“Probably not the first time he’s had come on his face.”
Arghh!! You have no idea how excited I am to have discovered this author who is so new she’s still shiny. I adored her first book, but Bart Goes To Brentwood, her second published novel, is one of my favourite books this year.
What I love most about I.M. Flippy’s books is the chemistry between the two main characters. And I don’t just mean sexual chemistry, although…well, I’ll get to that. But from the first moment her characters meet there is an instant connection and every time one of them opens their mouth to talk to the other, I hold my breath in anticipation of what is going to happen next. These characters are interesting, more than that, they’re fascinating, and I have no idea how hard the author has to work to tell these stories, to invent her characters, but she makes it appear effortless. Often quippy (yes, I think quippy should be a word) dialogue can feel forced and awkward, but I never get that feeling from this book. Instead I’m pretty sure I read it from cover to cover with a dopey grin on my face and maybe a happy tear in my eye.
While Robbie, one of MCs is an A-List celebrity, and Bart is an aspiring actor, this book didn’t really have the feel of the usual movie star stories. Perhaps because the majority of the book was set behind the gates of Robbie’s private estate, but I’m not usually a fan of Hollywood stories and, obviously, I loved this one. The tone of the book was light and hopeful, but the author also touched on addiction and homophobia. While these subjects added a more serious aspect to Bart and Robbie’s tale, I wouldn’t say they added real angst to the story. It added more emotion to some scenes, but didn’t darken the overall mood.
Did I mention sex? Wow, the sex. For the first time ever…EVER…an author managed to make a foot fetish sexy. Sorry Bart! Not a fetish! But hey, that took some mad writing skills to get me to unscrew my nose and get off my judgey high horse.
I appreciated the fact that Robbie realizing he’s bisexual rather than straight was no big deal. Like he points out, there’s enough messed up stuff in his life that being attracted to another man is way down the list of things to be concerned about. I also really liked what the author showed of Bart’s transgender sister and hope that her character is seen more in the second book.
So, speaking of the second book. I need it, and I need it now. Bart Goes To Brentwood doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, and it leaves the characters in a good place, but there is still so much that needs to be resolved. I absolutely can’t wait to get my grabby hands on a copy of the next story, A Day in Cleburne.
Review originally posted at Love Bytes GLBTQ Reviews
Something the author knows how to do extremely well is create amazing characters. I adored Bart and Robbie throughout the novel, and always wanted to know more about side characters like Jenny. Each character has such an expansive and well thought out backstory that doesn’t even need a lot of time on the page in order to get you to want more. Additionally the chemistry the author manages to develop between the characters is fantastic. Bart’s relationship with his sister Jenny is heartwarming and honest. Plus, many moments between Robbie and Bart had me swooning.
By far my favorite line in the novel is Bart expressing his fantasy by saying “It was difficult to live in a castle and not picture the rest of the fairy tale.”
It’s moments like this the author has sprinkled amongst the narrative that make Bart Goes to Brentwood a lovely delight to read. I’m waiting in anticipation for the continuation of Bart and Robbie’s story, and for more from this author.
Had mixed emotions about this book. In the beginning I felt it was too wordy and definitely too Hollywood . As the characters progressed and revealed their inner selves ,their hopes and fears I changed my mind. Having them fall in love was an added bonus.
The characters were just how I love them; flawed and broken. The writing was top notch and the dialogue was perfect. I highly recommend this one and I can't wait for the next installment!
My fisrt read by this author and Im hooked. When a book can literally make me feel all emotions that the characters are experiencing i know I've found my next favorite author. Can't wait for the book
