I liked both leads equally, though on the face of it, Jamie perhaps was the one calling the shots and being the one to instigate his and Seth's first kiss, it kind of made him the 'tease', especially when he then backed off and seemed to want to have his cake and eat it all. Yes, I'm talking in clichés, but it's exactly what on the face of it might have been going on...until the author gave unexpected depth to Jamie, which took him from slightly selfish to hero in my book.
Of course, that couldn't last, or it'd have robbed the tale, and readers, of some excellent angst, some excellent peer interaction (reminding me of American YA movies such as American Pie and Loser, and making me want to go and hit the playlist whilst reading this book. And yes, I did!). I loved Seth's maturity, his quirks and his love for his grandmother, and I loved how she was there at the point in the tale where he felt he had to be true to himself and make a decision.
The tale ends with the leads there for each other, out together, openly in a happy relationship, but I couldn't help but wonder what happened to Jamie's older brother Ty, and his younger brother still living at home with their domineering father, and who was the reason that Jamie hadn't outed himself. I wanted more and I hope that the author will consider writing more in this series.
Off now to read The Eight Night, which sounds amazing.

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.

I loved this story. Great concept and a lot of fun. I remember when I was a little girl and my sister and I would tie ourselves together and try and move...Read more
