Title: Trouble and the Wallflower
Raised in near seclusion by an agoraphobic mother, Davy Cooper’s social skills are almost nonexistent. Now that his mother has died, he needs to make friends for the first time in his life. He catches Gavin Walker’s eye, but the sexy, confident, bad boy hipster intimidates shy Davy so much that he throws away Gavin’s number every time he offers it.
When Gavin defends Davy from a rude guy, Davy begins to warm to him. However, with his limited experience, he thinks he and Gavin are too different, and anything more than a casual acquaintance will end in complete disaster.

Being the wallflower is something that Davy is okay with for the most part. He grew up in a home with an agoraphobic mother. Davy was homeschooled. Now at twenty-two years old he has an apartment, a job, he’s taking some online college classes. He is trying to live what most consider a normal social existence. He is trying. He is getting used to being around people more. He is working on understanding social ques. He is also trying to not give into the attraction that he feels for the social butterfly know as Gavin, a guy that is surely nothing but trouble.
The reputation that follows Gavin has been earned. He enjoys life. He loves sex. He is living life to the absolute fullest. Gavin also knows that he wants to bring Davy into that fun fullness. It takes Gavin finally getting Davy’s attention for readers to see a different side of Gavin. The real Gavin makes for a very interesting read. He’s very much the social butterfly. He also is a young man dealing with a past that he is dying to outrun and a present that he wants time to standstill for.
I knew going into Trouble & the Wallflower by Kade Boehme that I was going to enjoy the book. I’ve discovered that I share reasons for loving a book with a fellow reader/blogger and I’ve been going through her “favorite reads” list. Also gay college boys seem to be a male male romance favorite of mine. Gavin and Davy turn out to be very mature thinkers for their ages. Gavin is dealing with some very heavy things at home. Nothing in these characters lives is simple and they have to make some tough choices. It all makes for an excellent read.
