Kurzbeschreibung

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.

Just wonderful. Not a “new“ story but described well in a really comforting and easy-to-read kind of writing.
Respekt dafür - absolut empfehlenswert!

I I can recommend absolutly everything Kade Boehme writes.
She always finds a twist to make the most common plot a special experience.
Her charakters are adorable and just troubled enough to be interesting. Nothing and noone is as it seems.

Just finished it and I am satisfied ;) although it is pretty predictable and for my taste a bit to less dramatic, it's a solid pice of entertainment literature.

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.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Cute story! 24. Juni 2017
Von Jenny Sliger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Davy grew up sheltered and with no social skills to speak of. Gavin is a bad boy who takes an interest in the shy Davy.

When I first picked up the book I almost put it down a couple times just because both guys were jerks in one way or another. Davy, because of his nonexistent social skills, avoids Gavin as much as possible yet there are times when he's a jerk that I wouldn't have pinned him as. Gavin is a playboy who keeps on screwing things up. There were some instances where I just wanted to smack him upside the head because I couldn't take his "mistakes" anymore. HOWEVER, I'm so glad I gave this story a real chance because once both guys pulled their heads out of their butts it truly was a good story. There were some twists that I totally did not see coming but once they did I realized that it all made complete sense.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Two troubled young men who, together, make a much better whole. 6. März 2014
Von B ME - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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 & the Wallflower
Kade Boehme

Kade Boehme has become one of my most favorite author as his books
always leave me wanting more.
If you want an emotional, and a sweet story, you have to read this delightful
story. Kade Boehme has become one of my favorite autos adds to my gotta have
lists, and he hasn't failed me once. In Trouble & the Wallflower we meet Davy
and Gavin who are opposites in many ways. But when you get down inside both of
these different young men all you want is their connection to one another is to
shine brighter than anything. And wow...does it ever!
Davy who has been sheltered by a loving mother who only wanted to love
and protect her only child. Her very actions have hindered Davy from vital social
connections that help us to connect to the people and world around us. I thought
Davy was unique in that he trust that initial inner voice when it really matters. As
the result we get to watch as Gavin slowly weaves around Davy’s troubled heart. It
is an emotional weaving that in reality heals a very emotionally battered Gavin.
Gavin is a young man who projects a tough free spirit. He never sets out to
deliberately hurt anyone. It is easy to see that Gavin reacts out of self
preservation, and that he reacts in the moment. Gavin’s grandfather Ray is a
treasure, and the relationship between them is so comforting yet painful as the
story progresses. Ray just wants Gavin to have someone to love him. Ray may not
know what drove Gavin away from his mother, but he loves his grandson
unquestionably. And Gavin’s mother is a whole other ball game. I was more than
ready to...well..it’s best that I leave that up to other readers imagination. The only
thing I will say is that Gavin’s mother did bring Oliver into Gavin world, and that
is a wonderful gift indeed. I absolutely love the supporting cast, and perhaps we
will see more of them in their own stories. One can only hope you know.....*S*
A couple reviewers stated that the story dragged, but I never felt that at all. I
never felt the story slowed nor was I disappointed. I yearn for that emotional
connection with MC’s in any book, and loved that connection in this book so very
much. I want to cry, laugh and get angry with MC’s as they journey through their
story. This story flowed beautifully, and I truly loved it. Kade Boehme has never
disappointed me with his creative force, and this one is an addition into my forever
keeper collection. Thank you Mr. Boehme for the journey, and I look forward to
reading the rest of your stories.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Sweet relationship-focused tale of opposites eventually attracting 20. November 2014
Von April - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Davy is the Wallflower. Trying to deal with social situations brings him near to panic attacks. He just feels lost and unable to figure people out because he was brought up in near-seclusion by a caring but agoraphobic mother. The last thing he thinks he needs is bold, brash Gavin trying to get his notice every time he and his friends come into the ice cream parlor where Davy works.

Gavin may seem to be at ease with people and totally confident, but people are complicated. He's trying to find his way in life, just like everyone else. And maybe he doesn't know it all, since his persistence with Davy isn't working no matter what he does. And, yes, Gavin continues for a while making mistakes, but hey--he's not perfect, but he's trying (and to be fair, Davy was sending seriously mixed messages). And all he wants to do is try and get to know Davy. But being such opposites, will this ever work out?

These characters are interesting and endearing enough to want to follow and see how things work out. It's a relationship-focused story, no car-chases or mass-murders, but relationships have enough crazy pitfalls, as we all know, and there's a fair amount of conflicts to overcome.
