ANGST ANGST ANGSTY ANGST. Yep, that about sums it up.


I loved how this book started out. With Justin pining over his best friend Landry, hiding the fact that he is gay. I do love me some intense pining.


The two best friends are on a road trip to spread Justin’s father’s ashes. Landry has never made it a secret he is gay, but Justin hid it from everyone because he wanted to live up to other people’s expectations.

I was expecting a sweet friends to lovers story to unfold slowly, but what we got was DRAMA, ANGST and then……. more drama!

These guys fought all the time. Justin was in the closet for so long he had trouble acting natural with Landry when other people were around. This in turn hurt Landry aaaaand….. -> another fight.

I totally missed the beauty that could have been this trip. I would have loved to see more depth to the purpose of their road trip. But what we got was just not what I wanted.


I feel sad, it could have been so beautiful.
