Our review team is checking out a few of them and letting you know their thoughts. The link to the giveaway will be below.
Heather read Charm Me by Beck Grey.
From the blurb:
Duncan doesn’t “do” love. Not since his ex stomped on his heart and walked away. Now it’s only hookups with no repeats. Until he meets Bill, a sexy bear of a pastry chef, determined to break through Duncan’s walls one sweet treat at a time.
Charm Me is a 20,000-word low-angst, contemporary MM romance about a gorgeous grump determined to avoid romantic entanglements, a sweet cinnamon roll with a heart as big as his muscles, delicious desserts, southern charm, plenty of spice, and has a guaranteed HEA.
It is part of the Love in the Pacific Northwest series but can be read as a standalone story.
Charm Me is set in Beck Grey's Pacific Northwest series but can easily be read as a standalone (though Jamie from Save Me makes an appearance)
This story didn't feel like a novella, which is probably my highest compliment... what Beck did was encapsulate an entire novel into 20K words and it was beautiful... From the meet-cute grumpy/sunshine encounter at the bakery to their first date and beyond, I was immersed in Duncan and Bill's world and there was even room for 3 cats and a dog!
Whether this is your first introduction to Beck or you're already following the series, I highly recommend grabbing this freebie before it disappears!
