    • ***Trigger Warnings: Suicide attempts, suicidal thoughts, mention of past sexual abuse.***I had a hard time collecting my thoughts about this one, mainly because there were things I absolutely loved about the story, and things that left me very unimpressed. I have enjoyed books by this author before and if I had to rate the book solely on the very first part where Lane’s emotions after Rory’s passing are in the forefront, I would give the book a solid 5-star rating. Alas, the mess that follo [...]


    • A Joyfully Jay review. 5 starsThis is a story that will rip your heart out within the first few pages and keep squeezing until there is almost nothing left to get out of it before slowly bringing it back to life. I will warn readers that this is not an easy read because it does deal with some serious issues – depression, suicide, and childhood molestation and rape. The raw emotions in this book gave the story an authentic feel.Though we don’t actually meet Rory in this story, his memory is v [...]


    • Reviewed for From Top to Bottom Reviews.Trigger Warnings: - Suicidal thoughts, - suicide attempts - mention of sexual abuse.After reading the blurb I was prepared for a book that isn't fluffy and all hearts and roses. But what the blurb doesn't tell you, and I only saw it mentioned in ONE review, is that Lane and Baron are suicidal too. And it should have been mentioned somewhere! So if any of the above mentioned themes are triggery for you, don't read the book.It took me a while to figure out h [...]


    • 4.75 gorgeous, heartbreaking, gritty stars. I loved this book. I read it all in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. It made me cry and smile in equal parts. I love the way it was handled. Suicide is a terrible thing that has rippling effects. This book didn't gloss over any of the hard facts of suicide. There was no insta-love or magic grief cure and I loved the way the author handled the entire situation. It was an amazing book that I will never forget. I received an ARC of this book in [...]

    • Lane is in his last days of high school when his best friend, Rory, kills himself. He had no idea and the loss of his friend is only a little worse than the feeling that he didn’t really know him or the feeling that he couldn’t save him.At the funeral for Rory Lane meets Baron. Baron and Lane and Rory all attended the same high school but Lane has never met Baron. Baron knew Rory through an on-line game and had asked Rory to set him up on a date with Lane because Lane intrigued him. Before R [...]


    • This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.SoI am not a reader that is usually interested in school age/coming of age type of stories. But when one of my favorite authors, S. C. Wynne wrote this book, I knew I wanted to read it, no matter the storyline. And I was most certainly not disappointed.This book is full of the angst of the normal teenage growing pains of several characters who are on the cusp of graduation from high school, in preparation for the road to college, includi [...]


    • I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest reviewThis book started off so great. Within the first 5 minutes I had tears in my eyes and had to stop reading in public for fear of having people see my ugly cry face. Lane’s best friend Rory commits suicide right before the story starts, and we see Lane trying to figure out how to cope and move forward. Lane was a quiet and shy person who only really let Rory in. As the story goes on, we find out about things Rory did [...]


    • Reviewed by Brandyjo Newton for QUEERcentric BooksI just finished another all nighter, being kept awake by S.C. Wynne’s Believing Rory. I thought, I’ll start it tonight and then sleep and enjoy reading the rest while drinking the delicious nectar of coffee.Nope, that so did not go as planned. I started reading and next thing I knew it was three o’clock in the morning and I had THE FEELS!STRUGGLING WITH HIS BEST FRIEND’S DEATHLane, who just lost his best friend to suicide is struggling wi [...]


    • 4.5 stars I do so enjoy my SC Wynne books. Well written with great characters and sweet romance, they are usually just what the doctor ordered: a pick-me-up after one of my gut wrenching reads. I've often wondered how this author would do with a more angsty book. Well, I wonder no more Wynne has outdone herself. Suicide is far from an easy topic to read and/or write about but she has more than done it justice. While Rory does have a significant role to play, this story is less about the act he c [...]


    • This is my first book by this author but it definitely won’t be the last. I’ve started shying away from books with such young characters. I’m glad I didn’t miss this one. The writing is really good…I felt every emotion these characters felt. The story is heavy…very heavy. Not only are these kids dealing with the normal coming-of-age stressors, they are dealing with suicide and a couple other bad situations that I don’t want to give away. Both characters suffer from depression. Lane [...]


    • Loved this story. It had everything for me. Love, friendship and second chances. The beginning of course broke my heart when Lane loses his best friend Rory to suicide and he doesnt know why he left him. Lane is lost, broken hearted and angry. He is trying not to follow Rory. He then meets Baron who was friends with Rory from his on-line gaming. Rory wanted Baron to meet Lane but it never happened. Baron has his own issues and you need to read this book to find out. These 2 broken boys fall in l [...]


