Rainbow Place #2 is as delightful as the first one!

Safe Place (Rainbow Place, #2)Safe Place by Jay Northcote

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Jay’s second instalment in his Rainbow Place series is a sweet slow burn romance with a young adult feel which sits alongside Seb and Jason’s perfectly.

Alex is an absolute sweetheart, almost 18 and living with a homophobic father and a less than supportive mother and just finding his way with his sexual experience.

Cam’s six years older but still only in his early 20s and his attraction to Alex is complicated by his fears that it’ll ruin their friendship

I could understand Cam’s point, he’d lost a friend when he was younger after their relationship turned sexual, but I have to say, I wanted to thump him at times!

One thing I always love with Jay’s books is that they always feel so very real, like he’s writing about a bunch of people he met in the pub last week or who live in the next town over, and this book is no exception.

I love the Rainbow Place series and am looking forward to seeing what comes next. Dylan and the mysterious shy older customer perhaps? Or Hayden’s adventures at college?

Either way, I know it will be a book I’ll look forward to reading.
