But it was EXACTLY what I needed. I loved these flawed and lovable characters.
Thank you for this novel. I wish I had words to express.
We have two dudes, Jamie and Seth who are tackling an assignment that means they have to handcuffed to each other for five days. Polar opposites, one closeted, one out and proud, one going through mental health issues and one trying to hide an injury because he’s on a baseball scholarship…. What could possibly go wrong? Let’s talk about….
I’ll try to be as spoiler free as I can.. But, ya’ll know me, I sometimes get a little ranty so just skip to the next review, or hear me out; I said I’d try!
Ok so, in a class that they take together, to be exempt from taking the final exam, they both agree to participate in this assignment. It was difficult at first because maybe one or the other was already attracted to the other and one of them was in the closet and the other wasn’t interested in being with anyone in the closet. And who could blame him, that’d be awful. It was also tricky because they were very different people, and Jamie was a little bit of a jerk in the beginning. You know the homophobe types are like that a lot of the times because of the PHOBE part. He was scared of anyone finding out, especially his dad or his team; which I understood but, sometimes his remarks and the things he done to prove he was hetero, were over the line. I didn’t like that. I didn’t like that for Seth and honestly, it made me just not like Jamie very much.
This story is told in both boys’, POV, so we get to see everything from both sides, which I liked. It doesn’t take long for things to take a turn, things heat up and steamy things happen… so of course, Jamies going to ruin it…I knew he would and I was waiting for it! and he did, epically, at a dance with his “girlfriend”, especially…. I really felt for Seth; he just kept getting the crap end. It just seemed like the poor kid couldn’t win. He was constantly getting hurt or getting his feelings hurt. I just wanted to hug him. I’d have totally been his BFF.
They both had really good, supportive friends though, I liked that aspect. Especially for Jamie, they all new or figured it out and it wasn’t a problem. They didn’t sugar coat it when he hurt Seth like he did and they didn’t hesitate to tell him when he was being an A hole. I liked that too because that’s who you know who your true friends are. The ones who call you on your crap.
I was also glad to see Donny not get away with his bigoted bullying. I mean, he did for a while and I don’t think that just finding him slinging such hateful words was punishment enough, I would have liked to have seen him get expelled or… ya know, beat up or something really terrible so I could have felt vindicated or just a little bit like we got some karmatic justice. But, alas… it did not happen so I’ll just have to give it my own little twist, and pretend it happened.
Other than that, it wasn’t a bad story, this is the first book I’ve read by this author and I will check out her others. Like I said, though, I really liked Seth and I’m glad it ended happily for him; alls well that ends will, I reckon… I just, dunno, I just didn’t really ever get over my aversion to Jamie.
I was given a copy of this book by its publisher with the promise of an honest and unbiased review.
3.5 stars for me on this one.
Jamie is the campus jock that is deeply in the closet. Seth is the out of proud, but quirky classmate. Jamie has been hiding safely behind his closet and admiring Seth from afar. But a sociology assignment forced them to be handcuff to each other for a week. It will be an absolutely torture for both of them due to Jamie's attraction and Seth's quirk that tends to drive people crazy.
I find the idea of them being force together interesting. They never get along and pissed about every single thing. But is hard for me to imagine some of the logistic challenge when one was handcuffed, although the author did try to explain it as detailed as possible. Another thing that I find it hard to believe is how honest they are in completing the assignment without cheating. Imagine that they only remove the handcuff when they have to change clothes, but not when they have to take bath. I would have absolutely cheat at some point, especially when they are in the privacy of their own room.
Some of Jamie's action frustrated me to no end. I know he is in the closet, but does he need came off as a total homophobic jerk to prove that he is hetero? The many occasion when he threw Seth under the bus whenever some of his a$$h0le teammate make a comment make me angry at Jamie and sorry for Seth. As for Seth, he's adorable and cute and I love him. But I think he is being too easy on Jamie. Whenever Jamie being remotely nice to him, he turned into a puddle of goo. I would like for Seth to give Jamie a taste of his own medicine.
Overall, I find that both Jamie and Seth did had a lot of growth as a pair of immature college kids. I do like them nonetheless. After getting to know about Jamie's past, I understand why he acted the way he is and towards the end he does redeem himself in my eyes. There are a few unresolved issue regarding Jamie's brothers that hopefully will be mention in the future books.
