There are not enough crying gifs on the internet to express my feelings about this book.
God damn. I cried reading this a lot. This book was special. Very special. I found the story to be unique and extremely compelling.
Sometimes with books that involve a lot of trauma I find them to be a bit overly dramatic and I find myself sad/crying for silly reasons... this book had none of those silly reasons. I honest to god cried like 5 times while reading this book.
I laughed a lot as well. And damn, were the sex scenes hot or what. Seriously, this book has everything in it I love. Unique story, interesting characters, daring plot, NO melodrama, and heartbreaking moments. This book was also GFY (gay for you) which normally I'm fine with, but in this case it was perfect and actually made sense. It wasn't like one day some dude notices his bro-friend is hot and wants to gobble his junk. The love interest and attraction and the GFY situation made complete and total sense.
If you're going to spend money on something this month year, it should probably be this book. I'd pay 3x what I did to read this book, it was that good for me. Seriously I think this book is like $5. For $5 you can't buy something this good.
I just finished the epilogue and I cried pretty grossly at this part: When Riley said dads and Cam told Austin they should get married, in the most unromantic way and Austin told him to reach into his back pocket and there were already rings.
LIKE, BREAK MY HEART INTO A THOUSAND PIECES WHY DON'T YOU, CARA DEE?
Totally worth it though. Totally worth it. I actually feel a responsibility to say thank you for this. It's one of the most enjoyable reads I've had this year and I don't think I'll be forgetting this book anytime soon.
