Again, read this in April, don’t remember as well as I should. PSA: Always write your reviews within a week of finishing the book! It doesn’t end well otherwise! (Writing this mostly for future Ashley, who insists on being a total asshole in this regard.)
It was cute! I remember that. Bitty and the other hockey bros are a good bunch of people to hang out with for an hour or two (these are very fast reads). And this one, if I’m remembering correctly, had a bit of an emotional punch that the first one lacked. The one-two punch of Bitty finally coming out to his parents, and how scary that is for him (Jack is a very supporting boyfriend). (There’s a thing with Jack coming out, too, and what that means for his pro-hockey career.) And Bitty dealing with the bitter-sweetness that is college graduation, as you move on from what is (ideally) one of the best times of your life, to something different and adult, leaving your friends behind, and moving on.
I read this on one on Kindle due to the pandemic. I was supposed to get a hard copy out from the library, which was closed, but ended up buying the Kindle version instead so I could read it as planned. It wasn’t the ideal way to read this. I really need to get ahold of both books in hard copy and do a marathon. Probably would get more out of it when I’m not squinting. (And I did read it on my laptop, which has a touch screen, so it wasn’t even as tiny as it would have been on my phone.)
