Review: You & Me by Tal Bauer (2022)

Heat Factor: Planning ahead never felt so good

Character Chemistry: Y’all. On the narrator side it’s a slow bi awakening this-new-friend-is-a-lifeline to oh-damn-I’m-actually-in-love-with-him while on the other end it’s CLEARLY an unrequited crush. I did a little happy dance.

Luckily he meets Landon, his son’s best friend’s dad, who encourages him to join the football booster club to repair his relationship with his son.
