I know every review and comment about this book is going to mention bow ties, and I would dearly love to be an original, but that just isn’t happening. Because HOLY BOW TIES, BATMAN.
Sidebar: Watching Matt Smith’s Dr. Who will be a totally different experience after reading this book.
Blurb: Chad Lake only showed up at his sister's party for the free food, but when he spots an uptight nerd at the edge of the crowd, he can't resist trying to ruffle the guy's perfect bow tie and impeccable hair. The hottie's ready for him, though, and in the end, it's Chad who's left wide-eyed, his ears still ringing with the filthy things Bow Tie whispered in his ear. No one gets the upper hand on Chad. Ever.
Owen Hawkins has heard all about the cocky Adonis from Chad's sister--the same sister who holds Owen's career advancement in her hands. He has every intention of steering clear of the other man...until Chad's sexy taunts push him too far. There's something intriguing about Chad, and even though Owen knows that getting tangled up with the infuriating man is trouble, he can't seem to stay away...
Three things I loved:
- The humour. It is dry and smart and also completely goofy, especially when we’re hearing from Chad. Ah, Chad. He is currently at the top of my “Characters Who’d be the Most Fun to Drink Margaritas With” list. He is hilarious.
- The way Owen worried about Chad, even when Chad drove him absolutely crazy. I loved Owen’s caring nature, and we really got a chance to see it when he got concerned about Chad’s safety. He did his best to keep Chad physically in one piece (HELMETS, Chad!) but he also knew exactly what Chad needed to hear to heal his heart and his mind. Love Owen.
- Watching Chad figure out the next step in his journey. Chad was in a place that so many of us reach: sick of going nowhere but not sure where to go and a little bit scared to chase after and share his dreams. I loved watching him get brave enough to try to change his life.
Overall: two amazing characters who have super hot sexy times in and out of beds and BOW TIES. Highly recommended :)
