How do you do it? How do you write about these amazing characters? How can you make me fall in love with them so quickly?
Ok, those were more questions :)
I just really really loved this book, I read Focus on Me first and I knew that I had to read this one as well because I the unique way in which they are written blew my mind. It feels effortless they way she writes them, like they were just there waiting to have their story told and in that, help people to be honest. These characters feel real to me, I wanted to go on the Internet and search Lan’s blog and make sure they were alright. I also searched the places they visited and I have expected to see them in the background. When I’m that invested in a book is when I know that it was an amazing, fabulous, lovely, and earth moving book.
In this book we meet Landry and Justin as they go on a road trip to spread Justin’s father’s ashes in his favorite places around the country or the places he expected to take Justin one day, so jump into Sally, his dad RV and they start their journey.
Justin and Landry have been best friends for a long time, Landry is openly gay and Justin know he is in love with Landry but can’t bring himself to admit it out loud, so he plays straight in front of the world and his best friend, but being so close to Landry everyday makes it really hard for Justin to keep his feelings a secret.
They have a best friends to lovers kind of story but with so much more, unknowingly they are both struggling with things in their lives, Justin is afraid to come out entirely, he has his life already planned out by his mother and he has never stood his ground with her, and Landry has a secret that’s been slowly consuming him.
It is lovely so see them change during their journey it feels like they leave more than just ashes in every stop they make, to me it felt like they were leaving layers behind, things that were threatening their mental health, especially at the end.
This was truly and amazing story and I can’t wait to read more books by Megan Erickson.
I adore road trips in books so I was predestined to enjoy this. I love the close quarters that Justin and Landry were forced into and the intimacy of spending so much down time together. As friends, I thought they were really fun together. Readers get see the years of friendship in their casual conversations as well as a few well-timed flashbacks. It is always fun to read about friends who are so different from one another and they are a great example with Justin as the supposedly straight athlete with a conservative politician mother and Landry as the tattooed, artistic former foster child who needs an emotional anchor.
I really fell in love with these guys when romance started to get in the way. Landry has had a crush on Justin for awhile, but has resigned himself to settling for friendship only while Justin is trying to deal with his feelings and his fear of coming out. I was a little worried that the author would drag out the BIG SECRET for too long, but she did not. Much of the book focuses on these two coming to terms with themselves as a couple and figuring out their future.
If I had to pick an issue with Trust the Focus, I would say that it would be Justin's inconsistency. I fully get that he is afraid how his news will be taken by everyone he cares about, but, once he revealed the truth to Landry, I found myself irritated by how wishy-washy he was. He also has a huge stupid moment which requires major groveling on his part.
Despite my occasional irritations with Justin, I really had a good time reading this. I laughed and cried at various times which always signals that my emotions are invested in the story. I liked Megan Erickson's writing style and her commitment to these characters. I am looking forward to trying out the next book in the series soon.
