review 1: Warning: This book describes depression, eating disorders, and thoughts of suicide. This was an amazing book. Ms. Kasey did an amazing job describing the emotional and physical turmoil depression and eating disorders can cause. This is a difficult book to read because all of the emotions are so raw. You feel everything the characters are going through and you want to help so badly but you just have to watch it play out. I was so impressed with the growth of the characters and their ability to tackle their demons and start to regain control of their lives.The ending to Dane and Bas’s story was wonderful but the cliffhanger teaser to Tommy’s story was brutal. I am really hoping we get to read Tommy’s story very soon, he seems to have just as many problems as Dane di... mored and needs to find his own HEA. I have a feeling his story will be just as difficult as Dane’s or possibly even worse but, worth it to see him healthy and able to face life again.
review 2: Disclaimer: I have not yet read book 1 in this series (but I will be going back to read it).WOW! I have to be honest that I wasn’t sure if I would like this book based on the title…but this is an absolute must read!! When you read the story, the title will make perfect sense and bring a smile to your face.Let me get the basics out of the way first – the writing in this book is really good. I am a nazi when it comes to grammatical and spelling errors and I found none in this book. I have never had a personal experience with eating disorders so I cannot speak to any of the technicalities about it. My review is based solely on entertainment value of the book.This story touched me on several different levels…as a mom, as a friend of gay couples that has suffered bullying for their sexual orientation and as a human being that believes all people should be treated equally. Dane suffered at hands of his parents for most of his life, being subjected to physical, sexual, verbal and emotional abuse. Even though he has lived through all this abuse and had to grow up pretty quickly because of his fame, he has an innocence and childlike essence that just makes you want to hug him. He has no filter and says whatever comes to his mind regardless of the consequences. Thankfully he has surrounded himself with friends that can support and care for him and who can help him learn how to be comfortable in social situations. I personally love his lack of filter as I lack one myself. Regrettably, those around him are easily hurt and don’t always understand his comments as ignorance instead of malice. I don’t want to give too much away but I absolutely love the way Bas, Adam and Ru help him heal from not only his eating disorder but the effects of 12 years of abuse. These guys are truly great friends to him.Bas is just as broken as Dane. His only advocate has been his grandmother whom he just lost. His family is absolutely horrible. He has been bullied and abused. He hides behind his snarky comments and flamboyant behavior. Fortunately for him, Dane sees through that protective layer to the man Bas really is and loves him for it. The 2 of them balance each other and make a great pair – even if they were to remain just friends, forever. I’m hopeful Bas and Dane are able to follow through with the life plans that Bas has as I think that would be an inspiration for all the troubled teens they come in contact with.Adam and Ru obviously have a history that is told in book 1 but it is not necessary to read that book before reading this book. As I stated, after falling in love with this book I will be going back to book 1 because I do think that information would help understand some of their quirks in this book.Tommy is one of Ru and Dane’s ex-band members and plays a pretty big role in this book. He is a good friend to all these guys and wants to help all of them. Unfortunately, he is just as lost as Dane and Bas are but his unraveling takes place over the entire story and leaves us not so patiently waiting for book 3 for his story. Another 2 characters that I’m hoping we’ll see more of are Paige and Marissa. I can’t say too much about either of them without giving too much away but they both play integral parts of the story that I would like to see more of in future books.This book is very touching and will stay with you for a long time. It is definitely one you must read. less
