Over the Top | Jonathan Van Ness

This was great on audio. JVN reads the book and I am not sure if I would have liked it as much if someone else had read it. JVN had quite a hard past - lots of trigger warnings. But he came out on top and continues to make strides to overcome his battles.

I love this cover. The book was pretty good too. I really do not like much romance especially YA but this was surprisingly fun.

Please tell me I am not the only one who spent half the book pissed at the Dad and the brother and the other half yelling at Tara. While this was a good book and I am glad I read it, I thank heaven I had the family I did growing up.

BBooks You are not alone....I yelled at her mom too! I also felt she left stuff out, granted her book her prerogative, but felt holes especially in the colleges part to the end of the book. 1mo

Starting this one today. My coworker says the second is better than the first one- I enjoyed most of the first one- I also usually do not read series books back to back as I get tired of the series pretty quick, but she promised that would not happen- here goes nothing 🤓📚
