Publisher's Summary

Robert Westfall's life is falling apart - everywhere but in math class. That's the one place where problems always have a solution. But in the world beyond high school, his father is terminally ill, his mother is squabbling with his interfering aunts, his boyfriend is unsupportive, and the career path that's been planned for him feels less appealing by the day. Robert's math teacher, Andrew McNelin, watches his best student floundering, concerned but wary of crossing the line between professional and personal. Gradually, Andrew becomes Robert's friend, then his confidante. As the year progresses, their relationship - in school and out of it - deepens and changes. And as hard as he tries to resist, Andrew knows that he and Robert are edging into territory that holds incalculable risks for both of them.

J. H. Trumble, author of the acclaimed Don't Let Me Go, explores a controversial subject with extraordinary sensitivity and grace, creating a deeply human and honest story of love, longing, and unexpected connection.

Contains mature themes.

Are there unresolved issues? No, and I loved the HEA

Quality of World and Character building: Great, no room for improvement here

Humor: A little here and there

Action – could it be visualized? Yes, the sex scenes were good. When his ex-wife nagged at him, I could visualize how she manipulated Andrew. I wanted to scream at him and give him a few slaps in the face to wake up.

How was the Mood? Lots of tension to the point of physical excitement.

Was there a connection to the story? Yes, I connected with both main characters.

Cheers, what drink fits this audiobook? Definitely Frangelico on crushed ice.

If I could change something, what would it be? This audiobook was almost 10 hours long. It was well written and I wont change a thing.

Happy Listening

I was hesitant but glad I bought it

At first I was very hesitant as to whether or not I want to dive into this. I know it could be a topic that can be very disturbing to me. but in the end, I am glad I went ahead and bought it. first of all, the narrators did a wonderful job. The story was well crafted. The protagonists are relatable and flawed human beings. It wasn't anything like I feared it would be. There were a lot of angst, but ended happily so I can't complain. Recommend.

Strong and Real

This was a suspenseful and honest story of how things can feel so right yet go so wrong. How someone can turn the life of someone upside with just a lie. Well written and keeps you wanting more!

Interesting look at a taboo subject

I leave this book with confused feelings. There is no doubt in my mind that I think the relationship depicted in this book was wrong. At no point, no matter the age of the student, is this ok. If you take it as an examination of the thought process of both protagonists then this is an interesting read. It was definitely suitable that no in depth description of sexual relations is given in the book. It is clear that the adult in this book is weak. He makes very poor decisions and inevitably they catch up with him. Though not nearly as badly as it could have. It is definitely a thought provoking listen.
The narration was OK. But one narrator spoke much faster than the other. I ended up slowing the narration down and it was less notable.
