This isn't my usual kind of book, but a few months ago I read the first of this series after the publisher sent it to me and I really liked the first story, so I decided to go ahead and give this one a chance too.
Kieran moves to a small town with his mom, worried about how they would treat the new guy, especially since the new guy is gay. Drew comes from a very religious family - and he's scared and confused about the secret feelings he's been having. When they meet, everything changes.
A love story between two young men, one who has come to grips with who he is, the other who hasn't. On one side happiness, on the other side, religion that leas to mixed emotions, guilt and fear. And, as always, there are people that hate and in this small town, things are no different.
DB is a really great writer, very eloquent and really makes you feel what the main characters are feeling. I was a little worried about this one, but he does an amazing job and it's a very clean romance, which are the kind of romances I prefer. The hatred they had to take from other kids in their school is really a sad - and sometimes scary - thing. In the end, things work out for them, though not like I had expected.
Great job, DB. :)
Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
