The Boys and the Bees - Mari Donne You know how sometimes you just love things for reasons that are completely unknown to you? That was me and this book. I loved it so so much that it made my teeth ache. It's not the type of thing I usually like, as it was a pretty straightforward romance with lots of family drama, and those things tend to bore me. But holy hell did I love Mark and Jamie. I can't explain why; maybe it's because Mari Donne is such a talented author, maybe I just needed something sweet and heartfelt in my life right now, maybe it was the all the pop culture sci-fi references. But I can honestly say that even from very early in the book I wanted things to work out for the two of them more than I have wanted anything in my entire life.
