I like romance and boys loving boys in my books.
You can also find me on my main blog.
My biggest complaint about this book is that it was too short. Too short to allow for organic character development, too short to make me believe in the romance, and too short for Emory to develop the backbone he exhibited in the end.
I liked the characters, and I liked the message that things aren't what they seem, and that it's okay to pursue your dreams.
Unfortunately, while this could have been a four or more star read, there wasn't enough time to get into the story, connect with the characters, before it was over.
The author did a great job setting the scene and circumstances, in as few words as possible. Both Emory and Bryce make some assumptions that are proven wrong, and both learn that first impressions and rumors aren't what makes a man.
There were some great moments in this novella that left me wanting for more, and I hope that the next book by this author takes a bit more time developing the characters and thus the relationship between them.
Why three stars after all? Because as short as it was, I did enjoy reading it. And I think so will you.
If you like shorts that are hot and also send a message, this book is for you.
