Such a lovely book, very quiet, but so much happens. In fact there was so much that we could have gotten more detail on that I'm hoping for more from Grayson and Wyatt. I think this would make an amazing series as they continue to explore other queer pictures from the past.
I appreciated so much about this book. The way the characters are presented is perfect, so often books that are about important subjects make characters cut and dried, one thing and one thing only, but I think ee ottoman does a wonderful job of presenting all their facets and showing how none of us are only one thing, but a mixture of many things. I liked that they both had their own journey through the book and that they were there to support each other with their problems. Isn't that what love is really about?
There are many story lines here, so much going on, but it all flows well together. I do wish there had been more resolution to some of the story lines, but as I said, my hope is that we will see more of Wyatt and Grayson because I do feel they have more to say.
An important book that does a fantastic job of presenting the issues that trans people face on a daily basis without ever hitting the reader over the head with it. A very sweet, loving romance that is strongly based in real life situations that many people have to deal with. Everyone should read this.
Grayson and Wyatt make an incredibly cute, though painfully awkward couple. They and their budding relationship are sweat and slow to boil. There's sex, but it's not the point. These are two people learning to love and accept each-other and themselves.
It's not a flashy plot, but it's darned effective. And some of this is affected by the importance of the mundane. They must make tea, cook dinner and wash dishes a dozen times in the course of the book. And while I felt that repetition, I also recognized that this was two people living life. Meals get made, laundry gets washed, carpets need vacuuming. People fall in love and find new purposes in life. Who needs billionaires bad boys or alien, monkey, space pirates for that?
I did think some of the book's themes were telegraphed a little too aggressively, eclipsing the story in favor of the occasionally didactic message. But more often than not it managed to find the right balance and the writing is just beautiful.
Note: I bought a copy from the publisher.
This book is an example of why I love reading in general and reading romance in particular, stories like this one are magical and they help us see and relate to each other as human beings regardless of the differences between us.
The romance between Grayson and Wyatt is slow going, unassuming, it takes time to develop, all this making it real. There is a strong attraction but both of them are shy, a bit insecure, coming to terms with their own selves and being with another person did not come easily to either of them. Add to this some serious real-life family/professional issues they were dealing with and connecting with another person the way they did was both soothing and taxing on them.
The need for human connection, for acceptance especially for marginalized people, though I really feel most people have this need and most of us feel marginalised in one way or another. I loved how understated this story was, just ordinary, yet special people, struggling to find their place in life. That desire not to be alone and to have someone by your side, someone you can share yourself with, it spoke to me so much.
My only minor quibble is that at times the messages of the story came off as too strong to the point of being didactic. I liked the easy flow of the writing, though occasionally the unfolding of the story seemed too slow, falling too much into scientific discussion of historical research rather than following the characters on their journey towards happiness/fulfillment.
I very much liked focus the author put on the everyday aspects of life - two people meet, fall in love and slowly mesh their lives together. There are awkward moments, and setbacks and both welcome and hurtful intrusions of family but ultimately it's a story of two people dealing with being trans who find the way to be a couple, to love themselves and each other.
