WARNING: This book has not had adequate proofreading. The typos and grammatical errors are truly egregious. There are so many, it's as if it was published without anyone reading the final draft. A simple spell-check would have even taken care of a handful of the errors. It's brutal. Please, N.R. Walker, do your loyal fans a favor and have your publisher issue a corrected second edition. Please, I beg you.
Because Nathan has had previous relationships with women that didn't feel right and he has never been attracted to males either, he believes maybe he is just not a sexual being until he meets Trent. The feelings that Trent conjure up inside of him confuses Nathan. Trent on the other hand is gay and knows he is gay so he's met with mixed signals and apprehension when he tries to hit on Nathan.
I loved how N.R. Walker allowed Nathan to come into his own and Trent to be there if and when needed. I also appreciated the point where Nathan came to the a pivotal conclusion while at work and eagerly wanted to share the news with Trent but the news wasn't met with glee. This was a turning point in their new found relationship.
Learning to Feel tackles coming out, homophobia, and saving a life in a hospital if walking on two legs vs. four legs :-). Learning to Feel gets 4.5 feel good stars!
Not too much drama or conflict here, just some confusing emotions (which coming from Trent confused me as much as Nathan). I liked both of the MCs and all of the supporting characters, everybody pretty much fit in together. I thought it was interesting that rather than just saying Nathan had only been attracted to women and never men before Trent, he kind of saw himself as asexual and not being attracted to anyone of any sex. Trent was the only one that did it for him. I loved that there was an epilogue (I’m a sucker for epilogues) and loved how everything worked out. I think it would’ve been better written either in 3rd person or alternating POVs, though. Nathan’s POV didn’t give insight into what Trent thought or felt.
I would say that say that the 2 things in the story that actually kind of bothered me were things that maybe not all readers would have a problem with or be sensitive to. One was right before they came out as a couple to Nathan’s family, as Nathan got dressed, in his head he thought that “now I sounded gay”, because he was paying more attention to what he was wearing. Why couldn’t he just be concerned about looking decent? That was weird. The second was when Nathan was first introduced to Dani, she apparently went all ga-ga and googly-eyed in his presence, but rather than see it that way, he assumed she had “diminished learning capabilities” (um, okay…). Trent of course, thought that was hilarious, and the 2 of them often made fun of Dani behind her back. When Nathan mentioned that Dani had asked him out, Trent made the comment, “If I had known, I could have arranged the Special Bus for you.” What? Then “he pretended to make the dazed, diminished learning capabilities face” and they both laughed. Now anyone with good sense knows it’s not funny to joke about learning disabilities, so it bothered me when there were several jokes about the whole thing in this book. This section in particular rubbed me a bit raw.
