The Bucket List by RJ Scott
This is a heart-wrenching, romantic and interesting story. When Jason's brother Andrew dies he begins doing the things that Andrew had put on a bucket list for Jason to do for him. Beginning with seeing their childhood friend Mark, a man that disappeared on them when he and Andrew were 15, and convincing him to attend the 15 year high school reunion coming up. Mark is happy to see Jason, but devastated to learn of Andrew's death. Mark agrees to go with Jason to the reunion, but only for Andrew. He feels guilty for never having gone back to his hometown to see them and explain why he left. Mark hates that school, having been bullied and humiliated it's a place he never thought he would never step foot in again. Things don't go well, the bully is still a bully, and he won't leave Mark alone. After that disaster he agrees to still continue with the list. First stop is England. While on this trip Mark starts to develop feelings for Jason, while Jason realizes that he never got over his crush on Mark. Mark's acting career forced him to hide the fact that he is gay, but he finds it harder and harder to try to keep pretending. Their trip is intensely emotional, they cry and they laugh, and fall they in love. I cried throughout the book for all 3 of them. Add this one to your TBR list.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
