Présentation de l'éditeur

Raised in near seclusion by an agoraphobic mother, Davy Cooper’s social skills are almost nonexistent. Now that his mother has died, he needs to make friends for the first time in his life. He catches Gavin Walker’s eye, but the sexy, confident, bad boy hipster intimidates shy Davy so much that he throws away Gavin’s number every time he offers it.

When Gavin defends Davy from a rude guy, Davy begins to warm to him. However, with his limited experience, he thinks he and Gavin are too different, and anything more than a casual acquaintance will end in complete disaster.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful tale of opposites attracting. 28 février 2014
Par PrismBookAlliance - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
More than just the author attracted me to Trouble & the Wallflower. The first thing that drew me in was the cover. I don’t often mention covers, but sometimes one will stand out to me. The simplicity and beauty of the Leah Kaye Suttle cover kept me returning. It sets the tone for the book that follows. The second thing that attracted me to this title was the main character Davy. As a sufferer of social anxiety, myself, I was intrigued to see how that whole angle played out. I love that there was no magical fix. I love the Davy was still Davy even in the end. I love that Davy steeled himself and then put himself out there despite his fears.
Gavin… What can I say about Gavin? He was a little harder to grow to love than Davy was. I don’t know if it was the social anxiety thing, or if I just have a soft spot for characters with the name Cooper (Davy’s last name), but Davy stole my heart from the first page. Gavin took a little longer to gel for me. There wasn’t anything wrong with Gavin; I was just never sure of his intentions. For that matter, HE wasn’t ever sure of his intentions. Davy and Gavin were complete opposites and seeing how that dynamic played out was intriguing. I think it was handled very sweetly, even if Davy did get his heart squeezed a few times along the way.
Boehme has said that he is not a series writer, but if he were to want to change that, the secondary characters in Trouble would lend themselves well to further explorations. Sean and Deacon especially were fun additions to the crew. Nate… well he just needed to get over himself. In conclusion, if you are a fan of opposites attracting, bad boys, good boys, angst, family, and love, pick up a copy.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Two troubled young men who, together, make a much better whole. 6 mars 2014
Par B ME - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Davy is shy and socially inept because of his upbringing. Gavin has had a difficult young life and is making up for lost time with men, men, men. Davy is the General Manager of Bart's ice cream shop and Gavin and his friends come in so Gavin can try to woo Davy. Davy resists, Gavin persists - but is he serious? Davy happens to see Gavin in a club picking up and going to the bathroom with another guy - so not that serious then? Gavin is made aware of Davy having seen him and tried to rectify the situation. He saves Davy from an unpleasant incident - he keeps trying to link with him even if it is just to be friends. But they both know what Gavin wants - except when they are at the beach for a party Gavin again goes off with someone else. Strike two and Davy is heartbroken. Gavin again tries to make amends. They get to a point where they become intimate, Gavin gets satisfaction...and walks out. The end? Apparently not - how to make up for this one?
I have to say that during the first half of the book I was quite ready to just give up because although Davy came across almost true to character (but he didn't seem THAT socially awkward and where were the panic attacks that keep being mentioned?), Gavin came across as a douche that should be kicked to the curb and left there. Why Davy would give him chance number I don't know how many? It is beyond me. In the second half the book improves and if you can stick it out the story is quite a nice one. Finishing just too soon for my liking - I wanted to see more of there new life and situation and how it works. Because of the frustrating and teeth grinding first half I give this 3 stars because it redeems itself in the second.

Trouble and the Wallflower

By Kade Boehme

Four stars

I read Kade Boehme’s “Trouble and the Wallflower” on the heels of Jamie Fessenden’s “Screwups” (also four stars). I was struck by both the similarities and by the differences that made each of these books a pleasurable, emotionally satisfying read. I’m also interested that both books are by men, and are classic examples of the m/m genre.

Indeed, this brings to mind a comment made by one of my (straight, male) book club friends at our most recent gathering: “But aren’t those gay romance books all the same?”

My response to my friend at the time was, “Well, all landscape paintings are the same, aren’t they?”

So, let’s consider the landscape of the gay romance. I think one of the joys of this genre—certainly for me (a late-middle-aged gay man in a decades-long relationship with two teenaged adopted children—is the expectation that there will be familiar landmarks. But, as with every painting I see, I also expect to see unique features, attributes of style and detail, that make the work distinctive and unique.

Boehme’s “Trouble and the Wallflower” is set in Seattle, where the author lives, so he has no trouble creating a vivid sense of place. His two twenty-two-year-old protagonists are both orphaned, one by choice, one by death; and each of them is finding his way in this new freedom. (I confess, the absence of supportive fathers in both this book and Fessenden’s “Screwups” bugs me. I’m a father, so I guess it cuts too close to the bone.)

Outwardly, Davy and Gavin are opposites, the socially awkward shy-boy and the slutty hipster bad-boy. Gavin approaches Davy like he’s just another conquest to be gotten out of his system; and Davy resents and fears Gavin for exactly that reason. But Boehme’s carefully orchestrated story arc gradually reveals that in fact these two young men are far more alike than outward appearances would suggest. The stripping away of these young men’s defenses—barriers to their happiness in fact—is what builds the emotional power of the narrative.

Another essential thing that makes this book work is the way Boehme puts us into these guys’ heads and hearts. Gavin is kind of a dick—cocky, sure of his own allure—but Boehme lets us see the man behind the smug façade. Davy is sort of a prig, pathologically shy and fearful of embarrassment, but again there is more to him than that.

I am fascinated that Boehme writes his characters with a level of emotional effusion that one stereotypically associates with women writers. I love that—I love that male writers can refuse to accept the “guys hide their emotions” premise and really embrace the romantic side of the male psyche.

Because that’s where I find myself in these landscapes. Even at 59, with a loving husband and two kids, I am still that twenty-something struggling to find his place in the world, yearning for the emotional connection that will change my life forever.

It’s not the same reason women read m/m fiction; but it’s a good reason.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Kade does it again!!! 2 mars 2014

I finished this book hours ago and have been trying to come up with a smart, intellectual review that would help people know whether to buy or not. I have finally decided that I can't be smart and intellectual about it at all. I have to go a little Kade fan girl about it. This book is AWESOME ! Kade totally rocks this book. The emotions that he evokes are amazing. You really feel what the characters are going through. Davy is such a real person and has such real issues. You cant help but fall for him. Gavin, well he needs a little time to get to know the real him. As all Kades books are, this is a story...all of the characters tie into the story. Maybe if we ask nicely we can get Mr. Boehme to continue this story.
This is a wonderful book and I recommend it highly. It is quite steamy but not over the top. I appreciated the drama of Gangster County more but this story has its share. I do not believe you will be disappointed after reading this book. If you do let me know so I can tell you that you're wrong.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Well that went badly... 13 avril 2014
Par Luke Wickenheiser - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I don't know what happened. The first quarter of this book is pretty good. The bad boy and shy geek chemistry was really working and the writing was pretty sharp. But the instant they get together, the book takes a dive. Overly-lyrical, lovey-dovey, trite prose becomes the norm. Any problems they have take less than a page or two to solve. There are pages of switching perspective so that we get to hear how amazing and wonderful the other character is. The saccharine prose is really bad. I wouldn't recommend this book.
