Publication Date: April 30, 2020
Genres: MM High School Bully Romance
Hood River was supposed to be the change I needed.
A fresh start.
An escape from my painful past.
Better in every way.
I’m a popular guy. Approachable. I make friends easily.
Cool car. Nice clothes. Good attitude.
Everything will be fine.
School is school.
I’ll keep my head down until graduation and try not to stick out.
College will be here before I know it.
Yet my first day proves to be anything but easy.
The Hood River Hoodlums—our school’s most notorious group of bad boys—have put a target on my back.
Their leader, Roan, hates me.
He calls me Rat.
To him and his friends, I’m a loser who doesn’t belong at their school.
I could pretend I don’t care about their hate.
If only Roan wasn’t so hot.
He’s mean, cruel, and sexy as hell.
My nemesis is impossible to ignore…and a secret part of me doesn’t want to.
Here I thought being gay was the worst of my problems.
Turns out, being gay and crushing on your enemy takes the cake.
I am all about some delicious M/M, and Hood River Rat tickled my fancy in every single way. Enemies to lovers/frenemies to lovers fans,THIS is the book to read. GAH! Y’all this book was EVERYTHING. Yes, it was super hot and intense and I loved every minute because… Well, Hollis and Roan! I loved the fact that this was two super hot dudes, but honestly I tended to get so caught up in them as their characters, that their gender didn’t matter as much as their journey to love. I was so drawn into their story. I was mesmerized. I was speechless, reeling and warm in my little southern heart. Seriously, this book that will have me jonesen like crazy until I can get my paws on Little Hoodlum. I just want more from The Hood River Hoodlums world K. Webster has created. This delicious tale of stolen kisses and forbidden love by K. Webster is a must read for fans of M/M or really just fans of literary amazingness in general.
This story will hit you in all your feels. It’s more than just a bully romance. It’s about good people and a little rough around the edges people that haven’t had the easiest time of it, but they find camaraderie together. It was just poignant and heartbreaking and healing and perfect. Roan and Roux just plain devastated me at times, but Hollis and his open and loving family patched them back up, just like K. Webster did to my heart by the end of this story.
However there’s one little name that causes a flutter of sadness, and that’s Jordy. But, I am hoping and have a feeling like maybe that will work itself out in the next book. Please K. Webster 🙏🏻
Told in dual POV get ready to fall in love with Roan and “the Rat” and the rest of the characters in this book. Each one was an intrical part of making this book the amazing reading experience it was and I can wait for more of them in the next book.
