Nick Stahlnecker is eighteen and not ready to grow up yet. He has a summer job, a case of existential panic, and a hopeless crush on the unattainable Jai Hazenbrook. Except how do you know that your coworker's unattainable unless you ask to blow him in the porta-potty? That's probably not what Dad meant when he said Nick should act more like an adult. Twenty-five-year-old Jai is back in his hometown of Franklin, Ohio, just long enough to earn the money to get the hell out again. His long-term goal of seeing more of the world is worth the short-term pain of living in his mother's basement, but only barely. Meeting Nick doesn't fit in with Jai's plans at all, but, as Jai soon learns, you don't have to travel halfway around the world to have the adventure of a lifetime. This is not a summer romance. This is a summer friendship-with-benefits. It's got pizza with disgusting toppings, Netflix and chill, and accidental exhibitionism. That's all. There are no feelings here. None. Shut up.

This book does not have enough hype around it. An adorable protagonist who is just starting to come into his own identity, a really healthy and communicative relationship with his best friend, and having a lot of preconceived notions and worries getting broken down in a really fulfilling romantic relationship. The book was very easy to read through with an enjoyable, quirky narrative.

Warning! This book absolutely has nsfw content, as well as an age gap between the two romantic leads. The younger character has just finished high school, and his love interest has been out of high school for a few years (if I remember correctly). If you are alright with those things, you'll probably love it!
