Invincible Me by Addison Lloyd


Amazon Link   - Available in KU  

A reaction to almost dying or gay awakening?

I don’t fit in anymore. Not at home. Not at school. And this jittery feeling—like I’m living someone else’s life—needs to stop. Nothing makes sense until I confront Caleb Patterson at his locker. Arguing with him makes me feel alive again.

I have a girlfriend, but Caleb lights me up like he’s flipped a switch. He’s patient and sweet. And I want to kiss him until I break his world apart and reach the person underneath.

I’m tired of labels and playing by the rules. But living my life on my terms is more difficult than I imagined.

All I want is to be his everything.

Invincible Me is a 24,000 word YA gay romance. It is part of the Stories of the Seasons (A Gay YA series) but stands alone from the other books in the series. It is part of the Dublin High/Westbridge Academy world that starts with Merry Little Lies. It can be read as a standalone and has a HEA.

My Rating - 3.5 Stars!

Invincible Me is a short, cute young adult romance by Addison Lloyd. This novella is a high school, coming of age romance. It's an easy read and totally adorable.

High school couple Rob and Carli both have some truths to deal with. Having dated for two years, Rob is suddenly having feelings for the new boy at school, Caleb.

Rob is still reeling from almost dying a few months prior and the secrets he kept about it. He's dealing with acknowledging his truths and dealing with his knowledge that life is short. 

Rob's sexual awakening is sweet and completely believable in the way it's written. His complications with Carli, and the way it affects Caleb all seem realistic and it makes for a nice read.

Invincible Me is a short novella of just under one hundred pages. Addison Lloyd manages to explore a sweet coming of age story in this bisexual awakening romance. It's nice the way the author uses Rob's near death experience to make him face his truth.
