Yearning Young by Deidre Huesmann is the second book in the Burning Britely series. The more I read about Braeden and Jeff the more I fall in love with them.

Braeden is fiercely protective of the people he loves and he shows that time and time again, especially with his siblings. He doesn’t have the type of parents all kids deserve and should expect to have. He’s still trying to get everything figured out, his life, how to take care of his siblings, how to deal with his parents and how to keep Jeff safe.

Jeff is so lucky to have the parents he does. You don’t need money if you have the love and support of your family and that is what Jeff has. His mother made me laugh out loud a few times, his Dad is stoic but you have no doubts on his feelings for his son.

I want more of this series and adorable couple.

Yearning You is the second book in the Burning Britely series and I became completely obsessed with it! Its such a beautiful coming of age story that gives you all the feels and then some!

This book is written in Braeden’s POV. He has so much going on in his life and it’s completely weighing him down. Jeff is his anchor. Their connection strengthens throughout the book but the challenges that Braeden faces make him question a lot of things. His home life is rough to say the least and Jeff’s friends questions his feelings towards Jeff. You can’t help but fall head over heals for Braeden and find yourself rooting for him and the issues he faces.

This is one of the most beautiful and poignant series I have read in a long time. This should definitely be on everyone’s must read list!

Yearning Young is the second book in the Burning Britely series. You really need to read the first book in order to understand the history of the characters. Yearning Young wraps things up so the story could end here, but I seriously hope there is another one because there could definitely be more.

OMG! I know in my review of the first book I said I wanted to know what happens in their future, but I was not expecting this book. When I read the synopsis, part of me wanted to walk away from reading this story because there were so many ways it could have gone and I wanted to maintain my illusion from the ending of the first book. (If there is another book, I’m just going to get it and not even read the synopsis, lol). But I had to satisfy my curiosity so I spent my day thoroughly lost in the world of Jeff and Braeden. I laughed. I cried. Basically, I had all the feels in a very short period of time. This book tore my heart to pieces and then put it back together. So, so good!!!!

Yearning Young is book two in the Burning Britely series  by Deidre Huesmann. Braeden and Jeff’s story continues in this easy to read tale.

Braeden has a lot going on and struggles to work it all out and get a handle on his feelings. He fell for Jeff quickly and very unexpectedly, which has him reeling. His home life is difficult, so all of that together is a huge weight for a young guy to carry on his own. I really loved how the author described his journey, from falling for Jeff, to working out what his next move would be. The emotions were first love at its most basic and real. I really engaged with these characters, and fell for them even more than I did in the first story. An impressive story that was witty, funny and soul touching. 5 stars

I really enjoyed Yearning Young, the second book of the Burning Britely series from Deidre Huesmann. I would recommend that you read the first book before you jump into this one, just to kind of have and idea where things are and who the characters are. This continues with the coming of age theme for Jeff and Braeden, only told from Braeden’s point of view this time. I really enjoyed that twist and seeing things from his angle. This does touch on several emotional and touchy topics that are often overlooked or not discussed enough among teens or young adults like they should be and like I mentioned in my review of the first book this would be a great tool to introduce the topic among classes or children of your own etc. I love how Huesmann keeps things realistic and raw without drowning out the the topics at hand, and yet she keeps the storyline at the forefront to keep the reader fully engrossed. I can’t wait to see what is to come next! Thanks for the emotional and thought provoking read Ms. Huesmann!

First I would highly recommend reading this series in order as this picks up after book 1 ends.
In book 1, we follow Jeff, and now we get to follow Braeden. He intrigued me in the first book so getting to to see more was welcomed.
While I can’t give too many details as this is best read as the story progresses, I just have to say how much this book made me feel. While I know this is fiction, it just brings to light that these things do happen in everyday life and some may not ever show they have a life like this behind closed doors.

This was a really great read.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yearning Young by Deidre Huesmann is a beautifully written young adult story about life and what it means to be different. This is the second book in the Burning Britely series. The emotions I had reading this story were very real and my heart hurt for Braeden. The story is from Braeden’s point of view and he is dealing with all the hormones of being a teenager and being “different” from others. One thing I love about Braeden is no matter what life throws at him, he always sees the good in the moment. This story is about friendship, loyalty, strength, weakness, and pain. It is one that I recommend all teenagers read that maybe one day they will understand the pain and suffering of other people’s actions.

Yearning Young, by Deidre Huesmann is the continuation of Burning Britely. This book is told from Braeden’s perspective, and I thought it gave a much deeper understanding to his situation. He has been the popular rich kid his whole life, and has now found himself expelled from school just before turning 18. He is terrified to come out to his family, since his mom and dad are both already unstable and borderline abusive. He feels obligated to stay in a toxic home, to look after his younger siblings, but when his sister urges him to leave, he begins to start questioning everything. He is torn between choosing his own happiness, and his family, who he always thought was the most important thing. This is a brilliant coming of age story and I loved it. It touches on the struggles a teenager has to face, as well as the added stress for those that are homosexual, or bisexual. The feelings and questionings they feel and comparing themselves to others. I highly recommend this book, and hope there is a 3rd book in the series!

Yearning Young by Diedre Huesmann a five-star read that you will fall for. This is the second novel in the Burning Britely Series, and I would wholeheartedly recommend you read them both as the first gives us one perspective and some background and then this one shows us the rest. There are a lot of complex issues dealt with in this series and the author deals so well, no matter what you feel this story will make you care. This may be wrote for teens but any age will get something out of it.
