Blurb: Oskar used to be Marco’s best friend. His everything. His sunshine yellow.
But that was before. Before Marco stopped being a hot jock. Before he learned to live with scars and pain. And before Oskar tore their friendship apart.
Now the boy next door has returned home, determined to rekindle his friendship with Marco, and Marco’s more afraid than ever. Afraid of getting hurt. Afraid of being humiliated.
Afraid of falling in love.
Can Oskar find a way through Marco’s fear, back into his heart?
I ca’t really say much about this book except, it was great.
First of all, I love Marco! I loved how he attempted to move on but when he realized he couldn’t he accepted it and reassessed his options. I loved how hard he worked to earn forgiveness. I loved how determined he was even in the face of his own personal shit he had going on in his life. He put others before himself. He made mistakes and owned them. And he forgave himself. I just….:sigh: I love him.
Oskar….not so much. He came off a bit too whiny for me TBH. His refusal to forgive and keep holding onto his pain and hatred were a huge turn-off for me. I’ma huge believer in the power of change so that’s probably why I had such a hard time with him. But he did end up redeeming himself in the end, so he wasn’t so far gone that there was no return from the island of assholes. He was a great support system for Marco’s sister and he was close with his family so there was some depth to see.
And holy shit, the sex scenes! I mean, they seemed a bit too intense with this love story but damn I think I may have blushed while reading them, which doesn’t happen very often. 😉
I received this ebook in exchange for an honest/unbiased review.
