    425This one's a WIN It's light on the angst and high on the sweetness steam Austin may be all wrapped up in his long time friend Vinnie but that doesn't stop him from ogling the hot ginger model in his figure drawing class It doesn't help that Sean is naked or that Austin can't stop looking at his dick It's immediately obvious that Sean wants from the relationship than Austin who insists he's not looking for anything serious Never mind that Austin can't go three days without seeing Sean and that every time they get together they burn up the sheets Austin's used to practically begging Vinnie for sex but Sean loves getting down and dirty For the first time Austin gets what it's like to have a man's attention focused on him There's a scene during their first camping trip together when Austin insists he can't drink coffee and then admits WHY which is reminiscent of my first camping trip with my college boyfriend Total LOL material right thereAustin almost mucks the whole thing up by holding on to the idea of Vinnie He's lucky Sean is so forgiving And he really is Sean is an awesome MC secure with himself patient easygoing and a god in bedWe get only Austin's POV but Sean is a fully sketched character Austin and Vinnie talk things through and Vinnie is hurt that Austin's moved on but Austin can't worry about that any He has a real boyfriend now a boyfriend who takes him camping brings him food encourages his art and gives him mind blowing orgasms I'm not with you for the sex Sean not only for the sex although it's definitely the best I've ever had in my entire life By far You make me see things differently And I'm different with you Because you make me feel safe And wantedSean cleared his throat That's good then Really good I'm glad to hear it Because I want you like whoa Always The guys get good at communicating and resolving conflict which bodes well for any relationship I consider the ending a tentative HEA All the love for the epilogue Feelz galore baby

    45 StarsDear BookThis is only the second book in the series I've read And I really only read it because my homie Lili said I would like it She was right I loved it I don't even know how to explain it The writing was engaging it sucked me in from the get go It read super uick or maybe I just didn't want to put it down There was good steam And believe it or not I loved all of Austin's inner thoughts Except when they were about Vinnie Every time his name came upThere was the potential for drama when it came to Vinnie and I am so glad to say that it was handled to my liking So yes this one was low angst and dramaDefinitely recommend this one Thanks again for looking out for me Lili

    This one left me not sure exactly what to think Did I like the book? SureDid it leave me feeling that there were enough interactions between Austin and Vinnie? Uhhh noIt felt like Austin and Vinnie said barely 100 words to one another on page for the entire book I needed to be shown about why I should care about what they had or could have possibly had to make this story work fully work for me So did I love the book as a whole? EhhhI did really like Austin a lot And I kinda loved Sean but he was written as nearly the perfect guy which felt a bit too ' wrapped up with a bow' for me Sorry that's just how I feltAustin The one thing that I felt out of place regarding Sean was what he said after the big reconciliation scene I'm not sure if Sean's Big Fuck Up was really necessary as what he said seemed so out of place when compared to his previous pursual of Austin That part felt a bit contrived to meSean The story was extremely sex centric as they essentially started out being a no strings attached repeating hook up before the actual feels came into play for Austin The feelings were there the entire time for Sean kept simmering just below the surfaceBut when things started getting serious that was when I actually began enjoying the book I just wish it had happened a bit soonerAs the book ends with a nice epilogue Austin and Sean have a strong HFN with hopes of an HEA if they put in the reuired effortAlthough this one wasn't all out love for me I'd still rate it at around 325 starsI'll be reading Vinnie's book next so I'm curious to see how he changes after seeing his ' one that got away' happily in love with someone else and reevaluating his priorities and level of control that his parents have over the way that he lives his life My ARC copy of the book was provided by the publishers through NetGalley in exchange for a fair unbiased review

