Publisher's Summary

I avoid him. Every time Kepler Quinn steps into a room, I get the hell out. He does...something to me. When those discerning gray eyes flick toward me, his brow rising in a silent greeting, there’s a tightening of my abs. A zapping hum quivering low along my spine. There are about a million reasons it shouldn’t be what the little voice in the back of my head insists...a crush. Because Kepler isn’t just some random guy. He’s my brother’s best friend. He’s also my TA for physics this semester. And also...a guy. 

I’ve never held strongly onto being straight, but I’ve also never had this sun-scorching need for another guy before. But I can’t avoid him when we’re suddenly in the back stacks of the library—alone—nothing but the smell of old books and softly falling dust around us. And instead of walking away from him, I let out the two words that burn in my throat: “Kiss me." 

Always is a swoony M/M college romance with a bisexual awakening and sizzling chemistry. It’s the first in the Indigo Falls College series, a stand-alone, and features a happy ending.

Love!

Such a cute book! And super hot. The chemistry between the characters was great and the slightly slow burn was perfect. I think the narrator sounds a bit like he’s reading rather than performing but still loved it. Looking forward to this author‘s next books!

A lot of potential but misses the mark

This is a debut author, and with that in mind, I think there's a lot of potential going forward with both this author's writing and with the expansion of this series. This book needed some editing for length and overall tightening to avoid repetition with word choice (we get it, Kepler has "long fingers"). Jae's interior monologue, particularly in the first half of the book, is often exhausting and is very much a "telling, not showing" narrative device. The romance felt like insta love because (a) we never get Kepler's POV and (b) without a flashback scene to their childhoods, the first time we meet Jae and Kepler is at a fraternity party at the beginning of the school year. The narration was pretty well done.

I want more!

Loren Leigh this book is amazing! The sory is well told and draws you in from the sart of the book. this M/M romance is one of my top favorites that have come out this year and worth a second read and listen. There is a triger warning for anyone who has addiction and domestic violence triggers; however, its is not an over welling and acts as minor part of the book. The relationship between Jae jin and Kepler is amazing to see develop.

Liem DiCosimo is one of my favorite Narrators becuae of his ability to make you fall In love with all the characters.

I can't honestly wait for more. I can't wait to get my eyes and ears on the next book.

Excruciatingly boring, even the sex scenes

Seems to have been written by a straight extra terrestrial who has no idea how humans work or what it might be like to be gay, no clue about emotions, biology, motivations ...

You won't mind if your partner starts vacuuming while listening to this travesty; it will be a welcome reprieve from the author's painful tedium.

Seriously, this is by far the worst purchase I have ever made on Audible, an absolute catastrophe of a novel. What a piece of ...

LOVED IT!!

I loved this book when I read it, and I loved it even more narrated by the amazing Liam DiCosimo. Jin is one of those characters who I fell in love with immediately, and I love how sweet Kepler is to him.
This is a brother’s best friend, bi-awakening romance with a bunch of complications. Besides Kepler’s friendship with Jin’s brother, Jin and his brother Shin are going through a difficult time regarding their mom, which is putting a major strain on their relationship. Add in Kepler being the teacher’s aide for Jin’s physics class, and Kepler’s interesting relationship with Shin, there’s a lot against these two.
But Kepler has known his feelings for Jin for a long time, and once that box is open for Jin, he can’t put the lid back on.
This is a beautiful romance with two men who will support each other through it all and make it work…always

Even better in audio!

When I say I love this book it isn't an exaggeration. I'm not usually a fan of single POVs in my books. I like to know what all characters are thinking all of the time. The author did such an amazing job showing who Kepler is that I didn't even realize I wasn't in his head until I was halfway through the book. I had actual butterflies a few times too. The post its, the pining, the balcony scene. Everything about this book worked for me. I've read it three times and was so excited for the audio. But also a little apprehensive. A bad narrator can ruin an amazing story. Fear not, Liam was perfect. I'm notoriously picky about the narrators I listen to. So much so that there are only about 5 that I have no issues listening to. Liam is on that list. If he's narrating I'm listening.

Great story

Loren Leigh sure can write a great story. Hopefully, the entire series is this good. Liam DiCosimo did an outstanding job bringing this book and all of it's characters to life. Hopefully, we won't get a narrator change in the series. Get this book, it's really, really a good listen

loved this sweet and yet poignant romance

This is a lovely romance well narrated. I love both of the main characters plus the supporting cast (who I hope we see more of in any sequels). would recommend both the book and the audio

Swoony, cute variety with low/medium angst.

Always is book one in the Indigo Falls series. A MM college romance.

This book had been on my TBR since it released but when I was saw it hit audio and Liam DiCosimo was narrating I was logging straight into audible to grab it. And I'm so glad I did.

Kepler and Jae had me hooked from the beginning with their undeniable chemistry and the tension! I really enjoyed the diversity of this book with Jae's Korean culture. To me it added to the story rather than feeling like it was put it for the sake of diversity, a refreshing change.

Their relationship is definitely the swoony, cute variety with low/medium angst. But I found myself invested and Liam of course always brings to life characters and their story so well.

If you're looking for a new MM read I'd suggest giving this one a read!
