The Book High

I've always said I'll read anything, and I really do mean that. Lately M/M romance has had my interest, but fantasy and sci-fi were my first loves and will always hold a special place in my heart. I also love histories and biographies.

So, so good! Getting to see Aaron and Greg happy together AT LAST was amazing and fun and perfect and beautiful. I loved that this bit of their story wasn't any easier than the rest of their journey together, that they still had big things to work through and to get over and that after the buildup from the first two books everything wasn't all just magically perfect between them.

I think my favorite thing in this one was the old lady who sat with and gave advice to Aaron. I LOVED how realistic it was that Aaron honestly believed Greg wanted him gone and didn't magically develop super mind-reading powers like happens so often in romance. In real life, how many people would really have the confidence to see through a ploy like Greg's, and I adored that Aaron didn't. And in real life, how many times do the words or actions of others lead us to answers? I adored that Aaron found that in the old lady.

The only thing that kept this from getting 5 stars from me is the ease with which both Greg and Aaron fell back into ignoring and being content to ignore each other as soon as they got back to their school again. It had seemed in the first few chapters that they'd made progress enough to be more mindful of each other--especially in situations that were as difficult as going back to such a traumatic place--and it made me both sad and uncomfortable that they weren't.

Other than that, though, it was brilliant! It was so great to finally get to see these two happy!
