Most insufferable beautiful person Will's ever met From his ankle monitor to his dull smile Lennox appears irredeemable But when Will’s father falls seriously ill Will discovers that there is to Lennox than meets the ey. Ugh I wanted to like this book so much The idea was good great even I love the idea of a bad boy and a good boy getting together but this just wasn t told rightThe problem for me was that the middle portion lasted too long Will was a judgmental asshole to Lennox so other than being the only other gay individual in the school I don t see what he was so obsessed with Lennox was also an asshole to Will so again I don t see the connection If they had had some deep meaningful moments together I would totally buy their chemistry but beyond sex and basic physical attraction there was nothing there Lennox was so complex and had so many things going on in his life that his whole story line was a missed opportunity The things you could do with his story are endless but we are left with a ton of answers When does he get his monitor off What happens with his family Where does their relationship go from there What about the jackasses and Lucy The book just ends without ever answering these uestionsWhich brings me to my next grievance the end The climax and the ending happen within the final 2 chapters This big event happens and then they go back to Will s house and go to sleep The end Literally it says The End That is not an ending that is a HFN or even a slight cliffhanger We needed another chapter and a prologue to even make it passable as an ending The majority of the middle area could have been cut down significantly to provide a better climax and ending because all it was was the same complaints and sexual innuendos over and over and over again Another issue I had was with the racism Lennox is biracial and suffers from a lot of racism within the town and school especially because of the ankle monitor However if you look at the cover his hand is obviously white It s pretty misleading Once again though it was a missed opportunity We kept getting told about racist looks and comments but that s as far as it went If you re going to have it be such a constant mention in the book do something with it Don t just let it be said and not have something of meaning come from itAnother reviewer mentioned that this started off as Glee fanfic and I can totally see it This had Kurt Hummel and his dad written all over it In fact before I found that out I thought the same thing I m actually happy I know that because I thought for sure it was an unoriginal copy and paste type of relationship and it was but it was for a reason I can say though I didn t like how okay Will s parents seemed with knowing seeing and hearing about his sexcapades I m all about having open dialogue about things but details are a little much This author has a degree in creative writing which you can tell because it was actually really well written and is ultimately why I gave this two stars instead of one star The problem came from the story itself Unfortunately I don t recommend it because it s simply not finished If it had been it really would have been a fantastic story ARC provided by NetGalley in exchance for an honest review

Go Your Own Way Go Your Own Way #1

Will Osborne couldn’t wait to put the roller coaster ride of his public education behind him Having suffered bullying and harassment since grade school he planned a senior year that would be simple and uiet before going. I seem to be in the minority here but I really struggled through this one First of all you should know that this book is all about the drama and the angst And it gets REALLY angsty If you aren t prepared for an exhausting read then look away I can deal with some heavy drama and angst but this pushed my limits However that wasn t my issue with the story My main issue with this story is something we need to talk about as MM readers and that is the overly sexually aggressive MC Lennox was relentless Even when Will clearly wasn t interested even when it was FULLY inappropriate like talking about explicitly banging Will in front of teachers classmates and parents Lennox would NOT STOP I can see Lennox using his rudeness and vulgarity as a defense mechanism which clearly it was meant to be in the early parts of the story but well past the 60% mark he was still making non stop comments and physically touching Will even when he said no Now here is my sticking point If this was a MF book would we still be rooting for this couple If there was a guy who was calling our female MC a cock whore or talking about how well she could suck him off to a virgin no less would we still think it was okay Why is it okay here I didn t think it was and even though the Will was sometimes turned on by the attention that doesn t make it okay People can be turned on and uncomfortable and still deserve proper respect I m no prude and I m very much in favor of dirty talk but it was just wrong place wrong time ALL THE TIME The push and pull between these characters also tested my limits They were back and forth hot and cold and I was just over it by 75% or so I was expecting some relief but the drama was constant Also we need to touch upon the racial stuff in this book Lennox is biracial and some of the stuff that he just brushed off that the characters said and did to him was not okay A lot of hair touching and a WHOLE lot of really gross name calling by people in this story Now I m not sure if the author meant to highlight racism in certain parts of the country and I m not a person of color but I felt icky and anxious about many of the exchanges Just putting that out there The book gets two stars from me because some of the details of Lennox s life really touched me and I think the story has some moving and powerful elements but I struggled with it all the same Even though the ending is abrupt and a HFN I don t think I ll continue with the series Copy provided in exchange for an honest review

Away to college and starting fresh But when a reform school transfer student struts into his first class Will realizes that the thrill ride has only just begunLennox McAvoy is an avalanche He's crude flirtatious and the. 45 starsFor a debut novel this was fantastic I loved reading it from the beginning to the end and the author earned himself a new fan girl me This is a character driven novel that beautifully shows us the journey of two young men bad boy Lennox McAvoy and the innocent Will Osborne It was a pleasure to go along with these two fantastic characters through their first true love experience while they take their first baby steps towards romance This book is written from both characters point of view and I really liked that especially since we got to see Lennox in a different way from that which he showed the rest of the world The first half of the book might seem a bit slow paced and Lennox might get on the reader s nerves but please do not give up This book grown in the second half especially towards the end It becomes intense and while heartbreaking it gives you hope This book is the perfect example to that saying Don t judge a book by its cover and it shows us the struggles that people who are different from the norm are going through If you re not a fan of YA books because sex usually doesn t happen much in them give this one a chance They boys do have sex in every way you can think so your pervy side should be satisfied Lennox broke my heart Literally as a mother I cried for him and my heart bled for him because no young person should live the way he does His situation is completely heartbreaking and I was keeping my fingers crossed the entire time that someone would step in and show this darling boy that there s still hope for the humanityWill was a romantic at heart so totally different from Lennox who truly believed there s no such thing as love Will was a virgin while Lennox was uite experienced Will wanted romance and love while Lennox wanted to get in his pants Lennox s crude language and obnoxious personality was bothersome but not in the way you d think I wasn t offended by it but rather frustrated that people always had so little faith in him he decided to give them a reason to dislike him since they would anywaysTheir relationship started out as enemies progressed to friendship and from there it flowed to love easily Will saw Lennox in a way other people weren t likely to see him and believed in him when nobody else would I loved them together their chemistry was great and the night when Will loses his virginity to Lennox will stay with me forever I was just so heartbroken with the way it started and I was so happy with the way it ended Lennox really did get the best birthday present ever even if it wasn t planned Will s complete trust and utter surrenderThe secondary characters were so different from each other they were at opposite ends of the spectrum We have the bullies the drunks the animals who are nothing than a piss poor excuse for human beings I really hated them with all my heart Karen and Ben Will s parents were amazing I loved the relationship they had with Will and I thought Karen was an amazing person than a stepmother than a friend she s that person that would make anyone lucky to have on their sideThe ending felt a bit rushed to me a tentative HFN instead of the HEA I was looking forward to I hope we get a seuel in the future because I d love to see if Will and Lennox make it together as a couple and how their lives are 10 years for now I d love to see how Will s plans for the future turned out and what role Lennox plays in it I need Recommended
