When two best friends fall for each other, will fear prove to be more powerful than love?

Ken might be a big, strong jock, but he has been open about his sexuality since high school, and has never tried to hide who he is from anyone. Which has made his existence in small town America more than a little awkward, to say the least, and has led to him being a little bit shy a

This is yet another poorly executed, clunky story with shallow characters (the MCs are seriously dumb) and stilted, awkward dialogue.

Cringe worthy; do NOT try it!

I made it to 40 percent, skimmed through the rest, then read the last couple chapters. These, er, "authors" need to find another hobby. The writing thing just isn't working out.

Not my favorite. The story was shallow and simplistic.

I would have liked a stronger HEA

I was a little disappointed that things felt a bit unresolved at the end of this book for me. Things like: did Johnny come out to his parents? Why wouldn’t Johnny have worked things out with Shelley after he and Ken got back onto a solid footing? Other than selling Johnny’s paintings, were they planning much of anything for the future? Those unresolved things made this felt more like an HFN than an HEA to me.

This was a very fun straight to gay/GFY book. I loved t

I don't know why I keep reading these kind of stories. Actually why do I keep buying them?

I like it but I read this, what a day ago? and already forgot half of it.

It's like eating a bag of chips, if you don't watch out you keep eating the stuff long after the time you were actually enjoying it.

Best friends forever.

What better way is there to have a lasting loving relationship than to start off as best friends? That sense of someone there for you, sharing your ups and downs, wanting the bet for you.
These two young men began in friendship but had some heartbreaking bumps in the road to overcome. The realization that the only people who matter in your choice on who to love, is the person you've given your heart to. Once Johnny realized this fundamental truth, he and Ken found their HEA.

I loved Try It by Felix Brooks and Riley Knight. I thought it was well written and flowed nicely and has just the right amount of angst to it and lots of sexy hot scenes. I couldn't get enough of Johnny and Ken. I fell in love with them both. I hope these two authors continue to write together because I love the stories they come up with. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. ...more
