Reviews of Erickson's Previous Novels:
You may recall that I adore Megan Erickson's In Focus series. (Okay, so that's putting it mildly; whatever.) Book 1 and 2 have all the angsty feels. While Out of Frame is a bit lighter on the angst, Erickson still creates two guys that the reader will love, worry about, and root for.
Like the previous books in this series, OoF focuses just as much on the young men's romantic relationship as it does on their own struggles to figure out who they are and what they want. It is, after all, new adult.
Jay (J.R.) is bisexual, but has been told he has to play the part of the angry, straight black man if he wants his acting career to take off. He hates lying about who he is, but he doesn't want to risk coming out and losing his career, and therefore the money that helps his family.
Quinn has been stuck under the weight of his over-protective parents, always doing what's expected of him. After graduation, his parents just assume he'll live at home and take the job offer in his home town. But after spring break -- and time spent with Jay -- he realizes it's time to find his own path, even if the thought scares him.
Quinn and Jay are perfect together. I loved their easy banter and hot chemistry. I loved their sweet moments together and their self-discovery moments apart. Fine, fine, I loved everything about these two and highlighted a ton of scenes and quotes.
In short, I loved this book. If you're looking for an angst-light read filled with spring break fun and great chemistry, Out of Frame is the book to grab. If you want something more angsty, grab the previous books. Hell, grab them anyway and thank me later. While this is the third in the series, it can be read as a standalone. I'm very much looking forward to Levi's story next. From the minute he stepped onto the page, I knew I wanted his story.
