I was really looking forward to this book. Sometimes you really just want to read a good love story, with no frills — with real people. And this book has a lot of strong points. Ultimately, however, all its component pieces never seemed to come together. The major downfall of this story is with the character of Steph and how he is written. I like the character himself. All the time I was reading it, I kept thinking how much he was getting on my nerves, harping on about these feelings and analyzi ...more
Stephan's got it all: he's starting grad school, he's got great friends, and he's dating the perfect boyfriend. So why does it feel like something's missing? The epic crush he's developing on the professor for whom he's a TA isn't helping matters. It takes some drastic changes for Stephan to reassess his life and decide just what it is that he wants.

Stephan is a compelling character, and I certainly enjoyed the time I spent with him. He's a bit of a party animal but not (usually) to excess, grou
I'm not usually a big fan of characters still in school or even in college, I don't really care about the problems they usually have.

How did I know this was set at UCSC before the town was specified as Santa Cruz? Because although there were certainly a lot of clues, they might have been true of another campus. And there were enough details that seemed wrong to me (like talking about the semester) to be misleading. Yet somehow I was certain it was UCSC, which I'm sure enhanced my enjoyment greatly as I pictured where various things took place (even when descriptions seemed slightly off, like the taqueria being described as on ...more
Good m/m romance about a first-year history grad student who's crushing on the straight professor he TA's for, at the same time he's struggling to reconnect with his boyfriend after a summer apart. I think this would've been a stronger story if it had been shorter, with less time spent on introspection.
