Character development: 😳🤬😏
The heroine: Teagan – a 21 year old author writing her second steamy romance novel. Teagan leaves her parents home to go stay with her brother Alexander in California. Alexander owns a bar on the beach where all the men that work there have to go shirtless. Teagan plans to take it easy and get in some good writing time at the beach.
The Hero(s): Micah – best friend of Alexander and manager of the bar. He often stays at his best friend’s home rather than at his own, though I didn’t really understand why. He plays guitar and sings at the bar once a week but he plans to open his own bar where everyone wears shirts and music is the focus.
The Story: Teagan arrives at her brother’s house to find Micah in a compromising position. Though Micah could care less. He is the kind of guy who has no problem with the ladies and takes full advantage, but never goes back for more with any one woman. Though he is interested in Teagan from the start. Possibly because she wasn’t falling all over him like most women.
I loved the narration. Joe Arden was perfect for this character. He conveyed the Irreverent attitude that Micah seemed known for. He has a nice voice and I enjoyed it. The story started strong, but I guess I don’t read many brother’s best friend books for a reason and this one reminded me why. There is just too much angst about what the brother will feel and not enough about what they are feeling.
