The premise of a too-cool-to-be-true London ice-cream parlor just happening to be the serendipitous location where ten completely different men accidentally meet to form five completely ingenious couples is laced with laughter, off-the-wall plots, a lot of sex (sometimes), some rough sex (sometimes), but always hope, will have you buying the next one and the next one and the next one and the next one, and hoping for a sixth (or maybe plenty of others) each time.
Each book is an easy novella-length palate cleanser you can pick up anywhere you want to read but not deal with the next chapter of a full meal book--or really, as a just dessert for any other one you finish. Cheers! (P.S. I LOVED this one best).
Rob Barker’s day with Peril – excuse me, Pearl – had me in stitches at times. I have to admit that it took me a few pages to get to like Rob but as I got to know him better he more than grew on me. By the end of the book I was a fan of this snarky yet big hearted man.
Mick was loveable right from the moment he was introduced which made all the pain he subsequently went through that much harder to read about. On more than one occasion I wanted to give him a hug and tell him all would be fine. Thankfully Rob was there to do that job for me.
The slow emergence of a relationship between Mick and Rob was a joy to behold. The way these two big rugby players are almost shy with each other and both in fear of what their family’s reaction to them being gay might be was cute and a nice reminder that appearances rarely tell the full story. It was wonderful to read a story in which coming out of the closet played a big role without being the theme of the book. First and foremost this is the engrossing story of two men coming to terms with who they are and finding each other on their somewhat surprising journey.
Bells and Balls was extremely hot for a story that has little to no sex in it. It takes a good writer to make lust as hot – if not hotter – than any sex scene good have been, and Sue Brown did a wonderful job.
All in all this was a delightful story. I found it all but impossible to put the book down once I started reading and while the story is complete, I was sorry to have to say goodbye to Rob and Mick by the end of it.
Rob has fun plans for the weekend but they didn't involve babysitting his 5 year old niece that he doesn't know very well. He has now accepted that he has no choice but to spend the day with Pearl so he sets out for London and all the sights it has to offer. Rob takes his niece to an ice-cream shop called With A Kick. He is not thrilled when the shop is closed but the owners allow Pearl to stay for the private party. Rob is bored already until he notices the Santa at the party as he is one of his rugby mates.....Mick. Rob has always been hot for Mick but wasn't sure the feelings were mutual until Mick confesses he has the same feelings for Rob. They both agree to meet at With A Kick for a night party and no nieces or girls are allowed at this party!
I really enjoyed the authors writing style and the humour she uses with these characters especially Robs which was so much fun to read. This is my first novel by Sue Brown and it won't be my last by any means. Rob's nickname for his sister in-law was hilarious...NEMESIS and then that phone call with his brother was some great writing. I was completely cracking up as Rob was trying so hard to figure out why babysitting was so damn important and not clueing in at all until it was thrown in his face.
The real fun times begin at With A Kick as both Rob and Mick are attracted to each other ever since they started playing on the same rugby team. Neither of them is out yet but that doesn't stop them from falling for each other. Their road to being together is messy but so worth it. The author told their story of acceptance and love in such a beautiful and brilliant way. Her description of the characters and their families and how being gay affects everyone was so well done and in such a profound and realistic manor. I for one simply enjoyed this novel Bells and Balls by Sue Brown.
