"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)

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. ( )

While not on stage as part of the boy-band Saturday, Rubin and Zach struggle to transition from closeted band-mates to an out and proud couple. Will their fans accept them? Does it matter?

this is pretty good. it was fun and sweet and not without tension and angst. i appreciated the friendships and that the relationship tension was all realistic and reasonable, nothing that felt forced by the genre. i also liked the different levels of parental involvement and relationships that existed with the boys. i had no idea that celebrities are managed to the extent that they are in this book; but it does make sense that this may be reality. while a fan thinks they know and like a certain member of the group, that persona is entirely made up by their marketing team. i wonder how often that's the case.

i only wish the voices of the boys sounded more distinct, as each chapter could have either been ruben or zach, they sounded exactly the same. i could only keep them straight by their mothers, because otherwise they sounded too similar. the book is also probably 50% longer than it needs to be, and i wish it was shorter and tighter. but the messaging is good, the queer rep is good and felt really true, and the writing is pretty good. all around enjoyable.

Ah, If This Gets Out was so very good! I figured that I would love this book, from the moment that I read the synopsis. A story about a boy band, their behind the scenes lives, rounded out with a romance? Yes please!

First off, let me give some love to the authors for writing such stellar characters. Ruben, Zach, Angel and Jon were all such vividly written people, each with their own personalities and flaws. It always makes me happy to see characters who are still going through growing phases. I mean, what could be harder than trying to be a teenager while simultaneously trying to be a famous singer? This story doesn’t glorify the bright lights of fame, but instead shines the light on what they can put people through. Each of the boys has their own baggage that they’re already carrying around, and fame only makes that burden a lot heavier.

That’s not to say that this book is all doom and gloom though. Like I said above, the boys are vividly written and lovely to read about. Their relationships with one another felt genuine. A strong love for one another, maybe laced occasionally with a bit of exasperation or worry. Even their witty banter and bickering felt realistic to me. I giggled a lot, especially at Angel’s sense of humor. It’s something that really elevates the rest of the story, and makes you root for the boys as they navigate their separate lives and separate issues.

As for the romance, well, I can’t say too much without spoiling so I’ll keep it simple. Ruben and Zach’s relationship truly felt natural and believable. It was a slow burn, and watching Zach navigate his true feelings made me smile and tear up in equal measures. What I especially appreciated about this particular part though was how open they were with one another. As an adult, I know for a fact that nothing is solved when people refuse to communicate to one another. That is something that is highlighted in this story. These two went through a lot to get what they wanted, and I truly adored them for it.

The absolute only reason that I gave this a four star rating was that it’s a dual POV book, and that is always rough for me to keep up with. The only difference between the two sets of chapters was the name of the boy under each chapter header. Since they essentially sounded the same while speaking, it made it hard for me to distinguish between the two. I found myself stopping to double check that I knew who was speaking, more than a few times. This is not say that others will have this same problem, so take that with a grain of salt! The book is definitely more than worth it. ( )
