    Mandy*reads obsessively*
    Maybe 2.75 I pre ordered this book, the blurb sounded great and the cover was cute.It didn t quite live up to my expectation, the constant crying and tears and annoying behavior from Jamie and the arrogant and rude behavior from Max, not to mention him treating Jamie like he s 12 and the huge pile of guilt he keeps rehashing for wanting his ex best friend s little brother There is only 3 years age difference between the two The concept was good, Max helps Jamie out of a tough spot, they rekindle [...]

    Sadly another high hopes that fell rather flat.With a bit attention paid to details and less focus on trying to inject sudden drama this could easily of been a 4 star read, instead its like a 2.5.Jamie comes across as immature and the crying seemed out of proportion.Max was great at the start but then comes his internal thoughts on why he is no good for Jamie Talk about round and round, I got dizzy and bored listening to him.Mason was a pratt, but then he was only there to spice up the story w [...]

    The premise is something that I m interested in The execution has not been satisfactory, unfortunately view spoiler Max always loved his best friend s Mason younger brother Jamie They were several years apart, and during his childhood Jamie always looked up to Max, until one day when Max was 18, he came out to Mason The outcome was bad Mason rejected him and warned him to stay away from his younger brother Max complied completely, and he was out of their lives.Until several years later not sure [...]

    2.75 to 3 stars Sorry for the rambling review will tighten it up as I give it thought.We start the story in the present day about 10 years after Max and Jamie s brother Mason had a falling out The reader learns the reasons for the estrangement in bits and pieces as flashbacks and primarily as Max internally reminisces about the past There just isn t enough detail and backstory for me to buy in I liked Max fine as a character but found it very hard to understand what motivated him without backg [...]

    This review can be found at The Blog of Sid Love.This is the story of Max, who s built a content life for himself as a good police officer When he realizes that Jamie, his high school best friend s brother, has been arrested for possible prostitution, he simple can t believe it With permission from his captain, Jamie is released into Max s custody for the night One night is all it takes for Max s old feelings about Jamie to come to the surface But Jamie is no longer the sweet, innocent kid he us [...]

    Perhaps 2.5 stars The whole thing left me untouched The voice was distinct, but the flow was unbalanced Drama appeared out of the blue, only to vanish again without much excitement There are books by this author I liked much .

    Personally I think there was a lot of wasted potential here If it had been a novel rather than a novella we would have had tinme to get to know the stories behind the characters better Then the story could have developed naturally rather than having the forced feeling it did about it I certainly didn t hate it it was, as I rated it, okay, I just don t think it quite lived up to the promise of the blurb.

    I agree with all other reviews.Jamie s been behaving like a teen what s with constant crying and a super annoying attitude and Max whom I liked at first just turned out to have zero personality other, than his love caring for Jamie.They both ended up just irritating me, Mason s sporadic appearances just added to that along with the ridiculous storyline about Jamie being abused, thrown at the end.Alex was the only highlight for me.

    I m not sure how hight should rate this story, hm Truthfully, I did read many better, best friends to lovers, stories than this one, so that s leaves me only with two stars Something was definitely missing in this plot But okay we got HEA, which was good.

    I have to echo other reviewers and say that I loved the premise of this one, but was disappointed by the execution.Not at all even enjoyable to read, both main characters were horribly unsympathetic and the plot was frequently silly.

    I couldn t stand reading about Jamie whining and pouting and crying for one line Two very unlikable MCs, godawful dialogue, no chemistry between the MCs, and no emotional response from the reader, despite Jamie s frequent overwrought displays, make for a DNF 50%.

    not a bad read full review on booklikes.

    2.5 stars Jamie just seems to be a bit to much like a 12 year old It didn t help that Max treated him as if he were a kid It got pretty annoying at times.

    Sweet love story PG13 a cross between HFN and HEA.

    Life isn t easy It s a lesson that Max first learned when his mother died and his life changed forever After her death, his dad withdrew into himself barely noticing that Max was still around Mason is his next door neighbor and very best friend Jamie, Mason s younger brother, has wormed his way into Max s heart as well Jamie s constant chatter, epic imagination, and the look of hero worship in his eyes boosts Max s confidence and helps to draw him out of his shell It s almost enough to help Max [...]

    3 StarsA Live Your Life, Buy The Book ReviewThe description of the book sounded like it would be a sweet story about two people finding each other again In a way it was, but I had a hard time relating to the actions of the characters Max and Mason were best buddies growing up Mason s younger brother, Jamie, was always hanging around, trying to get Max s attention The three year age gap was significant during the time they were growing up together and Max looked at Jamie as a little kid, someone [...]

    C It starts with a great idea and the development of the idea works just fine What I think is missing is depth to the characters, I couldn t relate to them I find it interesting enough, but emotion wise was detached.Max especially, he was going through the motions, talking about the feelings, but it didn t really transmit to the reader, felt sort of empty, his voice was strong, but emotionless.Jamie was easier to relate to, he wore his heart on his sleeves Even though he was scared, confused and [...]

    The Novel Approach Reviews
    Jamie did not miraculously turn over a new leaf He continued to make mistakes, and while I felt him an irresponsible and conflicted character, I was glad that no drastic transformations occurred Though I would have liked to have seen of an impact made by freeing himself of the secret of his abuse, it was realistic to read that he was still a mess but was willing to try to change rather than morphing into a better and conscientious person, immediately.See the entire 3.5 star review at The Nove [...]

    Quite a short book The central character is a cop but don t expect the over dramatic stereotypical plots found in so many police related stories.Instead, this focuses on the thoughts and feelings of two guys, Max and Jamie, who are drawn to each other.I could imagine it being stage play with under the surface tensions.Shiloh manages to realistically articulate the inner turmoil of Max and, to a lesser extent, Jamie.The story doesn t have the meolodrama of do much m m writing, which I find refres [...]

    I didn t like the main characters, Jamie is immature and constantantly crying Max has no personality i just don t believe a police officer would accept this kind of behaviour from his boyfriend.I didn t like this book and the writing style of the autor.I won t be reading this one ever again and i would t recommend it.

    I read quite a few reviews about this one that were not very good but i actually enjoyed iteven though there were no full on sex scenes it was quite an enjoyable storya few things were left unanswered and if it had been a lot longer they probably would have beenbut in all an enjoyable read x

    I don t really know what to say about thislove the blurb and I always love friends to lovers stories, but this missed the mark for me Weird characterization, plot holes, and just inconsistencies kept me from fully enjoying this story And the ending IDEK.
