Screenwriter Noah Ashley has a few four-letter words for his agent when she suggests he improve his script by shadowing a PI. Still, because he’s an artist dedicated to his craft and she knows where the bodies are buried, he agrees. Then he spends a little time with the gorgeous PI, and suddenly it seems like a really good plan. The PI doesn’t seem to entirely love the idea, but Noah has never been afraid to go after what he wants.
PI Drew Rodriguez is used to people depending on him. He’s the classic rock for his family. Responsible. Dependable. The classic rock would never succumb to the borderline sleazy temptation of friends with benefits, no matter how sexy that temptation is. Drew is looking for something enduring.
Despite Drew’s misgivings, it’s not long before they’ve got all the requisites for friends with benefits going. Friendly, good conversation? Check. Fun times in and out of bed? Check. Hot, electrolyte-sapping sex? Double check. Falling in love? Yeah. About that…
After the first book in the series came so highly recommended I read it, loved it, and quickly got started on book 2. This book was full of fun, snarky humor, and emotion and lived up to the high expectations set up by book one.
*Opposites attract. Due to his upbringing, Drew has always had to be the rock of his family and doesn’t do casual hookups. Noah is used to the leeches of Hollywood and doesn’t do serious relationships. It was so much fun reading the mighty fall.
*The snarky banter. I had a perma-grin almost the entire time I was reading this book.
*The dialogue. It flowed effortlessly.
*The secondary cast of characters. They added to the story and helped us understand what molded each man.
*I loved catching up with Mac and Jordan- seeing where they are in their relationship.
*The plot- it felt real and honest.
My only complaints:
*The book did feel a bit long but thankfully it doesn’t feel that way for long.
*The fade to black on their first date at Drew’s house. It was a big moment for them, and I felt a bit cheated out of such a pivotal point in their relationship.
~As far as this being book 2~
Can it be read as a standalone? Technically yes, but I think for full enjoyment of the characters and their story- book one should be read.
All in all, this was a win. It wasn’t just a story about two men falling in love- it’s also about family, friendships, forgiveness, and taking chances.
If you’re looking for a hilarious and emotional story, then look no further! 4.5 Stars!
