My rating: 3 of 5 stars
There’s some seriously douchey behaviour in this one as both MCs have truly horrible exes but thankfully all turns out well in the end.
I loved Jon and Liam and, while they both seemed to me to be younger in my head than their stated ages, they had a wonderful dynamic together.
The sex is scorching hot as I’d expect and, while there’s a fair bit of it in a relatively short novella, none of it felt out of place.
It also has a super sweet epilogue.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Kieran gets his own love story in this one and it a real delight.
The virgin and the manwhore is an absolutely perfect description of these two men who not only fall in love without really realising it, but also because it accurately highlights the wonderful trope used in this opposites attract romance.
Kieran is, of course, the roommate who helped Ethan and Rhett realise they still loved each other and who ended up with Seb for a short while. He’s unashamedly honest about how much he loves sex and avoids relationships so this book took great delight in having him fall for the inexperienced Alex.
I loved this pair, as they clumsily found themselves slipping into a monogamous relationship without even realising while the world around them watched them fall in love.
This book’s hot, with lots of first times for everything and Alex proves to be an adept pupil. It also has a wonderful epilogue and lots of appearances from the rest of the series’ cast.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Oooh this one’s a toughie to rate because one of the MCs was an utter dick in the past and, while this is a second chance romance, it doesn’t have the same depth as a usual frenemies to lovers narrative would.
Luke was a serial cheater when he was with Seb but we only ever get the story from Seb’s POV so Luke, even when he apologised, never gives an explanation.
I guess we’re just supposed to assume he was young, selfish and an arse. The problem is that without the insight, and a full explanation, Seb just then comes across as a bit of a doormat, unable to resist the sex.
But, having said all of the above, LA does do enough to demonstrate that Luke is still in love with Seb and that he appreciates how much he screwed up. Still, even with the epilogue a year down the line, I’m not as sure as I’d like to an out the HEA.
