This YA first love story was quite a surprise

Spooning Leads to ForkingSpooning Leads to Forking by B.A. Smith

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

This was a surprise, not a bit what I thought it was going to be and actually quite an interesting take on that mad, crazy emotional headrush you get the first time you fall in love.

It’s a sex fest though, these guys are 17 and horny and at it all the time but it’s also realistic and quite brutally honest about finding your way from a passing friendship into a weekend long orgy for two!

There’s a kind of sense to the whole thing though, it fit the narrative of two guys who just suddenly clicked with both sexual chemistry but also on an emotional level.

It ventures slightly off track with each pair’s families, they’re all just a little bit odd, but again, they’re realistic too. Some parents are just benignly apathetic about what their kids are up to without being mean arses.

Overall, even with it being a YA, which I rarely read, I found myself eagerly flipping pages to see where it would go next. Oddly enough, I could see these two together forever right from school.
