I love this review from J9 at The Book Vixen. Here are the best parts–the beginning and the end of the review:
If readers can look past the utterly ridiculous plot of this book then the characters are highly enjoyable and the MM romance delicious….This turned into one of my favorite MM romances lately and I even re-read a few scenes already. So long as readers don’t mind the silly plot, they should enjoy the characters and romance as I did.
“Utterly ridiculous plot!” You got that right, sister! That’s what was so fun about writing it. But then my new best friend J9 really nails what I was hoping everyone would get from the novel:
I think a lot of readers (me included) think of sexual orientation as linear where people fall on one side or the other but this novel asks readers to consider a more complicated view on sexuality where a straight man could fall in love with another straight man. I liked this exploration of sexuality because instead of being heavy it was handled with humor and heart.
This. I set out to write a fun romp with a serious message about sexual identity (for anyone who wanted to see it–many people don’t) and J9 got it. Thank you thank you thank you for your perceptive and generous review.
