Outside the Lines by Caitlin Ricci #review #Genderqueer #Pansexual #Trans @LT3Press

Alex has always wanted to help people, so when he finds a scared, homeless child, he doesn’t hesitate to take ‘Socks’ to the shelter where he works, Trinity House.

Over the course of four years, a chance meeting turns into friendship. When Socks turns eighteen, they’re excited, because it means they can move in with Alex—until Alex rejects them, and Socks realizes an affection they thought mutual was only ever one-sided.

Years later, Socks has become Trin, a psychiatrist who specializes in helping children. And they still want desperately to know why Alex rejected them long ago…

I will be upfront and honest – I picked this book up simply because the blurb caught my attention.  Especially in regards to Socks (Trin) and how they are referred to as “they”.  I just had to read this because I wanted to find out about the “they” aspect of the story.

Needless to say – I was blown away by the story.  Once I started reading this book, it went from a simple curiosity about Socks (Trin) to a need to know more about what was going to happen between them and Alex.  I had to find out why Alex rejected them, and how the story was going to progress.

The twists and turns that Trin had thrown into the story was great.  It really kept me wanting to read more, and to fully understand what was going on with Trin, and why they were the way that they were.

One major thing that I loved about this book was that Trin and Alex didn’t rush into anything.  Trin set the pace and Alex was completely okay with going at that pace.  Which is great because usually in books the couple just jumps straight into a sexual relationship – that wasn’t the case with this book.  Both Alex and Trin grew into their relationship naturally.

Overall – this is a great read and I just couldn’t put it down.
