    One thought on “Billy's Turn”

    1. Ingenious ! A short story that can't fit in everything we want to know about this couple but Nick Pageant gives us enough of a story to justify pondering mysteries and spying on a sex scene between an experienced guy and a virgin. This is a Big Misunderstanding plot but the big misunderstanding is pretty BIG. I'm not sure how Billy was able to reconcile his hurt and end up with a happily ever after but if anyone deserves a HEA it's Billy.Nick Pageant does this to me a lot. He cuts his stories do [...]

    2. 3.5 starsA really cute story, a little short but cute. Billy is a young shy boy suffering from a mild case of cerebral palsy. Seth Ryder is a handsome student with a really bad rep. Will their apparently fortuitous meeting transform in something more?Billy’s shyness and naivety captured me. Loved how the Author dealt with his first time: hot and funny at the same time.Keep lots of pistacchio ice cream at hand, you’ll need it.

    3. UPDATE: May I be massively self-involved & blame this review for the GR downage? erased my review. I am left so mentally exhausted & emotionally disturbed that I've gone back to bed. I CAN'T HANDLE THIS SHIT TODAY. From now on I will refer to as BADREADS. Ha! Ya burnt!Course it could be my laptop. What the fuck ever!Read this book if you like a sweet read. Or whenever you're having a shitty day.

    4. Billy's Turn was a lovely story about two damaged boys who find each other and fall in love.Billy is a shy young man who suffers from a mild case of cerebral palsy. His disease makes him feel awkward around people, since he constantly questions whether or not they see his limp. Due to this, he also beats himself up and pushes his body hard to minimize the symptoms. He is a sweet, genuine guy, who works in a diner with the three men he calls his family.Seth goes to the gym Billy frequents. He's h [...]

    5. 3.5 starsThis was a fun read, not super angsty and maybe a little light on plot development, but I appreciated that Billy, who's POV filters the story, isn't perfect. He has a mild case of cerebral palsy, which makes him awkward and shy; he's always worried people are looking at his limp. Then he sees a hot guy at the gym who seems to see beyond that to the real Billy. Billy falls head over heels, only to find out that Seth, his love interest, has a pretty big secret, one that impacts Billy.Ther [...]

    6. Adorable MC, strong writing! I am on a Nick Pageant tear after reading and loving Beauty and the Bookworm. This is not snarky like Beauty and the Bookworm, but it is lovely. The sweet MC, Billy, is slightly disabled and really beats himself up about it. All he wants to do is to be loved and to love somebody who can see past his disability. This was short and sweet with well rounded characters and character developments. It had just enough angst for me and just enough humor and those "Awwwww, how [...]

    7. Let me tell you that I usually hate the “meddling friends and family members” trope with the power of a thousand suns. But here it worked surprisingly well. Maybe that's because I come to love all the characters from the other books, but I couldn't bring myself to be pissed about the whole thing with hiring Seth to be Billy's lover and Charlie's initial hostility towards him. I dunno they all just so obviously cared about Billy I was so happy he forgave them in the end.As for Seth and Billy [...]

    8. About 75% of this book was a bit too sweet and syrupy for my liking but the last 25% made it more to my liking. This is the first series that I'm reading backwards. Funny.

    9. #1 thanks for having a MC with a serious physical medical (not emotional) problem. Billy headed back to their table with Dillon following. Billy's confidence grew with every step. He had done it. He had actually talked to a handsome man in a bar. He couldn't help but smile a little to himself, but then it happened. A contraction seized Billy's left leg and he found himself stumbling forward. He was used to that happening and adapted to it automatically, never breaking his stride. Still, the dama [...]

    10. I thought it was goodo short for me but it was a good storyI love the way Nick Pageant writesi like the not so perfect MC's

    11. Other than an hour in bed with the man you love, is there anything in life more wonderful than finding an author who writes romance just the way you like it? That’s what happened to me when I stumbled across the works of Nick Pageant.Billy Collins is 22 years old. He works in a diner and suffers equally from CP (Cerebral Palsy) and UVS (Unwanted Virginity Syndrome)—my joke, not Pageant’s. Seth Ryder is every gay man’s wet dream come true—as warm and personable as he is drop-dead gorgeo [...]

    12. 3.5This had a lot of good things going for it. Mostly I loved Billy and his background story. I loved that Billy was not a perfect Adonis, and his self esteem issues just made him more loveable for me. The moment with his mother had me reaching for the tissues. I would of liked some more details on his life growing up just to round his character out a bit. The love story was sweet even if I did guess Seth's secret. But there were places that the story felt a little to simple and easy. Being a sh [...]

    13. 3,5 stars.A nice free read, I liked the setup, the storyline itself was sweet and Billy defintely a cute guy.It had potential and luckily the potential wasn't wasted. Why it's still average for me? The writing itself felt sometimes a bit too "average". Billy did this, Billy did that, the man did this, the man did that. All in all it was entertaining but nothing I'm going to reread.

    14. Not as good as the previews books I read form this author, Nevertheless, I still enjoy reading it.Billy was so adorable and shy that to see more of him in this sequel it makes this story worth it.
