This month I made the mistake of over committing on book reviews, what I didn't take in to account was the awesome books being released and the group challenges I had committed to. But I got a small gap and couldn't help but read the last letter by Rebecca Yarros and when I put that down in a big puddle of tears I knew I needed something fun and uplifting. So I jumped on GoodReads and this popped up in my feed.
And when I went to the kindle store it popped up again in KU so I took that as the sign from the universe and played hooky from my commitments because that blurb sounded like everything I could want. And honestly it was great. The perfect pick me up. But it wasn't completely what I expected, although luckily for me it was better.
Both characters were great and I really loved that there was so much history between them that gave their relationship so much depth and background. There was a lot of emotion and genuinely great story writing for a book with laugh out loud moments.
The background characters added so much to the whole thing as well and I am now dying for the release of the next one. And my curiosity has me dying to know what Beck wrote in that damn tweet. I am absolutely kicking myself that I didn't already sign up for it.
Reviewed on behalf of 3 Degrees of Fiction book blog. Love, love, love anything and everything by Pippa Grant. Her books are incredibly well written, hilariously funny and with characters that are so fabulous I wish that they were actually people that I knew. I loved this first book in Pippa's new Bro Code series. And as much as it is written with Pippa's usual humour, there is also a heartbreaking part to the story that changes everything for Ellie. Wyatt is a wonderful character. I enjoyed how he is with his son, and especially with Ellie. He was her rock at times, even when she had this stupid notion that bad things happened when they were together. Those parts were also hilarious as much as they were frustrating for Wyatt. Next up is Beck's book, and the way this story ended in regards to him, I can't wait till his book is released.
OK so I've read a few of Pippa's books before and loved them, but this one I didn't love. I couldn't get into it, so many characters were introduced from the very beginning and it was all over the place. I literally couldn't keep up with what going on. This is not like the rest of her books that I've read where it's a page tuner and you can just get immersed it in and just read. I read to chapter 3 and then had to skip most of the book, and read the end chapter, which was still all over the place with so many characters, jumping back and forth, and I just couldn't read it. I was a bit disappointed as I was excited for this book and the new series as I love Pippa's books, but this one was way off the mark for me. *** SORRY PIPPA***
