    1. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book in return for an honest review.Get ready to laugh This precious and hilarious story of an out and proud choir boy in small town South Carolina had me grinning from page one all the way through to the end Told in dual POV, Beckett s chapters kept me rolling on the floor, while Jaxon s chapters were a bit pensive, and a little steamy Oh, and Shelby I want her as my own sidekick Bless her heart She had me laughing the hardest and wanting to give he [...]


    2. Thank You Edelweiss for providing me a free review copy in exchange for an honest reviewI m just going to mark this review as spoilers until it s closer to the release date, because even for me this is pretty early view spoiler There are some stories that just make you feel like you need to take a shower afterwards Sometimes they re brutal Sometimes they re powerful Sometimes they re uncomfortable All of those instances require a visceral and emotional response from the reader and, usually, the [...]


    3. I am so excited for this book Not only does the title make me smile but the concept sounds AMAZEBALLS I hope the cover is pretty


    4. Jax is a jock with two moms, but his moms are separated and one of them starts seeing a guy That guy is the father to Beck, an out gay boy Set in South Carolina, this is the story of the two enemies getting together to break up their parents What I liked Yay diversity One of Jax s moms is bisexual, and that s wonderful What I disliked Mostly everything else Jax is a stereotype closeted bisexual boy who can t admit he likes guys because he s an athlete His lesbian mom wears flannel and carries a [...]


    5. I received an ARC of Social Intercourse and I LOVED this book It s smart, amusingly irreverent, touching and wickedly funny The main characters of Beckett and Jax are instantly relatable, as well as immediately intriguing Their story is a roller coaster I want to ride again and again So glad stories that focus on LGBT young love are coming to the marketplace Wish this book would have been available when I was a teen No one is perfect in this compelling and flawed like the rest of us group, but [...]


    6. This book was disappointing The premise was promising but both guys were kind of awful people Beckett, in particular his super grossly misogynistic attitude and behavior towards his dad s new girlfriend was so off putting that I almost stopped reading the book entirely so I found it difficult to root for them.


    7. This book lives up to its labels of hilarious and provocative It is also layered with important themes and heartfelt emotion.


    8. This book was great Smartly written, very funny, sweet, and engaging Devoured it in about 5 hours I liked the alternating POV chapters and really felt like I knew Beck and Jax by the end.
