I have been eagerly waiting for this book and let me tell you, it was SO worth it. I am a complete and total fangirl for Jackstone! They stole my heart for sure. This fun, sexy story is one I will go back to time and time again.
This is Lauren Blakely's second MM title and it is simply fabulous. She writes the male POV so incredibly well! I'm so glad she's given us two sexy heroes to love.
As I mentioned before, I have dying to get my hands on this book. This is a standalone novel, but if you've read One Night Only you will recognize Stone and Jackson. Stone is our sexy rockstar and Jackson is his hot bodyguard. The sexual tension between these two is off the charts, but both try and ignore it. The careful, cautious flirting. Feeling each other out. Oh, my word. I loved watching them fall for one another.
I have a weakness for first kisses and this book? The first kiss is incredible. The sexy times between these two are off the charts. I'm not even remotely kidding when I say have a fan ready, you're going to need it. But these two are more than just sex. I loved seeing them discover more about each other outside of the bedroom (and I have to agree with Jackson-Beatles, ketchup and New York). They just complemented each other so well. You can feel how much they genuinely care for one another, and I loved that.
I was sucked into this world from page one. I felt like I was right there along with Jackson and Candi, watching Stone perform in the wings. I loved the secondary characters here; I swear nobody creates better relationships, particularly between siblings, than Lauren Blakely. I just felt like I was a part of this world and didn't want to leave it!
Now, I was also fortunate enough to get to hear an audio copy of this book. Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan (forever known as Jeddy thanks to Stella Hunter) are gold star narrators in my opinion and any time I can hear them together is a treat. These two just brought a little something extra to this book,in my opinion. I may or may not have squealed to the Author at one point since Jacob Morgan SINGS in this book as well as speaks. I was blown away by this performance. I will absolutely listen to this book again and again.
This book is absolutely amazing. I would rate it higher if I could for sure. This sexy and sweet book is one I will come back to over and over. I absolutely loved this book and HIGHLY recommend it.
How much did I love Stone and Jackson?
I am not even sure I am going to manage to tell you in a review, and really, you need to read them for yourself, so I am not going to ruin the fun here.
There are, I admit, very few M/M romances that I am willing to read. I like my stories to have, well, a story. And, often in M/M it's all about the sex. Which is fine, for a little while, I guess. But I read romance because I want there to be romance. And a story. And 2 characters who both hold their own and both are as important to the story as the other.
The difference in Lauren Blakely's books is that all of this is there. It's written like a M/F romance with 2 men. Now, I am not saying that she ignores the differences, not all all.
But what I am saying is she treats love as love, and couples as couples, and people falling in love as people...their gender isn't the most important thing to the story, the romance is...so sign me up.
I enjoyed and recommend this title.
