I’ve gotten myself all harassed about writing ‘excellent’ critiques (despite the fact that my earlier critiques are hardly excellent) so now I am simply going to share my kneejerk ideas once I end one thing.
I completed … Boyfriend Materials by Alexis Corridor
What a beautiful and enjoyable learn — though as my first HFN (pleased for now), I discovered the top just a little unsatisfying (this guide made me uncover I am 1000% a Fortunately Ever After lady).
Our POV character is a complete sizzling mess; he begs a grumpy and buttoned up lawyer to be his pretend date to rehab his repute. Their relationship shifts from vaguely adversarial to pleasant to romantic, with inevitable (however charming to learn) bumps alongside the best way.
I acquired my spouse to start out studying this one by describing as a little bit of David-and-Patrick from Schitt’s Creek, though clearly enormous variations by way of plot and setting and all that. Corridor’s writing could be very humorous; the POV character Luc is snarky and unhappy, surrounded by a beautiful forged of family and friends and coworkers). The love curiosity, Oliver, is such a doll I am unable to even, however each Luc and Oliver must wrestle with some critical stuff of their lives, and that journey was simply as compelling because the romantic one. (Warmth ranking is about PG, by the best way, if that issues to you.)
There is a sequel (popping out subsequent yr, agony!) which made me notice that I’ve by no means learn a multi-part romance. Will or not it’s boring going by means of the identical romance beats in hopes of an HEA? Or perhaps that is the deal — it is HFN going into an HEA?
Anyway, tremendous enjoyable and tremendous cute and extra of that’s all the time wanted in my life!
