DOWNLOAD × Kieran Drew Ng time crush it jumpstarts a relationship that introduces them to sex intimacy and love Neither has ever been this happy But lasting happiness is evasive and Kieran’s desperation to get out of Florida and Drew’s desire to stay and care for his family cannot be reconcile. I have a thing for uiet unassuming books that innocently pull you in giving the impression of being something you can easily put down because hey there s really not much going on and you ve read something like this before only flashier but then it s three hours later and your stomach is growling you ve missed breakfast none of your weekend to do list is getting done and you don t give a fuck because you re hooked and would rather starve than close your Kindle Sure nothing has changed the pace is still pretty slow the characters subdued and realistic but that s just it You re practically inhaling the book because it s so simple and low key and engaging and just so damn earnest Kieran Drew is such a bookKieran is the odd guy in school no one s friends with and Drew is the hot all American athlete everybody likes After Drew finds out Kieran has a crush on him a friendship starts which is uickly followed by smexin in the art room They discover sex themselves and I try to find other cliches I can stick in this review to help me describe the guys growth as they navigate their senior year in high schoolSuperficially it was the usual geek and jock story that had coming of age and GFYOFY elements in it At its core it kinda was the usual geek and jock story that had coming of age and GFYOFY elements in it There was a comic geek whose dad didn t pay him any attention a jock who had his own family issues a homophobic asshole teenagers and their random acts of casual cruelty and a good dose of teenage drama and angstThe thing though was it was all written in such a way that you felt the angst and the drama and all the other plot things without being repeatedly hit over the head with it Nothing was overdone and the MCs were such likable characters that any issues I may have had dim in the light of their simple but relatable narrativeKieran presented his story with blunt self reflection that prevented him from coming off as whiny or pathetic He could also have come off as ungrateful or heartless a time or two but he was just honest enough about what drove him that I forgave him before I even started to think about disliking him Also high school is brutal and you sometimes need a dose of selfishness just to help you surviveBut while I prolly could relate to Kieran this book worked as well as it did for me because of Drew and his uiet strength I read a sample of another book before I picked this up and decided to pass because the MC in that was pretty much slapping people s faces with his balls And not in a kinky way More like in a getting all up in people s faces unnecessarily and making random growly threats just so they can see how badass I am kinda way Such a turn off Anyway Drew was nothing like that He didn t need to pull his pants down to show people he has balls of steel He just went on being nice and kind and considerate and a pillar of fucking strength for the people he cared about You didn t need to see his balls to know he had them and he didn t need to slap you in the face with them to show their strength They were like ninja balls The flow of the story was admittedly slow but I never even once thought of it as dragging Kieran s and Drew s POV were both engaging that you feel good and satisfied even when there was really nothing much going on And I loved that they both only ever came out on page to the people they care about I mean public outings have the drama I pretty much live for when it comes to my GFYOFY books but this was in keeping with Kieran and Drew s relationship Nothing flashy or too dramatic but still sincere and touching So with all this understated awesomeness that I only recently realized is like catnip for me why am I not giving this book 5 stars Well it was the geek part of it you see I mean I buy the fact that Kieran s a comic book and creepy movies geek However some of the mentions of the usual pop culture geek stuff came through as a bit trying too hard You know like when a teacher uses teenage lingo to show how hip they are but coming off as patronizing assholes I d say it s me and that I ve always had a problem with random mentions of Middle Earth or the Daleks in my romance books and that I ve always disliked it but I ve read books that threw a shitload of pop culture stuff at me and loved it so it s not me book It s youAlso the dig about Twilight and how books are better than movies Not appreciated I agree but I didn t appreciate it I have no problems with characters having opinions about stuff but if the two MCs have the exact same opinion it feels less like their opinion and like the author s And it really takes me out of the world the author worked hard to put me in I read something like that and I can almost feel the author elbowing me and going Right RightSmall niggles though compared with how beautiful the story was told and how memorable Kieran and Drew were Recommended for those who like done to death stories with characters that stay with you not because they were too loud or different but because they were simple and ordinary sad but true Kieran Greek Myth and the Bible desperation to get out of Florida and Drew’s Global Leadership desire to stay and care for his family cannot be reconcile.
