“If Nick were on a quest to return the One Ring to the fiery pits of Mount Doom, Jai Hazenbrook would totally be the hot-as-fuck elf in tight leather pants who could shoot the left testicle off an orc at a thousand paces. Whereas Nick, of course, would be the short hairy-footed guy who liked beer and fireworks and second breakfasts. Even in his fantasy worlds, Nick is a realist.”
➦This. book. was. funny. And also cute and sweet. It tried to be sexy too, at times, but funny suddenly burst in to take over.
➦Like, s’cuse me! i know you’re trying to get it ON, but I got an awkward joke to tell and I promise it will be all worth it! And now that I’m done, carry on…
➦But now you’re laughing and the moment is gone but yes, indeed, it was totally worth it. It’s that kind of book. In a nut shell, it’s about two guys falling in love while trying to be in a casual summer relationship.
➦Nick, having just graduated high school, is having anxiety about what to do with his life. He is expected to attend college but he’s not quite sure he’s ready.
➦That’s exactly how I felt after high school! hehe In short, adulting sucks. Nick is working at the office on a construction site. Not as much working, though, as ogling a hot guy by the name of Jai. So after a while Nick decides to bring his best game and be an adult and go talk to Jai.
➦And you know what, sometimes, being honest and straight to the point gets you places. Because when Nick straight up tells Jai he’s like to “blow him” things escalate fast. And besides the fact that they get caught and fired for fooling around on a job, they still have each other… right?
➦Read this book if you enjoy M/M and you want some laughs. If you enjoy T.J. Klune’s books, the ones with humor in them, you will probably like this one too. You’ll find out how Jai and Nick’s relationship develops from a fling into friendship/love and how Jai helps Nick with that whole adulting business. 🙂
