Only Mostly Devastated by Sophie Gonzales

OH how I loved this book…let me count the ways!

Thank you Wednesday Books for my gifted copy in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: Summer love…gone so fast.
Will Tavares is the dream summer fling―he’s fun, affectionate, kind―but just when Ollie thinks he’s found his Happily Ever After, summer vacation ends and Will stops texting Ollie back. Now Ollie is one prince short of his fairy tale ending, and to complicate the fairy tale further, a family emergency sees Ollie uprooted and enrolled at a new school across the country. Which he minds a little less when he realizes it’s the same school Will goes to…except Ollie finds that the sweet, comfortably queer guy he knew from summer isn’t the same one attending Collinswood High. This Will is a class clown, closeted―and, to be honest, a bit of a jerk.
Ollie has no intention of pining after a guy who clearly isn’t ready for a relationship, especially since this new, bro-y jock version of Will seems to go from hot to cold every other week. But then Will starts “coincidentally” popping up in every area of Ollie’s life, from music class to the lunch table, and Ollie finds his resolve weakening.
The last time he gave Will his heart, Will handed it back to him trampled and battered. Ollie would have to be an idiot to trust him with it again.
Right? Right. 

Need a feel-good book? THIS IS IT! GOSH I loved this book and read it so fast because it was so dang good and oh my gosh I just didn’t want this book to end! Think of an LGBTQIA version of Grease. Summer lovin’ turned to every day reality. The characters were lovable and relatable too. It’s freaking adorable, emotional, and had a wonderful ending! It’s not graphic in it’s sexual content at all (something I have seen people ask about). It’s just so dang cute.

5/5 Stars
