I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review through the DBML program in the M/M Romance group.
I was not a fan of the second book in the series, [b:Drunk in Love|20647672|Drunk in Love (More Than Friends, #2)|Aria Grace|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1390937733s/20647672.jpg|39941157], but I decided to give the series a second chance. I am glad I did.
I did not think it was possible to like Steve after what he did in the last book, but he most definitely redeemed himself in my eyes. He essentially finds himself alone and friendless, running a waffle stand, with only occasional one-night stands. He lives for 6:10 everyday when his Little Duck walks by, his dream man that he has only been face-to-face with once. Until that Little Duck, Joey, needs his help escaping his abusive ex.
Joey is sweet as pie and I wish we had gotten more from him, but that is the downside of first-person POV. There was the perfect amount of heat and I thought Steve handled Joey perfectly.
This was a quick read, it took me about an hour, but kept me entertained the entire time. My biggest issue? I HATE
books written in present tense. So much so that it distracts me. It takes away from the story. What was an easy 4 star read turned into a 3 star read for that simple reason. It was too damn distracting for me. I will be reading Spencer's story, though!
