How two lovers meet in Summer
Call Me by Your Name - André Aciman

Really nice story about a 17 year old teenager Elio meeting and falling for the house guest Oliver.


Teenage boy being romantic, he is Italian, and falling for a young professor who came to live in his house, in his room, to work on his book and helped out with paper work with his father, 


They met. They ate together and playing cool at first. The first 100 pages are all about the Elio longer to get to Oliver and afraid of what he would find out with him.


The rest of the book picked up quickly on how love came through. It is beautifully written and although there are some sex scenes, they are not really that pornographic. 


It reminds us all of youth, of Summer romance, or being bold because one has not learned how to act like an adult yet. 


Really enjoyable. This type of book is usually not my cup of tea. And I have enjoyed this a lot. 


Solid 4.5 read.

Call Me by Your Name - André Aciman

Elio is 17 and has hot for the new house guest Oliver. 


The first 121 pages are still on how much he wants him. And then dreamed of him being together. 


Horny would be a word of choice. Unlike chick-romance, the expression on want and sex is quite honest and out there.


It is fortunate that this is well written, or it would read corny as hell. 


Oliver is a nice looking and they were in swim suits.

A teenager having a crash on the house guest. 


That's about it. 


The writing is good and it slow down the plot enough to go into the mind of the teenager, and details on the struggle with close proximity with the person of interest. 


Not usually my cup of tea. This is an exception.

Love Me Like This: The Morrisons - Bella Andre

Bella Andre is back with another wonderful installment in her wonderful Morrisons series. While I fell in love with her books first with the Sullivans, I have to say I fall in love with each new story Ms. Andre writes.


Let me just say I absolutely loved Justin and Taylor's story from beginning to end. The fact they both had been in love with each other from the moment they met gave me happy sighs. The fact they each waited eight years to admit their feelings to one another absolutely had me shaking my head. I was so glad Justin's sisters stepped in and got him a reservation at Taylor's new B&B when he came home for his brother's wedding.


I loved Justin and Taylor picked up being best friends again from the moment they saw each other again. I loved their friendship was a priority between them no matter else would be going on going forward. The fact they were insanely attracted to one another and wanted to spend every minute together gave me all the feels. I also loved the chemistry between Justin and Taylor was so strong. Once they finally gave into their attraction, I loved they really couldn't stay away from one another.


I will say I was surprised Taylor was so hesitant to share her big secret with Justin initially. They were so close and I just knew he would move heaven and earth to help her in any way possible. I have to say Justin handled learning about Taylor's illness just as I expected. He wanted to figure out a cure and offered to donate one of his own kidneys when he discovers she needs a transplant to save her life. I have to say this part of the story could have become way too medical if handled differently and I absolutely loved while the seriousness was never downplayed, it never took away from the romance in the story. I also loved Justin's family members being honest about concerns with the plan yet understanding in the end how it had to be. I can't say that I wouldn't be questioning my brother if he needed to do something like this for the love of his life and I loved that bit of normalcy being shown.


Love Me Like This was another wonderful story from Bella Andre. I both laughed and cried while reading this story and have to say I adore any book that makes me feel multiple emotions while reading.
