From USA Today Bestselling author K Webster comes an angst-filled, friends-to-enemies-to-lovers MM romance!
I'm in love with my best friend.
I'm in love with my enemy.
But they're the same.
They. Are. The. Same.
Lines in my world are blurry between fantasy and reality.
Truth and lies. Love and hate.
Copeland Justice is my enemy. My once best friend. The sadist in my heart plucking and pulling at every thread of who I am until I'm unraveled at his feet.
His mouth says he hates me. His eyes burn with animosity for me. His heart beats for someone else.
But Copeland Justice is the best liar of us all.
A surprised ending…
I’m not a spoiler, so I won’t reveal. The story and the characters were quite authentic, and I was happy to see that best friends, rediscovered after a disagreement, could be more… and not assume friendship was in danger. Also, Cope’s reaction to Penn’s dating authentically reveals his true feelings. The crisis is major, and I really thought I wouldn’t like the resolution. But, great epilogue… great ending… you’ll like it!!
Spectacular love story & swoon worthy hotties!
Oh, K Webster you have outdone yourself with this one! I was mesmerized from the beginning all the way to the wonderful ending with your spectacular storytelling and to-die-for characters in these two beautiful young men. You have giving us a story that is timely and telling of the enormous social struggles of being outside what is largely considered normal and acceptable. I felt every heart-wrenching emotion as Penn suffered in anguish when Copeland turns his back on their childhood friendship after Penn went to far. The angst was palpable as Penn pined for his friend and the love he felt when he was rejected. It was so emotional when an event finally brought these two longtime friends back together and they began to repair their relationship to once again be the friends they were as youngsters struggling with their horrible families and the abuse inflicted. Penn was so patient and understanding as he let Cope determine the kind of relationship they would have. I loved Cope’s journey from angry closed off bad boy to the realization that real love is not only emotional but sexual too when he let Penn in. As these two settled into their new reality it was not smooth sailing as their evil dads got involved, but nothing was going to separate Penn and Cope. The teen angst was there but so appropriate for the story and not overdone and while the sex scenes are somewhat graphic they’re just as extension of the love the characters had for each other. I am always enthralled by this author’s fantastic love stories between men (Dane and Nick are my favs) and the sizzling sex that happens between these smoking hot guys that always includes a loving side to the relationship. Penn and Cope are now two of my favorites. I loved the ending and the epilogue was so good and the perfect closure for the dreamy Penn and Copeland. Don’t let the theme of this story turn you away because you will miss out on a truly dazzling love story from this spectacular author. Loved it! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.
