“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. However, as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.
Today’s selection and book I’m excitedly awaiting is:
If This Gets Out
by Sophie Gonzales & Cale Dietrich
Young Adult – Contemporary – LGBTQ
December 7th 2021 by Wednesday Books
“If This Gets Out is an absolute showstopper! Equal parts edgy and adorable, this bright, joyful book has everything I look for in a queer YA romance.” —Phil Stamper, bestselling author of The Gravity of Us
Eighteen-year-olds Ruben Montez and Zach Knight are two members of the boy-band Saturday, one of the biggest acts in America. Along with their bandmates, Angel Phan and Jon Braxton, the four are teen heartbreakers in front of the cameras and best friends backstage. But privately, cracks are starting to form: their once-easy rapport is straining under the pressures of fame, and Ruben confides in Zach that he’s feeling smothered by management’s pressure to stay in the closet.
On a whirlwind tour through Europe, with both an unrelenting schedule and minimal supervision, Ruben and Zach come to rely on each other more and more, and their already close friendship evolves into a romance. But when they decide they’re ready to tell their fans and live freely, Zach and Ruben start to truly realize that they will never have the support of their management. How can they hold tight to each other when the whole world seems to want to come between them?
A queer boy band romance.
My hidden inner boy band stan is screaming. My inner shipping fangirl is screaming.
Let’s face it, I am just a big pile of mush for this book already.
I’m already shipping these two and hope they can work everything out (but I’m sure they will!)
Yes, I need a HEA so badly! (But I’m confident they’ll get one 🙂 )
This sounds like it’s going to be a great story! Hope you love it!
Thanks, I definitely hope it’ll live up to my (admittedly super high) expectations 🙂
