Oh my goodness this was a lovely sweet romantic story, it had a kindness in it that made my heart light.
Beckett had always eyes for Levi, the younger brother of his best friend Matt. When there is finally an opportunity to be alone with Levi he is somewhat nervous... Levi is so gorgeous and he himself is... not. He just doesn’t see what Levi’s eyes see.

A careful, attentive friendship with already years of attraction is turning into something deeper.

Goshh I loved this story. It was a short one bu

This sweet, warm and yeah a bit sexy story about how Levi and Beckett got together was just amazing. Ms. Iris soooooo knows how to write not only the feels, but also sexy adorable with humor. There were a couple of laugh out loud moments, several tears of happiness and a lot of romance. I am working my way through everything that she has written cuz yeah she is that good and I am loving every story!

I loved this little story. It was pure fluff and brain candy!

Nobody Else's was an über cute and sweet and I would say cuddly, love story. It had everything I want from this kind of story, little to no angst, sweet characters. a pinch of humor and just had that feel-good vibe to it. I had a smile to my face throughout the read.

Beckett Cooper is what Levi would call cuddly, a teddy bear with a bit of low self-esteem. He's also been in love with his best friend's yo

Nell Iris’s Nobody Else’s is, in a word, sweet. But, not at all in that ugh-that-gave-me-a-stomachache way. It’s just the right amount to put a wistful smile on your face. At least that’s what it did to me. 😊 It’s not just sweet, though; it’s also fun, light-hearted, and utterly worth spending a couple of hours reading.

The story starts out with Beckett meeting his college buddy, Matt, for lunch, except, Matt doesn’t show up alone. He brings his younger brother Levi, whom he helped escape from ba

This was a nice enough book but certainly not worthy of this slew of gushing, five star reviews. Goodness, the bar is low for these readers.

Things on the plus side, this is a normal couple with love handles and a receding hairline. It was kinda cool as you get tired of MCs with cut cheekbones and chiselled abs. On the downside Nell Iris went to the nth level with regards to what she perceives, I imagine, nerds are like. As a nerd I will tell you, yes, my favourite genre is sci-fi/fantasy. As a

Nobody Else’s is a year in the life of Beckett and Levi as they follow the path the stars have laid out for them. With humorous horoscopes and a computer programmer who can’t add, this a cute story of taking chances and being brave enough to take the first step. This isn’t a story of opposites attract, it’s instead a story of two people who are right for each other realizing that happiness is just a cup of cocoa away.

Beckett is insecure, self-conscious, and seems to

I adored Levi and Beck!

If you're in need of a quick and instant dose of OH SO SWEET ROMANCE try Nobody Else's! It's drama-free and has a low angst level. It made me smile, smile, smile!

I loved both, Beck and Levi, and their romance was butterfly inducing and just cute as hells!

They've known each other for years but it's the first time they're actually alone together. Their connection is instant and the words between them just keep flowing.

The pacing of the story was perfect, smooth, and the

3.5 stars - I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is a gentle and very sweet romance. Even though Beckett is in his late twenties, it feels like a new adult story because Beckett and Levi are both quite wonderfully innocent.
Tiny details like Beckett’s hang ups about his weight and Levi’s slightly overwhelming family commitments make the two men come fully to life in a short novella.

For a short book, a little bit too much time is spent on secondary characters

This was such a fantastic read. Low angst, fun, sweet and oh so very cute, perhaps a bit on the instalovish side and once Levi and Beckett get together the book advances at lightning speed, but I didn't even care. Never mind that the featured horoscopes were pure gold!

Levi and Beckett had so much chemistry and were such lovely guys that I couldn't do anything but root for them and hope they would get their HEA. I didn't care as much about Matt, Levi's older brother and Beckett's bff, b

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Nobody Else’s was just too freaking cute. I’ve become a fan of Nell Iris’ novellas over the past year, loving that the author gives me just enough of a look at a couple and where they’re at in their lives and relationship, yet leaves me wanting more of their story because I’ve enjoyed my time with them. Within a couple of hours, I’ve met new friends and fallen in love with them, and Beckett and Levi are no different.

Okay, you know when you read a romance story and you catch yourself saying “Awww…” a whole bunch while you’re reading? That’s this book in a nutshell. Levi and Beckett are so adorably cute both on their own and together, and this story was everything I needed to read right now.

This is a relatively quick read, but was still a satisfying and complete story. Both Beckett and Levi go through the “I really think he’s cute and I like him” phase, but they also get to demonstrate to each other how consi

Beckett Cooper has secretly been attracted to his best friend’s little brother, Levi. Beckett’s self-confidence isn’t good, so when he starts seeing signs that Levi may be interested in him, it’s hard for him to want to act. The fear of rejection and of causing a rift between his best friend is enough to put him on edge. But once Levi opens up more, Beckett can’t resist what he’s being offered. A chance of happiness.

