I stumbled across this one quite by accident after seeing a friend's status update and I just knew from the beginning this was going to be special.This Author can write and I'm still surprised by how many wonderful MM Authors that are out there that don't have more recognition.
I feel as though I'm repeating myself here but if you're interestedStars.
Just to clear things up, because of the way GR formats editions, I didn't realize that the paperback edition had an actual description. I was responding to the original list of advanced praise excerpts in the description on this edition, which has since been changed to an actual description. That seems to have caused some confusion. That's what the sentence below is commenting on.
Huh. Turns out the paperback edition actually had a description.

5+++++ FANTASTIC EMOTIONAL STARS!!!
Ev, Ever, Every, Everything, Everett.
I don't think I can review this book.
I won't be able to find the words that can do it justice.
Maybe I'll try it later, but right now...
I'm overwhelmed with emotions and feelings.
Can you simply believe that this book is great?
This quote, out of the book, can probably explain in the best way the story:
"People who are meant to be together will always find their way."
It was one of the best gay young adult books I've ever read.
Highly highly highly recommended.

The writing was nice enough. I guess this is a case of it's not the book, it's me. I was secretly hoping it would remind me a little bit of Memorizing You, my favorite YA M/M read. While Memorizing You drew me in from the beginning and never let go, Every Time I Think of You simply bored me to tears.
I will gladly move onto the next one…
P.S. The formatting is off (the size of the font differed constantly).
I couldn’t shake the feeling this book was a kind of therapy for me after reading Memorizing You. The plots have some similarities, in both of them the MC are teens discovering the first/true love, both are set in the 70s and both have an accident that changes their lives forever since. It’s unfair but for me was almost like a series in whi ...more
Told from Reid’s POV, Every Time I Think of You is a sweeping study of the mechanics of young love: the lust, the angst, the desperation, the embarrassment, the innocence, the all.
High school seniors Reid and Everett have been raised as differently as two kids could be. Reid’s parents are interested and involved in his life. Before he ever comes out to them, it’ ...more
I continued to read this book because of the high reviews and the "turning point" in the story. I'm glad I did eventually finish it. Reid was a likable character, but Everett was selfish, did not like hi ...more
To say that Every Time I Think of You is a brilliant novel would be an understatement. I don't think I can do this book any justice, my words are too limited to praise it the way it deserves. But I can say that it's engrossing, passionate, at once tender and beautiful. I can say that I.L.O.V.E.D.I.T!!! In fact, I fell in love with this book right after chapter 1.
Sometimes I read a book and didn't realize how much I'd be going to love it until a few days after (or at least, a day after). But apparently this ...more
That's one of those books. You know that it will break your heart. And that's exactly how it was. But I don't regret anything. It's one of the most beautiful books I read about growing up. And in that case, if growing up doesn't run in the perfect way that you wish and thought.
It's the story of Everett and Reid. Who meet in unusual circumstances in a winter forest. Although the first meeting is heated, it's rather a quiet book that doesn't at...more
I would borrow my mother's car to visit Everett's rebellious sister in Pittsburgh. I would secretly drive him into the poorer section of that city where, hooded like a gang member, he would purchase marijuana. I would commit several min ...more
This book appears to be self-published, which usually means "needs an editor." Not here. In fact either Provenzano is one of those rare writers who is able to edit himself, or had other skilled editors work on the manuscript. The result is a text which is more polished than many books I've rea ...more
"I want to have adventures with you. I want more."
One snowy day in the woods, 17 years old Reid catches Everett "wanking in a winter wonderland". This is the fairy tale beginning of Reid getting to know "another boy by his gestures, his sound, his taste [...] and to dive headfirst into another world of clumsy, passionate and impulsive acts."
Other reviewers already pointed o ...more
Bathed in contrivances, an awkward, obsessive focus on sexual activity and written in a forced and belabored style, Every Time I Think of You tells the story of Everett and Reid. These two star-struck lovers meet in one of the most absurd book introductions in history. Reid, succumbed to teenage hormones, escapes to his favorite masturbation vacation spot; the woods. Of course he stumbles across someone who is masturbating at the same exact time at the same exact place. It’s winter. There is snow. Thi ...more
To be honest, I had a bit of a problem getting into it at first - I needed to get used to the language, the whole setting, the protagonists' age (that might seem weird, but I'm just not used to re ...more

These boys really tugged at my heartstrings. I wasn't so sure about Everett at first. I feared he would be a bad influence on Reid with his thrill-seeking and smooth-talking behavior. But really, these two are so right together. Everett is able to pull Reid out of his shell. Although Reid is more sensible, he loves the excitement he feels with Everett, and Everett makes him feel special. He quickly finds himself falling in love with the mischievous and charming boy who lives just on th ...more
I don't know that I can do this book justice in a review. I loved it. The characters are real and grow through their hardships. It's clever, poignant and beautifully wr ...more
"I’m not sure how or why this book sat on my TBR shelf for so long, but if it’s sitting on yours, pick it up immediately (it’s that good).

Both of the main characters of this story grab you and take you on a journey of discovery with them. What could have been a sweet, wonderful story suddenly becomes something darker and much grittier after an accident changes things in a way that neither of them expects. You want to grab them up and hold them, protecting them from the possible future they’ve lost and the potential future they now have to find, whether it be alone or together ...more
