“My heart didn't stand a chance-- I loved it from once upon a time all the way to its joyfully complex ever after.” – New York Times bestselling author Becky Albertalli
Chase Arthur is looking for his happily ever after.
Budding animator Chase is a hopeless romantic, eager to find a fairy tale kind of love. But he’s never let himself believe he deserved it – not when he’s still figuring himself out in so many ways, grappling with the body dysmorphia that plagued his self-image though high school and finding his place at a competitive arts college where he unexpectedly has to compete against his ex-best friend for an exclusive apprenticeship. But then he meets handsome, charming poet Jack, and everything changes.
Their emotional and physical chemistry is visceral, a spark of lightning that makes Chase feel alive. For the first time in his life, he knows what he wants, and the insecurities that have always stood in his way start to fade. But Jack might not be ready to be who Chase needs him to be. This could be the love he always hoped for--if he's willing to risk his heart.
Steven Salvatore, author of Can’t Take That Away, offers an electric story about self-discovery, falling in love, and finding out what it means to truly live.
