    I am calling it Time of death at 74%.Well Crap that was a disappointment Oh it was sooo bad and that cover should be illegal.I gave up at Mike s POV, which was so unnecessary and out of place, i guess the author wanted to create a villain before the end of the book and decided to throw this one in at the last minuteMike knew how to cover his tracks It served that man right, anyway, for marrying a black woman Mixed couples are disgusting Mike thought.Mike wasn t racist No He simply thou I am calling it Time of death at 74%.Well Crap that was a disappointment Oh it was sooo bad and that cover should be illegal.I gave up at Mike s POV, which was so unnecessary and out of place, i guess the author wanted to create a villain before the end of the book and decided to throw this one in at the last minuteMike knew how to cover his tracks It served that man right, anyway, for marrying a black woman Mixed couples are disgusting Mike thought.Mike wasn t racist No He simply thought that blacks should be segregated, like in the olden days And intermarrying with them was unnecessary I knew this would not end well at some point i was confused if i was reading about boys in high school or college Cole annoyed the hell out of me, then Ellis was just Meh Multiple POV s got me confused, especially Ellis s mum which sounded so weird The narrative became so preachy and annoying.Cole and Ellis had no chemistry at all IMHO and the I love you blurted after the 1s...

    Absolutely likable.The acknowledgment that we are all prejudiced, but most fail to recognize it is one of my favorite parts of this story Cole s epiphany in that regard was great and so on point I really enjoyed seeing religious characters that were not intolerant and raging A holes I feel like Kelly nailed these two concepts so well, especially since I see so little of it demonstrated in other MM romance stories Kelly played well with stereotypes and exposed that there isbeneath peopl Absolutely likable.The acknowledgment that we are all prejudiced, but most fail to recognize it is one of my favorite parts of this story Cole s epiphany in that regard was great and so on point I really enjoyed seeing religious characters that were not intolerant and raging A holes I feel like Kelly nailed these two concepts so well, especially since I see so little of it demonst...

    After much anticipation, dread and excitement all rolled into one, I am happy to say I enjoyed my time with Cole, Ellis, Rob and Russell My two absolute favourites were Cole and Russell Cole for his neurotic, cynical and cautious attitude and Russell well heh he was a fool who s antics made me laugh along with poor suffering Rob who tries to deal Secretly I think he loves the buffoon, a romance would be delightful, what chaos Ellis was a sweetie, and very shy unless you were part of his grou After much anticipation, dread and excitement all rolle...

    Humour is a funny thing, sorry pun not intended lol , what makes some roll around holding their sides laughing leaves others wondering what they are missing, while others simply smile and think that was funny I love snark and sarcastic humour, but it doesn t make me laugh out loud,likely I will quietly smile or chuckle and think good one lol That s how I reacted to Cole He had some great lines but they were not necessarily laugh out loud ones I found I sympathised with Cole a lot, a Humour is a funny thing, sorry pun not intended lol , what makes some roll around holding their sides laughing leaves others wondering what they are missing, while others simply smile and think that was funny I love snark and sarcastic humour, but it doesn t make me laugh out loud,likely I will quietly smile or chuckle and think good one lol That s how I reacted to Cole He had some great lines but they were not necessarily laugh out loud ones I found I sympathised with Cole a lot, as I m kinda pessimistic too But there were times even I wanted to smack Cole over the head and tell him to look on the bright side for a change lol.Ellis was lovely except for that one time he bottled things up But he was trying to cope with things in his own way so I can easily give him a pass He did try to make amends lol.This story was both romantic, at times and amusing It also packed a few deep and meaningful punches The speech mentioned near the end was worth hearing....

    Well, I made it to the end of this book woohoo for me , and I seriously didn t think I was going to Cole was such a whiny little toad, I really didn t like him at all, and that was putting me off the book I could completely understand why he was on his own, and talk about OCD and anal But, as usual, when love strikes, ah, the old coup de foudre, nothing is ever the same again.Ellis, who had no sexual experience at all, even with those strange and weird things called girls, was an out going Well, I made it to the end of this book woohoo for me , and I seriously didn t think I was going to Cole ...
