Braeden’s never had to question anything before. He’s always been popular, always had everything handed to him, and always been straight.
Then he met Jeffrey Young. Quiet, studious, analytical … a guy.
Falling for Jeff ultimately resulted in Braeden’s expulsion. Now he’s questioning everything. Like if he can handle his pill-abusing mother and ruthlessly enabling father much longer. If he’s protecting his siblings out of selfless motivations. If he belongs with Jeff, now his boyfriend. Jeff’s less-than-straight friends are skeptical of his sexuality as well, which isn’t assuaging any of Braeden’s fears.
As his connection to Jeff deepens quicker than expected, Braeden has to face the question he’s been avoiding for weeks: what is he supposed to do with a guy?

Yearning Young (Burning Britely Book 2) by Deidre Huesmann was sweet, emotional read, that punches you right in the feels. The second book in the Burning Britely series, we are once again taken on a raw emotional ride of two teens just trying to figure out this stupid thing called love. But being as they are a gay couple, it makes it all the more complicated and for one party, confusing. Picking up almost where the last book left off, we are greeted by Braeden’s POV, and it was a nice change up. He was a character I wanted to know more about, and I got what I wanted and more. This book was just as sweet as the first, but it held more raw emotions, more realistic struggles, and of course Braeden’s struggle with his sexuality. God, I was a mess while reading this, and I really wanted to smack him. My heart is a fluffy mess, and I really hope there is another book. These two are by far my favorite couple of the year. I need to know more, and I want to know it they make it.. Overall this book is a must read, and I can't praise it enough. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will be an emotional mess like me once you are done. Happy Reading -E.A. Walsh
Yearning Young by Diedre Huesmann a five-star read that you will fall for. This is the second novel in the Burning Britely Series, and I would wholeheartedly recommend you read them both as the first gives us one perspective and some background and then this one shows us the rest. There are a lot of complex issues dealt with in this series and the author deals so well, no matter what you feel this story will make you care. This may be wrote for teens but any age will get something out of it.
