Review: Hearing Kellan Brooks say “I need a boyfriend” was probably one of the last things Nate Gray ever expected to happen in his life. He and Kellan had been friends when they were younger, but they quickly drifted apart when Nate started getting targeted by his classmates for being gay. Nate has witnessed Kellan’s playboy antics on television and in magazines, but Kellan’s father has finally cut him off for his philandering – something Kellan hopes to undo by pretending he’s gay to upset his father. And Nate’s even more surprised when he learns that Kellan expects him to play a starring role in this charade.
I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this one based on the description. I shared some of the same discomfort with the overall situation as some of the characters express during the course of the story. And while I would have liked to see a bit more depth to the development of the two main characters, their feelings about the situation, and their relationship, I did enjoy it overall. I’ll definitely be giving the next book a read when I get a chance.
