Book Rec: Hold Me, by Courtney Milan

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24348034-hold-me

GUYYYYYS YOU WANT TO READ THIS BOOK.

OR AT LEAST I WANT YOU TO READ THIS BOOK AND I THINK YOU WILL ENJOY IT!!!

I lost most of yesterday to reading this book and being emotionally compromised by it--it made me cry repeatedly, but, you know, in the awesome way.

It’s a het romance where the hero is a bi/pan dude of Thai and Chinese descent and the heroine is a Latina transwoman, and NONE OF THOSE LABELS ARE WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT.

Instead, it’s a “love each other online/hate each other in real life” story where the hero’s asshole behavior isn’t magically erased by apologies and I love yous--where there’s nothing as simple as a silly misunderstanding that can be quickly cleared up, because it all matters, and the characters, knowing each other online and off, good and bad, choose to struggle through their respective issues and the ways they’ve hurt each other because love matters too, and in the end, love--real love, flawed and human, brave and determined love--wins out.
