The Race for Second

The Race for Second - Chase Potter A very interesting debut novel written by a young writer.

Ethan, a 19 year old college sophomore spends his Austauschjahr (exchange year) in Freiburg, Germany. One of his three roommates is Daniel: though Daniel is initially unfriendly, their relationship slowly evolves in something deeper and complex. Even though this is not a proper MM romance, there’s a strong sexual tension lying underneath.

I loved the European setting and the author’s perspective; he did a very good job depicting the hardships of adapting to another culture.

While there were some parts I found disappointing and although the fact this story is told in the first person, present tense, style which I detest, overall I enjoyed this book and I’ll certainly look forward to Chase Potter’s next works.
