I’m So (Not) Over You

Penguin Random House Audio. Feb. 2022. 10:54 hrs. ISBN 9780593551950. $20. M/M ROMANCE
Months after the breakup with his boyfriend, Kian Andrews receives a text message from Hudson Rivers, the son of affluent distillery owners. He wants to apologize to Kian for his actions—and ask Kian to pretend to be his boyfriend in order to appease his parents. It starts as one dinner, but Kian soon finds himself with Hudson at a family wedding weekend in Georgia. Feelings emerge and lines get blurred, but what does this mean for Kian and Hudson? Narrator Timothy Bell Reese adds dimension to the novel, deftly switching between the New England and Southern accents of the two characters. The story tackles class, race, and gender issues in a way that does not feel heavy-handed, but rather a natural part of the story, and there are plenty of fun pop culture references.
VERDICT This Black queer romance from Jackson (Yesterday Is History) is a fun and sexy read full of sweet moments that would be a perfect addition for any library looking to add m/m romance.
