Lovers progression However this features an adamantly heterosexual star athlete whose gay bestie is in love with him and is tossed liberally with female bits and in the closet vertones understandably giving me plenty f reasons to furrow my browSo yes I shook my head about 90% f time while listening to this as Blue tries to reconcile these uasi new feelings towards his bff Once they cross the line Blue s not sure about going all in but he s not satisfied in going back to friendship nly either However Kelly isn t about to let him have his cake and eat it too and therein lies the rub Props to Harmon in giving both Kelly and Blue distinct voices completely likeable personalities and a dynamic that bviously clicked It doesn t hurt at all that these two were hot as fire My brain short circuited no less than 8 timesI absolutely believe that the narration by Alexander Cendese and Sean Crisden literally brought Kelly and Blue to life and made them and this story 10 times better They delivered their lines with precision expounding The Age of Treachery on the sarcasm the snark the doubt the back and forth and the above mentioned seriously too hot to handle chemistry between these two UnfDespite my bafflement this was smart and funny and I immensely liked the push pull between Kelly and Blue all the while fanning myself as I listened to this genius narration I m just happy there s a seuel since this ended somewhat suddenly and I look forward tof this mind boggling goodness Thank you to the authorpublisher for the audio in exchange for a honest review The Blueprint gets a THUMBS UP for Best friends to lovers I never get tired f this trope Sexual discovery 101 Blue knows he s not the straight arrow he appears to be and whom better to ask for a gay trial run than his best friend Banter and banter These two have known each ther for eons and it shows in their easy conversations filled with inside jokes and casual snark Opposites attract Blue is a cocky self assured athlete Kelly is not Fun twist The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy on the OFY trope Blue doesn t go all drama llama yeah he s worried about whatthers will think if he embraces his gay side and he waffles Seven Sisters New Quilts from an Old Favorite on whether he s bir not like every Bike Mechanic: Tales from the Road and the Workshop (Rouleur) other hour but he doesn t get all weird and angsty If anything he s too laidback and takes Kelly for grantedSo it s all fun and games until someone gets hurt THUMBS down because Blue is kindf an arse when Kelly admits that the experiment is to him that just sex Blue thinks nly about what HE wants His epiphany is triggered by jealousy and a talking to from ne When a Man Loves a Woman of his friends which FINE we all get placesn ur wn terms But I wanted Blue to delve deeper The steam was just so so For a gay virgin and a whole lot Keep From Falling of UST the steamy scenes were really tame they weren t fade to black exactly but they were truncated and perfunctory I needed way sexy for the OFY angle to feel real The ending kindf sucked and surprisingly it wasn t Blue s fault It was Kelly s I don t even get where Kelly was coming from in trying to what PROTECT Blue Blue didn t need protecting He s a grownass man with his Catalogue the Insanity own damn mind and he strung Kelly along like enough already let the man do his thing before he flip flops yet again I didn t really trust Blue to stand by his decision so the ending didn t feel like muchf a HEA SE Harmon just doesn t write good endings correct me if I m wrong but I don t think she s ever written an epilogueThe ending made me really cranky and cranky is not the new black Normally I don t change my rating for a book but I am gonna do it this time See when I read and reviewed this book I didn t know it was gonna be a series and that there was gonna be a Audio 275 stars I can t believe it but I was disappointed with the performances Blessed Homecoming of two narrators that I normally enjoy Alexander Cendese 35 stars and Sean Crisden 2 starsStory 3 stars I m not a fanf romcoms I have managed to enjoy a few but that has everything to do with the author s style Shrek of delivery In the casef this story it didn t work for me The tone was too comedic I did chuckle every now and then but mostly I was shaking my head andor rolling my eyes I found it hard to believe the MCs were 29 and 30 They acted like high schoolcollege aged boysBased n the ratings it s me and not the book I will gladly wear a defective reader s pin D 45 Stars Something amazing happens in your world when the person you think is crazy special thinks you re kind f special too I don t know if it was just good timing Look Alikes Jr. or what but I really liked thisne And I m kind f mad at myself for waiting so long to read it It pretty much ticked all f my boxesFriends to Lovers checkGFYOFY checkBanter check Sports checkSteam checkPlus relatively low angst I was worried a bit about Blue toying with Kelly But it felt pretty authentic to me the way it all played Architecture for the Shroud: Relic and Ritual in Turin out given who Blue was and his background and being in the NFL Yeah Blue was an ass about it at times But I really believe his brain just hadn t caught up with his body when it came to Kelly Now with that being said the ending was HFN at best I kindf wanted to thump Kelly for his reaction to Blue So in Collecting and Exhibiting Computer-Based Technology: Expert Curation at the Museums of the Smithsonian Institution one way I am glad there will be another book but I also don t want a bunchf drama to go down For now I ll be cautiously He Remembers the Barren optimistic. Ghtens Blue than anythingWhen Kelly admits he’s in love with Blue bonds are tested and Blue has to decide what’s really important He doesn’t want to lose the numberne person in his life but the cost to keep Kelly close might be than he’s willing to payIt’s a good thing his nickname is the Blueprint it’s time to draft a new set f plans.
