Summary

Some things are sweeter than revenge.  

“I need a boyfriend.”  

Hearing those words from his very straight, very ex-best friend doesn’t put Nate in a helpful mood. Not only did Kellan Brooks’s father destroy Nate’s family in his quest for power, but Kellan broke Nate’s heart back in high school. Nate thought he could trust his best friend with the revelation that he might be gay, only to find out he was horribly wrong and become the laughingstock of the whole school. Kellan must be truly desperate if he’s turning to Nate now.

Kellan’s through letting his father run his life, and he wants to make the man pay for cutting him off. What better way to stick it to the bigot than to come out as gay himself—especially with the son of the very man his father crushed on his quest for money and power. Kellan can’t blame Nate for wanting nothing to do with him, though. Kellan will have to convince him to play along, but it’s even harder to convince himself that the heat between them is only an act....

An old favourite, now in audio!

I have owned this book since it came out the first time, back in 2012 and I have re-read it at least 4 times since then. It remains one of my favourite GFy novels, where the GFY is actually done right.

I love Mitchell's characters. They are real and flawed and, a lot of the time, kind of jerks. Nate is a case in point. He is so incredibly annoying that you kind of want to slap him. And yet, I can't help loving him. Kellan is a brat. He is manipulative and spoiled and yet, he is also sweet and so charming, that he wins you over.
I love how Mitchell is all about show instead of tell. This may be the number one reason why I have read almost everyone of her books several times.

The story may be a bit unbelievable, but it is funny and sexy and GFY/ straight guy virgins are my guilty pleasure. Mitchell can write sex like nobody else and the tension she can create between characters is smoking hot!

Highly recommend this and every other book in the series. I truly hope that the remainder of the series will be out in audio too soon! The narrator was new to me, but he did a fine job of narrating the story.

seemed underdeveloped.

I hope the next is better. I look forward to "reading " it. What will become of Geofflrey's bluster?

Spoiled rich boy learning to deal with life

Kellen and his dad have a falling out leaving him homeless and penniless. He turns to his once best friend for help both in making his father mad and a place to live until he finds a job. It is hard to like Kellen. He is spoiled, lazy and seems to want a lot form Nate.

Nate has always had a crush on his friend until in highschool Kellan turned on him and made him a laughing stock now he has turned up wanting Nate to play boyfriend for revenge.

The story did have a good premise. I never really connected to either character but with a side character Eli. This book was Ok. It started off slow but did get better. Chet Daniel gave a good narration.
If you like frenemies to lovers, revenge on daddy, fallen from grace, and a fair romance you may like this one.
