Release Blitz: A Little Bit Like Love by Brooke Blaine (Review)


A Little Bit Like Love, an all-new sexy STANDALONE MM romance from Brooke Blaine is LIVE!


A Little Bit Like Love by Brooke Blaine

Publication Date: July 27th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance/MM Romance

What if you had everything in the world you wanted…except the man you’d left behind?
Jackson Davenport, the charismatic, strait-laced heir to the Davenport fortune, has a secret. One he’s been hiding since he graduated from South Haven all-boys academy—and that secret’s name is Lucas.

When a work trip takes Jackson back to his old stomping grounds, memories of the year he shared with Lucas come crashing to the surface. With growing pressure from his father to settle down and take over the family business, Jackson knows he’s on borrowed time, and sets out to find the free-spirited daredevil he once knew.

But Lucas isn’t the same man he was eight years ago.

One night. A shattered heart. And an endless parade of nameless faces. Lucas Sullivan is South Haven’s ultimate playboy, a reputation he’s honed since the only boy he ever loved left without a trace. To the world, he’s brash and confident, an in-demand artist who spends his days designing one-of-a-kind pieces and his nights as king of the downtown scene.

Many have tried and failed to get past the barrier he’s carefully constructed, but it’s the shy, studious boy he once coaxed out of his shell who still haunts him.

Maybe it was a mistake. Maybe it was lust. Or maybe…it was a little bit like love.

5 Stars! 

Jackson had to leave Lucas without telling him anything back when they were still in high school eight years ago and now that he’s back in Savannah for a business meeting, he just can’t resist trying to find the one he was forced to leave behind. However, Lucas is very different from when they knew each other and he holds a grudge against Jackson, will Jackson be able to convince him to give him a second chance?

This book is quite the departure to what Brooke Blaine has us used to. It’s not a romantic comedy, even if it does have some humorous moments interspersed among the angstier plot. She did great with this change, though. I’m not usually fond of second chance romances because I feel like I’m missing something, however, Ms. Blaine managed to show us what had happened in the past through flashbacks that didn’t interrupt the flow of the story and that’s something I fully appreciated and was grateful for.

I found Jackson to be absolutely swoon-worthy and he definitely was my favorite of the two MCs. He had this charming innocence and determination that just made me want to root for him. While I loved Lucas, there were some times that I wished I could slap some sense into him and tell him to just get over himself, which he thankfully did. The chemistry between Jackson and Lucas was off the charts and I could feel the love they shared coming off the pages. I just adored how perfect they were for each other when Lucas got off his high horse and gave Jackson the chance he obviously deserved.

I adored Bash and Shaw and I’m ecstatic that we’ll be getting their books, too! They were fantastic secondary characters and I just can’t wait to read their stories. I hated Jackson’s father with the fire of a thousand suns and I was so happy that he got his comeuppance in the way he did. Sooooo satisfying!!!

I know this review in no way does justice to the book, but really, you’ll be missing out on an amazing read if you don’t pick it up. It was delightfully angsty and hot and sweet and so well-written, the pacing was natural and the execution superb. Definitely a perfect start to what surely be another hit series for Brooke Blaine!

About Brooke Blaine:

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

She is the author of Flash Point, a romantic suspense standalone, as well as the co-author of the erotic series, A Desperate Man, with Ella Frank. The latter has scarred her conservative southern family for life, bless their hearts. Licked, a romantic comedy, will be released November 11th, 2015 and is the first in the L.A. Liaisons series.

If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years. Ella Frank
