    1. I was really looking forward to this book. Sometimes you really just want to read a good love story, with no frills — with real people. And this book has a lot of strong points. Ultimately, however, all its component pieces never seemed to come together. The major downfall of this story is with the character of Steph and how he is written. I like the character himself. All the time I was reading it, I kept thinking how much he was getting on my nerves, harping on about these feelings and analy [...]

    2. This is a very difficult review for me to do. One on the hand I do not want to offend the author b/c overall I did like the book. But on the other hand, it was very hard for me to get into the book. The writing felt choppy, I had a hard time connecting with the characters til about half way through the book. It almost felt like I was on the outside looking in, I just could not get a feel for the book. Many times when I read a story I get sucked into the world that the author has created. Almost [...]

    3. I'm not usually a big fan of characters still in school or even in college, I don't really care about the problems they usually have. But and there is a big but here, it's not, for once, about a first relationship or discovering sexual orientation or coming out to parents. It's Relationships 201. And that was already a nice change for that trope.So we've got Stephan who is twenty-four, has a nice boyfriend Eric, is a good graduate student, has many friends who seems like a wonderful if not crazy [...]

    4. Stephan's got it all: he's starting grad school, he's got great friends, and he's dating the perfect boyfriend. So why does it feel like something's missing? The epic crush he's developing on the professor for whom he's a TA isn't helping matters. It takes some drastic changes for Stephan to reassess his life and decide just what it is that he wants.Stephan is a compelling character, and I certainly enjoyed the time I spent with him. He's a bit of a party animal but not (usually) to excess, grou [...]

    5. How did I know this was set at UCSC before the town was specified as Santa Cruz? Because although there were certainly a lot of clues, they might have been true of another campus. And there were enough details that seemed wrong to me (like talking about the semester) to be misleading. Yet somehow I was certain it was UCSC, which I'm sure enhanced my enjoyment greatly as I pictured where various things took place (even when descriptions seemed slightly off, like the taqueria being described as on [...]

    6. I thought it's going to be a threesome story, but apparently not. And I think it's another fanfic turned to original story because there're so many side characters around, but there's almost no background/explanation for them. The story's more telling than showing, and the romance was very dull because the first half of the story was about Stephan and Eric's declining relationship. I decided to stop reading at 50% after Stephan and Eric broke up and after knowing that Stephan would end up with J [...]

    7. Good m/m romance about a first-year history grad student who's crushing on the straight professor he TA's for, at the same time he's struggling to reconnect with his boyfriend after a summer apart. I think this would've been a stronger story if it had been shorter, with less time spent on introspection.
