A Stella Review: When It’s Time (Go Your Own Way #3) by Zane Riley

Standard

RATING 5 out of 5 stars

In the New Adult series that began with Go Your Own Way, Will Osbourne and Lennox McAvoy must now face the challenges of a long distance relationship that will determine their future. Despite the fulfillment of his childhood dream, Will is suffocating in too-loud, too-dirty, too-busy New York City. Lennox, who has always relied on Will for guidance, is thriving in Boston without him. As Lennox embraces his promising new life and rediscovers old family, Will searches for a future of his own that won’t tear them apart.

When It’s Time is the third installment in the Go Your Own Way series by Zane Riley and it follows the relationship between Lennox and Will, the two of them will start college in a few weeks, Lennox will move to Boston and Will to New York. While Will thought and planned his future years ago, Lennox has never even thought college was a possibility for him and now everything seems unreal and confusing. The only anchor in his life is Will and the love they share.

I read the previous books in this series and I already knew how good the author is, so it wasn’t a surprise how much I loved this new release. I was waiting to learn more about these two young men and what life will have in store for them. I was curious to see if they were going to make it once college started. Most of all how they would make it. And just here the author surprised me, I wasn’t expecting the development I read.

As always the writing was superb, the reading flew easily and I was so caught into the MCs lives together and apart, I couldn’t put my Kindle down for a minute. I followed them to their struggles with new places to discover, new friends to meet, new dreams to fulfill (or not). The reason why the whole series is a huge success to me is how real the MCs story is, I found a connection with them since the first time I read about their lives, I felt their emotions clearly, I saw them hurting and be happy. I empathize with Will and Lennox for different reason but both of them took my heart.

I want to recommend the Go Your Own Way series, When It’s Time can’t be read as a standalone but give the series a chance, I’m sure it will be a beautiful journey for you too.

The cover art by Colleen M. Good is beautiful, it follows the style of the previous books and I really like it.

A Stella Review: With or Without You (Go Your Own Way #2) by Zane Riley

Standard

RATING  5+ out of 5 stars

With or Without You by Zane RileyIn the much-anticipated sequel to Go Your Own Way, high school seniors Lennox McAvoy and Will Osborne pick up right where they left off—navigating the tumultuous waters of a new relationship and dealing with Will’s disapproving father.

When a violent incident forces Lennox to give up his independent ways, he must come to terms with his past just as Will is grappling with his future. As Will’s college plans become reality, will Lennox have the courage to go after the opportunities he doesn’t think he deserves?

If you follow my reviews, it’s probably not a mystery I’m a devoted lover of Interlude Press books. Without a doubt Zane Riley  is one of their best authors. I fell in love with Go Your Own Way and this sequel was sublime. I anxiously waited for With Or Without You  and I can say Zane couldn’t have written something better. Now if I could only read the third book right this second it would be perfect.

The story starts where the first book ended. Will’s dad is finally back from the hospital, still recovering and still not liking Lennox at all. Lennox who is living (or trying to live) with Will, although the need to be back to the nasty hotel room his grampa is renting for him is strong, the place where he can escape from all the good things his life is throwing at him.

Will is rightly a little obsessed with college, he’s planning to move to NY while Lennox can’t see a future for him, or a future with his boyfriend. He is still wearing the ankle monitor from when he left the juvinile prison. But despite his pessimism, amazing events are going to present to Lennox.

Why I loved this book so much? First of all, the characters. Zane did an awesome work. The growth and the changes in Lennox and Will were clear, they are becoming strong adult who everyone should be pride of. They are only eighteen years old but Will is a force of nature and Lennox has seen so much in his life all his fears are naturally understandable. What truly caught my heart was the ability of the author at showing me the deep love the characters, main and second ones, feel for each other. It came to me powerfully in every form love can be shown. I submerged myself in the story, sexy and funny, emotional and brave. A warning, this is not a YA book so be ready for some hot scenes.

With Or Without You was so perfect I can’t wait for more. I feel to highly recommend the series (to  read in order) to everyone who is looking for a new, talented author who can greatly write and engage you in beautiful stories.

Book Design by CB Messer and Cover Illustration by Colleen M. Good. It seems to me the cover is a little different in style from the cover of the first book, still I like it a lot.
