Our man Hank has attracted some notice…

***Was given this book to read as a ARC and I can honestly say I really enjoyed this book. I will admit that I found it a little slow to start off with but once I got into it I couldn’t put the book down and read it in one sitting. I must stress I haven’t done this since fifty shades of grey.

I loved that it was written from a man’s point of view. I will definitely read more from this author and highly recommend this book to anyone

***I enjoyed this book. It’s full of interesting and complex characters. The beginning is very slow and I must admit that I might not have continued after the first hundred pages if the author hadn’t given it to me to review. I’m glad I kept reading. Once Hank gets to Snow Mountain things pick up and I couldn’t put this book down. As general fiction this book is great. If it’s a story of a wild time in Hank’s life it’s fascinating, a very enjoyable read.

***. I have mixed feelings about this one. I didn’t love it but it wasn’t ‘did not like’ either. I did like it. I actually loved that Henry was a down to earth guy and not really up to speed in the social scene, I never was either.  It felt like Hank’s story has only just begun and if there is a continuation of his story in another book I will definitely check it out.

***The story starts with an amazing show of nature displayed by Hank’s window. He and Mikey have been together for some time, and then it’s like we back in time to know their story. Mikey was graceful and certainly had several guys interested on her. But she wanted Hank. And it was not on a whim, she really liked him, and proved it telling him the whole scheme she used to be closer him.

There is a dialogue about dating I thought it’s cute:

“Then what are you looking for?” Mikey’s voice asked.
“A musical metaphor. Each of us has a note, or chord that defines us. We seek harmony for our chord. That implies we harmonize with someone else’s chord. It doesn’t need to be perfect pitch, just beautiful music.”
“I like your metaphor,” the voice acknowledged. “I think of a date as a short story. Each date begins with a blank sheet of paper. Time passes and a new story develops.”

***Love is… hopeful, promising, refreshing, innocent.
Desire is… tempting, deceitful, electric, dark
Do you stay true to Love or give in to Desire?
This was an entertaining story of how an innocent holiday job can quickly turn into something more. It was endearing and funny.

***Lee Debourg nails it again! I love this story from the male POV. Young, intelligent and handsome Hank sucks you in and takes you on his journey of life and love. This story is beautifully written by Lee. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next and then I didn’t want this story to end! I was savoring each page of this story! I will read anything Lee writes and I am impatiently awaiting for his next book!  I highly recommend this book and Concurrent Relationships by Lee Debourg! Get them both now!

***From the first chapter all the way to the last chapter I was glued to my tablet. I couldn’t put it down. While reading, I was constantly thinking and trying to connect the dots to fill in the spots that would later be revealed. This novel wasn’t a mindless read. It definitely had my wheels turning! Another reason why I rated it the way I did was because of the emotional level throughout the novel! I was always feeling something that came from the words on the page. Whether I was feeling sympathy for a certain character or anger from how several characters were behaving, it was definitely a roller coast ride. A fun one at that!
Oh and then there was that ending!!!!! That did it for me, all squealing and flailing of arms broke loose. Two thumbs up for that clever closure!
