All The More Reason
I loved this book!!! I was looking for another good bxb romance book and I like a few other books by this author so I figured I'd give this a try, but I'm so glad I did. I liked how this book didn't only focus on the romance but it also illustrated just life and grief really well. I've read books where a parent(s) died, but they're usually not very realistic but I liked how well it showed in this. It showed the pain and grief and I loved how it showed the different feelings and getting adjusted as well as learning to accept, it didn't feel like Senn just got over it but it actually seemed REAL, and I loved that. I like how it also showed friendships with the other characters because there are a lot of times (in real life and in books) when the person gets so focused on love that they grow apart from their friends. Friendship was difficult of course at first, but I liked how they would still hang out and be there for each other.

Another thing I loved about this was the characters. They were unique and amazing in their own ways, and I loved Senn's friends. I was rooting for [person Senn ends up with] since the moment they met pretty much, but once he actually did let go of the other guy (not saying names in case someone who hasn't read the book yet reads this lol), I was really sad, but I think he made the right choice. I'm glad he was understanding about it, but it hurt me to see him hurt.
I loved how we got to see both Senn's problems and [love interest]'s problems. There are a lot of books that will be one character going through a ton of shit and the other person just constantly supporting them, but it's not mutual. But in this book, we got to see [love interest] help Senn through his grief and problems and emotions and just everything going on, but we also got to see [love interest]'s problems and fears. and the support and help were for both of them, which made their relationship stronger and more likely to last.
I loved the characters and the plot flowed smoothly. The grief was portrayed well and not just the character being sad for a few chapters but then suddenly and out of nowhere is now perfectly fine and accepts it, it flowed nicely and I loved that. I loved the relationship between Senn and him, and I like that there was conflict not only with everything going on but also between them because it made their entire relationship seem more real. This book was amazing, just like the others by this amazing author, and I highly recommend people to read this! It fulfilled the romance I was wanting to read, but also was just well-rounded and great overall!
