Description

"One of the most adorable, big-hearted, charming books in existence." (Becky Albertalli, number one New York Times best-selling author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda)

What If It's Us meets To All the Boys I've Loved Before in this upbeat and heartfelt boy-meets-boy romance that feels like a modern twist on a '90s rom-com!

Everyone knows about the dare: Each week, Bryson Keller must date someone new - the first person to ask him out on Monday morning. Few think Bryson can do it. He may be the king of Fairvale Academy, but he's never really dated before.

Until a boy asks him out, and everything changes.

Kai Sheridan didn't expect Bryson to say yes. So when Bryson agrees to secretly go out with him, Kai is thrown for a loop. But as the days go by, he discovers there's more to Bryson beneath the surface, and dating him begins to feel less like an act and more like the real thing. Kai knows how the story of a gay boy liking someone straight ends. With his heart on the line, he's awkwardly trying to navigate senior year at school, at home, and in the closet, all while grappling with the fact that this "relationship" will last only five days. After all, Bryson Keller is popular, good-looking, and straight...right?

Drawing on his own experiences, Kevin van Whye delivers an uplifting and poignant coming-out love story inspired by classics like Venio Tachibana and Rihito Takarai's manga Seven Days: Monday-Sunday and the '90s rom-com She's All That. Listeners will root for Kai and Bryson to share their hearts with the world - and with each other.

Last Ten Chapters makes the book

I wouldn’t have purchased this book without the narrator – Vikas Adam is a major go-to for me. I also wouldn’t have gone beyond chapter 10 without him being the narrator. I’m so glad he was the narrator because, as I stated in the title of this review – the last ten chapters make the book. There are a lot of complaints I could make about the story itself: Bad dialogue ran rampant. The boyfriend was ‘too perfect’ – definitely one we might dream up, but can’t exist. The flow of the story was choppy. The narrative too simple most of the time, the majority of the characters 1-dimensional... Any of those things would make me dislike a book. And yet, even with all that? After those amazing last 10 chapters that made me laugh and cry, I will relisten to Date Me, Bryson Keller over and over again. To once again relive Kai’s struggles. To once again watch him find home with the best looking guy in his high school, a romantic guy who truly notices and watches and understands Kai. To once again watch his parents rise up and fight for him. And, as annoying as it is, to also see that those who caused the problem will probably have nothing happen to them. Because that’s unfortunately how life is. (no matter how much I would have loved to see Shannon flattened) The story ended abruptly, which is fine, though I would love to find out where Kai and Bryson end up going to school. But that’s just an epilogue I would have loved to read. I find it amusing that I’ve never heard of Tisch before, and now, two YA books in a row mention it. I hope the writer works on his craft and learns to develop a more intense storyline, because he’s got the chops to go far. But he definitely needs to learn to develop a full story. 3 stars for a storyline that only got good at the end. 5 stars for Vikas Adam as-ever amazing narration. Over all 4 stars for a book I will relisten to.

As a gay person..

As a gay person I would like to say that I blushed really hard when there was cute moments in the book. I really enjoyed it as someone who could relate to this story ( beside having a perfect boyfriend *crys*). The overall book was amazing and my favorite part of it all was when the mom went on a rampage to protect her child. I wish it was that easy for people to understand.

No Spoilers Quick Recommendation

I love reading and listening to books. Even if I enjoy them I dont always rate them. And if I do I almost never take the time to write out a review. Stories like this are generally meant to be a pleasant distraction, something fun and light. This was one of the best novels about a gay protagonist I've ever read. There is just the right amount of drama to create tension, without turning the book into a tragedy or making things seem hopeless. There's also a number of horrible tropes common to many gay stories that this book gracefully avoids. It may not be for everyone but I cant recommend this book highly enough to anyone considering it.

Will leave you smiling

I loved this story. This is a sweet coming out story that left me with a full heart and a smile. Our hero Kai Sheridan is a quiet mixed race kid who blushes easily. Kai has known he is gay for a while but is in the closet because of his family and high school. Bryson Keller is Mr. Popularity and king of the soccer pitch. About as opposite as you can be but they work. I’m still smiling.

Gets me every time

I could listen to this book for months on repeat. It’s like a hallmark movie, you know what you’re getting into and you know the ending will be satisfying. It’s a good short book to read in between reading heavier books or to just read for the satisfying ending. I usually listen to books like these to give myself some familiarity when things get up in the clouds. That and the adorable fluff:). The main characters are likable, the story will get you invested, and the narrator really grows on you once you’re in deep. Overall, not the most spectacular book I’ve ever listened to, but has definitely become a book I feel at home with.

loved it but,

loved this SO much the narrator was difficult to listen to at the beginning as he has a tendency to yell a bit. His female voices are kind of infuriating, though the three more prevalent females voices aren't as bad. Overall, not my favorite narrator but he did a good job and it wasn't unlistenable. The story itself was adorable and emotional. It could be cringey at times, but that's just being a teenager, isn't it? I found myself crying multiple times either from sorrow or from the comfort I received in the familiarity of the situations.

cute but cliche

the narrator's voicework is all over the place and can be distracting, the writing is clearly that of a newer author and while it is an enjoyable story, there are a lot of genre and YA cliches that make the story feel like it was written in the late 90s instead of the present. the romance is cute and honest, and works well, and the protagonist is likeable enough, but the ending feels rushed. it could/should have been two or three chapters longer in my opinion to give a bit more weight and closure to the storyline. the ending is nice, sure, but also contextually abrupt. As an out gay man, I recognize the importance of books like this for a YA audience, and it's not a bad book by any means. I just suspect it could have been much more than it is. That, and the authors depiction of a coastal Californian town and private high school (both of which I've experienced extensively) read more as caricature than reality. finally, there are some choices made by particular characters in the third act that, in real life, would have far more extreme consequences than those of the reality of the book. overall, I did enjoy this book and would read more of this author, but there are more impactful and realistic lgbtq options out there (and more affecting, inspiring gay romances). if you personally score this the same or higher than me, I'd suggest seeking out more in the genre so you can see what I mean. 3.5 stars.

So sweet

This story started out sweet and cute. I loved the progression of the relationship. Then it became a box of tissues story. But every good book comes with a happy ending and this is a good book.

Light and Lovely

The book is a quick listen, from the moment you start the book your engaged and invested in the story and the characters. I found my sled gasping at moments in the book that elicit such reactions. It was a good two days with this book. If you want something quick and light hearted this is a good choice.

So cute and so important!

4.5 ⭐️ OH MY GOD I ENJOYED THIS SO MUCH! I started this at basically midnight last night, stayed up quite late, got up at 7:30 on a Sunday and now just finished it before noon because I just couldn’t put it down. Date Me, Bryson Keller has all the elements in a YA contemporary that I love: a plot that’s a bit ridiculous (in the best way) and funny, lovable siblings, quirky friends, a swoony love interest (seriously where can I get my own Bryson Keller?) and the perfect balance of important themes like coming out, following your dreams/ going to university, family drama, being mixed race and many more and a really cute romance! This lovely coming of age novel is #ownvoices and super important so I highly recommend checking it out!
