Resembles a typical high school comedy, just with twenty-something characters. You get the whole set-up: the outsider girl (or femme boy in this case), the slightly dense jock, the bully, his apparently devoted following, the mouthy best friend, the awkward but ultimately loving family.
While I'm not too font of high school rom-coms, Femme
had enough depth to keep me going. And femme guys are such a rarity in m/m (and I think even in gay romance/fiction) that I have to give Thornton some credit simply for writing this story.
It could have used another round in proofreading, however.
