Only Albert

Love Me Tenor - Annabeth Albert

I avoid entertainers and YA in the books I choose to read in this genre. These MCs were finishing college age but they felt younger to me.  They were in a reality show about singers in a boy band. In the hands of any other writer, this would have been a hard 'no' for me.  BUT I like Annabeth Albert's writing style so I plunged ahead. What worked for me was the interaction between Jalen and Trevor. The moments when they alone shared past experiences, wants and fears were the best part of the book. The sex was sensual, it felt authentic to the developed characterization Albert had created.
