    4.5 Second book in this delightful series but can be a standalone.I'm pretty much addicted to the charming setting and endearing characters Jay Northcote has created here.A small town setting is one of my favourite things. Alex is 18 and looking forward to going t...

    The second book in the Rainbow Place series explores the relationship between Alex, who?s nearly 18 and living in the closet due to his bigoted parents, and Cam, who?s 23 and works in landscaping. Unlike the first book in the series, this one is a YA/NA romance. The first coupl...

    My favorite thing about reading romance is that it takes me on a journey that makes me *feel* all sorts of emotions. And while this story was fine, the only thing I truly felt was mild frustration. : ( I fully admit that this could just be me in a reading mood, which happens,...

    Going to call it quits with this one around 47%! Frankly I?m just bored. And I just don?t get why these two aren?t or can?t be together. Gah, I honestly can?t even remember their names right now. I just wasn?t feeling either one of them. It?s a short book. And...

    I just wrote an extremely ranty review...and hit a button in my haste...and....it's gone. I'm thinking this is a sign. *cringe* This is a band-aid ripper (and slightly spoilery) so (read with caution and) here goes... Highlights of my lost rant: I love Jay and almost always lov...

    I've wanted to read Safe Place by Jay Northcote since the blurb was first revealed. I don't know; it just hooked me. friends to lovers + age gap + hurt/comfort It was screaming my name! I was kind of nervous I'd built up this book in my head- when I say I hooked, I'm n...

    This is the second story in the Rainbow Place series (hopefully I can find a Goodreads librarian to link them soon). It can be read as a standalone but as always it's probably best to read in order if you can. I hope you enjoy Alex and Cam's story if you decide to read :) ...

    4.5* Jays second instalment in his Rainbow Place series is a sweet slow burn romance with a young adult feel which sits alongside Seb and Jason's perfectly. Alex is an absolute sweetheart, almost 18 and living with a homophobic father and a less than supportive mother and just fi...

    Alex lives a double life. At home, with his homophobic politically-active parents, he keeps quiet. He can only be himself when he?s with his friends or at Rainbow Place. And when he?s with Cam. Alex stole a piece of my heart in book 1. I just wanted to wrap him up in a hug and t...

    ??????*Wanted a deeper connection*?????? The book centers around Alex Elliot (17, turns 18 at 27% into the book) and Cam (23; six years older than Alex). Cam works for a landscape gardening and is bisexual, while Alex works for his father where he hides his ...

    This is a slightly unconventional friends to lovers story. Cam and Alex meet at Rainbow Place when it?s vandalized. They?re attracted to each other, but Cam is unsure of the age difference and slightly afraid of Alex?s father finding out. So, he offers to be friends. When Ale...

    Though I'm not a fan of Cam, I loved Alex, he is a sweetheart. We met Alex in the previous book, and I was wonder what's his story would be, considering who his father is, you know. This is a very slow burn, and it was getting to my nerves about Cam. I was like, wanted to kiss Cam ...

    This was a very lovely second installment in the series. I really liked getting to know these characters and their different life struggles, I think it was really great that the author showed us to different upbringings. These guys were at different points in their lives so honestly, ...

    The author and publisher note this could be read as a standalone, and I mostly agree, though reading the first book will give background to several items referenced in Safe Place. Premise of the book is Alex is on the cusp of graduating from the British equivalent of High School an...

    The second book in the Rainbow Place series explores the relationship between Alex, who?s nearly 18 and living in the closet due to his bigoted parents, and Cam, who?s 23 and works in landscaping. Unlike the first book in the series, this one is a YA/NA romance. The first coupl...

    This is the second story in the Rainbow Place series (hopefully I can find a Goodreads librarian to link them soon). It can be read as a standalone but as always it's probably best to read in order if you can. I hope you enjoy Alex and Cam's story if you decide to read :) ...

    This is a slightly unconventional friends to lovers story. Cam and Alex meet at Rainbow Place when it?s vandalized. They?re attracted to each other, but Cam is unsure of the age difference and slightly afraid of Alex?s father finding out. So, he offers to be friends. When Ale...

    Though I'm not a fan of Cam, I loved Alex, he is a sweetheart. We met Alex in the previous book, and I was wonder what's his story would be, considering who his father is, you know. This is a very slow burn, and it was getting to my nerves about Cam. I was like, wanted to kiss Cam ...

    Alex is studying for his A Levels, desperate to leave home and start Uni many, many miles away from his Father and start his life instead of hiding in the closet. One evening out with friends, he meets Cam and falls hook line and sinker. Cam is a little hesitant due to the 6 year age g...

    With the misfortune of having the biggest homophobic asshat in the area as his father, Alex has been hiding in the closet since he the first time he knew that he was never going to be the kind of kid that his parents wanted. He has plans to finally come out, though, once he hits univer...

    I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 3 Stars. As a big fan of Jay Northcote's writing, generally all the books have been a massive hit with me, but there is something about this series that is a miss. I can't quite put it into words why neither bo...

    If I had to review Safe Place in one sentence I?d say it?s a quintessential Jay Northcote book in that it is a very well written story featuring two engaging and charming main characters (as well as a cast of fascinating secondaries) and a love story that meets quite a few bumps in...

    Coming from a homophobic father, Alex need to hide deep in the closet and afraid to showing who he really is. All he wants is to finish his study and start the university live far away from his father and be free. When Seb?s café vandalized by homophobic people, Alex and his fr...

    When I read the first book in this series, Rainbow Place, I was definitely intrigued by Alex considering who his father is since I knew that would be a hurdle for him in this story. And all of the rugby players from the first story captured my attention (how could they not?), so of cou...

    If I had to review Safe Place in one sentence I?d say it?s a quintessential Jay Northcote book in that it is a very well written story featuring two engaging and charming main characters (as well as a cast of fascinating secondaries) and a love story that meets quite a few bumps in...

    *~~*ARC kindly provided by the author to me in exchange for an honest review *~~* This book, although definitely not a light one, was utterly adorable & I can't stop swooning about even days after I read it (yes, I was lucky and got an early copy. <3) You think book one wa...

    I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 3 Stars. As a big fan of Jay Northcote's writing, generally all the books have been a massive hit with me, but there is something about this series that is a miss. I can't quite put it into words why neither bo...

    This author just hits all the right notes for me every time. I have yet to read a book by Jay that I haven't enjoyed immensely. Cam and Alex are sweet together their friendship the best and their courtship super frustrating. Cam tries desperately to not get involved with Alex romantica...

    Een feel-good story. ...

    *I received the book in exchange for an honest review* Once again I am at a loss where to start, except to say I absolutely loved the book. After reading Rainbow Place (my review of it can be found here), I was really excited about the next book, and even more so when I found out th...
