Trent is a swimmer, a college jock: tall, tan, blond, all muscles and friendly behavior. Jason is a goth punk, black dyed hair, pale skin, slim and with far more jewelry on then necessary. They are an unlikely couple... but they are a great couple.
After an appetizer about these two young boys the author gave us many years ago, he finally went back and developed it further into almost a complete story with happily ever after. I’m not giving it a 100% completion mark, and in this case is a good thing, because Trent and Jason are young, in college, deeply in love and very cute, and I think the author can tell us more and more about them and it will be still not enough.
From facing the first Valentine’s Day, to the summer break, to their first apartment together (almost), to the chance of meeting each other parents, we follow Trent and Jason during their routing. That is another thing I loved of this collection, it’s not really a story with a beginning, an apex and an ending, it’s more vignettes on college life and on a deep love that is blossoming between these two: I can easily see them get out of college, pursuing their career, but being still together, building an odd but happy family (odd because I think Jason will not change much, and having a goth dad can be an odd thing…).