    Love Me Like a Rock was a real delight to read and SeanAnd you have been inducted into my Book Boyfriend Hall of Fame I loved EVERY SINGLE THING ABOUT HIM Patient funny loving caring and a dirty mouth to boot Oh and he's a redhead I think Amy Jo Cousins wrote him with me in mind For real Well that's my story and I'm sticking to itAnyhoo back to business Love Me Like a Rock is book six of the Bend or Break series We finally get Austin's story Austin and Vinnie have been wrapped in this weird friends with benefits relationship except that it's all on Vinnie's terms Austin has been wanting for a long time and is getting tired of being just an afterthought to his best friend After a nude sitting for art class Austin hooks up with the model and figures it'll be a one time thing except he keeps going back for My highlights Sean ^^^^Look back to the beginning I don't think I have to elaborate Austin He was such a great narrator and I loved being in his head I believe the author did an excellent job developing his character This book had a great steady pace It just flowed I started last night thinking to just read a couple of chapters and ended up reading the whole thing Unputdownable Sexy times For me this was Amy Jo's steamiest book and it was sweet and dirty As far as relationship development this is a slam dunk I also enjoyed the feel good vibe of the story I felt like I was wrapped up in my warmest softest warm blanket The end I know these guys are in it for the long haul and will do what it takes to make it work Do I have anything negative to report? NOPECan it be read as a standalone? Yes I read this one out of order and I didn't feel lost I have to give this charming fun sexy enjoyable story 5 Stars I often re read favorite books and this one will be added to my ComfortI Need a Pick Me Up List HIGHLY RECOMMENDED This review is cross posted at Gay Book Reviews

    A great listen Low angst Lots of sexy timesAustin showed growth Sean was a bit too perfect Still I enjoyed the novella as much as I’ve enjoyed all the other books in the great NA series

  6. Erika Erika says:

    Ok this book novella? was really friggin' cute and I say this as someone who has not read books 2 5 I'll let you know now that you don't need to read those if you haven't already because the story stands on its own This one’s about Austin a curly haired artist who's got some form of ADHD The only thing that calms his brain down and allows him to focus is his art and he comes to find out Sean the red headed geologist Here's the thing though Austin is pretty into his old friend and now college roommate Vinnie who doesn't reallllly seem to reciprocate those feelings So instead of sitting around pining for Vinnie Austin decides to hook up with mountain man Sean who's had his eye on Vinnie for about a year now but only the one time Next thing he knows Austin who always forgets his phone places has started keeping his phone with him at all times so he can cyber stalk this Sean guy Umm In a not creepy way of course One hook up turns into another And then another and another until they're pretty much boyfriends Except Austin has made it clear from the beginning that he's not looking for anything serious because of that whole Vinnie thing Sean says he's ok with this but is he? Is he really? You'll find out won't you?What I found super refreshing about this story was that it wasn't clear right from the outset that these two guys would end up married with kids like it is in so many other romance novels I especially liked that it had a really great HFN ending instead of the ever popular Really Big Gay Wedding and what a welcome change that is I also enjoyed that they talked and acted like somewhat mature college guys and not like 40 year olds with mortgages and their own kids to worry about Because of this nothing about the story or their relationship felt forced; it just flowed The sex was hot and plentiful but not overly abundant and even The Big Misunderstanding felt realistic and not overwrought So yeah I liked it I liked it a lot and I think you will too I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    This was a nice short and steamy read I haven't read any other books in this series so this can be read as a stand aloneAustin is an art student in college and has been pining for his best friend Vinnie for 6 years Vinnie however only wants to get it on once a month and he usually has to be drunk or tipsy So you can imagine that Austin is a bit frustrated He has been in love with Vinnie for so long and waiting for the man to come to his sences really starting to annoy him Alsohe's horney So when Austin is in his drawing class he get's a hard on for the naked man modelling for them Apparently he's not alone in his attraction because the model Sean approaches him after class and they have a vey steamy get together right there They exchange numbers and go for a repeat Austin however makes it very clear that this is just about sex and that he's hung up on another man Weeks pass and these guys are hanging out a lot while also screwing each others brains out Austin is aware that Sean might be hoping for but he just can't seem let go of Vinnie How long will Sean be willing to stay with Austin and when will Austin get his head out of his ass I really enjoyed this one and there were parts that were so funny I almost peed my pants I do however have some issues with this story I just got so sick and tired of Austin thinking about Vinnie every other page This to me was really irritating I understand that he had a thing for his best friend but did it have to be mentioned so freaking often ?? Also I had no idea who Vinnie really was I don't know if there was about the two of them in previous books but Vinnie was almost non existant in this one So I had no idea about what their relationship really entailed They didn't seem like very best friends to me I don't think they were even talking to each other muchThis was all a bit weird and confusing to be I think I would have liked it better if there was about Vinnie and Austin's relationship and past together Vinnie was being painted as the bad guy here and I just wasn't convinced that that was justifiedAn oke read for me and I will definitely read the next book because I want to know who Vinnie really is 35 stars from me ;

