Oct 06, Laura Warby rated it really liked it. This book was well written, and engaging. I felt a great deal of empathy for the main characters, and felt like the story flowed well and easily. Jan 11, Mel added it. I actually don't really know how to rate this book. First, I have to say though that I was totally drawn into the book and couldn't put it down, and it was really fun to read it.
There are enough things that were not so good. I got the book as a freebie and so I am not complaining. Anyway, here's what I liked and what I didn't That worked good for me. I like 1st person narrating. It makes me feel closer to the charac I actually don't really know how to rate this book. It makes me feel closer to the characters. For both of them it's their first relationship and I thought that was quite well done.
They seem very young-adulty, judging from their behaviour and living with their parents, but they are in college or working.
Well, it didn't bother me much. Actually, it underlined the vibe of the book. Everything felt a bit like being in a bubble. Of course, most of the book plays in a long holiday, apart from any daily life routines. I thought they were well written, discovering, intimate and full of feeling.
Or mainly, I don't like that they don't solve the situation to my liking. Just moving out, not going to the police, is not enough for me. Does his mother know? What's the further plan? I read in one of the reviews for the next book that there is some closure concerning this part, though. There were so, so many typos and grammatical bugs.
I am not a native speaker and if I am put off by it, it must be real, real bad. Actually, that is why I am not sure about spending money on the next two books in the series. DNF - The really annoying thing about this book is that there's a good story here. I'm not entirely convinced that Logan isn't the male-version of the "damsel in distress" trope. Then Felix is disgusted with himself for having gay feelings, and a day later is totally okay with the gay to the point he's making out in front of his friends? Um, no. It doesn't really work that fast.
Despite oneself definition is - even though one does not want to. How to use despite oneself in a sentence. I enjoyed our walk but had to sit down despite myself because my knee started bothering me. Ginu Kamani Junglee Girl Sahil chuckled, despite himself. Despite himself, despite his sullenness, the forces compulsive opened his jaws and set all his throat vibrating in.
William is nice, but he's written so OTT he comes across like a 8-yr old girl. The book actually describes him once as acting like a little girl. Brian is the cardboard cutout villain. Andy is his cardboard cutout sidekick. Jerry so far as the most potential to be interesting but that's only because we know so little about him. The cliches are piling up and I have a feeling it's just going to get worse from here. Jul 29, Corinne rated it really liked it Shelves: lgbt-lit , romance-mm.
Downloaded as a freebie. Sweet, yet heart-wrenching at times, this tells the story of Logan and Felix. Felix is a good friend of Brian, a little older than Logan.
Brian is abusive to his brother Logan. While on a holiday that Logan is forced to take with them, Felix and Logan find themselves falling for one another. Once Felix learns of Brian's abusive nature towards Logan, everyone else begins to realize Brian's true colors. There are some editing and style issues - including long paragraphs tha Downloaded as a freebie.
There are some editing and style issues - including long paragraphs that go on for ages and a lack of indentation on my kindle. It's also 1st person narrative where the POV switches each chapter, and it's not always between the two main characters. It can get a little bit confusing, and not everyone seemed to have their own voice. I loved William! Great spastic character.
Jerry left me curious and Brian was a bit flat. I wish there was more exploration into his character. Logan and Felix were both enjoyable characters, and their struggles pulled at my heartstrings. Overall, it was a good read that I really enjoyed. Dec 23, EmeArsh rated it liked it. No, seriously, was the mother blind?
