North Star: Book One In their small-town high school, Hugo and Kevin became closeted lovers who kept their secret even from parents. Hugo didn’t want to disappoint his terminally ill father, and Kevin’s controlling father would never tolerate a bisexual son. When college took them in different directions, they promised to reunite, but that didn’t happen for seventeen years. By the time they meet again, Hugo has become an out-and-proud actor and director who occasionally performs in drag—a secret that has cost him in past relationships. Kevin, still closeted, has followed his father’s path and now, in the shadow of divorce, is striving to be a better father to his own children. When Hugo and Kevin meet by chance at a party, the spark of attraction reignites, as does their genuine friendship. Rekindling a romance may mean Hugo must compromise the openness he values, but Kevin will need a patient partner as he adapts to living outside the closet. With such different lifestyles, the odds seem stacked against them, and Hugo fears that if his secret comes to light, it may drive Kevin away completely.

2.5 Spark by Posy Roberts
I don't quite know how to rate this one. The narration was fine, the story OK, but I found it a bit.... bland & forgettable somehow. It was just something to read, and it pushed absolutely no buttons. Not any of my pet peeves, not any emotional highs or lows, no annoyances, nothing. Just.... vanilla...

I feel divided with this book. There were parts I adored here, but also there were parts I was really bored. It’s a slow burn book, in the sense of writing. Everything was done with no rush, very quietly. It’s a love story born from friendship, a story of the first love in youth, and of separation a...

4.5 Book Review – Spark, by Posy Roberts
This book made me happy in ways I can’t really explain. I won't even try. You may have seen me gushing over the book Private Display of Affection, by Winter Sandberg the other day—well, this is that same book, but for adults. It is also powered by including an interwoven future storyline with the ...
