Sixteen-year-old
Dylan Highmark thought his winter was going to be full of boring shifts at the
Dairy Queen, until he finds himself in love with a boy who’s literally too hot
to handle.

Dylan has
always wanted a boyfriend, but the suburbs surrounding Philadelphia do not have
a lot in the way of options. Then, in walks Jordan, a completely normal (and
undeniably cute) boy who also happens to run at a cool 110 degrees Fahrenheit. When the boys start spending time together, Dylan begins feeling all kinds of
ways, and when he spikes a fever for two weeks and is suddenly coughing flames,
he thinks he might be suffering from something more than just a crush. Jordan
forces Dylan to keep his symptoms a secret. But as the pressure mounts and
Dylan becomes distant with his closest friends and family, he pushes Jordan for
answers. Jordan’s revelations of why he’s like this, where he came from, and
who’s after him leaves Dylan realizing how much first love is truly out of this
world. And if Earth supports life that breathes oxygen, then love can only keep
Jordan and Dylan together for so long.


THE
TEMPERATURE OF ME AND YOU is the story of first love, and the lengths we’ll go
to figure out our hearts. What starts as an electric, chance encounter at a
Dairy Queen quickly evolves into a heated romance, a journey of trust and
identity, and a ticking clock for survival.

Reviews:

The
Temperature of Me and You catapults the notion of sizzling romance to a whole
new fun level with both metaphoric and literal sparks, flames, and superhuman
pyro-powers brightly burning in a smokin’ hot story.―Alex Sanchez, author
of Rainbow Boys and You Brought Me the Ocean

With so much heart, mystery, and sci-fi intrigue, Brian lit a fire in my soul
that had me burning through these pages! Not only will the action have you on the edge of your seat, but the sparks flying between Dylan and Jordan will make
you melt.―Jason June, author of Jay’s Gay Agenda

 

My Review: 5/5 ⭐️ This was such a deliciously queer book! A quick read with an interesting concet. Dylan was such a great main character and his relationship with Jordan made my heart grow three sizes 😉 The overall pacing was excellent, the intrigue too was great. I was a little upset that the powers don’t get explained, but it may be more of a magical realism which often doesn’t explain how magic/powers work. Overall, highly recommend!!
