Christopher Rush is not gay.
But after a breakup with his longtime girlfriend, he finds himself crossing swords with his best friend Jeremy Pratt. Who's also not...gay.
It was a one-time thing.
It didn't mean anything.
They like girls.
At least, that's what these boys of summer tell themselves as they pretend it wasn't more than experimentation. With only four weeks left before they leave town for college, Christopher and Jeremy awkwardly navigate their way through a series of unfortunate (or very fortunate) events. Often leaving them breathless, conflicted, and dressed in nothing but a pair of socks.
Because socks are less gay.
As their time together comes to an end, will Christopher and Jeremy accept that love doesn't discriminate, or will they put their swords up for good?

I absolutely loved this coming of age m/m story! Her debut is just perfect. It'd crass, funny, honest, and simply spicy! Michael did a fair job, there was some background noises that took away from some of the scenes, but overall I enjoyed it. I've reread this book four times and it's still as good as the first.
"Good book and fun narrator but..."
This is a really fun story and if you want to know more there are some good reviews on Amazon.
I want to talk about the performance. So let’s start with the good stuff. It was great to hear a narrator’s voice that is matching the age of main characters. Michael Mola has a potential to join Tremblay, Russo, James and Crisden in the top notch narrators’ first league.
Now on the the not so good stuff. The audio production is very amateurish. I think poor Michael had to record some the sections in his bathroom and I presume he had to open a window occasionally, to let some air and traffic noise in. Also I could swear that at one point I can hear a high school music orchestra practicing somewhere in the background.
The editing is less than perfect, and I am being generous here. There are sentences repeated twice when Michael had a 2nd go. You will also notice the mismatch between sound levels when Mike had to take a break (I am guessing to open the bathroom window ;-).
But don’t let my review put you off this book. It’s definitely worth a credit. If more of us buy it, next time Michael may be allowed to a decent recording studio, perhaps when Trembley is not using it.
