This book is set in a high school for super-rich kids, but it's easy to identify with the characters. The level of friendship and relationship angst is just right. I do wish the author had given it more of a sense of place - I kept forgetting that they're in Ireland so I had to give them accents inside my head.

Maddy linehan rocks. All the books that I've read are fantastic. Keep up the great work. Two thumbs up and for good measure I'm throwing in two big ties also lol.

I love this book.
Set in HS Tyler & Conor have a give and take relationship.
But Conor is still in the closet and takes every given opportunity to bully Tyler in public.
How the story develops, we need Jackson to complete the love triangle.
Seeing Tyler and Jackson together sets something in motion inside Conor and is time to face the truth.
Conor is your typical bad boy, but once he gets over the attitude he is one of the most adorable MCs I read in a while.
What is amazing about this is that the book is free. So when I get to read this quality for free is an additional satisfaction.
You will really enjoy not just Tyler & Conor's relationship but the secondary characters are great too! Specially Tyler's best friend Josh. Their dynamic is so funny, Josh is the best friend a boy can have.

This is a great book! (Lame I know, but I'm serious. Also, I have no idea how to start these reviews off :p)
ANYWAY, it has just the right level of angst and romance for it to be not heartbreaking, but still allow you to sympathize with all the right people. There also isn't too too much over the top drama but enough to keep the story interesting. Personally, it is one of the best books I have read in a long while. The sequel is also pretty good, so you should read that too, but I like this one a little better.

I saw this book as a recommendation on smashwords while buying another book (Redemption by Olivia Duncan Craig) and decided to buy it also. It was a “you set the price” type of book so I could have gotten it for free but decided to pay for it. Cannot say I regret it. I’m well out of high school but the story of Tyler and closeted Conor was sweet, even if predictable all the way through and overall light. I’ve read greater books with the same theme but that does not detract from this story. Also a plus were Tyler friends, Josh and Rachel

A great read, taylor and conor had me glued to the book, they're journey was hard but the accomplishment in the end was worth it, it was funny but also romantic. I have read it more than once since I've purchased it and the feeling is always the same. A great book from a great author

What an incredible book! I stored it under favorites in my reader so I can read it again and again. The characters are so detailed it's like you really know them at the end and you don't want to say goodbye to them. (good thing there's a sequel :) (lost in stereo)) I sure am gonna keep an eye on Maddy Linehan from now on!

Wow! This book waz amazing. My props to you. Your an amazing writer. I stayed up all night to read it and when I wasn't reading it I kept thinking of what was going to happen next. This book had everything from alcahol and drugs to romance and relationships. I hope theirs a sequel! Maybe about how conor comes out to his parents or I don't know anything. I just hope theirs a sequel.
