On the Right Track by Sam Kadence

Ryunoski “Ru” Nakimura knows all about the trappings of fame. Expelled from a boy band for coming out as gay, he still wants to continue his career in music. Too bad his ex finds nothing better to do than exploit their relationship in the press, so Ru leaves California behind to lie low in Minnesota for a while.

Adam Corbin attends a Minnesota high school and wants to coast through as a typical student. He’s friends with an openly gay student, Bas Axelrod, but while Adam plays football, he also stays away from much socializing. Blending in and not outing himself has been easy because he’s never really been seriously interested in any of the guys he’s encountered.

When Adam meets Ru in a library, Adam begins to think he’s found that special young man who might make it worthwhile to just be himself. And for Ru, Adam looks like someone he might trade his fame for, if they could be together. Ru and Adam will both come to realize that courage and love must go hand in hand if they are to have a future.

I Luuuuuuuuurve this book. Seriously, these are my boys! I really enjoyed the dynamics between the two guys. Adam is so sweet and shy and I want to just gobble him up. Ru is trying to break out of someone else's mold and be himself. They have some struggles along the way, secrets that can't be hidden, and hearts to heal. These two seem so different from each other, the just came out rock star, the good boy next door who's scared to be out. Neither of them really sure how this budding relationship will work, especially when jealousy from outsiders comes into play. I loved every minute of this, and hope you do too. It's a really well written story who helps you look a little deeper at how things go. Everyone deserves to be happy! I hope this gets out there, especially to the kids that need it. So that they might have a little more hope that everything can get better.

5 smooches for On the Right Track and a desperate plea for a story for Bas. <3 Pretty please!!
