    (no rating)
    Alex and Seth have been friends since childhood. Alex knows no other way of living life other than being with Seth. He is not just her best friend but also the love of her life. But unfortunately, he has a secret that only Alex is aware off and it is this secret that will stop them from being together as a couple. Alex's unrequited love for Seth (specially because of all that he puts her through) and Seth's attempts to keep his secret in the closet are both heartbreaking. Seth plays with people's emotions by dating women and then dumping them. In the beginning it was obvious that he was my least favorite character because of the inconsiderate ways he treated Alex and others. But as the story progresses my sympathies were with him for the rebuke he faces based on his sexual preferences. The story is told from the point of view of Alex, but the author still manages to capture every person's emotions diligently. With cheerleaders, sportsmen, parties, campus life, friendship, love and everything else that you would expect from a college life; this book brings a lot of realism. The secondary characters were a saving grace, I loved Trinity's maturity and felt that she was the best influence on Alex. I wished Trinity and Dink were introduced much earlier. Rated a 4 on 5 for taking such a delicate topic such as LGBT relationships and showcasing the social problems associated with it in a light manner.
