Yancy Bell, a book geek with a bladder problem, saved the life of suicidal gay jock Curt Donovan. But when Curt returns to college after the Christmas holidays pretending he doesn’t know Yancy, warning bells go off.
Has a frightened Curt decided the safety of the closet is preferable to coming out? A remorseful Curt comes knocking on Yancy’s door in the dead of the night. Yancy wants to help Curt find the courage to proudly be himself and pursue his dreams, but first Curt needs to come to terms with his past acts. Yancy can only hope their reunion ends in light, not darkness.
I enjoyed the first book of the series (Reviewed Here: Yellow Streak) and I hoped this story would improve, but unfortunately that isn’t the case.
In Yellowbelly Hero Yancy and Curt meet and begin the early stages of a relationship. Yellow Streak takes place after the winter holiday but Curt has been ignoring Yancy. Yancy is confused but gathers the courage to speak to Curt.
I liked the bolder Yancy but sadly it didn’t last long. It felt like he became somewhat of a doormat once they became involved. I did cheer when Curt faced his fears and came out of the closet to his jock friends, but I didn’t particularly like the way he treated Yancy.
Readers should know this is a serial so you can’t just pick up this book and get the whole story.
I’ll read the third book in the series and I hope Curt and Yancy get the HEA they deserve.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
