Saint Flaherty Series · What Boys Are Made Of

Review! Five Stars from The Novel Approach!

A couple weeks ago, in a fit of “I can do this!” I submitted What Boys Are Made Of for review over at The Novel Approach and crossed my fingers.

Lemme tell you, I am glad I did.

Barely a day later Lisa got in contact to let me know she’d love to read my book, and just this morning she sent me a notification that her review would be up today.

And holy shiz, what a review.

Five stars. Count ’em.

I am especially excited that her review confirms what almost every single review so far has said: this book is the one you can’t stop reading.

What makes this novel beautiful is the author’s prose. These characters are all written in flesh and blood, their world drawn in bleak and desperate lines. There is no romance or romanticism in the telling of this story, and it is not an LGBT novel; rather, it’s a novel with LGBT characters, and its heart resides in the misery that pervades.

I haven’t made this declaration yet this year, but What Boys Are Made Of is easily in the running for a favorite read of 2016. Here’s hoping for a repeat performance with Book Two.

!!!!!!!!!

Woah! Alright, I’ve had it. I’ve had my humbling moment, though I’ll admit, it came right after the “run around the apartment celebrating” one. Holy crap!

Go read the rest of the review here!
