There’s no way he’ll shake this off…

Trevor Daniels is feeling aimless. A recent college grad, he’s not sure what to do with his useless degree, and his family all but abandoned him after he revealed the truth about himself. But a friend’s suggestion that he take his chances on a reality show aimed at finding the next big boy band strikes a chord with him—until the show’s p

While I enjoyed the first book in the Perfect Harmony series, I loved this one MORE. Love Me Tenor can easily be read as a standalone. The MCs from the first book are mentioned in passing a couple times but are never on page.

Trevor is lost and scared. Cut off by his religious, homophobic (sad how the two seem to go hand in hand more times than not) family once he comes out as gay, Trevor is weeks away from being homeless. So when he g

I think that anyone who enjoys Albert, who loves music, and also liked Perfect Harmony, will have no problems with this second installment.

Love Me Tenor segues into Lucas’s best friend Trevor, who’s newly out and newly disowned from his family. He has no choice but to sign a contract to be in a singing contest with already made groups, seeing as how Trevor currently has no other options for room and board. However, there’s a catch. Trevor’s group is labeled as “boys in love”, and he ha

Annabeth Albert has once again managed to deliver another fantastic story. We have Trevor, who is alone in the world, after being cut off from his religious and bigoted family. He’s offered the chance to compete in a singing competition and feels obligated to accept to avoid being homeless. There is a catch, though; he must play the part of boyfriend with another member of the group, Jalen. Jalen, who at first comes off as a smartass, but is a kind nurturing young man.

Pretty much everyone loved this one, so I'm sure it's me. If you're a fan of Annabeth's other stuff then I am sure you will like this one.

Reality shows, boy bands, first love, kink for days, and a dash of hurt-comfort - yep, there was plenty to like about this one.

Trevor is a fresh college grad. Recently kicked out of his religious family for being gay and just diagnosed with adult onset diabetes, he has no money to his name, nowhere to go, and no idea what to do with his life now he’s finished school.

Fate intervenes when Trevor is approached to be part of a new reality music show where several newly minted boy bands wil

Hottest New Boy Band competition is filming and Jalen and Trevor are on the same team. Forced together in a marketing stunt they soon find out that they are more interested than they thought. The games boys play.

The exploration of their sexuality and what makes them tick and explode is interesting, thoughtful, and well done. Both guys have some serious issues in their past that have affected them, and they rear up in unexpected ways during the competition and its stresses. I love the subdued and

I’m feeling lazy, so I decided to let fifth grade me review this book:



Omg! OMG! OMG!

If you are in love with love, you will love this book! Jalen and Trevor are just the cutest! There are so many swoony, sigh-inducing moments and I could just DIE of the cute. Like, literally.

Jalen + Trevor 4eva!!! <3
This one went over my head. I admit I had doubts about this one since the very beginning, despite the great reviews. But one thing is to suspect it, and another thing altogether is to experience it in person.

My main and only problem with this book is this simple fact: it’s extremely boring. Apart from a detail or two I got a little upset about, this is the only objection I have.

The writing style doesn’t agree with me. I struggled with each passing chapter hoping for a ray of sunlight to appear,

Really loved this book a hell of a lot. It was the perfect length for me, covering more than just falling in love, but really getting into the psychology of both guys and digging into the sex, the family situation, the past with Trevor, and it was just so deliciously good. I'm all about the psychology of characters and Ms. Albert dug into it and unf. SO GOOD. Recommended read!

This book really delivered for me. Trevor is a graduating college student who is about a month away from homelessness. He recently came out to his ultra-religious conservative family and was turned away. He won't be welcome into the family business where his post-college plans had been as well. He gets a call about a reality singing competition that includes 24/7 cameras.....and housing. DONE!

It's there he meets his "boyfriend" Jalen, who is "jacked like

I wasn’t sold on Trevor when I read the first book in the series, but boy am I glad I read his book! After losing the first spot at the a capella competition, Trevor flies to Vancouver to join a band competing at a reality TV show for America’s new it band. Trevor was ostracised by his very conservative family when he came out and he has nowhere to go, so he chooses this competition mainly to secure a place to live and living expenses. What he didn’t realise was that the band he was chosen to co ...more
There is a lot going on in this romance and that is a good thing,

Trevor was in this first book in this series and he was sympathetic but not very likable.

