    Great characters trapped in small town🏘

    🌈Small-town teen braves hatemongers to be true to himself: inspiring😍 I could not put down this moving continuation of Truman's story and read it in one sitting.. Young Truman debuted as a high school freshman in Big Love, another great Rick R. Reed MM romance based in a high school in a small Ohio town. Truman first exhibited his bravery in Big Love, and, though it's not necessary to fully enjoy this story which takes place during the fall of his senior year, I recommend reading the earlier standalone as well. Truman is the star of the book, longing for Mike, a boy who's new in town and apparently unobtainable and uninterested. Truman is so brave because he's often terrified or hurt by other people's reactions to his unique style and attitude yet he pushes through his fears to earn respect and acceptance. He's got some great people in his corner, most particularly his mother Patsy and a mentoring teacher. The social setting of the story helped elevate this book out of the ordinary for me. Truman and his friends are struggling, working class people, with few hopes for more than a high school education, from a Rust Belt town. I read alot of MM novels; though many deal with small-town prejudice, few broach the issue of life on the lower margins and the economic and social disappointments that can contribute to the rage vented against those who dare to be different and special like Truman. I give Reed high marks for creating a love story with complex, flawed characters. So many emotions and, in the end, a young man who risks even a budding relationship to stand in his own truth. Thanks to publishers NineStar Press and NetGalley for providing an advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

    Bigger Love and All The Drama Ensues

    Rick R. Reed's "Bigger Love" is a sequel/companion to "Big Love." You do not need to have read the preceding novel, yet there are enough winks to the other novel that it can be fun to read both. This story follows Truman through the beginning of his senior year of high school. He's quickly pulled into the school play and drama ensues, particularly as it comes to Truman's love life. He quickly develops a fascination with the new boy in town, Mike. The two have enough opportunities to interact to show why they like each other, yet it still feels like a sudden shift into their relationship. It's a fine romance, it just flew by.
