Needed more time to develop the relationship
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
2.5* The idea of this book unfortunately worked better than the execution. It felt a little immature, by that I don’t mean childish, but that – like a good cheese or a fine wine – it needed time to develop.
I didn’t really buy into Conor’s gay for you, it’s a trope that, imho, is difficult to get right and here there wasn’t enough rationale behind why he suddenly started having feelings for Aaron.
However, having said that, I liked that once they did go for their fake relationship, it was mostly all on page, not fading to black. They were sweet together and the ending was lovely.
