Synopsis: Trevor Daniels is feeling aimless. A recent college grad, he’s not sure what to do with his useless degree, and his family all but abandoned him after he revealed the truth about himself. But a friend’s suggestion that he take his chances on a reality show aimed at finding the next big boy band strikes a chord with him—until the show’s producers convince him to act like he’s in a relationship with a guy who’s not at all his type. It isn’t exactly love at first sight for Jalen Smith either—but lust just might push them in an unexpected direction. If only their secrets weren’t even more twisted than their sheets, threatening to cost them the win—and each other…
Impressions: I loved the first book in this series, and Trevor broke my heart a little in book 1, so I couldn’t wait for him to get his own, well deserved, HEA. I was not at all let down!
Jalen was adorable and so loving, and I loved learning about his family and his outlook on the world. Trevor is such a perfect match for him, with his fumbling health, his self esteem issues and his longing to be loved. The secondary characters were great and well developed, and the tv setting was well done. I admit that I am a huge fan of the “pretend to be together” trope, and Alberts does it so well.
It was so cute to watch Jalen and Trevor slowly fall in love and learn to trust in each other for the HEA they both wanted, but didn’t know they could ever have.
This series has not let me down at all, and I am looking forward to book 3!
