Do you believe in love at first sight?
Corey Ellis sure doesn’t. Oh, everyone around him seems to have found their happy ending, but he’s far too busy to worry about such things. He’ll have plenty of time for romance after he survives his last summer before graduation. So what if he can’t get his former professor, Jeremy Olsen, out of his head? It’s just hero worship. And that’s the way it should stay.
Except that this summer, bi-gender Corey—aka Kori—is interning at Phoenix House, a LGBTQI youth center that recently hired an interim director. And because life is extraordinarily unfair, the director just so happens to be a certain former professor, now current boss.
Desperate to keep things professional as he and Jeremy grow closer, Corey makes a major mistake: he turns to his friends, Paul Auster and Sanford Stewart, for help.
But Paul and Sandy have some ideas of their own.
Set in the summer of 2016, Why We Fight is a celebration of queer life and being true to oneself… no matter the cost.
…and we came to an end to another amazing series of TJ Klune. Damn, will I miss these guys!
We know Corey/Kori from At First Sight series as well as from Bear, Otter and The Kid. In this book, we’ll learn more about him and his inner turmoil. As we’re used to by now from TJ Klune, from the very first page, he will bring tears in your eyes. This book is no exception. It was a fast read for me, as are all the books from this author.
Summer is here and Corey interns at the Phoenix House, a safe-haven for the LGBTQ youth. He’s preparing for his last year of university. What he didn’t expect is Jeremy Olsen. Corey has a secret crush on his ex-professor, Jeremy Olsen, so working near him—or as the substitute director of the Phoenix House, Jeremy says—under him, not an easy task. Jeremy also happens to be the son of Charlie/Daddy’s boyfriend, Robert. Corey/Kori’s insecurities don’t let him hope that there could be anything between Jeremy and him. But that’s not what Jeremy intends to do …
For the last time in this final book of the series, we’ll meet all the great characters. Nana, with her mysterious past. Paul and Austin, and it seems they can’t control their passion, and they just go for it regardless of the place, time, or ambiance. Helena Handbasket and Darren the Homo Jock King. As well as Charlie who’s in very happy relationship with Robert and also we get a glance into the Super Gay society.
The book is funny. I laughed out loud several times, but I also had tears of compassion for Kori.
TJ Klune has written another great story, guys. And as I always say: there are not enough stars in this universe to rate this book!
Enjoy and let’s hope one day we’ll see them again!
