I rooted for these characters and I cheered them on. I thought it was a very honest and believable story. Some of the characters' actions and behaviours surprised me and some were exactly as I expected and all were very faithful and relevant to the book. I thought the story flowed beautifully and everything that happened felt natural and never forced. My feelings for some of the characters changed and ebbed as the story progressed. I grew to like characters I'd disliked at the start of the book. That doesn't happen often if I dislike a character from the off that's usually it for me.
I thought the intimacy scenes were fantastic. I've read some YA and some NA M/M romances and I feel like this was a happy medium. I really dislike a total fade to black so I'm glad that wasn't the case.
I almost always automatically connect with female characters so it was refreshing for me to read a book and connect so much with a male lead. I saw a lot of myself in Luke. I love that the main characters were from such different upbringings. I've been craving the whole boy/girl from the wrong part of town thing for a while and it was done very faithfully here. I loved Luke's relationship with his mom also.
I thought the descriptions of the water, the sunsets and people's eyes were amazing. I've never surfed in my life so have no experience but when Luke was out on the sea it felt like I knew exactly what it was like, I was there with him. I love sports romance so almost instantly when I read Luke was a rugby player and a surfer I knew we were off to a good start. The fact he worked in a bookshop just sealed the deal, I couldn't not like this book. Caught Inside continued on its strong start right until the final pages.
I wish Jamie all the best with this release and will look forward to future books!
It's a very British tale - British leads, British setting, British understatement and British, 'let's get on with it and see what happens'. I liked the leads very much, pretty equally, and despite one being around a couple of years younger than my own son, and the other about 6/7 years younger, I didn't feel out of touch reading this and I did feel that these guys had something special, despite their young ages. They were both mature and both very decent and likable, despite the slight element of cheating in this.
In fact, I think I liked it all the more as they became friends first, had nothing in common, but were both open to learning about each other and each other's interests. There was an innocence about the leads that I loved, and that suited them and the tale very well. There was some sex in this, perfectly suited to the guys and the tale - sorry to repeat myself, but it was. I liked that neither jumped into a quick sha*, but that clearly, the attraction they were experiencing was more than just physical.
I also liked how real the tale felt and that I felt that these could be 'guys next door'. I even liked the ending, which I have to be honest and say is not how my perfect romance novel ending would ideally go. Again, realism crept in and the ending suited the leads - to have made it otherwise would have felt out of character for both guys.
Even at their young ages, I felt that these guys were in it for the long haul. I loved that both held back on admitting their feelings, which caused just the right amount of angst and heartache, but that it was clear from that that they realised that the future meant more discussions and fewer misunderstandings.
I enjoyed this tale so much that I contacted the author to ask if there would be more of the leads, but alas, she doesn't have any plans to write more about them, though they might pop up in the series. Though I don't really read MF tales these days, I would actually be interested in seeing how a certain couple in this pans out, as they were a mix of could-be-good-together, but-he-doesn't-deserve-her-yet.
This is a brilliant debut, and I'm grateful for the ARC I received for my reading pleasure.
When Luke decides to join his girlfriend, Zara, in Cornwall for the summer, the last thing he expects is to fall in love… with her cousin and best friend, Theo. But when Theo returns his affections, the stage is set for betrayal, heartbreak, and a lot of change…
From the exquisite writing, where the metaphors were so beautifully entwined in the fast prose that you had to look twice to realise they were there, to the quick pace combined with great character development, to the realistic and important plot, this was the best book I’ve read all year. The coming-of-age elements were sincere and heart-wrenching, the drama palpable, and the romance hopeful. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
