First, it should be known that I am a massive N.R. Walker fan so just simply learning that she would be releasing a new book / series makes me hella giddy because I knew beforehand that it’s gonna be freaking good. And as usual, I am right to assume that the first book of this highly anticipated Spencer Cohen series is so full of promise!
The story is about this “lumbersexual” (yep, Google it!) Aussie named Spencer Cohen whose job is to help people win their ex’s back. He’s hired to pretend as the new beau of the jilted lover and make the ex’s jealous, realized their mistake and come running back. It was going smoothly for Spencer until he took a job from Andrew who’s trying to win back his fiancé that mysteriously abandoned him. Things were going as planned when the involvement of feelings started to become a distraction to Spencer’s job. He was attracted to Andrew and it looks like the feeling is mutual but Spencer knew that this is only a job. Only, that’s what he keeps telling himself.
I was just sailing through the book – turning page after page and waiting for something really big to happen. Spencer is likable and very relatable. There’s something about him that is very fascinating and you just want to dig deeper to know more things about this enigmatic guy. Why is he living in the US? Why did he leave Australia? What’s behind the true Spencer Cohen? It makes for an exciting plot to get to know Spencer little by little as the story goes. His chemistry with Andrew was real awesome! I’d like to think that we’d get more of Andrew in the coming books – perhaps dual POV from both guys? The latter part of the book made me stop on my tracks – I loved how the author created the build-up to that “semi” big reveal about Spencer. It was then that I realized how I under-appreciated the first half of the book. That scene on chapter nine made me changed everything I initially thought about the book! It was total genius! I don’t think I can say more without spoiling the story so may I suggest that you guys pick this up asap and be one of us who are so yearning for the second and third book to come sooner!!!!
