I was debating whether this story was going to be too angsty and triangle ridden for me... But I can honestly say that I have already fallen in love with these boys already. I'm not sure how this is going to go, usually I like a more clear cut romance, but I hope he ends up with Declan right now and I'm looking forward to the adventure. :) Thanks for posting your work

I am hooked! I know you published this a few years ago, but I hope you still are able to reviews of on this great story. I was a little confused by the dialogue in chapter one as to who was October, Seth and Jake (since the reader does not know his name yet). I am hoping that Seth makes more of an impact in future chapters since he was revealed as such a strong and pivital character in the first few paragraphs of chapter one. Yet, you have not provided a name of a celebrity that illustrates how you envision him. I hope he is not dropped in lieu of Declan. I love image of Van H. For Jake. I could not get a sense for him and I can now see he is darling. Declan's image is perfect and close to how I imagined him. I would love the links you have for your October character because the googled images I found did not do him justice as the beyond beautiful teenager as I see in my head. Since I just finished chapter five, I hope you continued to rely how you see the characters including Leo, Andrea and Brie. Usually I like to always leave it up to my own imagination, but the "Jake" image helped so much that I am having fun seeing what was in your head when you created "your boys". In regards to your writing...well all I can say at this point is that I hope you have more of your work out there because I would buy it!

You are an exceptional writer. This literally gave me chills and nearly drove me to tears.

You. You are just so awesome. I loved the whole story and the concept and the boys and everything about it.
I don't really know what to say. I know this was last updated in 2009. My friend just recently suggested I read this and I can truly say that I agreed and accepted to read this story.
I felt like the whole journey through the story was worth it. And only few stories could ever be warranted that standard and compliment.
It was human. It was real. It wasn't a sappy love story that was so cliche it'd make one hurl. I loved every minute of it, even if I bawled and cried my heart out. Thank you so much for making this story! :D

I love you too much. I love you, I love you, I love you, I f*ckin love you! I've finished reading this story ages ago but when I saw a printed copy of your story in my room (I kind of printed chapter 16-20 because I couldn't use the computer at that time; hope you don't mind) I came back. I came back because this was beautiful, and amazing and powerful and damn it, do you hear that scream? That scream is a scream of joy and love and wow, can you marry me? Haha, sorry, I couldn't hold in my thoughts. I can't hold in my thoughts. I know I've already reviewed this but reading it again, I got the same rush I had from reading it for the first time, that same crazy rush that left me grinning and high for more. I want to read this over and over again until my eyes fall heavy and shut. Kiss me?
Haha, anyway, I'd also like to say that I got some of my friends to read your story as well! They got interested after seeing the copy I had. They love it. Really, thanks for writing, man! Hell, thanks for existing. Will always love you and this story and October and Jake and Declan and Seth. One of the best, I swear.

Did I mention that I love the fact that no one dies and yet your characters still have issues and shit? I guess I've just got too into too many stories where they kill off a character right at the end. It makes me sad D: Happy endings - beginnings - are awesome and you're awesome to write them and this story's awesome and I thank the God that I don't believe in that I stumbled upon this one. Keep being awesome- shouldn't be hard; just breathe and pump oxygen to cells and drink water and shit, cos you're awesome enough as you are and any more awesomeness would put me down to the social hierarchy of a slug. And slugs are cool and all, but I wouldn't wanna be one. Leaves and stuff for meals. Ick. Though if I had a cape, that'd be cool. A flying slug. I could terrorise children. Goodie. Urm, right-o. Anyhow. Take care. I'll stop now. Fuck, there's a reason that I don't talk to people after 11. I don't think I'm cut out for this reviewing malarkey. But this story? So unbelievably worth it. Xxx

Fuckity fucking fuck. Wow. That was just...amazing. Brilliant. Genius. I'm usually a silent reader (guilty as charged) but I just had to write this and say how fan-fucking-tastic this is. I loved how they all got their happy beginnings in the end, yet there were still unresolved problems; like Leo and Brie and October's issues that hadn't been fixed and it just made it all so realistic that I cried and laughed and interacted with this so much. I also loved how Jake was beautiful AND smart *lovesick sigh* I had so much more to say, and I swear I'm more eloquent than this normally but it's 3am and I've spent all night reading this from start to finish, and I'm typing on my iPod which I hate doing cos my fingers don't agree with the touch screen keyboard so really, my brain is mushy and icky. I would use paragraphing but I'm scared of what the "return" key might do on this contraption. Super congrats on the A's for your AS's. My results come back soon and I'm genuinely expecting C's. Anyway, I'm rambling about things you probably don't care about, so sleep. Yes. I think ima gonna get me some of that. Right. Bye-bye! Keep up the awesome work, become an author and wrote lots of beautiful boy love books, yes? Yes. Kthnxbai. Xxx

