From the blurb:

A cinnamon roll viking, a socially anxious sweetheart, and a decades-long secret crush.


I’ve been in love with my brother’s best friend since I was twelve, and twenty years later, Erik Osouf is still so far out of my league, we aren’t even playing the same sport. Not that I play sports. That means talking to people, and my social anxiety makes that all but impossible. 

It also makes my brother incredibly overprotective, and while I love that Stef always has my back, it’s why I still can’t tell Erik how I feel. It would wreck their friendship, and after everything Stef’s done for me, I won’t ever be the cause of that. I just wish my heart would get that memo.


For years I thought of Jules Evans as the quiet, sweet kid who regularly crushed me at Mario Kart, and let fireflies loose in our camping tent. Then he accidentally admits he’s in love with me. He doesn’t remember saying anything, and I’d never embarrass him by mentioning it, but since then I can’t stop thinking about kissing him. 

If it was anyone else, I’d probably have told them how I feel by now. But he’s my best friend’s younger brother. The same best friend who told me Jules is off-limits. That makes this all kinds of impossible. Unless I can convince them both I’m the right man for Jules.

Choose Me is a low-angst, brother’s best friend, contemporary MM romance about flawed but devoted families, taking chances, and sweet cinnamon roll Vikings. It contains no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA.

Lesetiger's Review:

Choose Me was my first book by Beck Grey, a new author to me. The author's writing style is easy-going, and I was very quickly drawn into the story. Both the circumstances and the landscapes were described in detail and the characters were wonderfully written as well. 

Jules and Erik grew up together, and Jules had a crush on Erik back then. Many years later, Erik moves back to the city. He's looking forward to seeing his best friend Steph, but he's less excited about his family. And there's always Steph's brother, Erik, who makes his heart beat faster.

I loved how the main protagonists were responsive to each other's needs - that was great to watch. Jules has a social anxiety, but he is able to relax more and more in Erik's presence. The listener can expect a roller coaster ride of emotions in addition to a sweet romance, which makes this audiobook very entertaining. I took Jules to my heart from the beginning and I loved how Erik stood protectively next to Jules, how he was strong for him. I loved the nature activities. 

It was nice to watch the relationship develop, and I found the brother's reaction amusing. 

I highly recommend this audiobook! Gary Furlong did a fantastic job narrating the story and I could feel the roller coaster ride of emotions right through the narration alone. Gary Furlong narrated vividly and brought the story to life with his pleasant voice.