    • I received an arc of this book from the author for an honest review.Life for Lane and Baron our two main characters is definitely no where near easy. Both stuggle with very dark thoughts and yet they are each others salvation. Far from being perfect they struggle with letting people in to see who they really are. Their problems bring them both together yet it also pushes them away. I normally stay away for any books that may make me cryeven though this book did make a few tears for me I wouldn't [...]

    • This is my very favorite S.C. Wynne book so far! It's gripping, dramatic, sad, sweet, heart wrenching, hopeful. Such a well written story of bad growing pains, depression and even much worse problems! It made me cry, but it made me smile, too.Warning though — be aware that it deals with tough issues like suicide and suicidal thoughts and attempts. Not easy topics by any means, but S.C. Wynne pulls the story off skillfully, beautifully.


    • This is a story about suicide, all from 18-year-old Lane's point of view. We do not see his best friend's suicide, nor Lane attempted suicide, but we see all of the aftermath that dogs Lane. If this topic affects you badly, please don't read, but please do seek help if & when you need it. It's written by a person whose own teen years were challenging, as she says in her afterward. My only major point against it is Lane's attitude about his meds -- but that is so in Lane's character that I su [...]


    • This was a nice read and I liked the concept of the story. I felt Baron's attachment to Lane a bit too rushed and I was hoping for certain aspects of the background to be explored further. Also - what happened to the blogging - it just stopped midway through the book which felt unpolished.


    • justloveromance.wordpressThis was a tough one for me. Not the subject matter so much, although stories about suicide and depression aren’t exactly my go-to books. No, it was more the fact that I never really got a handle on who Lane and Baron really were. Maybe that was a deliberate decision on the author’s part because I got the sense that Lane and Baron were both figuring out who they were too; on the cusp of adulthood and evolving from the teens they once were to the adults they are about [...]


    • **Originally Posted on Kiki's Kinky Picks**4.5 starsBelieving Rory by S.C. Wynne was as tough to read–and as wonderful–as I thought it would be. This one really brought the angst but I’m glad S.C. wasn’t too afraid to tackle this topic.So many of us have dealt with, or are currently struggling with, mental illness. It’s not always something we want to even admit to ourselves, let alone talk about, but this book really shines a spotlight on these issues.It was difficult to read, but wel [...]


    • 4.5 rounded up.This story starts with a suicide of a close friend, and I must admit the subject material made me a little wary that it might be a very angsty read. However, although there is angst—and it wouldn’t be appropriate for there not to be—I thought it was handled realistically and without being over the top. The two main characters, Lane and Baron, have very real responses to the situations they’re in. Both are working through memories of bad things that have happened in their p [...]


    • 3.5 stars! Believing Rory is S.C. Wynne’s newest novel. It is the first book of this author that I’ve read and I can say I will definitely be checking out more in the future. This was a fast read, and though not all sunshine and roses, it was enjoyable and I was invested in the story from beginning to end. Coming of age stories are among my favorites. I love the angst of characters discovering themselves; the way an author takes experiences—both good and bad—and helps shape them, and lea [...]


    • 4.5 starsOh. My. God! This book was simply amazing. Heart breaking and sweet and romantic all at the same time. S.C. Wynne did utterly fabulous with this story. This one sucked me in so much I read it in one sitting at a coffee shop.I never imagined such a great couple would be the result of a young man committing suicide. Lane is devastated when Rory, his best friend, takes his own life. He isn’t sure he can keep going but is buoyed by a couple of new friendships, once of which is with Baron [...]


    • Do you like drama? Enjoy coming of age stories where teens become men? Because this story has a LOT of drama, but it never quite strayed into too much because the characters are high school seniors. That is a very dramatic time in a person's life in general, but then Lane is left devastated by his best friend's suicide. Worse—he didn't even see it coming. What kind of friend was he? Especially because he's so horribly mad at Lane for leaving him behind. Lane's no stranger to the pain that can [...]


    • Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.Rory was Lane's best friend. Rory broke Lane when he did what he did, and left him all alone. Baron was friends with Rory via an online game and he had wanted to meet Lane before Rorywent. When Baron meets Lane properly, the two boys bond over Rory, the shared experience and over each other.I usually steer clear of books with high school/college aged characters, but something about this one grabbed me. I'm so glad it did [...]

    • I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.Believing Rory is a beautiful coming of age story featuring two high school seniors, Lane & Baron. They share a connection via a mutual friend, Rory, who committed suicide just prior to the story beginning. Lane is coping (poorly) with the suicide of his best friend. The funeral scene was heart-wrenching to read, but it’s where they meet for the first time. The two are seemingly polar opposites, Baron is a popu [...]
