This book is about walking away from Love and then returning for it, as in the case of Drake. For Tyler, it is a book about Love lost and at this point in his life is ready to let it go.
It’s Summer so if you are looking for a beach or pool read, this is just the one for you. I was really impressed with this breakout book from Jenna Kendrick. The characters were well written, I was able to get a sense of each of the characters and I wasn’t lacking for “what about”. This was accomplished by letting the characters unfold through the eyes of each of our MC’s, instead of the author ‘telling’ us.
The romance was very endearing, Tyler and Drake have years of history and I really felt the connection that they had for each other. I felt Tyler’s reluctance to allow Drake back in his life and I had to smile at how he allowed him back in his bed. That coincided well with the history and the intimacy that the characters had for each other, it also showed Tyler’s vulnerability when it came to Drake even though his mind wanted to push him away his heart wouldn’t allow it.
I commend this author on their debut story.
With Tyler ready to move on, Drake’s run out of second chances.
Tyler Bryant and Drake Sutton met one day on the beach in Oahu and never parted—until Drake was offered the movie role of a lifetime and abandoned Ty to pursue fame and fortune. Tyler has moved on to another beach in another country, but he’s left his heart behind. And yet, every time Drake shows up he can’t help but let him back into his life. When he gets a familiar phone call, Tyler vows this is it, one last hook-up to provide a lifetime’s worth of memories.
Drake Sutton is tired of living a lie when it means not having the love of his life by his side. This booty call is going to be his last—because he’s determined to get Tyler back for good. But Drake’s going to have to go way off-script to make Ty believe.
