"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Eammon is nice and a great friend. His efforts to help Rafe adjust and embrace his newfound independence really came through for me. Their desire for each other was hot and I am always up for dirty talk in my books. Yum.
However, I am never into a story with a prominent and obvious rebound storyline. Especially in this story, I think Rafe needed something different, maybe even deserved more. I felt his naivete, inherent sweetness and romanticism would have benefited from a partner who was not still in the shadow of a recent bad breakup. I felt like Rafe got Eammon's full attention only when Nathan wasn't there stealing the spotlight. When he got it, Eammon was fantastic.
I get it, Eammon is a great friend even to people who have lied, purposely hurt him and attempted to sabotage the good things in his life, but I also think Rafe deserved the same kind of time and care from Eammon. I wasn't convinced that wouldn't continue in the long term.
I also never warmed up to the flat mates, Louisa and Heath and I was unsympathetic to their plight.
3 stars because I think the story was well told and the characters were fleshed out. There is also hot dirty talk (always yes please). People who enjoy the virgin, college, roommate, friends type of story line will probably enjoy this story. Plus, Rafe really grows throughout the story and I loved that aspect. And there is a fairly satisfying HEA with a little epilogue, which helped redeem the story for me.
Rafe is on an adventure. He’s off to England for a semester of study. He wants to soak up all things British. Because you know, their accents. And if there is a secondary plan, Operation: Slut, to get him laid so much the better. And the longer he's away from his parents, the more he realizes how much of his life they control.
Eamonn wants to keep his distance from the Yank that is sharing the flat. He’s just one of the four living there. And the last flat mate broke his heart. But Eamonn also has a caring streak, he’s drawn to help Rafe adjust to life away from his parents.
The author did an amazing job of capturing both Rafe and all his Americanism while also keeping Eamonn and the flat mates very British. There was no problem reading the American vs. English language, or understanding those things that are particular to the British.
It was a wonderful journey to read as Rafe and Eamonn come to realize they have feeling for each other and to watch those feeling grow.
As characters they are well written, feel real people. The secondary characters, Heath and Louisa added so much to the story. Are they lovers or are they just friends. The snark and banter between them is at time a hoot and then there are those places in the story where you feel so bad for them. You root for them to work it all out.
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I truly enjoyed it. I will certainly look for other stories to read.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Eamonn was a different story with his frustrating reluctance to fully reciprocate what Rafe was willing to give him. His lackluster interest in the things he knew he would be good at for himself was disappointing. These are both young men learning what it's like to be themselves and to pine for someone they're not sure will be fully committed to them despite yearning desperately for it to happen. They need to figure out how to be solid individuals before they can be ideal partners and I think the ending suggested that that's what they were working on so I was pretty satisfied with that. Overall, there was a ton of steam, angst, young love, impulsiveness, more than a few Midori Sours, and some Atlantic-spanning commitment. A thoroughly enjoyable read. 3.5 stars.
