Welcome back to Temple High!
Damien Benoit-Ledoux returns with the third, heartwarming volume of his young adult gay romance series, Love Grows in Honest Places.
Zavien’s life revolves around his church’s strict rules and expectations for Christian living, but he feels more stuck than ever. With his grades slipping, his best swim times dropping, and the girl he can’t stand acting more clingy, his only bright spot is the time he spends with his best friend Caleb. But now the people closest to him are asking too many questions. Down deep, Zavien knows admitting his terrible secret will only turn his world upside down. So why can’t he stop thinking about the cute blue-haired boy from school?
Jolan openly lives his best life. Anything but shy—except when it comes to his oil paintings—he keeps his grades up and proudly works at a popular LGBT-friendly café. Unfortunately, that hasn’t landed him a boyfriend. Sure, there are plenty of guys to hook up with, but his heart wants a creative and romantic boyfriend—and he’s willing to wait for his Prince Charming. When his close friend Tracy meddles with his art and love life, he questions whether he should break his one rule: don’t date someone who isn’t out. So why is his recent masterpiece about the handsome closeted guy with a helluva lot of issues?
Even as the boys figure out what’s important and navigate high school drama, an unmistakable force draws them closer together. Is the universe trying to tell them a relationship is in their future?
The Love We Hide is the third book of the Love Grows in Honest Places series.
