Gideon always has a plan. His plans include running for class president, becoming head of the yearbook committee, and having his choice of colleges. They do NOT include falling head over heels for his best friend and next door neighbor, Kyle. It’s a distraction. It’s pointless, as Kyle is already dating the gorgeous and popular head cheerleader, Ruby. And Gideon doesn’t know what to do.
Kyle finally feels like he has a handle on life. He has a wonderful girlfriend, a best friend willing to debate the finer points of Lord of the Rings, and social acceptance as captain of the basketball team. Then, both Ruby and Gideon start acting really weird, just as his spot on the team is threatened, and Kyle can’t quite figure out what he did wrong…
This was some Pretty cool light stuff i just read,“Been Here All Along” was a story of two bestfriends turned boyfriends. lol It was a merely a light short read, maybe coupla 150 or 200 pages short. I liked the atmosphere of this book, the friendship of Gideon & Kyle made me realize that i want to have a friendship like they had.
I seriously have to change my friendship goals. TBH!!I really liked the writing, the writer really can push off some extra drama with a class. 😛 Seriously, their was alot of drama in it, that shouldn’t have been but again it all made the book more warmer and high school type, maybe! 😛
I liked Ruby, i don’t know why many people hate her. She was a nice girl and had some dangerous impulse like a normal human being had in normal life’s.She was not Regina George form Mean Girls. No matter what you think.
I liked all the side characters and how we got everyone’s POV. I would’ve liked Ezra & Ruby’s story more, TBH.I just loved, Gideon’s family, damn they were sooooo cool. I am jealous. All in all, this was a light romantic read, with some really good characters.
Overall, I thought this book was a cute, if predictable, read. I wished that the characters and storyline were a bit more developed but if you’re looking for a sweet/fluffy LGBT romance that’s geared a bit more towards a younger audience, you might want to try this one out.
Recommended to all, who want to read some light stuff.
