Publisher's Summary

When his college biochemistry class turns out to be much more difficult than star quarterback Freddie Samuelson imagined, his lab partner, Kurt Maxwell, agrees to help. They're very different: a rich kid athlete and a hardworking openly gay scholarship student. But Kurt slips past Freddie's defenses, and little by little-despite Freddie ignoring his own sexuality in the past - Freddie realizes he wants to get to know Kurt, especially when Kurt helps him through more challenges than their science class. But it isn't long before rumors begin to fly, and the obstacles Freddie will face may block him from both the future he planned on and the future he didn't know he wanted.

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.

Audio

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.
