Kurzbeschreibung

28. Februar 2014

Leaving home to go to university is an exciting phase in anyone’s life. One that’s full of new places, new friends, and new experiences. But Lewis is not prepared for the sudden and intense crush he develops on his out-and-proud flatmate, Max—given that Lewis had always assumed he was straight. Max starts dating another guy, and Lewis’s jealousy at seeing them together forces him to confront his growing attraction.

When Max’s relationship goes awry, Lewis is the one to comfort him and one thing leads to another. But after a night together, Lewis is devastated that Max wants to go back to being just friends. Lewis tries his best to move on and their friendship survives, but the feelings he has for Max don’t go away. He faces other challenges as he deals with coming out to his parents and needs Max’s support more than ever. But Lewis isn’t the only one who’s conflicted. When Max finally admits he cares for Lewis too, Lewis must decide whether he dares risk his heart again on being more than just friends.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I loved it to bits! GAH! 1. März 2014
Von Tinella - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book has overtaken my life for the last few days, and I don’t have the words to praise it enough!

I’m familiar with the author’s previous work, so I was expecting a sexy, fast-paced and soul-cheering read, but this book has exceeded all my expectations.

Lewis is a freshman starting his literature studies in Bristol. He shares a flat with three other students, and among piles of dirty dishes, instant noodles, and loads of booze he tries to find his own place in the new, adult world. He also discovers his own sexuality, very different to what he’s thought.

This story is perceptive, offering very real insight into the world of young students, their emotions and dilemmas, and the painful, often confusing act that is falling in love. Growing up in Not Just Friends is about little dramas, and more serious problems. It’s about trying new things, finding out shocking truths about your family, and losing part of your childhood innocence. But it’s also about putting your life into perspective against other people’s problems, learning to behave like an adult, hurting others and trying hard not to hurt them more, and moving on. Jay Northcote also tackles important myths about being gay, and how it can sometimes be perceived by peers.

This all might sound really serious, but this book is a heartwarming, very well written, light read with tons of pining and incredibly hot sex. Seriously, all the kissing and sex scenes in this one are hot! The events in this book will linger in your mind long after you put it down. You’ll remember your own youth, with all of its crushes, and grin like an idiot for the next few days!

I loved it to bits. A must-read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I have found a new happy place author to add to my list 18. August 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have found a new happy place author to add to my list. This is my second book from Jay Northcote and I am solidly in love with her boys. They are sweet, sexy, adorable and just a bit confused and conflicted enough for me to get lost in them. Twice now her boys have taken me out of a book slump and made me remember why I love to read the boys who love boys.

Lewis is starting his life at University. Moving into his flat and meeting his new roommates provides a complexity of personalities that surprisingly mesh well from the first meeting. When the straggler of the boys finally moves in, we meet Max. Max with the short blond hair and that certain something that tugs at Lewis. At first Lewis thinks it’s just friendship but after a few beers and shared sex stories, we learn that Max is into boys and Lewis starts to question his attraction to his flat mate.

"Lewis kept thinking about Max, his eyes and his smile, and the doubts and uncertainty they raised for Lewis. Questions he’d successfully managed to leave unanswered for the past couple of years reared up, but he pushed them away…"

I loved Lewis. I loved that he has always questioned his sexuality yet not dealt with it to do what he thought was right and then he meets Max, all hells breaks loose in the boys brain. He likes being around Max, they become fast friends playing pool and watching movies together but when Max begins to take an interest in another boy? Lewis knows that this boy, this flat mate, this MAX who lives on the other side of the very thin wall from Lewis can never be just a friend.

The boys in the flat were fun to read. The banter between Dean and Max has me laughing just thinking about it. Max was comfortable and confident in his sexuality and it showed in everything he did. From flirting with boys at pubs to simply taking a piss out of Dean when he needed it. The flat mates weren’t just fixtures hanging around, they had purpose to the story and they gave that extra life to it. But Max and Lewis, these boys are best mates and when Lewis decides he wants more, will Max let down his defenses so he gets a chance?

"Maybe this was a really bad idea, but Lewis couldn’t bring himself to care. He just wanted Max so much it hurt, and he knew he’d take whatever Max was offering."

I cannot say how much I adored this book without gushing over it. A bit late you say? Oh well. I am a fan of the friends to lovers theme. I love the UST that was through this book, it was done so well. I love that it was sweet but when you needed it to be dirty there was just enough of it. The boys and their struggle to get it right was what I needed and what I adore with the college boys. I even loved the bits of pop culture with the boy band teasing tossed in there and I really want to know if Lewis does indeed have what Max liked but Bruno lacked. Just saying…you know, Jay? You left that one out there and my OCD picked up on it.

