Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you to Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy for writing a book that got me out of my mediocre slump! I would bow down, except I’m in the depths of despair over reading this in one day and not savoring it one word at a time. Now I’m hungover and terrified that I’ll be unable to move on!
Him was epic! I’m sorry, but it seriously was epic. Listen, I was all prepared to hate on this book for it’s similarities to Understatement of the Year which I also liked a whole heck of a lot. Both books are about hockey players who used to be best friends, that friendship ended badly causing years to go by without talking to each other. They are forced to reconnect in college and yada yada yada, you can read between the lines. They were similar on the surface, but they were different in substance.
*Gush gush gush gush*
In Him all of those contemporary traps that I normally can’t stand were nonexistent. The angst was on a low level, very tolerable. It was focused more around the history between Wes and Jamie, and the feelings between them. It was Hott with a capitol H, and it was so damn romantic and cute. Nobody held grudges for chapter upon chapter, and on the flip-side nobody withheld their apologies to soothe their own pride. Everything about it was just flipping perfect. All of it was perfect. I have absolutely zero complaints.
Please, Ms Kennedy and Ms Bowen, please tell me this isn’t it! You know exactly how to write an amazing M/M love story. I’ll be rereading this book again, very very soon. Possibly immediately!
Thank you to Rennie Road Books for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