I thoroughly enjoyed the horoscopes at the beginning of each chapter. You will t

What a delightful story this is. Sweet, funny, lighthearted, and heartwarming. For me, Nell Iris is the queen of the novella. Everything she writes is pure gold whether it is heartwrenching and deeply emotional or sweet and romantic. She has a way of writing that pulls you into a story right from the start. Her characters are always very well developed and genuine. And she always gives her stories that little extra, which makes them uniquely hers.

Nobody Else's is a delightfully fun short novella. Can't think of a more simpler yet honest description, its just plain delightful. I just finished reading one of the saddest HEA trilogies that ever crossed my kindle so this little gem couldn't have come to me at a better time. We get to know both Levi and Beckett through alternating POVs, some don't care for that but I love getting to see inside the inner workings of both halves of the couple/would-be couple, it allows me to connect

A sweet love story.

Nobody Else's is a very sweet best friend's younger brother story and I loved it. Sometimes I like to grab a shorter book, novella length or short story even, so that I know I can finish it in one evening. This one was perfect for that.

Nell Iris did a great job of creating a compelling story in a short number of pages. I didn't feel like the story was rushed and because the two MCs already knew each other for a while it didn't really feel like an insta-love story either (I do

Nicely written, soft and sweet with very likable endearing main characters in Beckett and Levi. But my gosh, if the energy level was any lower nothing would be happening at all. The story, itself, while sweet, was rather flat. It’s written in the style of alternating POVs for each chapter but I kept on waiting for something to happen beyond the goo goo eyes and wo-is-me-he-couldn’t-possibly-be-inerested-in-me. We’re talking zero drama. Not even that whole ridiculous nonsense of Levi’s parents fo ...more

Beckett has been best friends with Matt for years. He is bi and Matt and his family just don’t seem to understand that. But Beckett has a secret he has been longing after Matts brother for forever .

Levi has been drawn to Beckett for ages. He is all cuddly and cute and just wants to see where that hair on his chest actually stops. But he is his big brothers best friend.

Beckett’s best friend, Matt, comes from a big family. As in, a really big one with eleven children. Matt is the oldest and his younger brother, Levi, is three years his junior. Levi is also the focus of Beckett’s crush. “I’d had a crush on him for years, but he was Matt’s little brother, and besides…what would he see in someone like me?” Beckett is a bit of a bear, hairy with a chubby belly. When he sees Levi, he “…pulled in my stomach and sat a little straighter. Not that it helped. My belly co ...more

This has to be one of the cutest stories I’ve read this year, and with all the different fandom references, man, I was in heaven.

Levi and Beckett were so adorable that I just wanted to bundle them up and cuddle them like teddy bears! I felt a close kinship with Beckett, being a single child and an introvert, as well.

This book was really well written and even with it being on the shorter spectrum, it was fleshed out well and kept me captivated and giggling from page one.

Another Nell Iris ultra sweet shortie with a best friend's brother spin. Beckett's best friend is Matt who is 1 of 11 siblings. Levi, Matt's brother has had a crush on Beckett for years. And Beckett has had similar feelings for Levi. What makes this book stand out are the hilarious LGBTQ-focused horoscopes that begin each chapter. Levi is an accomplished software creator but needs help with managing the business' finances. Beckett is an accountant and offers to help. I just love Nell Iris' books ...more

I need that.

What a sweetly romantic story. I think that appealed to me the most was the raw honest attraction and appreciation the two characters had for each other. I loved how they were smitten over the little things. That subtlety can get easily lost or is just nonexistent, but it gave this story it's strength.

Also, kudos for having the cover dudes look how they are described in the book!

This was my first read by this author. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. I'm more in the 'like' category.

I thought Beckett and Levi were cute together, and there was little to no angst in the story. I don't know. Something was missing for me.

I will push forward though and read some of this authors other books because the blurbs sound intriguing.

3 big stars!

Levi and Beckett are too cute together. I liked that it's Levi that goes to his brother and announces his intent to date Beckett. The way that Levi cares for and loves his family gave me a surprise with his declaration. Beckett response is lovely. Sweet ending.

Nell Iris is a romantic at heart who believes everyone deserves a happy ending. She’s a bona fide bookworm (learned to read long before she started school), wouldn’t dream of going anywhere without something to read (not even the ladies room), loves music (and singing along at the top of her voice but she’s no Celine Dion), and is a real Star Trek nerd (Make it so).
