I just devoured this he/they romance set in the publishing world. The main character Preston P.K. who has been in love with his best friend forever but has never said anything and gets accused of not having feelings is so delightfully awkward. He also doesn’t seem to know when to stop talking when he’s nervous and he’s very in his head which seems funny but I’m both those things too. This book is from his pov only so we only hear his feelings and thoughts.
PK has been writing for years and he has his coworker at the publishing house look at his chapters she passes it on to someone else and things move quickly after that. So quickly that he never gets a chance to tell Art and then Art has read the ARC and loves it and it’s all awkward.
This book is so real in its try and fails and heartbreaks. There is no perfect path towards each other and lots of mistakes are made. Omg I felt for both PK and Art as they navigated their feelings. I loved Art’s fashion sense!! I want to go shopping with them.
❓ If you wrote a book what genre would it be?
Thank you harlequinbooks and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
A secret crush leads to not-so-secret romance in this delightful romantic comedy from Kris Ripper
There are three things you need to know about Preston “PK” Kingsley:
1) He’s a writer, toiling in obscurity as an editorial assistant at a New York City publishing house.
2) He is not a cliché. No, really.
3) He’s been secretly in love with his best friend, Art, since they once drunkenly kissed in college.
When Art moves in with PK following a bad breakup, PK hopes this will be the moment when Art finally sees him as more than a friend. But Art seems to laugh off the very idea of them in a relationship, so PK returns to his writing roots—in fiction, he can say all the things he can’t say out loud.
In his book, PK can be the perfect boyfriend.
Before long, it seems like the whole world has a crush on the fictionalized version of him, including Art, who has no idea that the hot new book everyone’s talking about is PK’s story. But when his brilliant plan to win Art over backfires, PK might lose not just his fantasy book boyfriend, but his best friend.
