As with everything Thursday Euclid and I write, music influences us and often works its way into our writing. I have playlists for every book, but Boyfriend Goals, in particular, drew attention to what we and the characters listen to.
From Trev’s driving music that included Beach House to Lee’s infamous misuse of The Magnetic Fields to the far less tragic sexy-times music of Massive Attack. And who could forget Lee’s drag lipsync of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass?”
It’s all included here in the playlist, along with other music that kept us moving through rewrites and edits. Some people do Pinterest boards, I do music lists. Enjoy!
What happens when a nerd and a jock pretend to be dating for the summer? Social justice whiz Trev needs to convince his parents that his bisexuality isn’t a phase, and swim team star Lee needs somewhere to stay until the new semester starts. Forced together for three months at a Vermont lake house with Trev’s family, the boys influence each other in unexpected ways, and despite their differences, a real bond begins to form. What will it take for a fake odd couple to become a real one?
