I don't know how she does it--nor do I care--but Lauren has a gift for giving all these HEA's their very own, unique, wonderful story. And when the couples from previous books show up, there's a separation somehow, but it feels like you're in the middle of all their conversations. That takes some great talent. I know I'm not the only one that feels like we know all these folks personally, but it's so easy to get surrounded in the tale, and you feel you're in the thick of things, and a fly on the wall of some dirty, naughty sh*t. Farewell to an awesome series! Is it too soon for an audiobook marathon of the series? I'm so glad Sebastian York got to wrap up this series. His narration of this book was beyond amazing! He gives you all the feels, and all the heat.
Patrick, whom we met in Joy Ride, gets his turn at love with Max and Chase's sister Mia. Only problem is, does he take a chance at sharing his feelings and she lives on the other side of the world!
What I enjoyed about this audiobook was the flow, pacing and timing that Sebastian York continues to do flawlessly, especially with Blakely's characters. It was like he was made to perform them. As Patrick, he provides charisma, manliness, humor and seduction. It was perfect. Oh and let's not forget Zeus. SebYo is Purrrrfect.
Grab your copy today and enjoy this book over S'mores! :)
We already met him in Joy Ride - he was the cute neighbor. And he was already interested in Max's sister back then.
And he still is. Mia is his dream woman. And he's ready to settle down.
Too bad that Mia lives in California!
But maybe he can convince her that New York is not too shabby a place to live - and fall in love in!
But Mia's business is in California and she's a bit scared to start something....
But she's already halfway in love with him and his cat!
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH THOSE TWO? HAPPILY EVER AFTER IN NYC OR CALIFORNIA??
READ THE BOOK TO FIND OUT! ☺
Another amazingly funny and adorable and sexy Lauren Blakely Male POV book!
I just love those. I want them to never end!!! I hope Lauren invents endless characters for this 'series'.
But everyone's married now - no more single guys! But I still hope we'll get more male POVs from Lauren!
This one was just as great as the others. It's just too adorably funny when a guy is telling us his story. So different from all those girl-POV books!
Patrick is mega adorable. He's not like all the other guys - scared of something serious! He wants serious - he wants to settle down with - preferably Mia - and his cat Zeus.
Zeus stole the show btw. He's a famous hiking cat! Patrick takes him on his hikes and canoe-rides! He already has a million Instagram followers! And I hate cats! ☺ But Zeus is cool!
(We also get a few chapters in his POV - and in those we hear a bit about what Mia is thinking too!)
It takes Patrick a while to convince Mia that he's her happily ever after - but we are thoroughly entertained while watching them fight for their happy end!
I so want Lauren's male POV books to become a tv-show one day! Come on Netflix - do this already!!!
► HARD WOOD was such an adorable love story! A hot guy and his famous cat looking for their happily ever after ... Perfect #RomCom! Hollywood please come and make something out of these book!! Readers, please run to your nearest amazon asap for your own PATRICK - this one is MINE!!!
I appreciated that there isn’t a drawn out, unnecessary drama angle that fills up the majority of the book. The lack go angst is so refreshing, and makes this book memorable. The characters are believable in their thoughts and actions. You can feel their emotions, understand where they’re coming from, and relate to them.
I loved that Blakely included characters from previous standalone within this series. They are presented and woven into the story without blurring this book’s classification as a standalone. You’re still able to enjoy this story and those characters without having read the other books, and I love that.
This male POV story is so romantic and sensual, and is paired with a playful, fun side. The smart writing charms, the witty, flirty banter makes you giggle and squirm, and the intoxicating chemistry keeps you turning the pages.
You’d think after so many rom-com’s, Blakely would burn out or get repetitive, but she is, high key, the queen of this genre. She knows the right ingredients and the perfect serving size of each to turn out hit after hit. You really cannot go wrong with Lauren Blakely. I highly recommend this book to readers looking for something with a good balance of lightheartedness, humor, and sensuality.
