So, uh, wow This started out really bad for me I get the stereotype, but it felt like the author was trying to beat me over the head with it The characters have names I don t need them referred to as emo and jock repeatedly The characterizations should be enough description Also, the writing was too simplistic at times, well most of the time I do think the relationship was built pretty reasonably, but I just didn t find myself really attached to either character Even with all that though, this was probably headed for a 2.5 rating However, the Charlie situation towards the end blew out all my what the ever living fuck signals, and I just couldn t I can t This is the 4th YA m m novel that has had this type of situation in it that I ve read in probably the last 6th months It does nothing for the story but steer it towards ridiculousness Do I think it can be written in and done well Sure, but I ve yet to seen it done so At least not in the m m genre This is really disappointing because o
I loved this story The plot has been used before in movies and other romance novels but I love it anyway.Evan lives in a trailer park and is abused by his alcoholic ass of a dad Cole has it all, gorgeous, super smart, tall, football star and very rich with parents who travel a lot and just compensate their son with
3.15 Some reviewers complained of the overuse of the words emo and jock for the MCs, and they are absolutely right It got to be a bit much and I was literally waiting for the next time one of those two words was used for an MC as I was reading.The storyline is hurt comfort abuse meets a YA Cinderfella and opposites attract with a crazy ex
Usually if I don t put any stars on the book well, that means that book is just not my type of book and no way am i reading it again. One thing that totally totally puts me off is when Charlie said the 3 words Cole immediately break the relationship. What was he doing with Charlie for two years Don t tell me there s not even love during the two years. That s what turns me off immediately. I actually felt sad for Charli
I really loved this 2 characters, and the story was pretty good.The only reason I didn t rate it higher, it was because of the abused This year alone, I have read so many stories portraying abused characters, it is getting really annoying.The authors are running out of ideas that they keep using t
Review posted at Under the CoversMuch like the mixing of two of your favorite foods that would never seemingly go well with each other until you give it a shot and suddenly discover that it the next best thing since sliced bread, there is something equally amazing about putting together two characters who couldn t be opposite and finding them falling for each other The story of the Emo and the Jock is just like that.Meet the Emo Evan Harris He is a loner and the only emo in a small town school He lives with his deadbeat father who uses him as a punching bag He s artistic He works at a music store And he is failing Algebra.Enter the Jock Cole Morgan He s the school s star football player He is gay but has not come out except to his ex boyfriend, Charlie His family is rich, but his parents are too busy to spend much time with him He excels at Algebra and just became Evan s personal tutor Oh, and I forgot to mention, Cole has had a faraway crush on Evan for the past couple of years.Rather quickly, Evan and Cole form a friendship these two seemingly different boys realize they have in co
I liked this book but there were a few niggles First, I found the constant reference to the two main characters as the emo and the jock to be way over used I understand that we are working with stereotypes here but goodnight. Second, while some of the writing was quite good, I thought the majority was a bit too simplistic Alot of potential here but it fell a little short for me Th
2.5 stars rounded up because for once the jock wasn t questioning his sexuality and was tutoring the emo guy but the rest of the plot was too soap opera like for my taste. 3.5 stars, I was so excited for this story because the idea sounded like just what I was in the mood for The story was good but I really was looking for angst and it was short so you didn t have much time to get into the characters All in all a good read because it kept my interest enough.
