In 1996, Jake Stewart is starting his third year at the University of New Hampshire. Even as a successful business major, he is absolutely miserable. Not only is Jake pursuing a field he hates when he’d rather study art, he is utterly terrified of what will happen if his father finds out he’s gay. When he finally gets up the courage to move into the creative arts dorm on campus, his new roommate, Danny, is openly gay—and there’s no denying the attraction between them.
Danny Sullivan has been out since high school, and he appears comfortable with his sexuality. But something happened in Danny’s past—something that gives him nightmares he refuses to talk about. Unknown to Jake, the way he mistreated his friend, Tom Langois, when Tom came out to him in high school, is mild compared to the way someone very much like Jake treated Danny.
It may be too late to fix the mess Jake made with Tom, but if Jake wants to be with Danny, he’s going to have to fix the mess made by another closeted jock he’s never even met.

*** 2.5 Stars ***I think Jamie Fessenden's Screwups was a case of "everybody loved it but me."The book started out strong and Fessenden's writing in those first few pages had an undeniable emotional pull. I could feel this weight in Jake's character; it was this enormous fear warring with an intense...
How sweet was this?! Rhetorical question. The answer: VERY! And funny in many ways, as you can see from the quotes in my several status updates. I loved the slow relationship development between Danny and Jake. I loved the psychological component and self-esteem issues that Danny was suffering from ...
