Fake Boyfriend by Jerry Cole Review
Fake Boyfriend: M/M Straight to Gay First Time Romance - Jerry Cole

Vincent Diaz's life was extraordinarily boring. He worked a boring job and went home to his boring life knowing he'd given up all of his dreams of being an artist and creating for a living. That was when Bryan Andersen barged into his life, smiling, laughing, and pulling him close, declaring him to be his new boyfriend— whether Vincent liked it or not.

Bryan had recently broken up with his girlfriend, Dana, who handled the breakup less than well, leading Bryan to come up with the ultimate excuse— that he had "realized he was gay" and that's why he couldn't see her anymore. She didn't buy it. He needed to find an alibi and quick! Together, Vincent and Bryan fake dating to throw Bryan's ex-girlfriend off his trail, but Dana doesn't give up easily, and Vincent and Bryan find their quick-forming friendship may be leading to a relationship that's not as fake as they had intended it to be....

 

Review

 

This was a quick finding yourself kind of romance. It has a gay for you theme which I don't care for much but fake relationships are a favorite theme of mine and this one was fun. 

I enjoyed the aspect of the story where both Bryan and Vincent grew as people and found the courage to go after what they wanted to have richer fuller lives.

The stalker element was a bit over the top just in that while Bryan eventually did go to the police, there could have been much more discussed about domestic abuse and stalking of men by women.

They both could have come to a deeper understanding of their sexuality as well.

But it was a quick enjoyable read with some really good parts but shallow and a lack of realism in places and details of location made it not as good as it could have been.

He's Worth It
He's Worth It - Jerry Cole He's Worth It - Jerry Cole Chris Whittaker is just getting out of an relationship and decides to start living his life as he wants being free of any encumberment of a bad relationship. He decides to join an acting troupe.

Jacob Landry is an aspiring actor. When he meets Chris on his first day at the troupe he offers to give Chris some free acting lessons. He's not even sure why he does it.

Both Chris and Jacob feel a pull to each other. Chris is straight but not worried about pursuing anything with Jacob. Jacob has his own concerns with entering into a relationship with a straight guy. Chris's ex-girlfriend has her own thought on the matter though too.

It was an okay read. It wasn't an overly complicated story and didn't really stir any strong emotions in me during the read.

I wasn't invested in Chris and Jacob during the reading. Sophia didn't come off as crazy as I thought she would be from the blurb. She was actually just more annoying and a pest. Chris's passive aggressive behavior with dealing with her made me want to shake him.

I'm not sure why Jacob would let a a stranger (Sophia) into his house to tak about Chris, ESP since Chris told her why they broke up.

The communication between Chris and Jacob was at first nice since a healthy relationship needs good communication but after a while it became a little too much. I'm glad everything seemed to work out.

The Road Least Traveled
The Road Least Traveled - Jerry Cole The Road Least Traveled - Jerry Cole Greg Marsh CEO to Turbo Metro Drilling (TMD) has come across a situation with protesters on his first European project.

Alexander Petrou is an archaeologist trying to preserve the history of the city he lives in.

They clash because they have different objectives concerning the drilling of the tunnel in for the city in Greece. Alexander manages to make an impression on Greg with how important the tunnels Greg’s company is tunneling through are by sharing some of the city’s history with him. This changes Greg’s outlook on the project a little but he knows he’s also has to carry out his job.

Like some of the authors other works, this story was slow building. I stuck it out until it got to the more sensual parts and I quite enjoyed it. I’ve always liked characters who came off as good guys and Greg and Alex, both are that even if their actions sometimes seemed not to be. Alex passion for his city was heartening and he really sold me.

Troubled Waters
Troubled Waters - Jerry Cole Troubled Waters - Jerry Cole It was a okay read. I liked Tyler, I thought he was a smart kid. Thornton, I detested and I wish readers could have seen karma work it's magic on him. I hated that he used Lorette and Darren as he did and he was family. I really wish Darren didn't have to pay his uncle an obscene amount of money for the water rights. It really got me heated over the issue. I didn't think what happened to him matched what he put Darren through.

Game of Hearts
Game of Hearts - Jerry Cole Game of Hearts - Jerry Cole Bjorn Falk, gaming name Allegiance and he’s going to attend his first tournament with his e-sports team. Bjorn hopes by winning he can prove to his mom that what he does is a career and he is doing something with his life.

Michael (Mickey) Campbell, gaming name Atlanta, is a pro e-sports player. He’s a bit of a celebrity in the e-sports world and has made a name for himself in the gaming community. When he first catches sight of Allegiance he falls hard for him. He can’t help but approach him only to be shot down when Bjorn tells him he’s not gay.

Mickey can’t help himself and is a glutton for punishment. He actively seeks Bjorn out. Bjorn is more than willing to spend some time getting to know his idol. One thing lead to another and the next thing they know the gaming community is blowing up about a leaked picture of what looks to be Bjorn and Mickey cuddling out in the open.

This was actually a pretty cute read. Bjorn innocence and excitement of meeting his idol Mickey was pretty darn cute. Age isn’t specified for either Bjorn or Mickey but their interaction was quite endearing in how they danced around each other like two lovestruck teenagers. Normally so much back and forth and indecisiveness would vex me but it really didn’t.

I actually wished it was a tad bit longer maybe another chapter or two chronicling how Bjorn and Mickey got on after the end of the tournament. Bjorn and Mickey navigating their relationship and balancing their e-sport career were intriguing and new. This is the first e-sports romance I’ve read and ‘m hoping it won’t be my last.
