This was simply a wonderful romance! I pretty new to Sarina Bowen's writing and very new to Elle Kennedy's but they have both totally won me over. I was really excited to start reading this book and actually had to read just a bit as soon as it became available. I rarely start reading books right away so that really says a lot about my eagerness to read this book. This book was everything that I had hoped it would be and I had a fantastic time reading it.
I don't read a lot of MM romance and I am starting to wonder why that is the case because this book worked so well for me. I thought that the set up for this story was very well done. Keaton was trying to give his girlfriend exactly what she wanted for her birthday and he ended up with so much more. I had a pretty good idea where things would end up going but I had no idea how anything would happen.
I liked Keaton and Luke from the start of this book. I think that the fact that they have no idea who it is that they are talking to worked very well. The fact that they lived across the hall from each other was perfect. It was great being in Keaton's head while he tried to figure out what it is that he really wanted. Luke was pretty confident in some areas of his life but he did not want to depend on anyone for anything.
Luke and Keaton really made a wonderful couple. The chemistry that the shared was off the charts whether they were texting or face to face. I loved the way they both seemed to come alive when they were together. I felt like their true selves really came out during the scenes where they were together and let the rest of the world just go away. These two were seriously hot together.
I would recommend this book to others. This was a book that hooked me at the very beginning and held me until the very end. I loved going on this journey with Keaton and Luke and can't wait to read more from this talented writing pair.
I received a digital review copy of this book from the author/publicist.
This was good. I really liked the set up for this story and thought that Keaton and Luke were both great characters. I had a great time with this one.
