Will can't believe his shy chipmunk just up and moved. Through the meddling of Jason's sisters and a best friend who lives in White Pine, Will chases Jason to White Pine. Will they be able find the connection in White Pine where they couldn't at home?
This story really didn't work for me very well at all.
There were just so very many characters touched on that the book felt more like a trip through town, introducing you to everyone to make sure that you're caught up, so I actually got very few 'feels' from the story of Will and Jason.
Yes, I did like both Jason and Will; however, I didn't really feel like I got to know either character more than superficially to become invested in them, let alone to see their supposedly deep feelings.
It didn't help that Jason and Will have their first date, then the book immediately skips forward to their fourth date, without letting us experience any of that time spent bonding and Jason getting comfortable with Will.
Then on that fourth date, we're told that Jason will explode if Will doesn't touch him soon, which felt like a complete personality shift, without getting to actually *see* what events brought about the very sudden change.
And if I'm being honest, I was a bit more interested to see what trouble that Jason's brothers Winslow and Sparks, the twins, were going to get themselves into.
So this one rolled in at around 2.5 stars for me, mostly due to the lack of time invested in showing the reader how the relationship really progressed in enough detail to make me root for them and care.