He is so utterly human and in pain in this book and becomes utterly lovable,

Jalen starts out the book defensive in a way that is not really a match with the personality that is revealed but who he becomes (is) as the book moves on is pretty great.

They make a wonderful couple with pretend romance for the show to get them started.

It would be
What a wonderful surprise this book was for me. I'm new to Annabeth Albert's work and I loved Trevor's and Jalen's story. The boys were young and just starting out on life on their own. One had a supportive adoptive family while the other had a horrible religious zealot homophobic family. I was afraid the story was going to take a dark turn. Thank goodness it didn't go there because I get so angry reading about homophobic families, especially the religious ones. The boys learned and grew as indi ...more

It took me a while to get into this book, unlike Treble Maker where I fell hard and fast. But about half-way through, all of a sudden it seemed to click. Looking forward to the next book in the series All Note Long.

Reviewers note: While one of the main characters was in the first book in this series, it is not necessary to read that book to enjoy this one. The couple from book one is mentioned a couple of times in this book, but not featured.

As I started reading this I realized that I really, really, hated the whole fake relationship for marketing ploy. I thought I could get pass this to find out more about the characters, but even the whole twitter shout at the beginning of the chapters made me grit my teeth because they were all lies. I hated the idea so much. HATED IT. This should be a lesson for me to remember that everything with famous people / Hollywood theme in romance might not always be my thing.

So, I decided to stop earl
Cute story about two young guys with some issues, a TV show and actually music.
I so enjoyed watching Trevor gain confidence in his voice and singing! :)

Hands down, this is Annabeth Albert's best book to date. It was not only fun, but also very complex and the characters certainly manage to play with your heartstrings. I'm pretty sure every single character in this book grew a lot, changed, matured, from who they were at the beginning of this book. I usually don't watch talent shows, but I'm pretty familiar with how they work, and I kind of enjoyed the setting and plot of this book.

This is the second book in a series, and fully enjoyable on its own.

Trevor hails from a conservative Christian family which has rejected him due to his sexuality. He's weeks from graduating college and his whole life already seems a bust. He's cut off from his family and his planned job as music director in his father's church. He has no prospects, no home and less than $100 in his bank account when he gets a call to take part in a "boy band" reality show. Trevor was part of an acapella group i

I loved this one, I think I preferred it just over book one in the series too because Trevor was just so in need of someone to love him and he found the perfect person.

I also love the idea of these singing reality TV shows (even though I don't watch any of them in actuality) and I think this worked better than the a cappella version in book one too.

The cast of secondary characters were great, the twin boyfriends Carter and Carson had me laughing but they actually had a lot of depth to them and t

So this was hot, and good. Like really really good. After reading book one, and seeing what Trevor was like in that, I was a little wary going in to this, thinking I was getting some huge Christian Virgin who would spend most the book preaching before finally giving in. Yep, I was really completely wrong. He was nothing like Lucas in book one, and this moved in to the fun things way quicker. I honestly didn't ever imagine Trev had it in him.

It's summer vacation for me which means that I get to read books. Lots and lots of book! Yay!

But, like you, I only want to read good books if can help it. Books that make me sigh, laugh, cheer, and feel lots of sappy emotions. So I read lots of Goodreads reviews from friends and try to be selective about which books I read. I chose this particular book because a lot of my friends on here gave this book 5 stars and added it to their "Best of 2016" lists. I was excited to read this book as a resu

It took me a while to finish reading this book. Because, as much as I liked this better than Treble Maker, the previous book in the series, at the early pages I still found it hard to blend in with the story. And it's a long one too!

Perhaps it's the tv show stuff that got into my nerves (yes, I admitted though I watched one or two singing competition, I only enjoy the performance part not the drama part of it) or could be my shortage of patience for the young characters attitudes and t
I had to give this four stars instead of five because of how freakin' slow the beginning is. It didn't really start to pick up for me until exactly the 50% point.

BUT...once I got to that place, it picked up amazingly, and I finished the last half in one night as apposed to the first half taking me 3 days to get through.

It wasn't even Jalen and Trevor, the MC's, because I actually enjoyed their relationship throughout, and liked their chemistry. It was practically all the rest of the plot throu