October's last words made me melt. Fvck your story was orgasmic! I swear! You're characters were beyond epic, hot, and sexy; You lead us into a deep spiral of emotion and drama; You reeled my mind with the damn events that left me biting my finger in awe and excitement; the way you described each one of the hottest boys I've ever read about turned me on, and you do not know how many times I burried my head in a pillow to stop a scream-fitting glee that would've been accompanied by an ear-splitting grin. Epic. Totally Epic it turned me on. You're writing style isn't just simple and clean, it was sexy damn it. Utterly mouth drooling.
God, I can't believe it but I even have a crush with one of your characters (Declan)! A frigging crush! With a story character! Even books have yet to drag me down to that level. But damn it, your characters were just so likeable it was hard to resist the charms. God I'm so happy all of them ended up with the right people. Seth and Declan are just damned meant to be. Don't even get me started with October and Jake. They. Are. Perfect. Perfectly f*cked up and perfectly good together! What makes it all the better is just how wrong but so right their relationship is. Christ! Why was this so amazing! It's 3 in the morning and I can't sleep because of how you made me feel with this! Hangover. And the name October, it's nice. Makes me want to name my kid October if I ever do get one... Lol.
Finally after a long rollercoaster ride, I'm able to rest )) wew. I have this feeling that I don't want it to end yet, but totally happy it's completed. A sense of both loss and satisfaction. Oh the contradictory. I'd love to read more stories from you. Actually, I'll share this to my friends. Hope you wouldn't mind if I printed a copy to hand it out to them. They don't usually read unless it's written on paper. Lol. Thank's anyways. Hope to see you soon!

You know, no matter how many times I re-read this, it still gives me goosebumps. It's one of those things that you read and go "Wow". The talent you have is both incredible and inspiring. I don't think I've ever read a story with so much emotion and told with so much conviction and sureness as if the story weren't a work of fiction but a biography. "This is Jake's life" and not once did it let my mind stray. I was completely captivated by this, from start to finish, i always am. In fact i spend most of my time reading this story as you have quickly come to be my most influential muse and largest source of inspiration.
I could go on to praise this story for every small detail of it's wonderfulness but i think even if i did that my praise wouldn't be enough to express how personally connected I am to this story and through it, to you. I do hope you continue writing in the future so I may be able to continue reading your writing.
Maybe, if you have the time you'd like to read my story? I know it isn't at the same emotional level that yours is but you have been my biggest influence in writing it (I'm not sure if that is noticeable or not). It is called "Love at First sight." If you would like to saunter over and have a lookk I'd be honored to here your opinion on it. Anyway, that's enough sucking up from me.

i really love ure stories.
| Guest chapter 32 . 7/14/2012
I can honestly say, this story pissed me off for so long that I was happy for it to end. They finally put all their fucking angst and drama behind them (for the most part) and moved on to green pastures. Sole reason that I was happy. This story was pretty great, and I loved the way you wrote it with all it's ups and downs, twists and turns. I love the names of the characters, as well as the characters themselves. It was depressing how everyone basically had to be torn down in order to be lifted up to his full potential. Also, the amount of detail told throughout the story about the emotions and the insights you've given were well written and etc. It was also great how each character had a real background and issues, as if they were alive/real. Though, there were many moments when their drama was almost too much too read.. Overall, it's a great story.
Good luck with life and writing, and everything else.

I love that things are unraveling and that the guys are finally getting to know each other.
| j chapter 32 . 6/17/2012
I never thought I'd finish this story. That isn't meant as a criticism, it's just that like for at least one other reviewer, it just wasn't my type. Not to say that it isn't good or well-written, but the drama seemed way too overwrought. Maybe it's just my high school being strange in that there wasn't really a prominent social hierarchy, but it was exasperating seeing image be so important, so much so that Jake felt compelled to change drastically just for three guys that (didn't really) screw him over. (Although it was nice seeing him kind of question his change).
Anyways, as I kind of said before, I wanted to stop reading multiple times throughout the story. Several nitpicky things bugged me, like every single student in the school being gorgeous, and reading the emphasis time and time again on their appearance. The plot seemed over the top at times, and I found myself rolling my eyes more than once.
That's not to say that I didn't find it interesting, though. For all the annoyances I had, I found equal pleasure in the characters. I don't want you to take this review as an insult or whatever - I admired the way you tackled topics like gay-bashing and coming out and all that. Many lines were clever and made me laugh. Having noticed that you wrote this about 3-4 years ago as a teenager however, I'm curious to see how much you've improved, given that the writing is already pretty good.
