Yearning Young, Burning Britley Book Two, by Deidre Huesmann is the second book in this series and is in Braeden’s point of view as where book one was in Jeff’s point of view.
Braeden has always been popular, always seemed put together. Behind the scenes Braeden is dealing with a mother who abuses pills, a father who enables his mother, and Braeden always protecting his siblings. Jeff comes into his life and Braeden falls. His falling for Jeff caused him to be expelled and his less then understanding friends not wanting to understand sexuality and his relationships with Jeff. All the negative is not helping the fears Braeden has venturing into the unknown with Jeff. Quickly things heat up with Jeff and they get closer, which only brings more questions and fears with Braeden.
This is a book and series that is raw and a coming of age about two boys learning about each other and guiding through a new relationship that many don’t or won’t understand. I simply loved diving into the world of Jeff and Braeden, the only issue I had was the book was not as long as I would have liked. I like a lengthier story when I feel such a connection to the characters and the storyline. This is a well written book that I highly recommend.
