I’m not quite as mad at this one as I was at the first book Bryan & Jase. The cover still sucks and doesn’t really make me think of either Brody or Nick. I am still PISSED about the asinine cliche line about “favorite guy/gal/girl/man” (see OPENING LINE BELOW).
I liked the story better than the first because it was a friends-to-lovers versus a hook up turned “gay for you” romance—which I have a list of reasons why that didn’t work or even really happen in the first book. I liked the how the characters schemed to better themselves, but ultimately fell for each other.
