Dante has always felt like he had to force it when it came to girls, but he's never felt comfortable calling himself gay. He's never fully accepted that part of himself, despite a schoolboy crush on another boy in high school. It was a crush that had gone nowhere. When his roommate and best friend, Greg, dares him to attend an LGBTQ+ group on campus after losing a bet, everything changes.
Because through this group, he meets Sven, or Seven as he's called on campus. Sven catches his interest easily, but he's still in denial of his own sexuality. He is further confused when he meets a beautiful girl on campus, Serena. He tries to go on dates with her, despite the fact that she doesn't really speak. Instead they communicate via texts and passing notes. He tries to force himself to like Serena, but there's still the issue of Sven in the background - moreso his growing attraction as he slowly gets to know the other boy.
Don't worry about a love triangle though. Esch does not drag that part out, instead focusing on the way Dante and Sven discover themselves and one another. They both have a lot of insecurities regarding their sexuality. They both have to face a lot of homophobia - both internal and external - before they can fully be together.
This is a New Adult book, and while there are some definitely steamy scenes, they are few and far between. Each one feels incredibly important to the plot and to the growing relationship between Sven and Dante. There is a good amount of angst, but nothing that feels too heavy at any point. And while there's no HEA guaranteed, the book ends at a beautiful point, one that is full of hope for the characters and the readers.
If you want a beautiful first love story, one filled with the insecurity and tension of finding ones self, I would highly recommend taking a peek at this one.
Sven likes Dante and goes out of his way to talk to him. He lives with his grandfather, but currently he is fighting cancer and has been in the hospital for ages. This leaves Sven alone in the home and at work, and the neighborhood bullies attack Sven on an almost daily basis. He is always bloodied and wounded since it is at least 3 against 1 when the bully him.
Eventually Dante begins to peel back the layers of Sven. Dante realizes that he is not straight and is attracted to Sven and wants to see where things go.
Can Dante save Sven from the bullies? Can Dante help Sven with his grandfather? Can the two of the realize what they need is each other?
Some parts are sad to read. To see how people treat others unlike them is eye opening
Lucky Seven, written by E.L. Esch, was really good. It was a very quick, easy book to read. Dante and Sven are total opposites, but it really works. As they get to know each other, they also discover things about themselves.
Dante has dated girls, but when he loses a drinking game, has to go to a LGBTQ meeting. He meets the 'bad boy' Sven, who has more to his story than meets the eye. They catch each other's eye and want to find out more about each other.
This book was well written and the characters were very likable from beginning to end. I found them to be very relatable characters. I really liked them together and how they were able to discover themselves along the way.
