Lovely, low-angst, mm romance. Great third book in the series. Can‘t wait for the audiobook.

I‘m 48% in. It‘s witty and banter-y, sweet and lol funny in places…but it‘s me and reading an MC with anxiety like mine is so hard to take that I can only read it in small doses. The audiobook is also well done. Maybe the miracle here is that it‘s so well written I can still enjoy it, even in small bites.

CarolynM I‘m enjoying this but I can see that Paris‘s anxiety would be hard to read if you‘re dealing with similar issues. I think Alexis Hall writes really well about mental health issues (I adore Glitterland, which features an MC with severe depression) and I‘m really interested to see where he going to go with this one. 1mo
Nutmegnc @CarolynM I finished it and I think therapy and dealing with anxiety IS extremely well handled. I enjoyed Glitterland as well but didn‘t quite get as triggered 🤣. I still enjoyed this book and gave this one ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1mo

Apart from the satisfying ending, I had a really hard time getting into this. Just me??! I mean the audio was stellar and there were funny spots…

Nutmegnc But Luc was really jerky and awful. I had so little sympathy for him. 🤷‍♀️ 3mo
GingerAntics @Nutmegnc really? I found him to be the same loveable hot mess he was in the first book. 3mo
Nutmegnc @GingerAntics So it‘s just me. I loved him in the first one but I was so over it.Maybe I‘ll try again at a less stressful time of the year. 3mo

GingerAntics @Vansa wow! Yeah, then don‘t even try this one. If the first one wasn‘t your thing, the second one won‘t be either. 3mo
GingerAntics @Nutmegnc maybe. I dunno. Maybe he didn‘t grow enough for what you were thinking he should. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I thought someone told me a third book is already in the works called “parent material,” so I‘m not sure how we‘re going to get from this ending to that, but maybe you‘ll like him better in that one. 3mo
Nutmegnc @GingerAntics yeah I think that‘s it. I will probably read the third one anyway. 3mo

Sweet and more complex than I expected. Themes of friendship, found family, determination, self-identity, the nature of good and evil—all wrapped in a fun story! Thank you so much @Bookgoil and #litsylove!! I really enjoyed it. Also, when I finished the book was donated to a local middle school classroom.

I saw this recommended on Booktok and I read it in a book slump. I had low expectations but it was a really entertaining queer historical paranormal (?) mystery romance. I was so surprised and delighted to find this. My only issue was that it seems to actually be a spin-off series and I was confused by some of the characters in the beginning. Rather than being a problem, I am now going to read the other series!

xicanti Yessss, read the three set before it! They‘re also great, though I think this one was my favourite. 5mo

Okay, I was expecting to need tissues…because Jay Bell tugs the heartstrings. What I didn‘t expect in the middle of this queer YA romance was a psychopath murder mystery. I didn‘t love it. I get it was about different kinds of love and found family but It seemed somewhat uneven. And was it an HEA?! 🤔
