I had a couple issues with Brett. I felt like he was written as closer to 19 or 20 years old than 25. He felt immature, and yes, bratty, quite often. I'm also not quite sure why he suddenly decided to look Lan up after 10 years and why he felt he loved him so much, so quickly. Lust, yes. Love, nope. He really didn't know who Lan had become and Brett is superfast with the L word. Why did he wait 10 years? I liked the secondary characters. The dialog felt real, especially between Lan and his friend Rondo. I'd like an epilogue to see what Brett decided to do about his job and if Lan turned his new enthusiasm into better gigs/music.
2) I’m not into rock stars. Like, I have an active aversion to them. “Rock star romance?” No thank you… I click off those pages as fast as I can. BUT… this is a one-click author for me. I adore her storytelling style, her characters, and the way she makes me care AND makes it hot, so when I get a new release notice from her, I don’t bother to read the blurb, I just buy. (Usually after a high-pitched squeeeeee of excitement, LOL!) And with this one, I figured I’d at least peek at the first chapter and see if I was going to be able to stand reading about a rock star… answer: OH, **** YEAH! First, because the “rock star” thing is just… man, it’s just a perfect part of this particular story. Not overpowering, but pulled through so well so that it’s totally believable in relation to his character. Second, music, and being a rock star (so to speak) is effortlessly and believably incorporated in Lan’s “voice.” Again, kinda going back to #1. I still won’t be looking for rock star romances, but it just reaffirms the one-click, I’ll-read-everything-she-writes status of this author for me.
3) It’s f’ing hot. Spanking and discipline aren’t even my kink, but dammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmnnnnnn… :D
4) Single POV. What??? When does that ever happen? Not very often on my reading list. I’ve gotten so used to reading alternating POV in m/m that I thought it might be off-putting. Instead, it was refreshing. I loved seeing it all through Lan’s eyes only. Partly because it allowed us to go deep with him, and partly because it just gave the story a perfect flavor, as Brett was (re-)discovered through his eyes.
5) Brett. Just… Brett. Hahahaha! I adored him. Why? Because of everything. His cockiness and his stubbornness and his vulnerability and his strength, and the way all of those things came together to make him a real person —> Lan’s perfect match.
6) THAT kind of love. You know, the one-and-done, you’re-it-for-me, you-and-only-you… like, sorry. But I’m sold. You had me at, “I screamed your name with the first guy who f’d me.” *Snicker*
7) Coming to peace with the past. I won’t put a spoiler thing, but for real, sometimes cutting off what’s toxic is the healthiest thing to do. I liked that bit of the story.
8) The whole selfless-for-your-friends thing. Again, no spoilers, but <3 <3 <3 Rough-with-a-heart-of-gold is going to get me every time.
9) First person. The perfect POV to really get in Lan’s head. So much fun! Even when I wanted to shake him, even when his repetitive angst for the first half of the book was bordering on too much, I could deal with it, because a) I *was* in his head, and b) the author made me see that, yes, he really would be that hung up on his issues, because c) she wove in his backstory and fleshed it out and showed me WHY he felt that way in a way that made it 100% believable.
10) Happy endings. Every single hot-and-steamy one throughout the book *grin* … and most of all, the super sweet one at the very end that left me smiling. Because really, what’s better than a book that gives you ALL the feelz? The naughty ones and the ones that make you sigh and believe that love like that really exists? (Answer: nothing… nothing at all is better, and I’ll definitely re-read this one again!)
11) Bonus, except it’s not really a “thing I loved” about this book. It’s more like a reality check / warning / reminder-to-self for scheduling future reading time: Remember that bit up in #2 about “just peeking at the first chapter?” Sigh. I should know better. After all, I lost a previous day to binge-reading her entire catalog after I discovered her. But this? Half a day later, after I’d blown off all my scheduled work for the day, both my kids, and a few other responsibilities, I realized my “quick peek” had leveled up to a binge-read, cover to cover. So good. Sooooooo good. Sucked for my personal productivity, but totally worth it. :D
