I’ve never messed around with a guy before. Not that I haven’t been attracted to guys. The opportunity just never came up.
I stand at the front door, naked. My bro’s roomie, Scott, is pissed about how much noise I made with the girl I just escorted out of their apartment, but I figured we were alone, and I couldn’t help that she liked to scream out to let me know she was enjoying herself. Just like I can’t help that the raging boner I have right now is for Scott, not her. I don’t know what it is about the angry glare he’s giving me that turns me on so much, but I just want to tug on his curly brown locks and hear him call out my name as I show him a good time.
Scott doesn’t want anything to do with me. At least, I think that’s the case, but I learn just how wrong I am one night when we wind up tearing each other’s clothes off and racing for the bedroom. He blows my mind…and well, me too. We spend the next few days messing around before I head back to California. That’s supposed to be the end of it. But after my sister makes a crap investment on a rundown house near my bro’s apartment in Atlanta, I jump at the opportunity to help her fix it up. I don’t want her to have to stay with our parents, who I’ve avoided since I left for college–don’t get me started.
Scott volunteers to work on the project too, which gives us plenty of time to have a little fun together. It’s supposed to be about fixing up the house, but the more time I spend with him, the more I realize it’s not the only fixer upper Scott’s working on. He’s doing something to me–making me better. And even though I’m heading back home when this is all over, I don’t want it to end. Because I’m falling for Scott…so hard.
This hurts me for the fact that am a fan of Devon McCormack books after reading three of his other books other and loved them. However this book was missing what I loved about the other books.
I Think my biggest issue is the writing felt off to me. It just felt different from hi other books I’ve read. It was a bit cheesy for me that I had some omg I can’t believe they said that.
I still loved the two main characters Scott and Mickey and have a soft spot for what they went through. They both have family issues that they have to deal with. And they also was each others support system when needed it was sweet. However for a duel POV it was a bit one sided with Mickey being center which is fine since he has the most family issues. However Scott to had some issues that was glimpsed at then wrapped up pretty fast. I would of just liked it to be more equal and seeing more Scott with his family and not just a couple times.
There is somethings I did like about this book. Like the sibling relationship. Mickey may not have the best relationship with his parents however he has a real tight one with his siblings. The building aspect when it actually was getting done was cool with Mickey doing that for a living and being a good teacher to Scott the graphic designer they made a good time.
The romance was a up and down thing to me. Sometimes I was so for it other time it was just straight up cheesy. They seemed to want to just have the relation part but not the ship part. Which is annoying how they kept everything in there head and asked what’s going to happen next their like I don’t know. If they talked about it more it would have been much easier to mange but of course need the drama.
I liked this book for the relationship between Mickey and his sibling and how Mickey and Scott did start to bound. On the other hands it was cheesy read and has lots of weird worded things in it, and the spacing was off. So for your first of these who are first time with these author these should be your first book to read of his. I would recommend Between these Sheets, Filthy Little Secret, and Tight End. These are the reason I enjoyed the author so much and should be tired out.
