Series: Lorimer Real Love

Rating: 0 vote(s).

After years of bullying at school, 19-year-old Julian is depressed. He sees a glimmer of hope after meeting the similarly out-of-place Romeo at a party and sharing a kiss with him. The only problem: Romeo has always identified as straight and he hangs out with a group of intolerant guys. But as the two begin to fall in love, Julian finds strength he never knew he had. When Romeo's old friends come after the couple, a vicious fight puts both Julian and Romeo in the hospital. The two boys decide to take a stand for their right for respect.

Just Julian provides insight into the struggle against homophobia, reminding LGBTQ readers that they are not alone.

"Julian's life is turned upside down when, by chance, he meets Romeo at a friends party . . . Their story takes its tragic turn when Romeo's homophobic friends discover he is gay and show up to teach him a lesson. Read Romeo for Real for Romeo's point of view. I will not spoil the outcome of this book. Read it for yourself and see how this tale of star-crossed lovers ends. "
