Review Tour: Pretty In Pink by Jay Northcote

Cover Design: Garrett Leigh @ Black Jazz Design

Length: 58,000 words approx

Housemates Series

Book #1 - Helping Hand
Book #2 - Like A Lover 


Ryan isn't looking for a relationship with a guy--and Johnny isn't looking for a relationship at all.

Ryan's always been attracted to tall, leggy blondes--normally of the female variety. When Johnny catches his eye at a party, Ryan's interest is piqued even though he's never been with a guy before. The attraction is mutual, and the amazing night that follows opens Ryan's eyes to his bisexuality.

Experience has taught Johnny that love hurts. Staying single is safer, and there's no need for complicated relationships when hooking up is easy. When he moves in next door to Ryan, they're both interested in picking up where they left off, and it seems like an ideal arrangement: convenient, mutually satisfying, and with no strings attached.

Despite their best intentions to keep things casual, they develop an emotional connection alongside the physical one. Both begin to want more from the relationship but are afraid to admit it. If they're going to work things out, they need to start being honest--first with themselves, and then with each other.

Although this book is part of the Housemates series, it has new main characters, a satisfying happy ending, and can be read as a standalone.

5 Stars

I absolutely love this series and although some of the previous characters are featured throughout, it definitely works as a standalone, but the other books are great so if you haven’t read them, go start one-clicking now. You won’t be disappointed!

Ryan has suspected for some time that he’s bi and after meeting Johnny at a party he decides to test this theory. While he loves the sex with Johnny, he isn’t comfortable with his sexuality, but he can’t seem to stay away from Johnny. Johnny is confident and comfortable in who he is, but he’s been hurt in the past and has sworn off relationships, he’s only interested in a hook-up, but his heart might have other ideas.

I loved this story, but these guys could be frustrating. There were times I wanted to take them and knock their heads together, but the chemistry between them was out of this world and I think this may be some of the hottest sex that Mr. Northcote has ever written. My kindle practically had steam coming off it at one point.

I loved the premise of the story and it’s well-written and an easy read. Once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. I liked the progression of Ryan and Johnny’s relationship and I loved watching them fall for one another and discover and open themselves up
to new things.

This was a great addition to the series and I loved getting to catch up with some of the previous couples. A great book that was really enjoyable and a sexy read, I’d definitely recommend!
