"If This Gets Out is an absolute showstopper! Equal parts edgy and adorable, this bright, joyful book has everything I look for in a queer YA romance." - Phil Stamper, bestselling author of The Gravity of Us One of the world's biggest boy bands. A secret love. What happens if the world finds out? A queer YA boy band romance from Sophie Gonzales and Cale Dietrich, perfect for fans of Only Mostly Devastated and What If It's Us. Eighteen-year-olds Ruben Montez and Zach Knight are two members of the boy-band Saturday, one of the biggest acts in America. Along with their bandmates, Angel Phan and Jon Braxton, the four are teen heartbreakers in front of the cameras and best friends backstage. But privately, cracks are starting to form: their once-easy rapport is straining under the pressures of fame, and Ruben confides in Zach that he's feeling smothered by management's pressure to stay in the closet. "Deftly explores the dark side of fame and the giddy thrill of first - and forbidden - love." - Mackenzi Lee, New York Times bestselling author "A sweet and swoon-worthy romance. Zach and Ruben are a pitch-perfect duet!" - Caleb Roehrig, author of Last Seen Leaving "Dazzles . . . with a narrative of queer boy-bandmates who wrestle with newfound fame, and newfound feelings for each other. Readers will fall in love." - Adam Sass, author of Surrender Your Sons "Blends the ache and the beauty of coming out under the lights of celebrity with the ways in which queer love is told to stay hidden, even when it's the only thing keeping the music going." - L.C. Rosen, author of Camp… (més)

I read the NetGalley ARC; this is my honest review.

It's the perfect title for this plot, something I always admire. The boy band guys are distinct - and the two POV characters get different fonts, which helped me immeasurably as they each have (different) mom issues. The plot is given enough time to develop; the issues are taken from some real-world scandals. The individual ways the guys handle problems was great. And, I liked how it ended, which is key to gaining a fourth star. I didn't mind at all that it's fade-to-black (no sex scenes). The boy band/management issues felt real, and were creepy, but the entertainment industry can be, and if you don't know that, just remember: no business is your friend. The bottom line is inherently dangerous to individuals. It's an important message, particularly for young readers.

I had issues with how poorly one of the guys deals with his inner awareness, or rather how long it lasted. That's probably just me. It isn't my own experience at all.

I give this four instead of five stars because the prose is full of showing a feeling and then telling me what it is, so double-telling, which feels like distrust of readers to me. Each POV character over-describes his state of mind multiple times, another symptom of telling instead of showing. Done sparingly, it's fine. But here it is constant.

All in all, not sorry I came across this one and gave it a try. ( )

I'm a big fan of both, Sophie and Cale. When I saw this synopsis my directioner heart lost a beat, but the read was so not the fanfiction I was expecting!
You can see some resemblance with the boys, but also with a lot of boybands and girlbands over the times, I liked a lot the relationship between them as a group, very close but also some tension between thinking of the others as friends or work colleagues.
The plot was dense, the drama was close to zero when it comes to their relationships, they just were really good to each other, never fighting hard, never lying, just some small misunderstandings that were resolved almost instantly.
The book was mostly about the industry, actually, about closeting, toxic relationships in the family or at work, being gaslighted, outed, threatened, substance abuse, and so many things that we don't talk enough about, when we really should.
It's really a lot bigger than just a ship, being the actually ships being truth or not, doesn't matter, what does matter it's why, when we have 3% of the worldwide population being LGBTQIA (this of the people that are actually out, in friendlier countries this can be over the 20%), how can in the media we have so few examples? This makes us think that one of two things is happening:
1- the LGBT community doesn't get to be between the biggest stars
2- the LGBT community is there, but closed
And why? This can only reflect the prejudice of the public, the media and everyone that manage this industries. We, as the public, need to show support. If we are showing to the wrong persons, like the Saturday's fans that were over heels by Anjon when they're not the real couple in the band, well, that was a honest mistake, but this still showed to them as a band that they would be just as loved by the fans even if they were not straight as the media painted them.
Even if the authors said that the book was not inspired by any real ship, and I believe it, they obviously made the research about the ones that are actually in the media and used this in this book. It was very respectful with all the real artists, and nothing but perfect, as it always is with the books by these two. ( )

While reading this, I felt like I was being thrown back to 2014 and One Direction. This story follows Ruben, Zach, Jon and Angel, better know as Saturday, a popular boyband who is on tour. Zach confide in Ruben and things get heated quickly. This was a good read, I enjoyed the writing and my boyband heart was happy. I did enjoy the last five chapters and how the band took their own destiny in their hands. And I’d love a follow up book to see how they fair as a band. But seriously, it felt like this was an One Direction fan fiction in book form. ( )

If this gets out is a contemporary YA story following a hit boy band, centered largely around two members Reuben and Zack, as their friendship blossoms into love but stumble over several obstacles on the way. In short this book screams READ ME and will not disappoint.

Reuben has been openly gay in his private life for a while yet the bands management is all but forcing him to keep it a secret from the public, though rumors of such matter surround the whole band, they are given clear guidelines to follow at all times in order to "keep the fans happy" but what happens when Reuben and Zack move from friendship to love? That was NOT part of managements plan.

This story is definitely a slow burn romance with clearly defined characters and a narrative (written from alternating points of view) that is believable and leaves no question that this is about two young adults and written for the same audience which is an increasingly hard thing to find as society pushes the limits of all age groups to the limits, so I loved that this remained true to what it is in the best possible way.

The story truly is adorable and readers will fall in love on page one making this fairly unputdownable as the story grabs you by the hand (and heart) and courts the reader until well beyond the final page.

I am so grateful to Netgalley, Sophie Gonzales, and Cale Dietrich for the opportunity to read an advance digital copy and share my unfiltered opinion. I cannot wait until I can purchase a physical copy when it is released and will be handing copies out to friends as well, because yes it really is THAT good.

This novel cannot hit shelves soon enough. I will be singing this books praises for a long time to come, counting down the days until the world can fall in love with this charmer together. ( )

Audiobook isn't very good since it is hard to tell the narrators apart. The actor doesn't do a good job creating different voices for the two characters, which is surprising since he does a better job for the supporting characters. ( )
