1) I truly loved this story! It’s a gay romantic comedy that stays away from all expected clichés. Mason and Terry are gorgeous characters in how unique, quirky, and well rounded they are, and the supporting cast is just as impressive. The romance feels very natural and believable, the humor is subtle but powerful, and although there is character growth, the protagonists manage to stay true to who they are. Summer Lessons made me laugh and then ripped my heart out and made me cry, only to return to light-hearted humor. It offered a lot more than I would have expected from a romantic comedy and I loved every second of it.

a Winter Ball novel
Mason Hayes’s love life has a long history of losers who don’t see that Mason’s heart is as deep and tender as his mouth is awkward. He wants kindness, he wants love—and he wants someone who thinks sex is as fantastic as he does. When Terry Jefferson first asks him out, Mason thinks it’s a fluke: Mason is too old, too boring, and too blurty to interest someone as young and hot as his friend’s soccer teammate.
The truth is much more painful: Mason and Terry are perfectly compatible, and they totally get each other. But Terry is still living with his toxic, suffocating parent and Mason doesn’t want to be a sugar daddy. Watching Terry struggle to find himself is a long lesson in patience, but Mason needs to trust that the end result will be worth it, because finally, he’s found a man worth sharing his heart with.
