loved every moment of this book, would highly recommend it to anyone interested in gay romance
Any additional comments?
I love this book so much. It may be a soppy love story that I'm not usually a fan of (I could not stand Call Me By Your Name, for example) but this book was somehow different. It was well written, well read, really sweet and one emotional rollercoaster.
I got so addicted to this book I listened to it in one evening, staying up till 3 in the morning just to finish it. I can’t emphasise enough how much I relate to this book. I’ve even got the same name, height, physique, sexuality and age as Ben for god’s sake. But anyway, I read it in the midst of a breakup where I was in a very bad place. This book gave me honestly a completely new outlook on life and love.
Could not recommend it enough. Especially to the gay teenagers out there like me :)
At first, I thought this was the typical teenage coming of age story. It definitely started out that way. The first half is tender and sweet, young love at in all it's glory. In the second half, the book grows up, just like the characters. Life gets in the way, there's tragedy, loss and reward. Can you love more than one person at a time? Do first love's last? I ended up enjoying the book more than I thought I would. So, stick with it. Its rewarding in the end.

From the book cover I assumed that this was a ‘coming out’ or ‘coming of age’ story akin to the many tales of teenage angst already described in a variety of other books but I was pleasantly surprised. Within this book a story of desire, lust, love, friendship, realization, acceptance, delusion, and growth set to describe the life of Ben, our protagonist. Ben’s own inner growth as well as his relationships with Allison, Tim, and Jace make this tale one that must not be missed. I actually loved this story…an entire gambit of emotional responses were elicited by the words of the author, Jay Bell. Kevin Frees’ narration brought the characters to life in such a way that one’s imagination was able to be transported to the world with which they exist. I do not wish to give too much away, but the dynamic of the three principal relationships—Ben & Allison; Ben & Tim; and Ben & Jace—and how they became intertwined makes this a very enjoyable journey. A MUST!!!
