    "Being a teen in high school is rough. Even more when your sexuality is at odds with the majority. I found this book to really help get me through these tough times. It's comforting to read stories about others like myself , even fiction. I loved every minute of this book. So happy I found it."

    "If you didn’t know, the book “Try” contains very frank descriptions of sexual behavior, so reader discretion advised or whatever. That said, this book is lovely. The relationship between the two main characters – both sexy, accomplished men in their respective careers – develops realistically, and gets steamy almost immediately. Logan and Tate are first attracted to each other’s (very sexy) bodies, and then develop a kind of romance of words, trading (sexy) banter that I found just as enticing as the sex scenes. "

    "We are taken on a breath taking story that mirrors real life problems that we are facing today. This book challenges its readers to think deeper about the problems facing our society and makes them aware of just how hard transgender individuals have it. I recommend this book to anyone, especially LGBT individuals!"

    "This feels silly to say, but this book changed my life. I love Robin Hood. Have tracked down every version of the story I can, researched the historical origins of the legend (my favorites involve the ones where Robin was a pagan and a witch), dreamt of writing my own modern adaptation, and have written papers about the relevance of the Robin Hood story as long as we live in a culture where the rich oppress and exploit the poor, written about why it's such an enduring and important myth. I'm also a bisexual woman who never finds enough queer fiction, especially historical, and this book is everything I have ever wanted. And then it was better. It's excellently and engagingly written, with characters that resonate so deeply with the reader that you can't help but be caught up, unable to put it down. It's an amazing perspective on Robin Hood, one that could only be told from the view of a woman and one I haven't seen before. It's very well done historical fiction, and it's absolutely wonderful as a story of two girls finding themselves and falling in love. It's ragingly feminist in the best possible way, showing how women defy gender roles and expectations no matter the era, but also how they use and weaponize the roles forced upon them by society."

    "This book was very sweet, but also very sad. It is nice to see more gay characters become the main characters of stories, but the story was not so cheery. As I was reading I was rooting for the couple to make it through their difficult time and over come their troubles to find a happier life. A good story should engage the reader and this one definitely did. It only took me a couple of days to finish it because I read so many chapters daily. This is one of the best books I've read when it comes to representing queer people."
