Leo Ware may be young, but he knows what he wants. And what he wants is Will Highland. Snarky, sophisticated, fiercely opinionated Will Highland, who burst into Leo’s unremarkable life like a supernova… and then was gone just as quickly.

For the past miserable year, Leo hasn’t been able to stop thinking about the powerful connection he and Will shared. So, when Leo moves to New York for college, he sweeps back into Will’s life, hopeful that they can pick up where they left off. What begins as a unique friendship soon burns with chemistry they can’t deny… though Will certainly tries.

But Leo longs for more than friendship and hot sex. A romantic to his core, Leo wants passion, love, commitment—everything Will isn’t interested in giving. Will thinks romance is a cheesy fairy tale and love is overrated. He likes his space and he’s happy with things just the way they are, thank you very much. Or is he? Because as he and Leo get more and more tangled up in each other’s lives, Will begins to act like maybe love is something he could feel after all.

*** Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie in exchange for a fair and honest review. ***

I want to put a disclaimer on this review. There are many things I won't read about, or hate to read about and unexpectedly this book included several of them: Teenage boy MC (and it's only his POV), Cheating, No HEA, Age Gap when it's with a teen.

I loved Book 1 and especially loved Book 2. I knew going into this book that Leo would be young but I was thinking towards the end of college not the start.

Book 3 sees Leo go to college in NY because of his crush on Will. Leo's a romantic and thinks that once he's in Will's proximity that he'll suddenly be interested and will fall in love with him.  Instead Will wanted nothing to do with him and encouraged him to screw around.

But Will being the self-centered person he is didn't stick to that decision and instead played games with Will, giving him false hope.  In Book 1, I thought Will was annoying but thought he could become someone that I empathized with. I did not.

I think plenty of people will enjoy this book. And the author certainly knows how to write a story.
