Music is the only form of communication Connor Owens controls. No matter how badly he wishes to fit in, friendly banter and casual conversations have never been his thing. College is yet another social universe he has no clue how to navigate—until he meets Jared, a football player with chestnut eyes and a cocky grin that holds the power to shatter his self-imposed prison.
Jared's attention opens Connor up to a new realm of emotional and physical intimacy. But as Connor's self-confidence grows, so does his fear that everything will fall apart. Because in this socially stratified world, how long can a relationship between an introverted violinist and a closeted football player really last?
I enjoyed this New Adult romance recommend by AJ Truman on the Big Gay Fiction Podcast.
I love a socially awkward character and we get that here.
The writing is lovely as is the character development. Both Connor and Jared are a big messes but they are young and do what young people do.
The cast is great. I will for sure look for more books by this author.
