So, if you read my blog on the reg….
You likely know about my greatest obsession on this planet forever.
~*”The Foxhole Court” by Nora Sakavic.*~
OH MY GOSHHHH JUST SAYING THE NAME GIVES ME CHILLS. I’m so in love and I’m finally able to talk about it without crying and hiding away in the darkest room with cookie dough ice cream.
i’M CRYING AGAINNNN.
Pg count: 237 pgs
Genre: YA LGBT Contemporary with sports and DRAMA. basically just perfection. and love. and happiness.
OK I’M SO EXCITED.
So there is an 18 year old boy
perfect angel I love him with all my heart please just give him to me I must protect him named Neil Josten.
He and his mom have been on the run for most of his childhood, running from Dad The Butcher of Baltimore. But his mom has finally been killed and now Neil’s all alone. THAT PRECIOUS BB.
When he’s recruited by The Palmetto State University Exy team (a beautiful fiction sport, and I suck at sports but sit down I’ll tell you the rules in detail) he has to choose between playing his dream sport and being potentially exposed within this high-profile team, or bailing at any minute.
If anyone sees through the hair dye, contacts, and fake name, he’ll get caught for sure. And his dad isn’t called the Brooklyn Butcher for nice, fluffly reasons. THIS POOR BOY MIGHT BE KILLED YOU GUYS.
Also another person on the team is a friend from his old life, but he doesn’t recognize Neil. YET.
Will Neil find something (or someone) worth staying and fighting for????
NEIL MY LOVE. ANDREW MY LIFE. NICKY. MATT. EVEN YOU KEVIN. NOT YOU AARON YOU LITTLE SH*T. DAN. COACH WYMACK DADDDDDD. ALLISON. RENEE. SETH I STILL LOVE YOU.
I mean GUYS. These characters, their banter, their unflinching love for each other????
I love reading about them playing Exy, and their REAL emotional and physical trauma.
Warning, this book goes deep into the serious emotional and physical trauma these college students have experienced. But everything contributed to character and I’m so entirely invested.
Also. The Romance. ANDREW AND NEIL ANDREIL MY BELOVEDDDDDDD.
This is seriously the slowest burn romance in known history. But it’s so worth it. oh god just go to tumblr right now.
AND I got the eBook for free on Amazon. THE LORD IS SMILING UPON US.
Anyone who says there is anything wrong with this book needs to go to their room quietly until they are rational humans again.
Pg. Count: 424 pgs
Wait did you just say you were in love with book 1 Neil Andrew + gang??????
wait for the second book.
Book 2 was everything I wanted in life + more. Basically book 2 is every person on the planet asking Andrew to behave, and Andrew impolitely declining. And then Neil asking Andrew to behave. And Andrew’s like, SURE WHATEVER U NEED.
And by book two it’s canon that everyone on the Foxhole Court team is in love with Neil and Neil is the sunshine of their lives. Especially Matt. MATT ADORES HIS TINY FRIEND NEIL AND IT BRINGS ME JOY.

This is THE book. With THE scene. Friends gather around because I am going to say something terribly important and it’s that the third book in this series is the best and everyone agrees that it’s a beautiful masterpiece.
Going into playing for the Foxes, Neil knew he probably wouldn’t survive more than a year because his shady past was breathing down his neck. And he was tragically okay with that?????? But now he’s got more to live for that ever. THIS BOY IS A SMOL LOVING SELFLESS MESS AND HE IS ADORABLE.
Also, I think of book 3 Precious Andrew every single hour of my life.
fun fact: I accidentally participated in a 24-hour readathon for this series. It was one of the highlights of my existence.
my review of this amazing book feels inadequate. HOW DO I EXPRESS MY OBSESSION PROPERLY?????
just know that if you like glorious romance, deep friendship, adventure, DRAMA, and tragic characters, THIS SERIES IS FOR YOU.
What do you think of Foxhole Court?????????
Do you want to form an Exy team???? It’s okay if you’re the opposite of athletic (me) we can just gather and silently write andreil fanfic.
+ shout-out to my DEAR PRECIOUS CLONE RIS @ awkwardaris who adores foxhole court and thinks andrew makes the sun shine because IT’S TRUE lsdkjfsdkljslkdjslsk
