Blurb: My life plan is to be brutally honest all the way to the bank. Don’t believe me? I run a popular YouTube channel called TrashyZane, and my claim to fame is oversharing about every aspect of my personal life. Sometimes while tipsy. Not everyone loves my style, but I have a long history of icing out people who can’t handle me. I have no time for judgmental foolishness.
Except, apparently, when it comes to Beau Starr. His channel is the polar opposite of mine, and so is he. Wholesome, inspirational, and clean-cut. Everything about him should turn me off, but when we hook up following a confrontation at a convention, my world flips upside down. Not only does Beau Starr turn me on, he uses the exact combination of dirty talk and roughness needed to turn me out.
But we still hate each other. I think.
Review: This story promised to be explosive, and it definitely delivered. I highly recommend you read this entire series, but at least the previous book where we get a peek at the dynamics between Beau and Zane. This story overlaps that one a tiny bit and shows us a scene or two from a different angle. Zane and Beau exist in the same vlogging Youtubing community, but they are total opposites, except where they aren’t. 🙂
These guys really dislike each other, or at least what each other portrays to the public. Zane, aka TrashyZane lays it all out there, isn’t ashamed of his trashiness and makes it a point to overshare to his viewers. Beau, on the other hand, is Mr. Prim and Proper on his channel, making sure his image is clean and respectable – though there are a few reasons for that.
When these guys start going at each other, things start to get pretty ugly as they throw shade at each other and the slut shaming and name calling heat up. It is when they discover that the one thing they do have in common and maybe like about each other is how compatible they are sexually. It is through these heated, dirty talking, lightly kinky encounters that they start to see behind the facades and realize maybe they were wrong and there is more to each other than they originally thought.
These guys have quite a few issues to overcome – family expectations/relationships, trust issues, etc. before they get their HEA. If they could just hide away without any interference from the rest of the world, things would have been much easier. Unfortunately, they have others in the community wanting to expose anything they can, Beau’s ex making trouble, and their careers standing in the way. They make mistakes in just about every direction, but they learn from them and are able to persevere.
This has been a really entertaining and enjoyable series thus far, with each story bringing something a bit new to the table in this world of gamers and vloggers. They are all full of fantastic dialog and banter with couples that end up being perfect for each other. This dynamic duo writing team has done it again with this book, making this series one that I highly recommend. I’m looking forward to more in this world, as well as anything else these two come up with!
Overall Impression: I loved it!
