Good narration, story not as good as first book
In book one, we met Josh and Brendan, a coach and a professor/genius who fall in love. Josh is here as the coach of Freddie, the star quarterback, and acts as a counselor for Freddie as he navigates his decision to come out.
Kurt is out and proud in his new college but he’s already been the victim of bullying so he’s a bit gun shy of jocks, especially closeted jocks. So when Freddie tries to strike up more than just a tutoring relationship – it’s understandable that Kurt is a bit reluctant to take a risk.
Freddie, on the other hand, is captivated by Kurt and thinks he might be the reason it’d be worth facing his family and friends with his new “truth”.
I loved book one so much! Brendan and Josh were really sweet and adorable and I was hoping for something like that here.
Instead we get Freddie who has trouble in school, has trouble making decisions and has self-esteem issues when it comes to his family. I’m not sure what he sees in Kurt or vice versa and it was hard rooting for them as a couple.
Kurt is a bit of a bossy bosserton who waffles and gives in pretty easily in the face of only a very minor bit of pushing on Freddie’s part. Besides his physical appeal I didn’t see what he saw in Freddie nor did Freddie give any good reasons for Kurt to trust him.
Freddie’s actions didn’t feel authentic and I wasn’t really feeling any chemistry between him and Kurt so this wasn’t a romance that let me believe they’d still be together in the long run.
3 of 5 stars
Nick J Russo is a great narrator and really seemed to hit Freddie’s football persona on the head! I LOVED Freddie’s roommate – the drawl Nick gives him is pretty funny and it actually added a bit of much needed color to this somewhat drab romance.
I definitely enjoyed listening to this more than reading it as Nick was able to draw me in to the characters with his well-done narration.
