It's a sweet and moderately steamy, slow burn romance with my favorite things: shy glances and tentative touches. The characters are diverse: Jay is probably Latino and Sonny is a black man.
It's written in third person past tense and dual POV. There wasn't much dialogue in this story, at least at the beginning. But it's interesting how a writing style works for a story, but it doesn't work for another. Here, the lack of dialogue didn't bother me much. Probably because this style fit the MC's personalities.
"You feel everything so much. More than most. You don't show it, but I see it, Jay-bird."
Both of them are uncertain and a bit awkward and Jay is also a bit aloof and shy. The secondary characters are well-developed. I loved Pops!!
The writing is good, but it's need a bit more tightening. I encountered a few sentences here and there, that felt out of place, just thrown in there without transition. It's not perfect, but other than a few repetitions, and minor grammatical errors I didn't catch anything major that would've thrown me off.
There was a bigger time jump in the middle of the story. But NOT like 2 months later... and we were completely missing what happened in that time... No.
It was just not a detailed description. More like a summary of the 2 months. That, I didn't like.
Overall I enjoyed it, even teared up a bit, cause it was beautiful. Feeelz! :)
3.5 stars and I probably will check out other works by the author.
Both MCs didn't have it easy as kids, especially Jay, and it was good to see them comforting each other. The chemistry between Jay and Sonny was unmistakable. They were super sweet together.
I'd like to say I liked Sonny and Jay from the beginning, but it is not true, as much as I loved Jay and his big heart, I didn't like Sonny at first. At all. He was assuming things about Jay without really trying to know him. (Why did he think that quiet people are not inteligent???) On the other hand, it felt good to see him realizing that Jay is not only beautiful, talented but also super smart and inteligent!
I.M. Flippy did an amazing job creating MCs, they felt real. It was a little heartbreaking to see Jay fighting with himself, being unable to choose what's more important for him and as the author said "feeling too much".
I absolutely loved it not only as a love story but also as a book about new beginnings. It made me realize that "the feel of ground moving" might be the best thing ever.
It isn’t long before their mutual attraction has them stumbling towards one another, I say stumbling because they’re both dealing with their own insecurities and preconceived notions about their places in the world, and I love this - I love their quirks, their awkward dance and the heat that builds between them. As cliche as it may sound, it was very hard to put this book down.
Humorous, sensual, and very thoughtful writing. I look forward to I.M. Flippy’s next novel.
Being taken in by an aunt saved another boy.
When they meet as adults they create a whole new life with each other...until a major decision threatens to tear them apart forever.
A lovely story of family and young love.
