Publisher's Summary

Nothing in this world is permanent. Friends, lovers, even family can all disappear in the blink of an eye. Without these anchors, it's all too easy to find oneself drifting.
Jason Grant doesn't have much, aside from a beat-up old guitar and knack for getting kicked out of foster homes. His latest placement is set to be just another in a long line of failures. Then he meets Caesar Hubbard, a handsome guy who lives down the hall. For the first time in his life, Jason wants to stay, which means learning to be part of a family, and not letting his feelings - or his actions - ruin his first real chance of falling in love.
Something Like Spring introduces a new character to the Seasons story, one with a troubled past and an equally turbulent future. Jason must traverse a winding road fraught with emotional conflicts and tough decisions - a road that might just lead to a certain couple in Austin.

After Winter must come Spring...

What did you love best about Something Like Spring?

Ben and Tim! Lol, I loved the plot of the story and that it introduced us to a completely new story in the series as well as expanded on Ben and Tim's story.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Something Like Spring?

Ryan shooting Tim. At first, I felt like it was unnecessary to reintroduce Ryan into the series. But, I understood that he was a catalyst for Jason realizing his feelings for Ben and Tim. I thought that Cesar was going to be the Paramedic that came to the scene to take Tim to the hospital, but that wasn't the case.


What about Kevin R. Free’s performance did you like?

Kevin has been consistent throughout the series.


If you could rename Something Like Spring, what would you call it?

I would've named this book Something Like Home. Yea, I know it's cliche but, Jason was always sort of in search of a family and home and he finally found that towards the end.


Any additional comments?

Throughout Spring, there was a feeling that the characters in this book sort of paralleling the characters of Summer. For instance, Jason was our Ben, Cesar was our Tim, and William was our Jace. I've always been a fan of Tim (he's my favorite character) but I did not like Cesar one bit from the beginning. Vice versa, i wasn't that much of a fan of Jace, but I loved William, especially for Jason. I feel that Jay wanted to give all of the TeamJace fans there Ben/Jace HEA even if it wasn't really them. I really enjoyed this book. It was a great way to end the series, even though I feel that there could be more to explore in Ben and Tim's new family.

Closure . . .sort of

Just amazing. So with this book we come full circle with Tim and Ben and am introduced to Jason Grant and others who will show up on future books. Jason is a wonderful young man that starts off as a jaded, but remarkably laid back, foster case for Michelle (Jace's sister). They forge a special bond as she seeks a family for him. My only issue with Jason is he just doesn't seem to know his worth and keeps just "putting up" with stuff instead of demanding what he wants. Although primarily about Jason's journey and search for love, we are treated with all our old friends from previous books. Except for Victor, thank god; I'm sorry I'm still really mad at him. But I digress. Not all the old friends are good ones and there is some drama. This book has trademark Jay Bell wonderful writing and storytelling; yes it is possible to love more than one person. But this one is a lot lighter than the previous books. Don't get me wrong, tears do flow, especially in the last 20% of the book; but they are happy tears. I so glad that Kevin R Free continues to narrate this series. He does his usual amazing job. All and all, it is Something Like Wonderful.
