Summary

I love him. And I’m pretty sure he loves me back...even though he’s straight. 

When I first met Carter King, I knew he was something special. I imagined us being together, and we are, but only as friends. Best friends! I’m trying to be cool with that, even though I know he has secrets, and there have definitely been mixed signals. I don’t want a crush to ruin what we already have. Then again, if there’s any chance that we can be together, it’s worth the risk, because Carter could be the love of my life. Or he might be the boy who breaks my heart. 

Straight Boy is Jay Bell’s emotional successor to his critically acclaimed Something Like... series. This full-length novel tells a story of friendship and love while skating the blurry line that often divides the two.

It’s good

A good story and is quite relatable to me as a young gay man but the story does feel a bit disjointed between the first and second halves

Still a good novel though

Enjoyable, with some great moments

it does feel a bit like two separate stories just squashed together at times though.

Fantastic slow burn story with fantastic narration

So burnt out on the typical M/M books....what a freaking delight this book turned out to be. Absolutrly EVERYTHING was about the story. Loved this so much. Narrator could not have been better...already knew that from TJ books. This book is a must have! Jay Bell is never fluff. Feelings...uggg!

Entertaining but dark

I am a huge Jay Bell fan. This story however was a bit darker than I usually like. It is like all of his books well written. There were just some parts where I got very upset at the characters very unbelievable reactions and decisions.

Favorite

Favorite in the series. Excellent, hand ringer. Kirt Graves’ narration made the story double intense. Highly recommended!
