around the world to have the adventure of a lifetime.
This is not a summer romance. This is a summer friendship-with-benefits. It's got pizza with disgusting toppings, Netflix and chill, and accidental exhibitionism. That's all. There are no feelings here. None. Shut up.

Pretty much the whole thing.

Jai was lovey, I thought Nick's performance of him was fab.

Yes, I did. I listened all day, then put headphones on while I was cooking dinner, then listened in the car when I went out.

Any additional comments?

I'd heard such good things about this book and it really didn't disappoint, it's one I'll listen to again for sure.

Can I just say that Nick J Russo has done a truly amazing job of narrating one of my fave reads of 2016?? So much so that this has gone onto my superb audio narration bookshelf....and there will be repeat listens too. Brilliant!!

Book Review

Aah, the precious!! [sorry, had to get that in there, hehe] Well, we've got so many pop culture references in this story, including the trip at the end which is definitely on my bucket list!! The Matrix, Star Wars, Harry Potter, LOTR...just perfect. 5 stars from me for this light, fluffy and adorable read from Lisa. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!! LOVED Nick's bro Devon, and as for Jai, well he has his head screwed on properly, and I'm sure will look after Nick as best he can. They made a really cute couple.
