Publisher's Summary

Merlon Hilton, who everyone affectionately called Junior, grew up in a home that most would envy. He along with his two siblings Aimee and Jonah enjoyed a charmed life which stemmed from the fruits of their parents' hard labor. Junior has always been on the softer side and knew early on that he was…different. Even as a child, Junior realized that he lusted after male classmates; well, one in particular. Growing up with an Army Officer for a father was not an easy feat. Junior was often reminded that he was to represent the family name proudly. He and his father often butted heads and rarely saw eye to eye. Junior tried his hardest to please his father, even at the cost of losing himself at times. 

Corey is a handsome jock who grew up on the wrong side of the track. Living in the projects, he is often subjected to abuse at the hands of his drug addicted mother’s pimp. He often comes to school starving and in clothes that are tattered and much too small. Corey, however, dreams big and never loses sight of his goal. He knows that one day his luck will finally change. Unfortunate circumstances forces Corey to cross paths with Junior and the two soon become inseparable. The problem is that Corey is unwilling to admit and accept his feelings for Junior.  

Join Junior on his quest to find love, acceptance, and purpose. Junior will suffer many losses and heartbreaks throughout his journey. Will he ever meet Mr. Right?

This book was good from beginning to end! Junior is a mess! Corey was making me mad by not knowing what he wanted. Check this one out.

Now what I expected and not in a good way.

This wasn’t a “gay love story” but a bisexual coming of age drama with gay undertones.there was also more detail in the straight sex scenes than the 3 gay scenes but that was probably because it was written by a woman so that explains that much. I understand the author was trying to write something different but to write a story in which you have more plots with the secondary characters than the actual main character himself is not a “gay love story”. You can’t have them possibly express affection through the whole book and slap on a happy ending at the end and call it love. it also seemed rushed and I couldn’t place how long time had actually passed with certain events and in one part of the book it read off a future chapter in the middle of the story which Threw me completely off. I hate to really talk negatively about any book by any author but this was not pleasing at all. If you’re gonna make a book about a gay person research and have conversations with gay people and not assume that we just dive in and out of homosexuality whenever we see fit like it’s a choice because it’s not.
