College life, fun nights out, guys everywhere—Adam thought his life was perfect…
Until he met Tork.
Green-haired Tork creates origami models and reads Dickens. He lives in supported housing, and he is absolutely not impressed by money.
Adam and Tork come from opposite worlds, but even as Adam fights it, the attraction stays strong.
Will Tork win the battle to understand his past and be well? Is there another Adam beneath that polished surface? Can they overcome their differences, and will there be dancing at midnight?
Find out what happens in a year of Adam, Tork, and Dickens the cat.
Sequel to The Invasion of Tork but can be read as a stand-alone.
“He was not going to be an outsider tonight, though, because he had the world’s best boyfriend, he had Dickens the cat, and he had a family just waiting to know him.
Tonight, there were no rules.”
This. This is why I wanted to a sequel with Tork and Adam (ask and you shall receive by the way). I felt so invested in these two characters, that I had to make sure they were going to be ok. It wasn’t easy and it didn’t come without tears and breakdowns, but they made it and now I feel all happy and warm.
I know Adam is supposed to be an “unlikeable” MC. Not to me. Tork has my heart, but in this book, Adam is the star and I loved him so hard! He is whiny, he acts all superior and he admires himself in the mirror (because he’s awesome). But he always comes for Tork. He never stops being devoted to him and he always picks him up when he falls. Also, he resets his goals and finds purpose and I believe that this character growth, considering his environment and young age, is so very beautiful.
Tork and Adam are amazing together. The epilogue is all kinds of awsome and the writing always speaks to me.
P.S. For some reason, when I thought of Adam, he was always this ridiculous Ken doll image. The gorgeous guy on the cover set everything right. Don’t I feel like a perv? Yup. Oh well…