    25 starsI just didn’t feel itThis story begins with Austin drawing a nude model A nude model who he can’t stop admiring in a non artistic wayAustin and the model Sean hit it off after the session and start flirting with each other This flirting leads to sex and all of a sudden they are hanging out and having sex on a regular basis But Austin tells Sean it can’t be anything serious between them because he is kind of hung up on someone else That someone else is his friend Vinnie who he has a friends with benefits thing with don’t worry this is only once a month and once Austin meets Sean he doesn’t sleep with VinnieI had a hard time getting a good feel for Austin I felt so detached from him and the rest of the characters I also thought the first half was all tell and no show we especially get told about the friendship between Austin and Vinnie but for the first half we don't even see VinnieI had a really hard time believing in the friendship between Austin and Vinnie They were supposed to be very close friends but they never hung out and they never even talked to each other But for some reason I was told to believe Vinnie was so important in Austin’s lifeThere were times I really did enjoy this story the camping scene was great but overall I had a hard time liking it

    I feel like jumping with joy and doing cartwheels and all that crazy stuff that show I'm happy with this book After the disaster that Rafi's book was Real World wasn't that great either I was cautiously optimistic that Austin's story would be a lot better I wanted the same uality writing I got used to getting from Amy and not even the fact that Austin and Vinnie weren't going to be happy together didn't deter me from giving this book a tryThe first thing that convinced me this was a turn in the right direction was the use of a ginger character; I just LOVE gingers Apparently Austin does as well because even though he's still hoping for a relationship with his long time friend Vinnie he doesn't lose the opportunity to ogle Sean the model in his art class Or rather he doesn't exactly ogle Sean per se because Austin can't take his eyes off of Sean's dick This book was humorous and I liked the vibe and chemistry I got from Austin and Sean Those two couldn't keep their hands off each other and had sex pretty much whenever the need struck them There isn't much angst but the difference between the expectation those two had when it came to their relationship created enough intensity to keep things interesting Sean wants something serious from Austin and he doesn't fail to let Austin know Even though Austin is still hung up on Vinnie he can't help but start to see how much better Sean is how much alike they are Austin isn't used to being wanted but has always dreamed about it so little by little he starts to see Sean for who he really is a devoted dedicated man who always makes Austin feel wanted and feel certain he's got Sean's attention at all times I would've really liked to have Sean's POV as well the story is told in Austin POV only but I appreciate how well written and powerful Sean's character is He is easy to understand and connect with and his personality comes through loud and clear The dialog was so well written at times I felt like I was seeing things through Sean's pov especially during their first camping trip You see Austin NEEDS that first cup of coffee at the beginning of each day only coffee makes him poop Austin knows nothing about pooping in nature so when told he needs to dig his own hole he's horrified For Austin digging his own poop hole is akin to digging his own grave at least that's what I got from the whole thing That's some seriously hilarious shit no pun intended you don't want to skip on This was awesome and I almost wanted to give if 5 stars but it wasn't uite there I wanted it to be longer and maybe see some resolution between Vinnie and Austin I know we'll probably get that in the next book but I'm not good at waiting Great book
