I definitely couldn’t rely on mum or my ugly half-sisters Anastasia and Drizzela (it’s actually Avery and Madison, but I prefer to call them after the ugly stepsisters in Cinderella). To put it mildly, they’re vile.
I am not a homophobe. It’s just that it’s not safe for a pretty guy like me. I mean, it’s like dangling some prime rib eye steak in front of some hungry hyenas and trying to tell them they can’t have it.
His hands find my hair, pulling it back so I don’t vomit into it. God, he’s a keeper. Well, at least that’s what a normal woman looking for a relationship would think.
I was deeply conflicted and struggling through most of this book, as I couldn’t seem to find a likable trait in the main female character of Brooke, other than her snarky sense of humor. She was in fact, rather horrid, as was most of her family, although I adored her feisty nana to bits. Brooke was a prickly tantrum tossing drama queen, skanky party girl, and horrible human being. She appeared to have a default setting of self-destruct and ruined anything good before it could possibly develop while continuing on with the not so good far too long and despite knowing better. She did not date as she preferred mindless sex and bootie calls and had never had a relationship, however, her alcoholic slag of a mother had indulged in more than enough of them to make up the difference. Brooke was loud, crass, insecure, immature, and as fickle as a middle school-aged girl. She was a hot mess and annoyed me to no end, yet I couldn’t seem to stop reading her story… I fear there must be something wrong with me! In contrast, although I’m not one for tatted men I was in a total swoon over the sweet and thoughtful Nicholas, despite his love of zombies, and I wanted to pull Brooke’s hair and slap her into the corner for an attitude adjustment for her heinous treatment of this precious man. The storyline was laced with earthy humor that zigged and zagged with embarrassing situations, clever observations, and amusing scenarios, regardless of Brooke’s ill tempers, cruelty, and thoughtless and impulsive behaviors.
Both Brooke and Nicholas are kind of cut from the same cloth; Brooke has never known her father as he disappeared before she was born, and Nicholas' mum left when he was just 7 years old (though Brooke has made the decision to find her father now). Due to their fractured family past, neither "do" relationships, but they can't help but be drawn to each other.
I have to say, I didn't enjoy this as much as I wanted to. I thought the story would focus a little more on Brooke and finding her dad, but it felt a bit anticlimatic. Brooke herself was a little annoying, with her snap decisions without thinking of consequences and blaming everyone else. Nicholas was a bit disappointing; after the amount he told Brooke he was possessive and bad for her, he didn't really live up to it. I thought he was quite sweet!
That aside, I did like the story as a whole. It was great to meet the other guys again, and I loved that part of it took place at Brighton Pride. Secrets were uncovered, and relationships developed. There were laugh out loud moments, as well as the usual argh's and aww's I like from a book, so a good all rounder in terms of emotion!
I didn't enjoy this one as much as others of Laura's I have read, but it is still worth a read and I will definitely read more from the author :)
Women have warned Brook about Nicholas; they said he's clingy and jealous and possessive. Qualities that may deem sweet to other gals, but also quite a turnoff to some. But Nicholas is more than just that, and when Brooke finally uncovers what lies beneath, she is in for a big surprise.
Love Uncovered is the next book in the Babes of Brighton series. I'm glad I was able to read the first book (Excess Baggage) and have kept up with the characters and their issues, personalities, concerns and activities. Although I wasn't impressed that much with Brooke, I thought she was a bit too much on the wild side and also self-centered and cocky. Can't say I like her much, but when she's with Nicholas, I thought she's okay. Despite the criticisms thrown at Nicholas' attitude, I thought he was the perfect guy who could tame Brooke, but time and time again, she hurt Nicholas in more ways than one and I couldn't stand her. I couldn't help but cry for Nicholas. The truth about his mom though, wow that was really shocking!
Somehow, it all boiled down to lack of trust and communication that broke their connection, but in the end, I liked how everything worked out.
Can't wait to read Alice's story next!
