Sequel to Yellowbelly Hero
Heroes at Heart: Book Two
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 liked this book, it was nice and sweet but I missed the strong emotional elements that were so beautifully made in Yellowbelly Hero. It gets a little more center in Yancy and Curt’s relationship leaving most of the darkness aside. It was nice to see that the ability of transmitting the feelings of the main characters remain. This book was a bit lighter and perhaps easier to read, I think most reader would appreciate that, for me it was a little disappointing but I still liked it a lot..
The plot was nice. I liked to be introduced to new character and to guess how they might react to the situation that was presented to them and how it might affect Yancy and Curt.
The relationship between the main characters was very sweet, the way they react to each other was very natural, but somehow they seemed to me a little younger than they were, it might be just my perception, but that didn’t take anything away from the story. In general I really enjoyed it and I guess I’ll keep reading the next book on the series.
