Publisher's Summary

“Sorry, but could I maybe get my hoodie back? I actually really like it.” 

Between having a girlfriend, a job, and pretty decent grades, 17-year-old Jules Hatcher is living a perfectly normal life. That is, until he stumbles into Hunter Adams, who is not only openly bisexual, but also notorious for being a player and always getting what he wants. And what he wants happens to be nothing less than Jules.  

What starts with Jules spilling coffee over Hunter and in turn lending him his hoodie quickly spirals into something much more complicated. Trapped in a struggle with himself and confined by the rules of society, Jules’ entire world is turned upside down, until the one thing he knows for sure is this: Getting his favorite hoodie back is by far the smallest of his problems.

A struggle to finish.

This book was consistently inconsistent. The narrator sounded like a 30+ man, rather than a teenager. There were 2 chapters where the point of view switched unecessarily. The "bad boy" character was unconvincing-he went from hating the main character to loving him within a very short time span. It was just frustrating to listen to overall.

Outstanding! Great Story! Great Audible Listen🎧

I adored this book, it is a great young adult novel, heartfelt and entertaining. Philline Harms is a new to me author, I did not look her up until after I finished the book. I was amazed to find she is a young adult herself, well that kind of explains how she captured the essence of teenage living so well. To publish a novel at 17 years old is a great accomplishment, especially one that is so good. This book is 15 hours long and it engrossed me from start to end. The storylines and characters are interesting and well developed. I loved how she was able to bring us along side the characters, inside their heads, to learn how they felt and what they were going through. It saddens me, that to this day people shun their own kids because of their sexuality, whether it be for religious reasons or just plain homophobic hate. Hello, it is 2019, acceptance is key to living a healthy, happy life, hate only destroys. OK, off my soap box and back to the story. I really liked Jules Hatcher and his best friends Nate and Emily. I loved how Jules and Hunter 1st met and how the author came up with her title. Also loved the chemistry between them. I really felt bad for Jules and the treatment he received from his parents. I did not care for the over the top antics and bullying he received from Victoria or the power Jules’ parents gave her to hold over him and Hunter. Were his parents so blind they could not see thru her lies? I can say the three things that annoyed me in this book, Jules’ Mom, Dad and Victoria, made a great team of ignorant and narcissistic idiots. IMO. I highly recommend this book, it has lots of drama, angst, some laughs and lot of emotions. Thanks for this great story Philline Harms, I hope this is a start to a long writing career, you are gifted and have a way with words.

I listened to the Audible edition, Maxwell Zener is a wonderful narrator and voice performer. He performs the voices of all the characters bringing each to life with their own voice and personality. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thanks for this great listen🎧

Talented new author!

A very enjoyable and affirming story, read expertly well. The main characters and the supporting cast are well drawn and convincing. The story unfolds amid an enlightened and supportive group of school friends who band together in the face of parental and other forms of prejudice, malice and violence. In the end, everyone gets what they deserve and the conclusion befits a true romance. I’d give the story 5 stars if it hadn’t been for the rather reduced vocabulary used by the author: it’s ok for the first half but after that you get tired of the same phrases over and over (rolled eyes, shrugged, eyes widened, lips crashed (sic) on mine). It’s a pity because this is really the only weakness in the entire book. The author should by all means keep producing and stick to the same formula, but for goodness’ sake buy a thesaurus! If Hunter is so gorgeous, shouldn’t we hear more specifics as to why? Even a line or two here and there? The sexual encounters were literally devoid of any details: again, the author should be more creative! She clearly has the ability. In summary, it’s a wonderful and sweet romance, long and absorbing, but could be lifted into the truly exceptional category with a little extra work. Waiting for the next one with eager anticipation.

A good light listen

I started this book with the hope that it would have a good ending (most of these don't)and I was not disappointed. I will not say more due to not wanting to spoil it but if your reading this you should deffinitly listen to it. At times it does have the feel of being written by a teenager and reminded me of some stories I have read off of Wattpad. Its not very realistic in that there is almost no adult presence and all the characters with the exception of the main character (who are all teenagers) have almost no adults are just run off doing whatever they want. Also it contain every plot twist you can think of in a teen movie and was very predictable. Thus, I say it reads like it was written by an idealistic teenager BUT is still a good book if you dont take it to seriously. I received my copy free of charge in return for an honest review.

From Idyllic Utopia to Idealized Reality

I enjoyed this audiobook. The dialogue is interesting as is the quasi-Canadian vocabulary with a great narration voice.
It started so innocent a storyline that evolved into a much more real life with its hard challenges the best and worst of the world’s families all face.
Fortunately, it’s a story that happens in the context of a society that doesn’t imprison or kill its children for being gay, despite the threat from the types of world institutions in the story that do.
I am glad to have listened.
