RELEASE DATE: 18th February 2016
BLURB: Spencer Cohen is the guy who gets answers to relationship questions. Playing the role of the new lover, his job is to make his client’s ex realise one of two things: he doesn’t want to break up or he really does. Either way, his client gets answers.
The ex would either apologize and beg, or turn and walk. But in the end, Spencer’s client won. If he wanted his ex back and got him, it was great. If the guy walked away, then as hard it was for the client, he knew it was over. Regardless of the outcome, Spencer’s work was done.
Andrew Landon’s ex left him without so much as an explanation. But his sister can’t stand to see him miserable, so, much to Andrew’s dismay, they hire Spencer to be Andrew’s new boyfriend to get the ex back.
For Spencer, it is never personal. Merely a business transaction. No emotions, no strings, no complications.
Even a blind man could see how this would end.
There are some authors that are always at the top of my “Have to read” list and N.R. Walker is one of them. Every single book is an absolute little jewel.
When I first read the blurb, I imagined Spenser as an arrogant character, full of himself, but surprise, surprise, he’s nothing like that, he is something else entirely.
At work, he is a “pretend boyfriend”. His Clients are men and women who want to re-attract their ex-boyfriends. Basically, his job is to make their ex’s jealous and see what a big mistake it was in leaving them in the first place.
Andrew is a very quiet guy, who can’t get over the end of his relationship with his ex Eli, who left him without an explanation, saying he needed space – the oldest and most stupid excuse ever!
Because of Andrew’s sister and Spencer’s best friend, they meet and begin to work together to recapture Eli’s interest.
Eli is very marginal in the storyline, but what the author gave us, was enough to seriously hate him. How could someone like Andrew, love someone like that?
Spencer and Andrew soon build a good friendship. Andrew is very quiet and not self confident at all, he’s sweet and shy. And even Spencer, who is the so-called “expert”, you can still see his fragility. I don’t know why, but he reminds me of Charlie in the “Red Dirt” series.
I can’t say enough how sweet this book was, it’s full of tenderness with some wonderful characters. There is no actual sex in this book, unless you count some of Spencer’s fantasies when his feelings for Andrew begin to be something different from a business relationship, but strangely enough, the way the author wrote this book, you don’t miss it! The story is perfect as it is, sweet, engaging and realistic and don’t forget this is only book one. A lot of things have to happen yet!
I cannot recommend this new series enough, but let’s be honest here – I recommend every NR Walker’s book!
****I would like to thank the Author for the opportunity and privilege of reading this ARC. My review was an honest opinion of the book****
