How does a straight guy accidentally come out as gay to the entire country music world?
I’ll get back to you when I know the answer.
It all happened so fast. One moment, my best friend’s little brother is standing in a sea of people as his boyfriend breaks his heart. Again.
The next, I’m jumping off stage mid-concert to give him the kiss of his life—
It hinted at something between Becks and Nicky in the previous series. Becks tries to help Nicky out of a situation and their relationship starts from there. I loved both characters and they both had troubles in their lives. It ends with a HEA. A lot of the previous characters that where in the redefining Me series appear in this book as well.
The book isn’t just romance, it’s about family and friends.

Halfway through this book I started to realize how little time these two guys actually spend together. There was no real romance, only issues between them which they angsted about by themselves or with friends. But never together. I think I can count the scenes where they actually spend time together on one hand.

I enjoyed this story overall, but I couldn't help and want more of these characters. I felt like I didn't' really get to know them as a couple in the book and it made it hard to connect with them. Beck was going through something big and lot of the focus was on that, but as a result that left Nicky in the background and their relationship almost nonexistent. I guess I was just looking for more of them figuring it out together instead of separated. ...more
- Miscommunications galore
- Very little communication at all
- lots of emotional back and forth. Make up your damn minds.
- Basically everyone was a huge drama llama
- Too many characters. It’s clear this is a spin-off and you feel plonked down into the middle of the story.
- lots of telling not showing. The MCs are supposed to have had this great connection, but I don’t see any evidence of that at all
- I found neit ...more
Just as predicted Becks and Nari are making music and actually pretty famous. They're still finding their way and figuring everything out. In a lot of cases the PR pe ...more
It is a book about family, and fame, and finding yourself (and I wasn't going for alliteration until about halfway through that sentence).
The messages in this book are beautiful and well done. My only quibble is I would have liked a few more moments of the MCs acting in love/falling in love, instead of just fighting the fa ...more
As much as I enjoyed this book I won't be rereading it simply because it was just super predictable. I already knew the ending b ...more
Both characters were ridiculous and so childish I was waiting for one of them to require a diaper change. The temper tantrums, juvenile attitude and ridiculous YA angst level was getting on my nerves so much I struggled to muddle through the fragm ...more
It did not disappoint.
This book is everything. I absolutely love it and already know it’s going to make the top ten list of 2019. It was funny and made me laugh because, let’s face it, Becks’s sarcasm and attitude is just the best, BUT it also had a lot of serious plot poin ...more
When Becks left town a couple of years before to move to Nashville with his friend Nari and her boyfriend Avery, the three friends felt they made the right call. Becks didn't l ...more
Nicky was difficult for me to get a read on. He apparently had a crush on Beckett, who he considered a friend, since high school, but I never really got the sense of either a crush or friendship, at least not at the start. In truth, I found him a little annoying; he seemed cheerless throughout most of the book. Yes, he was in a stressful situation, but he seemed like more of a stick in the mud than anything, and just not ...more
There were so many emotions in this slow burn M/M romance that it gradually buried it's way into my heart.
I truly loved this love story about Becks, country singer and his friend/fake boyfriend, Nicky.
The story was slowburn, full of questining one's decisions and feelings, dealing with rejection, fearing not being good or simply enough, battling the vultures that are the paparazzi, and dealing with the fallout of one impulsive act.
The characters were spot on.
Nicky the quiet, sweet ...more

This book suffers from a lack of any kind of realism, and not in the romantic, I'm swept away by this beautiful love kind of way. The characters were flat and the main love interest barely interacted with each other, which makes believing they even like each other a stretch. How they end up in their situation, the reaction of the country music industry, fans, family, etc, all felt contrived and shoe horned in to fit the authors' ideas, instead of allowing it to be organic. Overall, wh ...more
All throughout the Redefining Me series I was hoping that Nicky and Becks would end up together. I never dreamed I’d get to read the whole book.
Nicky is the perfect laid back and sensitive counterpart to Becks’ over the top performer attitude. It was wonderful to read about their blossoming relationship.
Overall a good read I’ll be reading the next book in the series.
Who knows. I just know I really liked this book and the characters. ...more
Both Nicky and Becks were childish and unlikeable.
I had high hopes for this one, it sounded like it would be a sweet read. I was let down. Massively. I probably will read the second book since Asher was the only person I liked. ...more
I cried, I laughed, and I loved this story! This is a brother's best friend story with country music thrown in the mix. It is about family, found, family, heartache and heartbreak. I lived this book! ...more
