Yearning Young (Burning Britely #2) by Deidre Huesmann
5 out of 5 stars
Yearning Young is the second book in the Burning Britley series written by Deidre Huesmann and it’s the second book that I have read by this author. The characters were well written and the storyline was different with self-discovery and self-acceptance we also have strong friendships and families and also dysfunctional, chaotic families and friends.
We met Jeff and Braeden in book two and this story is told from Braeden’s POV. Braeden is a good guy who is confused and trying to figure out who he is.
Braeden’s never had to question anything before. He’s always been popular, always had everything handed to him, and always been straight. Then he met Jeffrey Young. Quiet, studious, analytical a guy.
Now he’s questioning everything. Like if he can handle his pill-abusing mother and ruthlessly enabling father much longer. If he’s protecting his siblings out of selfless motivations. If he belongs with Jeff, now his boyfriend. Jeff’s less-than-straight friends are skeptical of his sexuality as well, which isn’t assuaging any of Braeden’s fears.
As their connection deepens quickly Braeden is asking himself if he is supposed to be with a guy.
This is a great read…
