5 geeking out romantic stars!!
<Amazon> <Goodreads> <Barnes & Noble>
Yeah. I just did that. Except worse. Now my million social media followers are reading and sharing the rude, smartass message I meant to send privately to my little sister…and I’m officially public enemy number one.
I’m Beck Ryder. Former boy bander. Underwear model. Fashion mogul. And I just buried my entire leg in my mouth—not just my foot—modern internet style, and publicly insulted my sister’s neighbor.
Also known as the woman of my dreams, who loves geeky TV shows, baseball, and giraffes, who’s just as turned on by food as I am, and who has a huge secret that I didn’t see coming.
Now it’s time to grovel and apologize publicly on social media and hope that those same followers who helped start the raging shitstorm will help calm the waters.
Because Sarah doesn’t want the spotlight. For very good reasons that I can’t tell you right now and trying to convince her to be my fake girlfriend to fix this mess and make me look like less of a jackass is worse than taking a kick to the nuts by Jackie Chan.
And I thought modeling underwear made me feel naked.
Trying to start a relationship in the era of the twitterazzi isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.
This book really surprised me, it was full of more depth and emotion than the first bro code book. It even had a not so hidden message about how social media isn’t all that it’s all cracked up to be. That most people shouldn’t be judging everyone based on looks or what they post and how they take it. How many people are guilty of doing this? Instead of just scrolling by they turn into online trolls, it’s awful.
Beck comes off in the first book as this very laid back comfortable character that likes to have fun. He has card board cut outs of himself in underwear EVERYWHERE, just to make everyone else uncomfortable. I loved how everyone in his family and extended non blood family was completely fine just coming into his house whenever they wanted and using what they needed. Beck is the character that is just loving life no matter what it throws at him. It was hard to tell if he was being goofy because that was what he needed to be or because that was how he is. I really liked his one talk near the end of the book with Charlie about what he is like as a boss that really reveals a lot about his character.
Sarah while she is in hiding for good reasons, also has good reasons for coming out of hiding. She wants to save everything that’s endangered and Beck is totally fine with helping her. I enjoyed how Beck helped her realize that it’s not worth it to worry about what online people say about her. Sarah really blossomed while all of this was going on, and not in the I’m going to get all dolled up and look fashionable. It was more of the I’m taking back my life and gaining control blossom. I like how Pippa Grant makes both the female and male characters flawed and real. They don’t have to be perfect all the time, they can like sweatpants and comic books and I’m totally fine with it.
The giant family this author has created makes me want to read books about all of them. I cannot wait to get the rest of the books about the Bro Code, I really hope there are more. Plus now she has introduced me to people in a different area like Shipwreck so I need stories on them too!
