RELEASE DATE: February 25, 2017
Kyle and Jonathan were perfect for each other, the two halves that, once together, made a whole. And then one snowy night just before Parents’ Weekend on the campus of Hamilton University, Kyle drops a bomb: he’s breaking up with Jonathan.
Class Distinctions follows the couple through the stormy (in more ways than one) night that ensues. Why has Kyle suddenly decided to throw away something so precious and good?
The answers lie in their backgrounds, and will gradually come to light as a winter blizzard rages around the young couple.
Their tortured paths bring them to the covered bridge where their love had come to life on a hot summer day. But will the warmth of that memory and the heat of the love they once shared be enough to outclass the storm, and more importantly, bring them back together?
As I lie in bed thinking of what to say about this book, a thought crossed my mind to try to think of one word to describe it. I can’t do it. It was beautifully written and I cried through the whole book. First tears of sadness, then tears of happiness.
Kyle and Jonathan were so perfect for each other, or at least that is what Jonathan thought. Until Kyle dropped the bomb on a holiday weekend…he didn’t love him anymore. My heart dropped with this bomb. Jonathan had been so excited to see his man and set up their love nest for the weekend and that is the news he gets. Bless his heart, he holds it together for as long as he can, but when Kyle leaves, he weeps.
As the book goes on, we follow Jonathan and Kyle both in flashbacks of their lives from the time they met, the first time they kissed, and where that important meeting was located. We also find out the real reason Kyle has wanted to end things and it breaks your heart. Kyle is so sweet and so in love but he thinks he doesn’t measure up. And that’s all I can say on that. Jonathan is just lost because he feels like half of his soul is now gone. But a phone call from Jonathan’s mom sets him on a path to find out what really happened.
As you read this book, you cannot help but cry. Unless you’re made of stone. The feelings these boys have for each other is so sweet and tender and you want to jump in the book and fix whatever needs to be fixed to make things all better. It’s a new love but powerful. It’s a perfect fit for them. So why did Kyle want to end things? Read and find out. Bring a box of tissues with you when you read 😉. Another book I will definitely put away to read again.
