Author Name: K.A. Merikan
Publication Date & Length: November 1, 2014 – 266pgs


— Too cool for school. —

Ethan is a levelheaded, some might say ‘antisocial’, young artist-entrepreneur with a love for quirky taxidermy. He is close to graduating high school and at a crossroads. All he wants is to develop his business further, yet all his parents want is for him to go to law school. That is more than enough problems for Ethan, so any kind of love life is off his agenda. That is until Robert Hunter, the quarterback of the football team, comes crashing into him. Literally.

Robert drifts along in high school. He has good grades, he’s getting ready for med school, he’s even leaving potentially problematic dating until college. He’s gay, not ashamed of it, but he doesn’t want to stir up any trouble. His carefully laid plans might just go completely off the rails though, when he drinks too much at a party and causes irreversible damage to Ethan, the school’s weirdo.

Robert has to face the fact that maybe he isn’t the good guy he always considered himself to be. And maybe he doesn’t want to go to med school. And maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t actually want to wait with dating until college.

I got assigned this book because no one else would take it because of it’s title. So I’m the one who got the amazing pleasure of reading this gem. It’s utterly fantastic. Beautifully written, FUN, and sexy as hell.
Ethan-I’m-Not-Goth! and Robert-Star-Quarterback are an unlikely pair, thrown together by violence and its fallout, including a non-consensual encounter. It’s not what you think. Yes, trigger warning, this book takes itself very seriously, and won’t be for everyone.
And yes, there is a lot of taxidermy. Which is really interesting, and creative, and visual, but again, not for everybody.
If you’re willing to throw caution to the wind for teenage sexcapades, this is the book for you. I learned something and had fun cheering on the characters. Isn’t that what comes of great books?

K.A. Merikan is a joint project of Kat and Agnes Merikan, who jokingly claim to share one mind. They finish each other’s sentences and simultaneously come up with the same ideas. Kat and Agnes enjoy writing various kinds of stories, from light-hearted romance to thrillers. They love creating characters that are not easy to classify as good or evil, and firmly believe that even some villains deserve their happy endings. It is easiest to find them in galleries, good restaurants and historical sites, always with a computer or notebook, because for Kat and Agnes, every day is writing day. Future plans include lots of travel and a villa on the coast of Italy or a flat in Paris where they could retire after yet another crazy venture, only to write more hot homoerotic stories.

Kat and Agnes started as popular authors of online serials written in their native language, but are now focused on reaching a wider readership by writing in English. As K.A. Merikan, they have published a number of books, which cross genres while always staying homoerotic.
