Description

Love doesn't come with a syllabus. Kelly Davidson has waited what seems like forever to graduate high school and get out of his small-minded, small town. But when he arrives at Hope University, he quickly realizes finding his Prince Charming isn't so easy. Everyone here is already out. In fact, Kelly could be the only virgin on campus. Worst of all, he's landed the charming, handsome, gay campus Casanova as a roommate, whose bed might as well be equipped with a revolving door.

Walter Lucas doesn't believe in storybook love. Everyone is better off having as much fun as possible with as many people as possible - except his shy, sad little sack of a roommate is seriously screwing up his world view. As Walter sets out to lure Kelly out of his shell, staying just friends is harder than he anticipated. He discovers love is a crash course in determination. To make the grade, he'll have to finally show up for class - and overcome his own private fear that love was never meant to last. Warning: This story contains lingering glances, milder than usual sexual content for this author, and a steamy dance-floor kiss. Story has no dairy or egg content, but may contain almonds.

Seeing what's in front of you...

I really enjoyed this story. The narrator brought the characters to life and I became engaged in the story of Kelly and Walter. Though at times I wanted to smack Walter upside the head, I understood the aspects of his life that resulted in his perspective on love as a lasting and true construct. A very nice, sit down to relax story with a happy ending...

This was one of my favorite ebooks last year.

What did you love best about Love Lessons?

I originally bought this in ebook format and read it last year. I loved Kelly Davidson and his unabashed love for Disney movies because that was something I'd never encountered before in a male character. It made the character cute, and endearing for me.Walter Lucas, however, reminded me a lot of myself. Even his favorite movie (The Fight Club) was also one of my favorites. He's cynical, and yet a complete romantic. I love how he tries (unsuccessfully) to hide his vulnerability, and how he takes care of the people he loves.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that it was about two people falling in love, in a normal setting, with no over-the-top drama and purple prose. And I liked how Heidi Cullinan was able to convey both Kelly and Walter's feelings through the narrative. The first time Kelly realized he wanted Walter, I could actually feel his yearning. When they were dancing and Walter was working up to kissing Kelly, you could feel their anticipation and nervousness, I could even hear the music in my head.

Did Iggy Toma do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes, it was easy to tell who was speaking since he gave them different voices. Wasn't too crazy about his voice for Walter, though, because it sounded rough to my ears at times. And initially I thought (when he was reading the narrative) he sounded too stiff and formal, even had a slightly angry/curt tone.

If you could take any character from Love Lessons out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Kelly Davidson. He is just completely adorable. Genuinely nice, polite, a ray of sunshine. As Walter described him -- a happy-seeking-missile.

Any additional comments?

I couldn't help but wish that this had been narrated by Jason Frazier because he would have been perfect for this book. He'd be perfect for Fever Pitch (Love Lessons book 2), too.

Iggy Toma's narration is perfectly paced.

Any additional comments?

This is just a very sweet, lovely, gentle love story. Though it doesn't have the grittier edge of most of the other Cullinan stories I've loved, it still had the heart and longing.

Iggy Toma's narration is perfectly paced and suited to the story whether the sweet or heated times.

One of the things I absolutely love about this is Kelly is such an unapologetic Disney princess. The in depth analysis of the different Disney animated movies was brilliant and oh-so-entertaining.

Walter and Kelly are so good together and they just make my heart melt.

Sweet story

This was really a pleasure to listen to. It is one of those stories where you have a smile on your face most of the time you are listening to their story. The narrator did a wonderful job of bringing Walter and Kelly to life. This is a very sweet story that is a little darker than you expect. It starts off as the openly gay college playboy meets the super shy, gay freshman that has massive allergies and loves Disney movies. The slow build up and angst of their romance is just right. We learn that even though Walter appears in control, he has demons to fight, a la his messed up family life. And although Kelly's Disney princess view of the world seems unrealistic, he has some steel in his spine when it comes to Walter. No real drama, just a sweet story. Definitely worth a credit.

Unbelievably good!

If you could sum up Love Lessons in three words, what would they be?

Best. Book. Ever.

What other book might you compare Love Lessons to and why?

This author reminds me a little of ZA Maxfield. The stories are as well crafted, the characters likable and believable, and the dialogue is SO SO good. By the time the two main characters got around to exchanging endearments it felt as natural as breathing. Too many authors rush through the relationship stuff or trade it off for sex. This was a brilliant balance of each.

What about Iggy Toma’s performance did you like?

OMG the reader is perfection. I got lost in the story because the pacing and flow were so well done.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could not stop listening to this book. It wrecked my schedule for two-three days. I regret not having more discipline.

Any additional comments?

I have added a new favorite author. You may proceed to ruin my life, Hedi Cullinan.

A bit sappy but sweet

Fun book for the summer. A bit predictable but sweet. Good for a summer beach read.

Love Lessons - A+

If you could sum up Love Lessons in three words, what would they be?

Sweet, touching, comfortable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Lessons?

I love how Kelly's family rallied around Walter when his own family let him down.

What does Iggy Toma bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has a soothing voice that's very easy to listen to.

If you could rename Love Lessons, what would you call it?

Family Matters

Any additional comments?

Anyone, if you're paying attention to these reviews, please make Heidi's entire catalog available through Audible. Her books are wonderful and in my opinion, way overdue for a good listen.

A lot of angst

In this series of 3 books, I happened to read this story last. If I had read it first, as written, I would not have bothered to read the other two, which would have been a real pity as they were truly awesome. This book was not. This story was way too angst filled, which slowed the story down and it was not nearly as interesting or engrossing as the others. They were more than awesome and I highly recommend.

Love Lessons, book 1

I LOVE KELLY AND WALTER...
At this point, while writing the review I think I've actually Read and Listened to this book somewhere around 10 times combined. And I know this wont be the last time I come back to this book, or this series. It is my go-to when I want something sweet and cute with no angst and little to no drama, that can just take me out of my head. I don't know how anyone could come away from reading this book and Not Fall in Love with these two characters. Heidi does such a great job writing all the characters in her books making sure we cover all the emotions while reading their stories. (I have read Almost every single book this Author has written and have given every single one of them 5 stars and would give more if that was an option)
Audio - Iggy Toma.... This audiobook deserves more than 5 stars as well. I cannot describe and put into words how much I love and adore the narration of this book. Iggy just makes these characters come to life, I just really enjoy all the effort he puts into each narration he does. Heidi did a great job in choosing him for Kelly and Walters book.
