I feel like I was more excited about this one in the abstract than I actually was in terms of the book. Partly this is because I didn’t connect well with the characters, and didn’t feel super invested in the plot despite the marching band on a cruise ship setup. I did finish it, for whatever that’s worth.
Where to start?
OK. The first gay novel I read is "A Boy's Own Story" by Edmund White. I love this writer as I don't even know where to begin to find out what this busy of gay is about.
So thanks for the education.
Then somewhere along the timeline, I read "Borrowed Time" by Paul Monette and cried my eyes out.
A bit embarrassed when I read "Hold Tight" written by Christopher Bram. Quite a lot of sex scenes in this one.
This is all good and done when I was very young.
I haven't read Two Boys Kissing nor books by Larry Kramer. But I watched Normal Heart and love the movie.
Who wouldn't love the Hulk (The Avengers) kissing Neil (White Collar).
Not really into romance novels for whatever combination of gender. So, didn't read a lot of romance. But there are elements of romance in these books.
What a wonderful start to a series. Probably one of the better shifter books I’ve read, though a little heartbreaking. I will admit – I cried for a bit there.
The main character, who tells the story, is Harper “Scout” Donovan. She is an awesome character, in my opinion. She was funny and sarcastic, smart and logical, honest, strong and loving. It also seems she’s not from the girls who think they’re not pretty while they are. She’s truly weird looking, but she definitely catches the eye. I quite honestly don’t get why she doesn’t have many friends; she is plain awesome. Too bad not everyone see her as such.
Alex is the new guy in town. He was so sweet, charismatic, nice, caring and loving. Also, I mustn’t forget beautiful, hot, with a set of killer dimples. He is kind of the perfect guy, and I loved him, the way he behaved and acted around Scout. She's pretty much the center of his world, andwho doesn't want her guy to treat her as such?
Jase is Scout’s step brother, whom she has been together with since they were tiny babies, and he isinfinitely awesome. I loved the relationship between him and Scout, their banter and their devotion to one another. How they’re thought of as “twins” even though blood-wise, they have no relations. I envy their relationship.
Talley is Scout’s best friend, and she’s another very awesome character. She is the kind of person who sees the best in everyone, and who knows Scout and her family like she knows herself.
Charlie is Jase’s best friend and cousin, and...
