Love, like everything in the universe, cannot be destroyed. But over time it can change.
The hot Texas nights were lonely for Ben before his heart began beating to the rhythm of two words; Tim Wyman. By all appearances, Tim had the perfect body and ideal life, but when a not-so-accidental collision brings them together, Ben discovers that the truth is rarely so simple. If winning Tim's heart was an impossible quest, keeping it would prove even harder as family, society, and emotion threaten to tear them apart.
Something Like Summer is a love story spanning a decade and beyond as two boys discover what it means to be friends, lovers, and sometimes even enemies.

I did love it
It was sweet, and at times Erotic.
New York based author.
The lives of Benjamin Bentley, Tim Wyman, and Jace Holden—all outsiders in their own ways and all struggling with the unwanted ramifications of being gay—are drawn together over and over, despite setbacks, conflict, and tragedy.
Something Like Summer tells Ben’s story, as he experiences passion with closeted jock Tim and love with steady flight attendant Jace, and how these emotions and connections change them all and keep changing them; then the second book tells Tim’s story, revealing all the things Ben didn’t know, and the third book tells who Jace was before, and after, he met Ben. Further books expand on characters around them, but the core is the funny, amazing, heartbreaking story of Ben, Jace, and Tim.
Brilliantly and evocatively written from start to finish, and another triumph for master narrator Kevin R. Free.
I'm hooked from reading the first book. Have to read the others one now. Treat yourself and go down these adventures with great characters that develop and you care for over time.
love my dogs, mystery, history, and thrillers. make and soup and bake; ect
they kept my attention and it was a good story and light-hearted funny but also kind of a
Easy to read with pleasure book that I also picked up the audio for to allow for more enjoyment and flexibility. Narrator was able to maintain clarity while expressing appropriate emotions in his voice. Some dialect and inflection was used to achieve a high quality audio book adventure. Most enjoyable.
Predictable and saccharine, Something Like Summer, might be a good read for a late teens gay boy who wants to be assured that everything will turn out OK. But there are so many weaknesses to the story that it's hard to get involved with the main character.
enjoyed listening to the story. It had substance with each of the characters. which character was well developed and thought through from start to end.
I got this book on a whim, wanting something light hearted and entertaining for a summer drive. I quickly feel in love with it! So many feelings of love, lost and found. It brought back many memories of my own past loves that I had tucked away. Can't wait to check out some of the authors other books!
