So glad that Bethany picked Frat House Troopers for her “new to me author” review! Honestly, I get it when people say that the title of the book didn’t “grab” them–it was a working title that I picked because I finished the book while watching that wonderfully cheesy movie “Starship Troopers” on late-night cable.
Okay, so I don’t make the best choices under the influence of Casper van Dien’s backside.
But back to the review. I love that Bethany gets what I was doing in Frat House Troopers–capturing the story of two people who fall in love first, and think about gender second.
Realizing that the person who knows you better than anyone else in the world, your fears, your weaknesses, your strengths is the one person you want to love for the rest of your life. And then realizing that just because that person is the member of the same sex doesn’t make a difference because they love you just as much as you love them. They are the only person you see, the only face you want to see when you go to sleep and the only one you want to see when you wake. Only for you.
Just so, Bethany. Thanks for a perceptive and lovely review.
