I'm not sure why I read this? Like, setting myself up to be upset, then being upset.

At the end of the day, I guess I just didn't buy it--that Robert was anything special enough to be worth the risk to a guy 6 years older, that their relationship transcended the normal teacher-student boundaries and was "worth fighting for."

I mean, it wasn't bad--everything with Robert's father hurt a lot to read, in a good way--Andrew's past trauma felt a little shoved in. But at the end of the day I don't feel like I can say that this was anything but harmful for both of them, really.… (mere)

There are so many twists and turns in this story...some thought provoking and some heart-breaking. Nate and Adam have to come to terms with what has happened between the two of them. Adam will have to truly look deep and see what it is he wants from Nate. Nate will have to find himself and learn to stand up on his own with no one to help. Nate will find a friendship that means a lot to him and he will experience love outside of Adam that scares him. The book causes you to take another look at love and relationships in view them in an entirely different light. You'll ask yourself how is it that you can love someone so much that you will put your entire life on hold for them? How is it that a new relationship can open your eyes making you see that what you had right in front of you could have been a lie? The author has done a fantastic job with this story. When the last sentence has been read and the covers have been closed, you will without a doubt love these four guys.… (mere)

I had so many mixed feelings about this story. Andrew as a teacher should have known that what he and Robert had started was going to blow up and take them, at least him, down with it...but love is truly blind, deaf and dumb. Robert lied to Andrew about his age and that wasn't found out until after things were spinning out of control. Andrew thought that Robert was 18 which would have made him an adult, then finds out he wouldn't be 18 for two more months. Andrew is only 6 years older. I felt drawn to their dilemma and found myself rooting for them when I realized that the ups and downs in the relationship was all created entirely by others. It deals with such a controversial subject but is done in such a way that the sexual aspect of the forbidden teacher/student relationship is secondary. The story is strong and realistic and oddly provocative without being vulgar. It's compelling, romantic and if like me you are a sucker for a happy ending you'll love Andrew and Robert. These two deserved happy ever after in spades.… (mere)

Yep! Definitely a YA book, very PG-13. I mean, there's mention of sex happening between the MC's, but we don't see that. Which is okay, cause the story is amazing.

Usually I'm not into student/teacher stories, because a lot of the time the age gap is more than a couple of years (and therefore the older guy must be tough, and the younger must be innocent, right? NOT), and there's always this cat and mouse game, where the student is running after the teacher, tries to pursue him, and when he finally does catch him, the teacher goes from shy and distant to kinky commander. (cliché much?)

But in this case there's only a couple of years separate Andrew and Robert from each other. And I didn't get the feeling that Andrew (the teacher) is more mature then Robert. In some ways yes, since he is a teacher, but emotionally I felt that they're on the same level. And yes! there is maybe a little pursuing from Robert's side, but it's more like he's trying to find something normal in Andrew' friendship while his mourning a father he never really had.

A got frustrated a couple of times, mostly with Andrew. Cause, you know, he's suppose to be the smarter one. He's a teacher but only 24 years old, he doesn't really have much experience, and he makes a lot of mistakes, but that's the beauty of it, they're both trying to navigate in this "relationship".

It does have a HEA, but it didn't actually felt like it, cause Andrew lost his job, which he enjoyed very much. And I did cry a little. :)

Aaand that's the longest review I wrote so far. :)
