Gabe is gay and unapologetic about his sexuality. He refuses to live his life in the shadows, but that doesn't mean he isn't harboring secrets.
Trevor is his parents' miracle child and he doesn't want to hurt them. Coming out, admitting he's in love with Gabe, could ruin everything.
Heading off to college was supposed to finally free them to be together, but nothing is as easy as it seems. Can they find a way to navigate this new world, living and loving openly?

I liked this story for the most part. I liked that it was about two young men who were finding their way not only in their new semi freedom of college life but in life in general. Both Trevor and Gabe had their whiney moments were I wanted to kill them but for the most part of the story I loved their reactions to things. The thing with Trevor's mom was a bit over the top for me but I have seen moms act like her.
This was not one of my favorite stories by Sloan but it was worth the time to read.
Author BioSloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl's life. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn't yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass.
When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren't enrolled, you can't attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after.
Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It's a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?
Now, Sloan is a tattooed mom with a mohawk and two kids. She's been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she's been known to lose herself with a good book and forget she has somewhere to be.