Ahh…this is another book where I get the goofiest grin on my face going over my notes and highlights. Yeah, I am a sucker for the sweet gooey stuff, minor angst with a side of smut. I just loved this book! From first meetings, pool games and tables stuffed with socks, drunk kisses, runs in the rain and confessions via text message, Not Just Friends is another book I am adding to my must read when I need to feel good list.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Sweet Romance Without Too Much Angst 19. Juli 2014
Von Jessica - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Not Just Friends is perfect if you want to take a break from the drama, angst, and emotional roller coaster that is sometimes present in many m/m romances. While there is a little bit of conflict, the story mostly focuses on Lewis, a University freshman, becoming attracted to his flatmate Max and subsequently realizing he's gay and finally understanding why his attempts to be with girls, especially his previous long-term girlfriend, didn't do anything for him. They can't immediately begin a relationship, however, because (1) Lewis isn't out yet and isn't sure how to initiate anything with Max; and (2) while the two eventually do foray a little into romance territory, they're afraid it was influenced by Max's fresh breakup and a little alcohol and don't want to ruin their friendship by rushing into something that Max isn't sure Lewis is ready for. As the book goes on, we see Lewis trying to balance his growing feelings for Max against his promise to remain just friends. Along the way Lewis is faced with some family drama that further adds to his stresses, but with the support of newly found friends and his own quiet yet solid determination, Lewis forges a happy ending for himself that will leave readers content and satiated.

Max and Lewis are great for each other. Lewis's reticent, overall laid-back demeanor is the perfect contrast to Max's unabashedly outspoken personality. I loved watching their interactions: Max's cautious and subtle flirting and Lewis's surreptitious glances at Max when he thinks no one's looking, as well as Lewis's covert jealousy at other guys flirting with Max. Their relationship is handled very realistically and I loved how during the sex scenes, Max was very aware of Lewis's inexperience, going slow and frequently asking if it was okay to do something before he actually did it. It felt more realistic and was a sweet distinction that isn't present in many m/m romances. The other characters were enjoyable as well; it was easy to like the good ones and fun to hate the bad ones. The writing was engaging and, as I mentioned earlier, there isn't too much angst so the reading isn't heavy or laborious. Like another reviewer said, this does read very much like a slice of life novel with many scenes depicting things like parties, watching movies in the bedroom, and sitting around having conversations, but each setting did move the story further so they weren't irrelevant.

Not Just Friends is a nice, sweet read with two adorable main characters. And I know this has no bearing on the plot or substance of the story, but I just want to commend the cover designer for the gorgeous models and romantic sensuality of their pose. Okay, that aside, if you enjoy light, well-written novels with a University setting and/or m/m books that center around a character discovering his homosexuality then this is definitely a title you want to check out.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very sweet story, just too short 28. Februar 2014
Von ecole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This was a very sweet story! Two boys start university and are housed in a flat along with 3 other boys. One boy (Max) is out and proud and the other (Lewis) never considered himself gay, even though he realizes he has had crushes on boys before. Lewis becomes completely infatuated with Max but Max has been burned recently and doesn't want a relationship.
This book is more about the evolution of the feelings Max and Lewis have for each other and less about the sex. If you're looking for a book crammed full of hot sex, this isn't the one for you. There are a few scenes but they're subdued and tender. The focus is on Lewis, his family issues and coming to terms with who he is. There is not a lot of angst but it was enjoyable to watch Lewis grow up and mature.
My only complaint is that I feel like there were loose ends that should have been tied up. The story ends before there is any resolution between Lewis and his parents and that's a shame. The ending felt abrupt and I wish it had continued on so that I could see how it all worked out.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome read. I love Max and Lewis!! <3 17. Juli 2014
Von tracy c muth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Lewis and Max meet when they start Uni. They are flat mates along with 3 other guys. Max is openly gay. Lewis has suspected he was gay and was never quite sure, but when he meets Max, he is extremely attracted to him. Max and Lewis end up hooking up, but Max decides they should just be friends. Lewis tries to distance himself from Max. By the time Max decides he wants more than friendship with Lewis, will it be too late?

I loved this book. These guys were awesome together. They had such great chemistry and a good connection. I loved all the other roommates as well. Lewis and Max, just fit well together. I was sad to see their story end. My only complaint is I wanted more scenes of them as a couple. Maybe the author will write a novella for them. Fingers crossed ;)

This is my 1st book by this author, but it won't be my last. I wish she had more college aged books. This is my favorite age :)
