Jordan O’Neill isn’t a fan of labels, considering he has a few. Gay, geek, librarian, socially awkward, a nervous rambler, an introvert, an outsider. The last thing he needs is one more. But when he realises adding the label asexual might explain a lot, it turns his world upside down.
Hennessy Lang moved to Surry Hills after splitting with his boyfriend. His being asexual had seen the end of a lot of his romances, but he’s determined to stay true to himself. Leaving his North Shore support group behind, he starts his own in Surry Hills, where he meets first-time-attendee Jordan.
A little bewildered and scared, but completely adorable, Hennessy is struck by this guy who’s trying to find where he belongs. Maybe Hennessy can convince Jordan that his world hasn’t been turned upside down at all, but maybe it’s now—for the first time in his life—the right way up.
Review by Twinsie Tenise
Jordan is a librarian who loves to cuss, and he talks a whole bunch of nonsense when he’s nervous and I just love him.
Hennessey works in internet safety. He’s a bit more reserved than Jordan, I guess you could say- but that does not matter one single iota- the 2 of them are 2 halves of the same whole. Soul mates. They were absolutely made for one another.
Jordan is struggling with this because he has zero desire for sex and the feelings Hennessey is stirring in him have left him confused.
Hennessey is so loving and understanding. He is the perfect partner for Jordan.
This is my first read involving asexuals. I loved it. I feel like I learned a lot and have a better understanding of asexualism, and I would like to thank the author for that. I swooned, I cried, I laughed (a lot), I fell in love with these 2 men and their unyielding love for one another. And don’t even get me started on the supporting characters. They were all a fantastic group of friends. I hope I can move on from this book. I miss them already.
