This is the second book in this series but can be read as a stand alone. Alex lives at home with his homophobic parents and can't wait to turn eighteen and graduate. He meets Cam at Rainbow Place the new LGBTQ cafe in town. Despite the attraction, Cam puts Alex firmly in the friend zone, claiming Alex has far too much going on at the moment, with exams and his father. When Alex is caught with another boy, his father assaults him and Alex leaves. He accepts help from Cam and Is sleeping on his couch, and working at Rainbow Place. The romance was sweet. This was a great read, full of the angst of coming out, homophobia, and most importantly, of hope and a safe place to be yourself. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Great second book in the series. I was very much looking forward to Alex's story and it was all I'd hoped for. Cam was adorable and his housemate and friends are just hilarious. More of a sweet romance than I'm used to from Jay but definitely a good read.
